Okay, so the local F.Y.E. store has all parts to Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood. They're 50 dollars a piece. That means to get every piece, you're out $250. Is this too pricey, or is it worth it? You decide.
As others have mentioned, that's definitely on the pricey side. If you did decide to purchase from F.Y.E., I'd store shop a bit, as your local branch sounds to be selling merchandise at a signficantly increased price. My F.Y.E. has Brotherhood sets for around 35.00 used and in good condition.
If you do decide to buy from them, I'd wait until your birthday and/or check to see if your store is running any promotions on their F.Y.E. Access Pass. I used this strategy to snag a nice BoogiePop Phantom DVD box set for less than 30 dollars by stacking benefits - the pass gives you 10% off used items and an additional percent discount on your birthday. At the time, it was also free for the first month. If I were you, I'd go for the free month trial the day of purchase, buy in bulk to maximize your discount, and then cancel at the end of the trial period.
Otherwise, just get it online. Less hassle and, in all likelihood, cheaper.
