Man I think I had enough of GW once and for all, I just got word that they lowered there prices again, I think this is the last straw for me, I officially have decided to quite the hobby after this price decrease.
Well on a more serious not, a lot of product has dropped in price, the $45 regiment box set, most have dropped to $40, battle forces are now $105, stealth suits have dropped $17, and most $40 plastic sets have dropped to $30.
So with so many people complaining about price increases, what do you guys think about a price decrease?
That... Is a very surprising result. GW prices are due to increase around the world at the end of this month (just metal models for those who may not have heard) and Canada is decreasing prices? I don't think GW anywhere has EVER decreased prices.
They obviously wouldn't do it if they were making lots of sales, so I can only assume that they are trying to increase sales because they aren't getting enough. If so, thats finally a good marketting decision and a good step in the right direction. I haven't paid too much attention to it, but isn't it true that prices are cheaper in the US and most Canadaians just buy from there? That could quite likely be the reason for the drop.
they are doing this because GW Canada, and GW US are merging and forming GW North America, and they are stream lining the prices across the board, and with Canadas dollar the way it is, it doesn't make sense to have our prices to far above the US prices.
really? I was just in a GW the other day and didn't notice, unless they just changed it, glad I didn't buy anything.
I could definatly see them losing buisness to the states with the dollars being about par and prices being significantly higher up north, Say the Black Reach box is $60 in the USA i think, and it's 75 here unless that's been changed. I definatly debated putting in an order to the US online store, except I'm lazy.
If it's true than YAY! might have to go buy some more models I don't need just to celebrate.
With the new price increase due to the rise in cost for tin and GW announcement that they are fast forwarding their plastic R&D to get new releases out, im looking forward to see what comes out in the next few months/years.
That's very weird indeed. I live in Canada myself and that's a great news for us. Too bad I bought 2 box last week, I could have saved 15$. Is it just me or the new price make it look much more affordable ?
I checked some prices for space marines in the GW online stores here is what I found
these are just a few examples devs dropped to 40, assault marines to 30, I think GW finally did something right.

When I heard this news on the 3rd, we werent allowed to talk to anyone about it because it would get the 'leaker' into trouble. It was suppose to be released the following week but we had no idea why it got delayed and delayed.. but finally, it's here .. I can finally shrug off the restriction and start buying stuff again.

The only time I have bought GW products from a domestic retailer in like two years is when the GLS did package deals that amounted to 30% off or more.
Seriously, the retail on most items was 40-50% higher, and the difference in currencies fluctuates around 5%. For even a single battalion box it was cheaper to pay FULL US RETAIL PLUS SHIPPING than to buy local. Let alone buy at 20% off US retailer.
Here's to GW no longer forcing me to willingly choose to get ripped off in order to support my FLGS!!
This is great news, GW Canada is finally realizing that the gap between the dollars is very slim. This is one of the smartest things GW have done in years.
