POLL DESCRIPTION

Some experts expect tin prices to double this year - and since tin is a component of most metal figures, that could lead to a significant rise in miniatures prices.

Have you made any changes in your purchasing, in response to rising prices?

(Choose the answer which best reflects your focus.)

yes - stockpiling

I'm spending most of my hobby budget now, picking up figures before the prices climb any higher.

yes - more planning prior to purchase

I'm doing more planning before purchasing, so that each purchase contributes to my overall hobby plan.

yes - more price sensitive

I'm doing more comparisons, shopping for the best values.

yes - other

I've changed my shopping behavior due to rising tin prices.

no - hadn't thought about it

Oh, are tin prices rising?

no - price isn't major factor to me

Frankly, miniatures aren't that expensive for me, so a rise in prices won't affect me much.

no - but I intend to

Not yet, but I plan to make some changes very soon...

no - other

I've made no changes due to rising tin prices.
