Ya got me. I even think that those kinds of prices for the high quality deco Acid Rain figures are absurd. And Hasbro/GIJCC want that kind of cash for tossed together retail quality figures? GTFO

I think that's one of the reasons the club is ending, It puts Joe in a corner where only a few people can get him, while what little does make retail is just as good or better and no where near the prices of the short run figures.

Think about it how many club figures would you have gotten if they were normal peg warmers in Toys R us/retail. Probably more that you're willing to admit, but out of the 2 club figures I do own, I won't open them because I can't justify the $ to customize them.

If the club figs were available at retail I'd probably have at least 50% of them.

If those were available at retail in retro (aka 25th) packaging.. I'd probably get 5 or 6. Maybe all of them if the packaging was extra good.

For $30 or whatever? Yeah, no thanks. I'm good.

I could see myself buying about four of them @ $10 each, which is still a poor ass percentage. I can't see myself actually picking any of these up at club prices though.

When I look at that page of figures, the one image that pops into my head is this:

FSS 7.0-homer-inline4-jpg

They're clearly designed by a moron, a committee, or a committee of morons.

When I look at that (figures) picture it looks to me like they were competing with superhero figures.
