Your HALO stuff kicks ass, man. I'm a huge fan of the franchise and was playing HALO: ODST just the other night. I've seriously considered buying some HALO figures and vehicles but places like Toys 'R' Us just want too much for them($19.99-$21.99 for a Master Chief or Spartan figure for example) and the selection at cheaper stores like Walmart is just pretty slim. Still...keeping my mind open for when I see any sales and markdowns.
tbh, $20/$22 is kinda cheap over here... When I go to the States this summer my luggage will be full!
Fair point. In places like Australia a single, brand new STAR WARS figure from the more collector-oriented Vintage Collection line can run as high as $16.50 or $17.00 AUD. Countries like Belgium and France have also sold them for in excess of 11 or 12 euros apiece depending on the store you're at. I'll admit, we Yank and Canadian collectors have it pretty easy compared to most of the rest of the world.
