Whao. So, figures are now $27.00 instead of $22.00 (for cherry pickers). And shipping for a single figure is now $13.75 instead of $9.95.
So, each figure is automatically almost $10.00 more? I'm already selective about what figures I purchase when they cost $30.00 each. I'm only going to be more selective when they cost $40.00 each.
And the fact that Mattel thinks that they can just ignore all shipping issues if customers won't pay the higher shipping charges is mind-boggling. I know Mattel pretty much have a monopoly when it comes to decent action figures aimed at the kids of the 80's who are now grown up and don't live in the US. But that doesn't mean they should treat us with so much obvious contempt.
