In all honesty, economics really has nothing to do with it. It is the fact that the sets are garbage. What your saying is that if you have money, you will buy anything just because you have said money.
If that wase the case, why aren't rich people running around buying up piles of elephant dung? Clearly they can buy as much dung as they want just because they can and like to waste money........oh wait, that is what the 5 packs are...pure dung, and I cannot see myself spending 50 dollars on something that came out of an elephants butt.

Personally I'm going to pass on these, but it's not because I don't like em, they're just not for me. The greenshirts will probably be bought because they would be unique characters and I'll leave them packaged.
The Joe 3 pack likewise, I'll get it for Grunt. I'm not so sure I'll be picking up the cobra counterparts though.

Just like no ones telling you that you have to get them, your not caring for them doesn't make them trash to everybody.
it could be a lot worse (cough*neon-colors*couch-cough) but could have been better too (like Tiger Force/Python Patrol 5 packs, which is how i think sub teams should be done ~ store exclusive redecos)
but they are a nice option for Army Builders.
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 love when some one has an opinion that they just try to shove down your throat. Here is a radical concept for you. If you don't like them, don't buy them. I don't care, Hasbro dosen't care, no one cares if you buy them or not. I will buy the Night Watch set because they look great. I won't buy the Ninjas, because I don't need them. But, oddly enough I did not feel the need to start a thread bashing the Ninja set, because I did not want to buy it. And if $25 is too much to pay for 5 figures plus equipment, you need to get a better job.

this is why things become hard to find. we have thousands of people doing this and it takes away from others getting them. and what happens next is they are impossible to get for retail price and then we have to turn to internet where they will be highly priced.
And then what happens is the people that didn't get them now while they are still in TRU and they regret it, so they end up paying more then what they can pay for them now. or they pay high price for one of the figures out of the packs.
save some for others
if you don't have it, buy it, youll regret it.
