I buy everything, but so far I have yet to get the TRU SRO wave 1. They seem to give me less desire to get but I will probably get them sooner or later.

Hasbro had a good thing going and hopefully they continue it, but they're without a doubt dabbing into territory that doesn't have a huge market. For one..... all of these expensive packs that are coming out are really only going to be purchased by collectors for the most part since it's too expensive for the average kid.
#2...Even most collectors as you can see from the responses here will at some point "give up" on trying to get all of this stuff due to price, storage, and lack of interest with repaints.
These are some of the exact reasons to why so many people gave up on Star Wars and now know better and will drop off early with Joes, ending up only getting what they REALLY want. With so many other cool lines on the market like the Sideshow stuff, and MOTU to name a couple why blow money on items that are only "somewhat" cool.
I know Hasbro wants to milk this and will occasionally plop in a single carded version of what they know people want while trying to sell off the crap at the same time, but people know the game by now.
These 25-$30 Repacked boring DvD, 5-pack and Comic packs warm the shelves for a reason...the collector is wising up. The singles are beginning to look pretty boring as well. Like a few of the others that have responded, out of the next couple waves unlike the past where I bought every one, I'm only interested in a few and that's all I'll get.

Cobra collector only. I have at least 1 of all of the cobra stuff I can find and have 2 of most of it for my kids to play with so they don't jack my stuff up. I have 3 sons (11,9,2 and a four year old daughter). I still need some stuff, red ninja tru box, blue sro tru 3 pack, bats, vehicle 2 packs and the newer stuff, but coming across that is really hard since the 2 closest wal-marts are going by the "no re-stock until previous product is off the shelves" system and target, k-mart and toys r us are at least an hour away.

I get the figures I like for the most part. Skip any that I dont like. The only ones that I dont like that I've boughten is if it's in a comic pack and I want the other figure.

I usually just get the ones I want anyway. I don't have the room or cash to be a completist. I only buy the repaints of certain characters if I like it.
