We all know that everyone comments on the price of gas, tax, etc on total price of the hunt. But how many people actually sat down and did the math. Well, today I did a real life practice to see what it would be. Today, I went on the hunt for GDC Wheelie. The Toys R Us near me that was "supposed" to have him was 14 miles away. Round Trip that was 28 miles. My car gets about 19 Miles to the Gallon and I just filled up my car paying $3.78 per gallon. So doing some quick math, gas for said figure is roughly: $5.57 On the way there, there were 2 tolls I had to pay. Total: $2.00 The figure itself was $14.99 The tax rate in my state is 7%. So the tax on the deluxe is $1.05 So in total, the simple Wheelie Deluxe figure cost me: $14.99 (Cost of Figure) + $1.05 (Tax) + $2.00 (Tolls) + $5.57 (Gas) = $23.61 This of course is not equating the wear and tear on the actual car from the drive and the fact that it took 1 hour out of my day. So to recap. Figure $14.99 Cost to acquire said figure $8.62 But here is the kicker. The store said they had it, and when I showed, they didn't have it any longer. So the price becomes additive moving forward. So my advice to people, never hunt for one figure. Also, if you were at the NJCC and you saw the guys selling Wheelie for $25, it makes you wonder if that was such a bad deal after all.
