At least you got a set, some of us didn't even get that.
To answer your broader question, however, then yes, I'm feeling the pinch. I don't blame Mattel for a lot of the financial costs though, as a lot of this is outside their control, such as US postal rates, plus UK tax. It just means that I have to really prioritise the figures that I want. Not that it does much good when I can't actually get them though.
