i don't mind pplaces like BBTS marking things up a bit, it's when they charge more than retail for cases that gets me a bit.
anyways, dang, i had forgotten how craptacular the battlepacks are~ 90% repaints, no new characters. the Barroness in wetsuit and Lady Jayes head/javelins are the only newness, otherwise you can pay $20 for some really lame repaints.
My 25th Most Wanted List:
1. Tunnel Rat <-CHECK! 2. General Hawk (v2)<-CHECK! 3. Leatherneck <-CHECK(kinda...)
4. Jinx 5. Dusty <-CHECK! 6. Snow Serpent <-CHECK! 7. Tele-Viper <-CHECK(kinda...)
8. Falcon<-CHECK (kinda...) 9. Footloose <-CHECK! 10. Recondo <-CHECK!
9 down, 1 to go ~ but i really want a new Leatherneck and Falcon

I preordered Wave 7 along with all the vehicles.
Wave 7 cases looks like a deal at this point. $49.99 for 8 figs = $6.25 per figure, or less than what the new retail prices are going to be. Get 'em now, I say.

Can't beat the price to get all the vehicles + their figs either.
No chance I will be pre-ordering Wave 8 though, L-A-M-E. I really only want Major Bludd from that batch and just maybe Roadblock.

I love the DVD packs. The only figure Im not crazy about is Destro.
Maybe I love these figures because they are from the cartoon, so it has some context. The regular figures were just there. But they appeared different on the cartoon and the comic which is why this line is great.

But yeah, I'm not complaining about the prices too much, just that if I see the DVD packs in store before they show up at BBTS, I'm cancelling. Did the math, and if I had a pile of loot with Wave 7 and 8 sets, the vehicles, and the battlepacks, I'm only paying an extra $2 + $15 shipping. Considering those will arrive over the course of three months, there would be a lot of gas spent driving around.

On another point, does anybody know why the only 12 inchers available individually are Flint and Bazooka? I imagine that Flint will be among the, if not the most, most popular of those released. Why allow people to buy him separately, but not that lame-o looking Dusty? And why are 2 of the 4 12 inchers figures that haven't received the 3 3/4 inch treatment yet? Mysteries. . .
