Not really. I bought all mine off feebay. I'm still looking for Dusty (he's expensive because of that stupid gun stand) and Flint. Happy hunting!

Back when the online world was new (97-98), many dealers thought the TF and Python Patrol figures were rarer than their contemporaries. In many cases, dealers charged for more TF figures than they did for the original versions. As Ebay made the world smaller, though, the market quickly realized the TF figures are no harder to find than any other 88 figure and the market adjusted accordingly. From time to time, you will some nutty TF prices (I've seen multiple Flints that have sold for $50+.) but you can usually find the figures and accessories for cheaper than you would pay for the original version of a figure. Skystriker seems to be the lone exception as he remains pricey, though.

The Foreign TF figs are hard to find though, Like Hit and Run and OutBack

Definitely the foreign Tiger Force is hard to get, the only one I paid less than $30 for was Psyche-out, he's usually available cheap. A complete Blizzard seems to go for the most, never seen an auction for him that closes for less that $100.
The only complete US figure I had trouble getting was Flint due to his tiny shotgun. I lucked out and got a lot of all the US figures for around $50.

The Wild Weasel/Skystriker repaint is the hardest to find IMO.

I know here in good ol Hot Springs, Arkansas, I can walk into my local flea market and pick them up. The guy has at least 10 boxes of vintage joes just sitting in a corner. Some guy found a straight arm snake eyes in one of the boxes. The dealer knows how much joes go for, but he is cool.
