I guess that's way too much money! If I had that much cash to spend, I'd be dead in a ditch from a cocaine overdose.
-without buyers remorse.
wonderful story btw, I hope you do enjoy everything you have gotten! I'm honestly jealous of you buying all that fun stuff.

Holy cow! Why buy all vehicles and figures in one shot? They'll be around.

It's ridiculous how much toys are. I saw the Steel Crusher was about $35 and my jaw dropped. The small vehicles were $17-18! I think the price point for those should be $10 and the Steel Crusher about $20. And the figures are $8 each. There are a few figures that I wouldn't mind paying $8 for, but give give me a break $8 for that ugly ass Cobra Commander.
I do hope the prices for these things drop by August just like Terminator and Star Trek toys which are now on clearance at Target. I don't know if the geniuses at Hasbro realized that we are in an economic recession right now.

Wow I really didn't think I would get the response for my story that I did.
To clear up a few things...
The BBQ is 6 to a case as is the Firefly. They are part of Headquarters for Heros TRU exclusives.
The money I had to spend was irrelevant. I didn't have a certain about I could or could not spend, but I know when too much is too much. I got a very healthy tax return and have paid off all debts, planned an anniversary get away to vegas complete with shows, food, etc, and bought a moc 25th piper and still have a very healthy bank account.
I never thought about it but I hope the spring loaded weapons aren't what is jacking the price up. Most of the vehicles would be awesome if it wasn't for the firing weapons.
Thank you all for enjoying the story. I will most likely rebuy this stuff or trade for it when they become cheaper or during sales.

From the way the board is......... why should they lower the prices. We are buying them up before the stores can even stock the shelves. So they know - we the fans will buy these things regardless of the price. So they jack them up high and worst case scenario they discount them later. But either way they are going to get our money!

Honestly, it is only $1 more... and we'll see lots of sales on these, unlike with the 25th (at least since January). Part of the cost probably is the launchers, but I doubt it is the entire cost. That would be other accessories and new molds. And better paint apps too! And a larger profit margin as well.... ;-)

Great story dude! I know how you feel. When Star Wars ep2 came out, I spent $390 that night.........yeah, I know.........that's nuts! When ep3 toys launched I spent $290+ that night and that was due to not finding all the figs and vehicles.
This time I am spacing things out. I plan to pick up the HTF figs first then wait for sales for the rest.
