Yet, more justification for me to have stopped being a completist.

***Gets out desktop adding machine***

OK... 

$20

+

$7.50 figure

=

$40

I've got a good 8 years of accounting classes under my belt since high school, and I still can't see how that **** adds up.

Here's how it adds up: $20 vehicle + $7.50 fig + $12.50 "Only at TRU" sticker made from diamonds.

Actually, I believe it's more Ticketmasterish. $20 vehicle + $7.50 fig +$.50 exclusive sticker + $8 venue fee + $4 convenience fee (oh, maybe the lube is included as you get anal raped at the register)

Don't forget, TRU charges $24.99 (not $20) for mid-size vehicles right out gate, so there's $5 of the cost.  ::) :P

Ah, the dreaded TRU $5 curve + diamond encrusted TRU Exclusive sticker...  Damn, my ledger was incomplete on that one!  :D

Wow, I didn't really intend on picking these up - but these prices are starting to get ridiculous.  I shudder at the thought of what the Wedge X-Wing set will retail for, since I'm sort of interested in that.

At the the Wedge X-Wing set will be something newish rather than straight re-packs.

Has anyone been able to confirm whether or not the vehicles have been given new paint-decos?

I'll probably still grab one of each for my packaged collection, but if I can avoid buying an opener, I will.
