I say, thanks to everyone who said they wouldn't pay $50 for these 3-packs! Which seems to be the minority of folks here. $50 was crazy. $30 is high but not crazy.

Looking back on it, 50 may have been a ruse all along. It's like when you go out to eat and they tell you the wait will be 30 minutes and then they seat you in 10. It makes you really happy. So maybe they threw 50 out there not only to see what the interest level was at that price but also to be able to turn around and wow us with 30.

I agree. Mattel played this brilliantly. They dangled the carrot in front of us, got us prepared to pay an insane amount of money, took the carrot away and now all of the sudden we are cheering a $30 three-pack. As I said in another thread "Mattel, you magnificent bastards, I salute you!"

Awesome play and I'm not even mad about it. Well done.
