Thank God I hadn't resorted to eBay quite yet. I had placed some bids, but the were REALLY low, so as I'd either win them for dirt cheap or not at all. Wasn't quite ready to go all out for them and pay much more than retail value. Glad I didn't. I've been working the trading boards over hardcore the past several weeks, and have still only come up with 4 sets (out of the 6 I need for the carded and loose collections). I paid cost for them in these trades, so I guess technically I've "overpaid" for them (above retail) when you factore in shipping. But that's OK. Just playing it safe!
KB having them for only $5.99 still ain't too bad at all. What were they at WM? $4.50? For $6 each, I'll live, and be happy with them. Now the question is, will KB be getting a similar "run" of these, where they're in one day, and gone the next... forever? If so, better move quick again, since the WM sets all seemed to hit in the same weekend across the country, and then were GONE!
