Yeah, I am also not going to be paying that $7.99 at Target. It does suck, because usually at Target the Joes are in better condition.

went into target today and they had a similar layout but they took the joes' single labels down and replaced it with star wars clone wars figures labels!!!

ya shit at 7.99 a figure... or higher..
I was just looking at all my figures the loose ones i have left piled on the floor
Did you know snow job is wild weasel? aka slip stream in the new conquest also he is "BBQ" or so i have been told..... not to mention gun ho is leather neck and yadda yadda yadda....
I mean the more I look at these figures.. up 'close' and o.o.p now that I AM AWARE they are repaints... I wonder how many 'original' bodie types are there in the g i joe line?
Hawk and duke have all become snake eyes and stalker... and shipwreck is crank case... the cobra troopers been repainted more times than i care to even count or could with all my fingers and toes lol
yet hasbro bitches about "the cost of production"? I guess there bean counters must have not gotten past the 2nd grade because of the fact that all figures ARE THE SAME SHIT ATLEAST 10X OVER?
since when is hasbro spending money on shit thats 20 years old?
I am getting fed up like BEYOND the point of caring about 'new stuff'
I was willing to play the game at 5.99 or even 6.99 7.99 pushed it and if it goes any higher... I am out.. not because I 'can't afford it' but why the hell am i going to pay ebay prices on shit from a toy company who isn't giving me any kind of effort?
Transformers Toys News and Reviews G1 to Movie - TFormers.com
Check out the above link from "TFORMERS.COM'
its the new 25th prime... when I heard the price i JUST ABOUT DIED 69.99 MSRP
for a 20 YEAR OLD FIGURE? with a DVD????? R U F'ING SERIOUS?
I mean for christ sakes... the STACTIONS were 25$ A POP and are 10X better than anything the piss poor 25th line could come up with (other than the B.A.T. must not talk bad about bat oh and the hiss tank.. still a classic after all these years!))
I seriously will be skipping so much of this junk... which is a shame because alot of these figures look cool.. but I can't pay over 8$ a figure for the same thing... more than 2 or 3 times being told that 'well the price is going up again in a few weeks/months
Transformers I can deal with 1 or 2 'shared bodies' sun streaker/sideswipe, Star scream and his 2 brothers...... and bumble bee cliff jumper..
but when i have 70 figures and 7 bodies... and am trying to be told that.. well we will give u the stuff u want.. but we are only gonna do it 1/2 assed.. I would rather go with out unless its feasible to re-use the figures...
quick kick, gung ho and torch, thrasher and road pig would good examples of 're using'
gung ho as leather neck is ok to..
but come on man scarlett as baroness? in scuba gear? ugh
Iron grenadiers aka cobra commander battle armor?
cheap ass falcon with duek arms? aka duke? and a cobra commaner with a crimson guard body and IG destro weapons?
those are the kinds of things that make me just stop caring about what the make and can guarentee i will be passing on 90% of the movie line..
when I have other options like the SOTA SF2 Figures.. and other smaller companies who want to actually create a fan base by doing SOMETHING original... and way better you might pay the price... but atleast i know when I look at my collection of what ever i dont have to have any seconds thoughts or be discouraged that 'oh wow they re-used xyz parts from figs abc for the 29th time..
all in the name of cutting costs and BOOSTING thier bottom dollar...
at the rate I am suprised that HASBRO hasn't just decided to sell the figures directly on ebay and since they like charging so much they can cut out the scalpers which should be take care of with this next round of price hikes... and just make us end the money to them directly... every month u get a 75$ charge/DEBIT from "Hasbro" on your statment and they just send you what ever they have on hand...
Don't get me wrong.. I know Hasbro is capable... of DOING MORE
they have given us "atlernators/the '25th line b.a.t. Snow serpent and many other things like SDCC KGS (mattel but still the same company!) I am sure they have other cool stuff.. they could do.. but they need to stop giving us crap and jelly beans in the same bag
Charge 10$ a figure FINE but no MORE REPAINTS

Wow. I really don't know how to respond.

Went to Target today and the Joe section was up. No figs. But I was able to get me an extra Hiss and Ram\bubble. I was surprised it was $14.99 each and not $15.99 or higher.
Amberbratt.....I feel your pain.
Loyal fan since 1982.
