$20 is on the money for the MM, but i doubt BigW & Kmart will make large retail orders, so i don't expect it too go on sale anytime soon

Is it just me, or is paying almost deluxe price for figures that are a repaint of the same figure over and over, perhaps with a new accessory or head, really value for money? These things don't even transform! They use the same shapeless parts for the body of every figure in the line, including Star Wars, Indy, Marvel, etc. I remember a sale at Myer where it was buy one get one free, at $20. $10 each was worth it I thought.

Sorry about the rant, but with the recent price rises across the board for TFs, this seems like a shameless cash grab.
