If it angers you so much...
I have a piece of advice... "Stop Subjecting your self to it"

Well I think that Collecting is suppose to be fun and inwhich for me it is .... but in a way if anyone is getting angry...perhaps they should find a new hobby.

If you can't stand the fire.. perhaps you should get out of the kitchen.
If you feel that a 'toy hobby' is stressing you.
then perhaps you'd be better off collecting 'beanie babies'
You know who you are ;)
Also I hear "button" collecting can be really rewarding

If available, I would have voted for "People who buy from scalpers". If no one bought from scalpers, there wouldn't be any. But overall, I don't really care because I am not currently buying any current toys.
I love price stickers, torn tabs, a little paint damage, worn gun handles and any overall mild signs of age and playware.

-It's $10 for a vehicle and a figure and your complaining about stands? Really? A year ago we'd just be thankful for the vehicle.
-What's wrong with different harnesses?
-Revolvers are damn classy, DAMN classy
-Zartan's also being fixed after HASBRO LISTENED TO OUR COMPLAINTS
-Hasbro's churning out as many different popular characters as they can, and you focus about the one they haven't?
-It's Hasbro's fault that people don't want to buy comic packs? Or that retailers keep ordering more comic packs?
-He's in the mail.
-Look on eBay and how many people love the Snake Eyes, why wouldn't they sell him? And haven't we loved every version so far?
-Hasbro's at fault because of retailers and high demand? Should they just make them cheaper and make more or something?
This line has a heavy thanks to be owed to us, a loyal yet small fanbase, who made a line that was originally just 25 figures into a beloved orgasmic delight. And Hasbro is trying their best to answer our questions, listen to our concerns, and make what we want to be made.
Doc stickers being stolen? Hey, here you go, they're now sealed in a plastic bag with the comic.
What's that? Backpack holes? Oh sure! Here you go.
The Joe stand doesn't let figures stand well? Here, all better snookums.
Weather dominator? MASS Device? Sure!
You didn't like our new takes on Zartan and Serpentor? Oh, sorry, we'll fix it.
The hips don't let them sit down well? Okay, we'll fix it.
Answer questions for you every month? Sounds great!
Re-release the box set figures on cards for your display wall? We weren't planning on it but okay.
Bigger vehicles? We'll work on it, sweetie.
You didn't like our banana Stalker? Well, I guess we can fix him to green.
Lady Jaye doesn't look right? Okay, we'll fix her up nice and pretty.
What do you want Hasbro to do?
Wash your car and clean your balls?

Scalpers. DEFINATELY scalpers. You can't really hold it against the army builders. Having a skirmish raging on my coffee table with only one or two cobra troopers and vipers just doesn't look right, but I do admit, there should be a limit. My cut-off is 4-5 of a particular trooper unit, which I build up over time so as not to make my local store look like locusts hit it.
Also, I kinda like the minor variations in some of the cobra troopers. Too generic if they all look EXACTLY alike. *holds trooper up* I call this one Bob.
Just my two cents. Peace!
