Pretty sure the original price was $8.88 - not sure why the odd pricing but then again, that is Wallyworld! I think I remember the same launchables being sold for$9.99 at Toys R Us as well.

Looks like these may be about 40% off then. I've always thought that the sturdy cardboard box had to add to the cost.

Wait a sec - what "launchables" are you referring to? The $8.88 Launchables line that I am thinking of were packed in an oddly shaped plastic "clamshell" and included kits such as the Baby Bertha, smaller version of the Spaceship One, Bullpup and several others. If there were any packed in cardboard boxes, I am not aware of them. Then there are the current line of "Sustainables" that are in the cardboard boxes. There are only four models in that line including the Taser Twin, Crossbow SST and a couple others. Those retailed for$5.99 to $9.99 (each kit was a different price). There may also have been some "Launchables" starter sets in cardboard boxes that included launch pad and controller in addition to one or two rockets - these starter sets were at least$19. (I could be mistaken about the latter being in the Launchables line, however, so don't hold me to that.)

This is all based on my (admittedly) faulty memory, so I could easily be mistaken. If so, apologies in advance!

Oops, my mistake- I meant Sustainables. "Launchables", "Sustainables", "Irritable bowe...." all the same
