I paid full price when the set first hit and I have no regrets. Still had the reciept, so I could have returned it, but I saw no need to. I was going to pick up more sets at the discounted price, but I saw the last BMF in my area and got that instead as I already had a a battle pack anyway.

I can prove that a lot of people liked a lot of things in this pack, I have been buying them all week breaking them up and selling them at around cost and people have been happy to pay cost plus shipping for almost every item in this pack. If these were sold seperately as a vehicle wave and figure wave I think this set would have been sold out everywhere. (ALSO THOSE OF YOU WHO HAVE NOT GOT A CHANCE TO BUY PARTS FROM THIS FOR FAIR PRICES I WILL BE PUTTING MORE UP TONIGHT AFTER BSG)
My point is Hasbro is NOT to blame for this mess it was targets fault for trying to ream parents and collectors at Christmas time.

As long as i dont get jumpy and pay EBAY prices....I never mind paying full price.....bargain prices just make it more likely that the line will be canceled.

I bought it at full price. Still think it was good deal too. I never had a MOBAT or Crimson HISS. To me, those alone were worth it. I was also surprised by how much I liked the gray Cobra Trooper. I wish they'd single card that one. The other figures were pretty darn cool as well. The Steeler is a pretty cool repaint, as is the Destro. The Cobra Commander is also at least an interesting shade of blue.
I know that many people already had a Crimson HISS and/ or Mobat and didn't want to buy it again. I can see why you'd not want to pay the higher price. For me all of the figures and vehicles were a win/win situation. I bring this up because I'm also a Star Wars collector and have passed on all of the Target UBPs for that line. Just nothing that I really want. So I can understand your perspective.

I actually paid more than original price. I had to write a check for it and it was a day before payday. Long story short the check went through before my deposit so i got a 33.00 charge. so i guess i payed about 100.00 Oh well lesson learned!!

I bought mine full price and it doesn't disturb me they've gone down. I've collected long enough to know that's a roll of the dice. You never can tell how the exclusives will be. Some Target exclusives appear and disappear the same day, never to be seen again, and then others collect dust and are slashed and slashed some more.
If you wanted to break down the cost of the UBP, one can look at it like this (tax figured in to price):
HISS and Driver $17 if single packed
MOBAT and Steeler $22 at least if it had been single-packed
Flight Pod, COBRA Commander, Destro and Gunner, $22 (basing that set on a DVD set price)
Stalker, $8 single card
Short-Fuze, $8 single card
So that's $77 including tax if the stuff had been released separately.
So even though I paid a little more than $60 for it, I don't feel bad about it.

well i too bought one at full price as around here they were so scarce i didnt want to have a starwars UBP fiasco on my hands. When target had Star wars UBPs back in 07 i think it was they were sold out in days and never got any more in. SO while yah i woulda liek to get one cheaper...I don't regret getting it when i did. Now if i buy more i will have plenty of fodder. HAIL COBRA!!
OH i just picked up the new bionic commando figure from NECA today and its pretty sick. Can't wait for that game yo.
