    At least people are getting used to paying $19.99 for a deluxe. :lol  (referring to all of the bitching in the NYTF threads)

    I paid 19.99 for Slugslinger because of assumed scarcity of later wave figures. I refused to pay 17.99 for Kup and earlier figures.

    I've been used to it since wave 3, cause that's the price Walgreens charges. If I had known that Wal-Mart was going to do a post-TLK reset with the wave 3 revision, I would have just waited.

    If anything, the 30 dollar voyager price point is what really grinds my gears, especially since they've seemingly weapon-free and are still using stickers in place of tampographs.

    I'm also resisting $30 voyagers. I'm glad Walmart had a bunch I wanted for $26ish.

    Sorry, I didn't meant to sidetrack. I got Slugslinger for my son for Christmas (and Misfire) to go with his Triggerhappy. I have the TT versions coming for me.. "mmm... gotta have those Targetmasters, Morty.. gotta have 'em. It's always been about the Target *blech* Targetmasters."

    Right now I'm just waiting for Bludgeon, Twinferno, and Thermidor to pop up sold by amazon...

    With Nitro, Brainstorm, and Slugslinger, I counted the extra $5 as a shipping cost despite getting the free shipping.

    But honestly, the prices going up is really going to be annoying. Hopefully, some stores and online retailers will charge less than $20.

    Edit: And now it's gone.

    Finally received my Slugslingers (well, not "my" plural, one is mine, another is for a friend) that I ordered last week...and like I had feared, it was shipped in a box inappropriately sized for shipping. The shipping box was 29.5"x7.75"x6", with a small piece of brown paper as padding. Well, needless to say, by the time I got it, the package looked like an accordion, with the toys' cards/packaging getting pretty much "not MOSC" in the process.

    Why in the world that person in the packaging department decided to use that box is beyond me. Way too long, and not quite wide enough...I'm guessing it was something that they just happened to have on hand, figured "eff it", and crammed 'em in.

    The more retail prices creep up, the easier it is to abandon these lines and plunge into third party realms.

    Provided they don't follow suit!

    You know things are bad when a $20 deluxe is not only newsworthy, but legitimately taking multiple pages in at least two threads.

    IIRC, RTS Windcharger was the same way and he was a $8-10 scout class toy.

    The Slugslinger on Amazon now is $34.99, sold by Toy Dojo.
    Yeah, no thanks. Paying anything over retail for a figure that is now starting to hit BnM stores more regularly, especially from a 'respected' online retailer, is asinine.
    I know there's the fall-back excuse of 'saving gas/time/effort', but that's just impatience most of the time. Yeah, distribution isn't good, but there are always other venues to get the figures instead of paying these ridiculous prices from Toy Dojo or whoever else is peddling their high prices on Amazon or elsewhere.

    Part, if not all of the blame goes on those paying these silly prices, thus validating them for the sellers to continue this inflation practice.
    I can say with certainty that I have NEVER paid more than retail for any modern figure. I either found it at retail, was lucky enough to see it for retail on Amazon/HTS/TrU, or waited and was able to acquire it later on from a private seller for less than retail.
