I recently have been in Vaughn for business and drive by the Heroes store daily so I decided to stop in today. I was amazed at the inventory and size but WOW WHY in the world are they charging such ridiculous prices!? How do they survive? In the picture below every single figure was a min. of $60.....these go for $5 at Toy Shows. I just wanted to rant, quite disappointed at the over pricing, and ya I know don't shop there blah blah blah but this is ridiculous it's funny.
Not sure how I feel about these. I collect 6", but for $30 each you're darn right I open them. I'm not really excited about vintage carded 6" figures, especially since they're pretty much all just repacks. I'm not gonna drop the cash to display these in package. The only figures I would (and did) do that for was TVC. I'll probably just pick up the Death Squad Commander, Jawa, maybe Vader, and possibly Leia again for the corrected head sculpt.
I found some chocolate eggs with Star Wars "toys" inside at the local co-op gas station. They're not kinder eggs though, they're by a company out of Italy called Zaini. http://www.zainispa.it/STARWARS/ So far I've only gotten 2 erasers and from that link it looks like there's 36 different toys/figures to collect. Kinder's toys were way better and even those weren't too amazing, so piecing together a full set of these will be a task I'll leave to someone else! Thought I'd report it anyways though, especially since this, like kinder eggs, can't be sold in the USA.
