The prices are the prices, deal with it or wait for a sale.
Why? Price is just as valid a topic of conversation as the pros/cons of design, figures, new pieces, or anything else related to the sets and shouldn't just be "dealt with". People have a perfectly valid point that the value's going down while prices are going up, and it can and should be talked about. If nothing else, it highlights that it should be a point for the ambassadors to pass on to LEGO.
I'm with Draykov on this one-- I'm done with the Star Wars line. It's just not worth it any more.

For every forumite/AFOL that stops buying a line due to price, there'll be 10s of kids to replace them. If virtually everyone stops buying a line, then TLG will revisit their policies ... or they'll just stop making that line.

Flynn wrote:Seriously, is that Falcon unfinished or something? Because that looks to be in seriously poor condition. The interior is almost bare, the bottom is...ugh, and overall it just looks so bad.
Morgan19 wrote:Last time I checked, the ambassadors aren't "forumites". Make enough noise, the ambassadors will hear, and can let LEGO know via a direct line of communication. That's one of the points of the Ambassador program, no? Voting with your wallet, so to speak, is fine. But it's not the only way to get a point across-- working through the ambassadors by being vocal is perfectly valid as well.

Perhaps there's a big aftermarket that is being tapped here...It's becoming harder and harder to justify spending money on the garbage that they're churning out. What good are some great minifigs if the sets they're in are embarrassing to put on a shelf, and not worth the money to part out in the first place.
