Well, it's now or never to quit smoking...

This is it. Tis is one of the signals I've been waiting for.

Decided today to cut down my expenses. Even though I get most of my stuff thru other channels, that price increase will probably hit all channels and I will pay again an extra 2-3$ for each damn figure tat was sold at 18$ last year or so.

Since 2017, I used to buy 3-4 of each. 1or 2 to open, 1 or 2 to keep MOC.

Well, now it's gonna be 2: 1 to open, 1 to keep MOC. Back to the pre-2017 era numbers.

And when they switch to boxes, that'll be 1 of each to open and that's it. And it depends what they'll offer. They can sove tese Clone Trooper multiple repaints and variants wherever they want before offering them to Clone Lover Millennials...

If they think they can screw us Canadian customers by rising prices while they offer clearance sales to their US customers, even on new products 2 weeks after these being put on the pegs, Hasbro can screw themselves. TRU even more. :crazy:

The end is near.

Yes, seen this. Well, still be downgrading a lot on my expenses. 2 of each top. Unless it's an army building (other than tese f***ing CLone repaints that I really don't care about (Clone Wars is over and done).

I decided a few months ago I was packing it in on the 6 inch figures. They are also costly and take up considerably more room.

I do like these bigger figures, but at $40 to $50 each I am finding it very difficult to purchase them!
