I think $25 isn't attrocious but it stings. Hasbro figured out that 3 figures you already have = pass, and packaging doesn't necessarilly sell a toy.
Now 1 figure you want, and 2 you could give a rats ass about...
A lot of it boils down to whether you don't mind what the extras are. For the droids, I'm cool with it. For the other set, I don't mind another Sandperson. Coulda lived without Boba though, or at least seen a significant paint ap change maybe.
They're in the system here at $25 but none in stock in Pittsburgh either. Glad I've got sets locked down because, with the way the line is, I've noticed a big spike in scalper activity around me.
