    As I was checking out Amazon for the prices on the figures BBTS is unable to sell me (without telling me until well AFTER I could do anything about it)...

    I discovered this.

    Discuss.

    Wait, those guys are hard to find? I can waltz right into my local supermarket and pick up any of those guys, who've been warming shelves there for the better part of a year.

    If those guys are hard to find, then my names Judy.
    But I guess this helps anyone who's looking for them, so props...

    (Tell me if you find a Terradive/Tomahawk :p )

    Some sellers need to do a tiny bit of research before listing stuff lols.

    You're assuming that the seller is clueless.

    Some sellers will list what they think it takes to sell their product. Mostlikely, the sellers purchased them on clearance himself and is trying to turn a large profit.

    Yeah I'm extremely confidant the seller knows exactly how hard to find those figures are. Even if he bought them for 15 each, he's still over charging for them.

    Maybe he bought them all at Kohls? Last time I was in a Kohls on a toy hunt their deluxes were going for $18.99. TJ Maxx, less than a block away, had them for $5.99.

    I saw them at Ross for about $6.99.Granted; at my Ross you had to actually look for them among the 100's of Ben Ten toys.
