    $60???
    Yeah, no thanks.
    Man, Amazon Marketplace really is sucking anymore. I'm honestly re-thinking my Prime membership.

    I think once more stores get him in and there is more competition in prices, it will go down. Right now this seller thinks he's the only one who will get them in. I thought he was leader at 1st for that price. :lol

    Usually the only fairly priced ones with Prime shipping are the ones being sold directly by Amazon. Otherwise you get things like:

    Vendor A: $14 + $7 shipping
    Vendor B: $21 with Prime shipping

    Prime is great for buying movies and random crap, but action figures usually don't deviate too much from standard market prices.

    Anybody know why the prices of the TR legends and deluxes from wave 2 onward are still so high? I've been waiting for the prices to drop for a long time now and things don't seem to be changing.

    Nobody knows for sure, I believe it has to do with Amazon doing speculative pricing.

    FYI, Amazon now has Kickback in stock for $14 and change

    Well, against my better judgment I ordered Kickback off of Amazon and got it today. Much to my disappointment the packaging/figure wasn't damaged in transit so there's no way to get anything back from Amazon. I guess this is the new reality of Amazon and buying figures from them.

    For anyone still looking, there's a CW Skylynx on Amazon Warehouse for a not-unreasonable $25 and some change.

    How do you find anything on the Warehouse pages or even the Deal of the Day pages? There's so much stuff!
