Yahhh yahhh yuuuuuuck...
I wonder if these means come September 10, Target will raise their single carded Joe prices to $9.99, with Wal-Mart maybe $7.84 and TRU $8.99? That means the internet retailers will raise their non-army builder prices to $15 or so each and army builders $20-25.
At least the movie line will kill the 25th/Modern stuff so there isn't much left to go. They're already veering far away from what made the 25th line so popular (classic character outfits redone with classic card art) and pooping out their own customs like "COBRA Flint." Next will surely be Issue #21 Snake-Eyes that will be a Snake-Eyes head on a comic trooper's body. Pilot Scarlett I am sure will be...Scarlett with a green helmet.
Ah, well. It was fun while it lasted.

I don't see prices coming down anytime soon, or for the next few years, I think prices will increase gradually, not just on toys, but anything dependent on petroleum, and a lot of things depend on petroleum, a lot more than I thought. Even things that you might not think are linked to petroleum, are.
It sucks, but as leisure items, toys are the least of our worries with regards to rising costs.
For now and the coming months, we will be selectively choosing the retailer with the best selection and cheapest prices, but the highest price one or more retailers set now, maybe the cheapest price by next year or so.

Sigh...it's a damn shame, the $5.00 price tag seems so long ago It's barely been a year. **Insert political rant here**
This is going to change my buying habits a LOT, no more completing waves...

Once these prices go up and set....they will never go down even if the economy gets better.

Hasbro read this.
Single Figures go over the outrageous $7.99 that Target is charging and I am out completely.
I'm sure that I am not the only person that feels this way.

I have a pretty much complete set of the "25th" line, aside from some variants... and I am happy with that. I picked up a couple wave 8 figures and passed on the rest, I will do the same on wave 9, and see what happens with wave 10 & 11. The days of being a "completest" are long gone... I can't afford to have meaningless characters collect dust in my basement at eight bucks a pop.
