Now that we've all bought 7 pack figures from overseas, do you think you will still buy as many of these packs as you initially planned on? How do you think this will effect Hasbro's sales of these items?
I for one am now down to 1 Cobra pack and maybe...maybe, 1 Joe pack; whereas I had initially planned on buying 2 of each...

I'll still be buying a few.
I wonder on what scale this sort of thing happens and how much it affects what Hasbro invests in the line.

I'm gambling on waiting for the U.S. release. I can't reason paying $25+ for an Alleyviper, even though they're my favorite character. Having said that, I'll try to buy 2-3 Cobra packs and 1 Joe pack. I'm done with the whole "keep-one-sealed-and-open-one" method. I'm going broke over my addiction!!!

I thought about waiting for the U.S. release as well, but I've already picked up a Strato Viper (Air Viper) with the release of the wave five, I have enough BATS to last a lifetime, and I couldn't see myself army building Mindbenders; thus, I much rather pay the $14.99 for extra figures I want now and pre-order a seven pack down the road...
Then again, maybe I just lack patient qualities...

well i will get 1 maybe 2 joe sets. still 2-3 cobra sets. hasbro dose it to them selves by holding back on the release date. they always shoot them self in the foot with everything as of late. they where on a killer roll with the 25th line then they just let it go down the drain for the movie line in stead of kept it going while it was hot. Now i think to much time has passed for the line to fire up agin.

I'm trying to save for one Joe and two to three Cobra sets. It would be a lot easier if I knew how much the damned things were gonna cost.

I didn't bite on the ebay figures. I guess I've become a little more patient in my 30's. These 7 packs will be the last items to complete my 25th collection (till it returns fingers crossed)............

I didn't get any of the stolen Chinese ones. I still plan on at least 1 Joe and 2 COBRA sets, and maybe more COBRA sets if they're around $50-60.
My reward for my patience will probably be Hasbro cancelling the sets.
