Oofah Jason, that's some steep pricing on some ultimately crummy stuff. If Hasbro bumps pricing on 5 POA to now articulated pricing, I'd imagine that's not going to go over well at the checkout line for them.
I don't buy the 5 POA much at this point, but I wouldn't buy it at all at those prices. The quality just isn't there for it.
It's barely there on the articulated stuff most of the time, to justify a purchase.
