Is there a petition for everyone to have unicorns, too? Let's get that one going as well.
C'mon, really? No one likes spending money for anything, but have you ever heard of a company dropping prices on something that sells well at the rate they're offering it at? Do you realistically expect a corporation to drop their prices out of sheer altruism?
I don't think it will be much news to Hasbro to learn that people wish they were paying less for their goods.

Let's see, Hasbro bases their suggested retail price on many factors: Cost of materials, cost of manufacturing, cost of licensing, packaging, advertising, art, consumer trends, and the overall state of the toy industry. Petitions from people do not factor into their prices. If you stop buying the figures and show that you cannot afford those prices, in some kind of significant number, it will show up in the consumer trend and sales reports. Otherwise, it has no sway or impact.
Furthermore, it's also up to whoever the buyers are: Wal-Mart, Target, Costco, TRU, etc all set the prices for the figures. So, not only do you have the case of how Hasbro factors in all of that info for their prices, you also have to deal with how the retailers set their prices based on their own research.

Walmart has them for $5, Target $6, everywhere else is retail still. Hasbro didn't drop the price, stores did.
