Meh, was hoping for Cactus Jack. I'm looking forward to seeing it but I'll wait on this one. Getting Kofi but that isn't pre-order necessary for me either. Need to see the Ryder so I can decide if I want that one or the Exclusive.
From 22, I may grab Booker T depending on what he looks like but I'm glad to see him make a Basic lineup. Hoping for a new Christian head scan.
I just pre-ordered a set of E17. I really only want Mankind and Kelly Kelly but I figure once I see pics, I'll want most of them. Plus, if I don't have interest in any others, I can always sell/trade them here on the Classifieds.
I'm torn on whether or not to pre-order the B22 Jericho. I may wait for pics on him.

I would love to have Ryder and Mankind, but $35 is ridiculous. At least for a pre-order. They're only gonna go up in price too. I know you've got to make some money, but nearly $80 for two figures is just too much.
I may be the only one who feels that way. But, I wouldn't think that many people could drop that much on just two figures.

Mattel could solve all of this price issue if they'd just stop short-packing guys that collectors want. It's ridiculous. Everyone here has wanted Foley and Ryder, and now that we have them, we're either going to have to: A) Shell out $40 or B) Try and hunt them down at retail.
I don't blame Ringside for this at all, they're just doing what they have to. This falls on Mattel's shoulders. I really wanted Ryder and Foley, too. But as a high-school student with no job, money for figures is tight.
