I may return them if I can find them at Target or Walmart. I don't know when Kmart became such a rip off. It's gotta be tough to even upstage TRU's markups.
Why on Earth would you feel bad about it?
Here's some food for thought:
1.) We now know that Rumble and Kup are the last Deluxe figures to come out of the Prime line. (PRID is finished, soon it will be Beast Hunters. This was said at NYCC.)
2.) After spending time, gas, and patience, you'd end up spending more than you did. ($15.47 to $18.99 is not a tremendous difference, it really isn't.)
3.) K-Mart, whether we believe it or not, is some form of competition for Wal-Mart. I'd much rather have my money go to K-Mart and give their employees yet one more paycheck and keep them from being jobless, than to give it to the juggernaut known as Wal-Mart's wallet.
I'm sorry, but so far, your post isn't making much sense to me. You found them. At retail. That alone is enough of a triumph. Add in the fact that you didn't have to resort to scalper pricing and/or eBay and you really do have something to be happy about.
Repeat after me:
"I got them at a reasonable price. My money didn't go to Wal-Mart. I didn't feed the scalpers. I found them at retail, which most people aren't fortunate enough to do. I'm one of the lucky ones, go me!"
Make that your mantra, repeat it.
