So I just visited my local exotic pet shop today and I noticed they have more of a selection than 5 months ago. They have 2 P. regalis and 1 P. hanumavilasumica. All three are female and about 4" DLS and all three are priced as $200. Just curious, is it worth getting any of them for that price?

That is pretty exorbitant for a regalis. You could find one for about half that price around the boards. Can't speak to the hanumavilasumica as I don't see adults for sale often.

No, adult female regalis should be around $100 and hanumavilasumica are a glorified fasciata which run around the same price as regalis, not worth the difference in money... Here's the difference:

Majority of pet stores are going to be over priced for obvious reasons, I never buy from them, I can always find a better deal here even with shipping cost.

Not at all. I'd burn my money first before it giving it to them at those prices.

T. blondi and apophysis are redonkulously overpriced. I get that they're rare and sought after, but $250 for an unsexed 1" sling? Screw that. I'm waiting until they're as common as the stirmi.

You can find 6-7" confirmed female regalis just about anywhere on the internet for 60-120$ max

Interesting. Another thing I noticed and am not happy about is that they kept their C. lividum in a 1" substrate and its bone dry. Its a 5" female and they are selling it for about $120.
