I dunno, man. Their a business. They're out to make a profit. It's not like they're holding a gun to your head, making you buy a TF you feel is overproced. Making a profit by overcharging their goods doesn't make them a villain by any means. It just makes the people who buy overpriced goods kind of foolish.
Unless they just really
gotta have it. I have to admit to a few "foolish" buys myself.
You get what I mean? If you go to a store you know
overcharges their goods, you can't really get mad when you see something you like cost way more than it's worth. I can get being mad about it if you feel you were ripped off after you bought soemthing, but I just can't get behind the idea that they're "the villain" for prices their goods too high.
It's one thing to charge a little extra. Everyone does that.
They have an item on hand (possibly multiples, wouldn't surprise me), and they know it's highly sought after.
They know someone will be weak and cave and pay it. Pay it 'til it hurts. Yes, I do blame the people willing to pay that price, I've been that person a time or two in the past.
But this is exploiting said person's weakness. I dunno, maybe it's just me, but I find that to be wrong. Just because you can, doesn't mean you should.
TFSource never got that memo apparently.
$700-1,000.00 for a complete Fort Max? Understandable. I wouldn't pay it and haven't, but it's an understandable price.
$300.00 for this? Maybe with Prime included and a slew of accessories. As is? Nah.
I bought Classics Optimus MISB and the D.I.A. Clone Commander set for like $145.00 or so. That included shipping.
Granted, I got lucky, I don't deny that, but other folks have found City Commander, with the accessory pack and an Ultra Magnus for less than $200.00
This...is just Shadow Commander and they want 300 friggin' bucks for it! That's insane. That's the sign of an opportunist. I don't like people who would do such a thing. Profit's one thing, and they're entitled to a profit, but this just goes well beyond that.
Buy the combo for $353.95 and save $5.00? Seriously? You don't find that at all despicable?
And I see that I was right. They acquired a small amount, meaning plural (they're down to 1, btw). I could see them charging that price if it was their absolute last one and they're going to milk it one last time, but the entire case, or cases? Naw. That ain't right.
