At this point it's not a matter of good price/bad price. If you're wanting to rip it, buy it when you find it. Although IMO if you're paying $300 for hobby you might as well buy a FOTL off eBay.

Wow. I knew it had exploded... but somehow missed that it’s up this much for boxes. Last time I bought a box of prizm was for Christmas 2012.... $99.99.

Good luck to you guys! Pull some nice Donovan’s!

Next week. But by the 5th restock people will be tired of it. Just like last year's Optic hangers and even Prizm blasters. All was being restocked over and over through the summer.

What's the exact date of retail release if you guys don't mind sharing. I plan on hitting up my local Walmart and Targets looking for some for sure.

I don't think there is an exact date.

the box you bought was a traditional hobby box. Panini discontinued those after 2015/16, opting for only what we knew as "jumbo" boxes as the only hobby release now. 12 cards per pack, 12 packs per box (well, now First Off The Line as well lol)

Greed all around. It's no longer a low-mid end product.

Has nothing to do with greed. Cost was $96 per box. Panini's hands are clean. It was DEMAND that drove those prices up. It's not like retailers are holding a bunch of hobby hostage. They sold out quick and are trying to buy more but tough to find it.

Wasn't referring to Panini when I said that. I'm aware of the cost and msrp.

So the customers are greedy? I would still refer to that as demand and not greed.
