That would be great, Rob! Please let me know when they show up...thanks!

All four of my Universal Monsters punches were intact.  Which ones do you need?  PM me where to send them. :)

PM sent, thanks again brother!

I managed to get the SDCC Phantom Starkiller a couple of days ago when they finally went up on the website, happy about that.

Check your PM's, just had one question about how much of the card you need.  I was thinking I'd just cut an inch around each punch instead of mailing the whole things?

I was over at BBTS, and saw they had some new ReAction figures up for preorder (Ninja Turtles, Archies, etc.), but the price was now $17.99 each. Are these taking a price jump?

I added it all up and I’ve spent nearly $1500 on ReAction this year and that’s absurd.  Any price hike and I might start selling, or I’d at least get very selective.

A buddy of mine just tossed the idea out that maybe it's tariff pricing?

Looks like it's official... they raised the prices of every figure on their website to $18, including the really old stuff that people already weren't buying for $15.

I'm going to have to change how I collect this line, I can't justify $18 each for 5 POA.

Crap, I had a bunch of stuff I was planning to order, should not have put it off. I was waiting for the NYCC exclusives to go up but ugh, so much more money now.

I agree Rob, between the price and having no practical way of displaying any more carded figures, I really have to re-evaluate what I am picking up from them now.

We should all email them and tell them.  Maybe they’ll reverse course if they get an earful.  :-[

Super 7 finally put the leftover GID Universal Monsters from NYCC up on their website for ordering. I managed to get all four plus a GID Slayer I still needed. That was $100 right there!

I may cut back, but it won’t be on Universal Monsters, and I am all in on They Live figures when those hit too.

The price is definitely keeping me away from stuff I was already on the fence about though, like RoboCop.

I've got it on pretty good authority that the price increase is just a cash grab and isn't for any real reason in terms of tariffs or materials cost or licensing costs...

$15 was already pushing it for 5-POA, $18 is ridiculous.  I think they've overreached and I'm officially cutting back.  I'm doing the opposite of what you're describing though.  I'm starting with the 12 million variants.  If they want to sell the same action figure 10 ways, $18-$20 is insane.  These 4 Universal Monsters variants and the glow in the dark Robocop figures are the first variants from a part of this line that I collect that I'm passing on.

I kind of hope this backfires and they walk it back, especially since I'm pretty sure they can.  If they lose volume, they might. 

Also, I plan on waiting for stuff to be in-stock at EE and buying things $80 at a time to get free shipping which will undo some part of the price hike.
