I buy from Wal-mart and not online because . . .

Wal-mart sells their expansion sets for $9.99. Housemouse sells theirs for 13+ as well as S&H. I'm just too poor to spend and extra 6 or so bucks per set, but I really hate Wal-mart.

Is there an on-line equivalence?

No, because Wal-Mart actually sells things below cost in order to drag you through the other isles hoping you'll buy things that actually make a considerable profit. Online stores don't have such luxury. I'm sure if you look you'll find several threads on the topic.

Target's prices are comparable to Wal-Mart.

I feel dirty shopping WM sometimes. But, they are cheap, and I am a teacher, with children. So, too bad, I have to buy cheap if I really want it. 'Sides, I always find super delas there like MS for 7 bucks and RTTFs for 5.

I also wish Target stocked HS as fast as WM does.

I'm with you all the way, however, I ran out of patience on Wave 6 and ordered through HouseMouse. I am tired of not finding anything, and I need 5 of all commons..... I am at peace.

p.s. I am pained at the thought of Wave 6 sitting on the shelves here eventually, and me not buying them to create the demand on the system, thus pushing Wave 7 back. Yuck.....

Yeah, the added cost is a downer. On the other hand, there is product that I can't get my hands on unless I go through HMG. So, I'll be hitting HMG soon, I hope.
Plus, I've heard nothing but good things about HMG service. Makes it a tug of war.

I'd never pay an extra cost for something online. I'd feel as if I am allowing someone to rip me off

same deal for me, 5 of each common.

if it weren't for the Chicagoland game store chain Gamer's Paradise, i would be doing all my "new release" purchases through HouseMouse and HasbroToyShop. wave 6 is nowhere to be seen in my area at Walmart, Target or TRU. fortunately i did the full wave 6 grab from GP before it sold out.

btw, why is this thread in Heroscape News ?

I expect that there will be an online source cheaper than what's out there now (and/or a current source will lower prices) once WotC takes over distribution some time this year, but I could be totally wrong.

While I won't argue with point 3, points one and two are an illusion if you're at WM buying toilet paper anyway and if you don't drive all over town on a hunt. Or if your time is worthless, anyway.

Part of the thrill for me is to buy things at the cheapest price I can, so while I have no doubts that HMG is superb and wonderful and the bees knees, I would not feel good about myself if I spent potentially twice the price for something now when I could wait. That's why I don't buy the latest videogame systems... because if I wait a year or two I'll spend at least half the money. There's very little I MUST have now... except for Marvel Heroscape, I guess.
