I wouldnt complain if a set of these fell into my lap, its just the price with shipping which puts these out of my grasp, more so this year since im about to have a baby!
Congrats on the new addition!!!!
I understand the $$$ crunch all too well. We have a new kiddo at home too.
I've done pretty well by buying a couple at a time from RK, that saves on shipping, and buying through Bill me Later. If you spend over $99, they give you 6 months no interest.
I got Herc That way last year so it didn't even impact the Christmas budget.
For me and my collection, TFC is putting out the figs I've wanted since I was a wee lad.
To save bucks I've really cropped out most of the junk Hasbro is pumping out.
The candy colored monsters from the new beast hunters line are a massive disappointment.
I'd rather shell out for one or two kick @$$ combiners a year than fill my shelves with the current crop of junk.
Even with a lot of 3rd party stuff on the horizon, I think I'll be spending the same or less this year than last.
