The higher prices have shyed me away from buying figures that I don't necessarily want all that badly. For example, I really want The Deleted Scene Luke, Leia, and Lando. I would like to get the Mon Calamari Pilot. I have some interest in Colonel Cracken. So, if I were to see these 5 figures in the store I'd buy up Luke, Leia, and Lando. However, more than likely I'll let the other 2 sit there. I may or may not pick them up later.
Now compare that to when the figures were around $6.50 or less I would buy them all up without hesitation. Now it's a "What do I really want to get here?" I may never pick up those other 2 figures because in another wave I may want Maul, Kenobi, Jinn, but I may let the Naboo Royal Guard, Gungan, and Anakin sit.
In the end I may end up buying half of the figures I would have bought if they were cheaper. This kind of thinking on my part increases each time the prices are uped. It may come to a point where I have to decide "I'm going to pick up Deleted Scene Luke, but leave Leia and Lando on the pegs."
By that point I am only buying 10% of what is out there where in the past I'd probably by 90-100%.
