    By "Random" they mean "the figure they still have a ton of".

    Toywiz will do anything to get money.

    Nah. I think it's actually kind of cool.

    I remember being a kid and buying "Grab Bags". Just paper lunch bags with random stuff in them. It's cool because of the mystery of not knowing exactly what you're going to get.

    It's the same reason why people buy the Mystery Hotwheels and collector/game cards in packs. It's exciting to see what you get when you open them up.

    Yeah, that is crap. But I'm more appalled at the $44.99 price tag for the voyager Fallen.

    Except "grab bags" are traditionally cheap. $15 for a random Deluxe does not qualify.

    Well, carnival booths do grab bags. And after dealing with ToyWiz a few times, I can say they can be shady like carnies. So...

    Why would I want to pay $5 above retail and not even get to pick the figure I want/need?

    I remember Toywiz from back when I still collected Yu-Gi-Oh cards. The cards were ridiculously expensive, so I pretty much just looked at the cards.

    Nice to see that some things will never change:lol
