Oh boy. I don't like that. Breaking the $30 by even a little bit makes people think even harder before spending. This is a pretty nice wave of figures though.

It will be interesting to see if TRU matches them on the NEW styles coming later this spring.

It's not a problem for me. I stopped to collect the 6 inch since 2 years. Too expensive, too complicated to get and too many exclusive impossible to find.

Hasbro makes products, but it's kind of quest for customers to find them.

The day hasbro stops Vintage collection, it's the end for me.

I only collect Bespin-themed ESB characters in 6" so that's one way to avoid buying too many. I recently decided to pick up the 6" Mandalorian figures largely due to lack of anything in 3 3/4" scale.

If Hasbro wanted to ensure that I didn't pick up anything else, this is a good way to do it :-/
