Okay, thought I'd get some opinions on a question, if anyone's willing to respond.
See, thing is, I'm into the 'Monster High' dolls. But the little buggers can be hard to find, and new ones take FOREVER to show up in my area. So, I've been considering compiling a list of my wants [much like the DVD list I already do. hee] so that if someone wants to pick one up as a prezzie, they can.
HOWEVER, scalping is a HUGE problem with the MH dolls [as in, people buying up scores of dolls to sell them at double--or sometimes *more*--price], and the LAST thing I want to do is actually ENCOURAGE such people to continue what they're doing.
SO, the question is this: do you think it'd be tacky to include a "don't pay more than *blah* for this doll"? on a wish list like that? Or maybe say "okay, this doll sells for *blah* off the shelves"? Yes, I know that older dolls would go for more, and I don't mind someone paying a *bit* more if they're old enough that you'll probably not find them on the shelves anymore [like the initial wave.], but I refuse to have someone pay $40 or more for a doll that's maybe $12 at Wal-Mart *currently*. :P If I were to do something like this, I would probably note which ones were likely to be not-quite-as available anymore [like the Skull Shores Gil, which got replaced with Draculara in later boxes, so he's IMPOSSIBLE to find now. Makes me really mad at myself that I didn't grab *him* when I had the chance. >_<], but I don't really want to offend anyone either by saying "here's what I want, and here's the limit I want you to spend on it.".
So yeah. Tacky? Offensive? Good idea? Need input!
