Seriously a joke and a slap in the face. All their figures should have been like $7-8 for Black Friday. They would have sold boatloads, I cannot fathom how they stand pat like this with their absurd prices and expect collectors to come running. I personally hope BF was a total failure for them. They will fold as a company soon if they keep on this path.
Yeah, if they'd done a proper sale I'd have bought the stuff I've skipped since the price jump. Which, is this list:

They Live - Ghoul
They Live - Female Ghoul
They Live - Black and White Ghoul
They Live - Black and White Female Ghoul
Megadeth - Vic
Transformers - Soundwave
Transformers - Starscream
Transformers - Bumblebee
Transformers - Jazz
Transformers - Megatron
Transformers - Optimus Prime
Universal Monsters - Invisible Man
Universal Monsters - Bride of Frankenstein
Universal Monsters - Dracula
Universal Monsters - Phantom
Universal Monsters - Frankenstein
Universal Monsters - Creature
Universal Monsters - Glow in the Dark Dracula
Universal Monsters - Glow in the Dark Bride of Frakenstein
Universal Monsters - Glow in the Dark Frankenstein
Universal Monsters - Glow in the Dark Creature
Ninja Turtles - Bebop
Ninja Turtles - Rocksteady
Robocop - Glow in the Dark
Robocop - Glow in the Dark Battle Damage
Robocop - Glow in the Dark Emil Antonowsky
Pee-Wee - Pee-Wee Herman
Pee-Wee - Captain Carl
Pee-Wee - Conky
Pee-Wee - Chairry
Pee-Wee - Magic Screen
Pee-Wee - Randy and Billy

So that's 32 figures I'd have normally bought at $15 a piece. Meaning, if they'd just kept charging $15 each, they'd have made $480 (forget tax and shipping since they don't keep that) from me that this move has cost them.

So they have to be making more out of the extra $3 per from everyone who hasn't quit to justify that. It's a 20% increase, so I think the math would be that they have to lose less than 20% of their sales for this to work in their favor. They've lost 100% of mine, in many ways they're doing me a favor.

Yep - they have lost 100% of my business as well. I'm with you on many of your choices, though I'm really bummed I can't buy any of the Universal Monsters stuff. I have such an affinity for that whole universe and they are just pissing away profit and money. $18 a pop - my a**.
