Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

Some retailers on the East and West Coasts have sold Star Wars action figures for as high as $11.99 apiece, with Target being the worst offender in higher income metro areas.

Even in middle America the price of a basic action figure has risen from about $4.99 at the end of the nineties and the early years of the 2000's to at least $9.96 today. The prices are almost sure to break the four-digit threshold even in small towns as this decade progresses, and I could easily see a basic Hasbro action figure costing twelve bucks before tax by the time Episode VII hits theaters and toy aisles in the spring of 2015.
Human instinct is pretty strong. You can't expect us to change overnight.
