That's where I'm at too.  I open them, so packaging means nothing.  I don't play with them, so articulation doesn't mean much to me either.  For me, something in the middle that's reasonably priced and lets them start actually putting out more product would be just fine - as long as the sculpting looks good and they're not total statues to the point where they stop being action figures.

But overall I feel like the clearance crowd on vehicles is a nail in the coffin.

I took to calling them Clearance Vultures.  It seems like an apt description for these circling scavengers. 

Regarding the packaging?  Last night I saw the boxes for the Marvel Retro 3.75Ē figure 2 packs for the first time.  And itís all cardboard!  The presentation and the artwork were good, and it didnít even occur to me until today that there was zero plastic in the packaging.

I always find it ironic that the people that sit around waiting for vehicles to go on clearance then bitch when they miss out on them because other people bought them all.
This is the way.


I have spoken.

Or complain that the clearance price isn't low enough. And then kind of demand other collectors check their local stores to help them get the vehicles at the lowest clearance price possible. Then complain even more. I ******* hate collectors sometimes.
