To all the kindred in spirit The Vintage Collection collectors: It’s time to talk about $26.99 and $20.99 Star Wars action figures that should be $12.99 or $13.99 instead. One of my most-favorite commenters here at JTA, Sven RedBeard, either coined or stole the term “Boba Debt,” and I think it’s the PERFECT description to let Hasbro know that this insanity must stop. Adding an extra ‘hat’ does not warrant a $10-$12 increase. This line isn’t The Black Series 6-inch line, and it’s unacceptable. Hasbro needs to find ways to get back to basics (literally as in basic figures) and cease the overpricing, gouging, and abject disrespect they are showing to the longtime collectors of this line. Just because the action figure is Boba Fett doesn’t give Hasbro license to charge $20+ for it, only to release a $12.99 version after they’ve price gouged us. Something’s missing, and none of us should find this acceptable. And Hasbro, you need to right this travesty immediately.
