You could buy them from the resellers a week or two before Christmas. Check their return policies before you do this to make sure they accept returns within a reasonable amount of time, usually up to 30 days. Then after Christmas go to a store and buy one of the many returns at retail price then return it to the reseller. You get the toy you wanted at the price it should have been and some lowlife gets screwed out of an undeserved profit. Win/win.
I know the supporters of resellers will cry foul but really, all you're doing is looking for the best deal and finding the same thing at a better price. They're getting their items back so you aren't stealing anything. Plus, you're taking the time and effort to go through with this plan, why shouldn't you be reimbursed for your trouble? You took the risk, you deserve the reward. It's not like losing their money will kill them, is it? Why are they so spoiled that they need that extra money? Maybe they need to be taught that money isn't everything.
That's the price of doing business, if they want to play shopkeeper they should be prepared to lose money when people find ways around their crappy practices.
