I only have 2 and I bought both off Hasbrotoyshop for $6.99 plus shipping and minus the pony10 discount (whatever that works out to). I refuse to pay more.

Got two at WM for $5.99/ea (price matched KM). Want a couple more, but I will not pay more than $6.99, and refuse to buy from Target.
The only figure I will ever be willing to pay more for is crystal Wraith.

So much drama 'n the LBCs

I've spent way too much time driving around Northern California's Silicon Valley area stores, looking for B.A.T.s amidst the other crap out there.
I've found a double-set of all of wave 9 (1 Ninja Ku, I don't want one to open, sorry Hasbro), but wanted a few open B.A.T.s to actually open, so I've been waiting and waiting, and now that wave 10 is coming out soon, I decided to just bite the bullet, and I bought 3 B.A.T.s off Amazon for $10/figure.
What it boils down to, is $7.99 at Target (there are few Wal-Marts out here) plus sales tax is well over $8, and my time and gas is worth way more than the remainder that it takes to get to the Amazon price plus shipping.
The problem with my area, is either low distribution, or average distribution of plastic crack, and a LOT of young nerds with LOTS of expendable income.
So G.I. Joe 25th on the pegs? Unlikely, unless you're the comic shop/scalpers going at opening hours or you find them by somehow miraculously walking past as they're being put on the pegs.
I mean, I've had some luck, or else I wouldn't have the 2 B.A.T.s I have found at Target, but those guys claiming 17+ B.A.T.s all bought at Wal-Mart prices? That's not happening out here, I don't think. Congrats to you guys, though.

I have bought 12. The most I paid was at Hasbrotoyshop minus the discount.
I'm the best there is at what I do, ha ha! But, what I do isn't very nice, ha ha!

The most I will pay is 6.97, Wal-Mart's price. I have found 3 so far. This might be a little ot, but not much. I though Hasbro was supposed to step up production with this wave. I can't see that. I have seen they have added to the already peg warming wave 8. I think Hasbro has really dropped the ball with this line. You see plenty of other lines they make warming the pegs. They have had over a year to get the production numbers to levels where they should be. But instead of increase numbers, all they have increased is the price from 4.99 to the current levels with another increase coming this weekend.

I had 4, from 2 BBTS revision cases, so in total I paid approximately $6.25 each not including shipping. I opened one, traded another, and promptly sold the 2nd sealed case. No doubt that he is a cool toy, but I don't care for the character in the least, or for post-1985 Joe characters generally. Plus, I strongly anticipate Hasbro pumping out the repaints in "army builder" packs of some kind in the future. If I ever feel an inclination to get more, I'll do it that way when they'll cost $5 each or so.
Back off man, I'm a scientist.

My limit is $10. and if they are ordered, either through a member or off ebay, that 10 includes shipping. I just bought 5 from a member here for $50 dlvd. I would never pay more than that. I am at 11 right now.

I've never seen them at retail, had to purchase a case to get mine, but I would never shell out to eBay for them much as I'd like to get a few more.
