The $5- bucks is the reason why I bought it. Anything more I just can't justifying buying.

$5 is what they should be selling for in the 1st place. $7-8 is freaking ridiculous. I still have my cards back from the 80's with price tags on them and the early 80's it was a $1.25 for a figure!!!
I know, I know...it isn't the 80's anymore (sniff) but if and when it goes back to the $7-8 mark I will go back to being highly selective.
they went a little crazy and kept creeping the price up which hurt sales IMHO. The price point $5-6 is perfect at this time in history (inflation) and with the economy. I also have to wonder what Target will do. Their price tags were Price Cut tags not Temporary Price Cut tags....they have both just look around the store, which would indicate more of a permanent price reduction. Wal-Mart have them on Rollback which means a temporary price cut. In Wally world when they drop the price more permanently it gets a "new lower price" tag

$5 prices / 2 for $10 sales resulted in me buying more than I otherwise would have.
$7.99 means I buy less figures and be more selective about the ones I do buy.

The prices will go back up sometime after X-mas, WM did the same thing with SW figures about two years ago. They also have reduced SW again this year.

$6.99 max. And even then I'd be a lot more picky.
Have to trade:
-MIB Twin Cannon
-MIB Desert Ram
-POC Low Light
-POC Destro (v27)
-POC Shadow Tracker
-POC Snake Eyes (v54)
-25th Red Ninjas
-25th Ninja Vipers
I don't care if the figures are loose or even incomplete :-)

I got what I needed from the sale (2 figs) so they could jack it up to $19.99 for all I care.
Anything but to face ourselves as we are...

I know it won't last but if they can sell them for $5 now, they could sell them for $5 all the time.
