Wow, price bump on the pilots sucks... $29.99 isn't attrocious, but sucks nonetheless.
I got an extra set I was debating taking back but I think I'll hang onto it now.
I noticed how all over the place WM is with their pricing, at least here...
One store I frequent had Legends and CW up to about $8 each, and Vintage still marked at $8-ish but ringing up for $9-ish. I mentioned it on checkout and got my $1 back no hastle on it, and the guy didn't care one iota so I'd say they're still marked wrong.
Another store I was at this evening had Legends and CW marked higher but Legends scanned $6.96 and CW $7.88. Vintage were priced and scanning for like $8.96 or whatever the hell it is. Had a ROTJ Luke I wanted, wave 5 repack, and I couldn't pull the trigger because of the price-hike. I wanted to replace my Endor Luke with him by swapping gear, and I just couldn't bite. Stuff like that is where the price hikes will see me cut back.
Prices all over creation though, as others have seen I guess.
