You also assume that you can easily find the figure you want at the higher price by going to one store. In my area that is definitely not the case. The figures I want are just as scarce at the higher priced stores as they are the lower priced stores.
The way I see it I'm going to toy hunt regardless, and I toy hunt at all of the major stores. I tend to check the lower priced stores first, then I move on to the higher priced stores. I don't get paid by the hour in any case. I've chosen to spend my free time toy hunting, so I'm going to try to get the best price I can find. The stores I toy hunt on a particular day are all in the same proximity as well, so it makes things easy for me. I'm not driving all across town. I hit a major retail area, and I'm done for the day.

I refuse to pay more then 5 for figures these days. However, I would gladly pay up to 8 for 25th/ME figures if they came back.
The last two figures I bought I paid 12 and 16 for (those being RESO SE before he was released and Alpine), and with those two my collection was complete.
Ive got no reason to buy RoC or PoC stuff other then for parts...

I wouldn't say that I love paying $8 for figs, but I can't really complain about it either. I mean, as a kid 25 years ago, I think I was paying about $3.25 per figure, so the increase just doesn't seem that unreasonable to me. $5 seems like a steal and I'm happy to pay it, but I don't expect it to last.

This thread should be titled "Why are you paying $8.00 for Joe's at TRU" since Walmart is charging $5.00 and Target is charging $5.99
Hell even Kmart is charging less than $8.00, I think they are $7.49
So who is paying $8.00 for Joe's at TRU?

$8 and above is far too much for any joe. All those ROC can remain at Wally for 5 bucks. God those figures suck!!!
Anything but to face ourselves as we are...

I haven't paid $8 for a Joe in probably 3 months. And even then, it was rare that I did that. The sales since August have been awesome.
