Yup, and I wouldn't blame you a bit. I'm already thinking that way between that stunt, the temporary reduction that most people probably didn't get a refund on or even know about and then the comic con stunt today [/fanboy rant].
I love the 3.75" stuff, it's still the core of my collection but it's to the point where with crap like this happening I'm happier to send my money to Gentle Giant, Sideshow, Medicom and the like. I've had a hard time for the past several weeks even looking into the new 2007 forum here at JD simply because it looks like they (Hasbro) are just trying to glut the market as fast as they can before the memory of the movies is replaced by something else. Not an unreasonable approach I suppose, but frustrating ultimately.
As I posted in the 2006 Lucas family thread I get the formerly $35 (plus shipping) set for $15 now. I can throw Zett away since I already have him from the basic line and still only pay a hair over $5 for each of the other Lucas clan. Perfectly reasonable to me, but they sure burned a lot of folks on that.
