Same here, I was really interested in getting the Starscream (since it was an homage to the G1 mode instead of Movieverse) and the little Kreons that came packaged with them. The problem I have - if I got one, I'd want to collect them all. Then Christmas came...
I got a nice gift card that was burning my wallet up, so to speak. I decided I would get the Starscream set. Found it onsale at Amazon for $19.99 ($10 off MSRP) and was good until I saw Megatron was also on sale. The completionist in me started up. I'd price checked other online outlets, trying to find the best prices. As mentioned in an earlier post, Sentinel Prime can be had for $20 if you order from Walmart.com, I also got Optimus for $45.
I've had a lot of fun putting these guys together, and they are unique to other items I have on display. So, back to being a completionist... I'm left with the smaller sets to pick up, and I've been picking up 1 every week or two. I'd like to get them at a sale price, but at least the most expensive one for me is the "deluxe" Bumblebee at $24.99. I can handle those prices.
The Kreons melt my adult heart, further justifying my expenses.
