I don't know, I don't consider $9.99 figures a plus I guess... Exclusive or not. $7.99's not even pallatable most days. So I can't say I look at $9.99 as a value. And as far as blaming TRU for not having stuff, that's to each their own... It's like KM running a BOGO sale and not having anything in stock worth buying (which they've done in the past, though they've also done the opposite and had stuff nobody else did in stock as well).
My main point was, like CHEWIE just said, it's a desirable figure... Not just one, but a couple. So $9.99 kind of stinks, and buying $25 of things you may not want that badly to get it "free", equally stinks.
I'm more curious to see what the now exclusive last wave of EU Legacy figures chime in at.
