I know how you feel. Oh and I did check the Toys R' Us site and US SHF Red and Gold Samurai Rangers are some what less expensive than their Japanese counterparts. I mean $34.99 is okay. but should be more reasonable.
You guys have to remember that this figures are only sold in stores, that means there is no shipping and handling. It's only 34.99 + tax, which already makes them cheaper than buying them online (provide it that you find them).two words: here's hoping.
But they should have just sold it at 29.99. remember, you still have to pay additional tax, which makes it more expensive!
