Very sad and so predictable
on February 6, 2013
My star rating is for the "fun of the game" only. This was so predictable. One day after the FREE giveaway in New York, here we have a $14.99 figure for almost 250.00. I love the game Skylanders, loved Spyro and was so excited to see this technology applied to my favorite little dragon. My grandkids love the game, I bought all the figures for us so we could play. Now, I hate what has become of the scalping of the game figures on a game rated for six year olds and up. Asking almost 250.00 for the Ninjini character when it is not even necessary to use to win the game...I worry that there is some serious OCD going on if you feel so compelled to have this character and can't wait so have to buy at this price. Spend that money on a therapist. I am not against anyone selling something other people want and making a decent profit, but this type of pricing is unjustifiable. Please wait to buy this character if you can and you will see the price drop dramatically soon enough. I truly hope the persons having this character for sale did not beat out some poor kid who stood in line for hours to get it. People, please don't throw food to the bottom feeders. This figure will be out soon enough for everyone, and without the high dollar stamp of the scalpers. It is nice to complete a collection, it is hard to ignore OCD if that is the demon you are fighting with, but please help get these types of things under control long enough to put scalpers like this out of business. If it were a reasonable price and still with profit, I wouldn't be writing a complaining note, but 249.00 is ridiculous You don't need this figure to win the game, it is a part of the next wave and it will become available for all of us at a normal price with some patience and hunting. I hope to see this listing remain "listed" for a long long time with no sales. I would pay 50 dollars if I had a child with a birthday coming up, but 250, that would make a person an idiot to pay that price even if they had money to throw around. Enjoy the game, enjoy your kids playing it and wait a little while longer to complete your collection. If you have this kind of money to throw away....Give it to a charity!!!
