I know, I am really putting it out there.
I all seriousness, I have no reason to even look for figures at TRU. I order online as I always have done since 2006 but BBTS has not been fulfilling my orders for the extra army builders so I have to hunt for the extras I want. I have a lot of figures that I need to return right now from my 4 recent cases. I plan on buying more at least x7 Senate Guards, Jango & Obi. I will return all of the extra Grevious's, Sandtroopers, Clones, Vaders in their place. It's still worth it to me to order by the case. Outside of exclusives, TRU lost my business on everything else. I can deal with a price increase to $7.99-$8.99 but unless everyone is charging $10.99 no soup for TRU!
Whether we like it or not we are experiencing the beginnings of 70's style inflation. Everything is getting more expensive, if I am going to pay more, which I am willing to do as the product is worth it to me, I am going to order it by the case & have it delivered to my door for the same price without driving around aimlessly. Since I live in the heavily taxed IL it's actually cheaper for me to order online now.
I remember when EP1 figures hit $7.99, I hope in a few years we will see prices drop again. Time will tell...
