Collectible minis...worse than crack

The product design braintrust at Wizards of the Coast is fiendishly adept at coming up with new ways of separating gamers from their hard-earned shekels, but they have really outdone themselves when it comes to the collectible miniatures. Those mysterious little booster packs with their promise of that long-sought rare figure that you simply can't live without. The endless weighing to see if you can find a really heavy pack that holds an elusive large figure. The heartbreak when a series is discontinued and there still a few figures you haven't got. The outrageous prices that crappy old Harbinger minis fetch on eBay. There ought to be a law against it.
