i buy the 12 inch gi joe's as body doners for my 12 inch star wars stuff. but i was at wal-mart yesterday, and they're trying to charge $20 for a carded joe. these are the ones that usually sell for about $9 or $10. i haggled with the register girl and got it for $10 bucks after explaining the difference between a boxed and carded figure and showing her some other carded joes that were priced at $9, but i went back today and they now had the price tags on the j-hooks. if you guessed they were $20 bucks, you're right.

That's bonkers, 12" Joe sales aren't exactly screaming off shelves, especially the lower-end generic stuff with the mid-90s bodies, so why jack the price up double? I'll certainly be avoiding them at that price!
