That means you're in the group of consumers the producers no longer care about: people who aren't going to buy from them anyway, no matter how it's packaged.
If someone wants ten orcs and I sell them a pack of ten orcs, I'm done getting their money. If they want ten orcs and have to try for 'em, I can get them to get more minis, which will actually guide them to wanting more minis anyway as well as moving minis I might not have otherwise sold them. Even if they go get their ten orcs in the singles aftermarket, that means there are people buying loads of the minis to turn into aftermarket singles, which in turn increases the desire to hunt for the now-expensive rares!
There's virtually nothing about the way random-pack minis and cards work that doesn't mean more money in the manufacturers' pockets.
That's the reality of that segment of the industry, and I wouldn't expect to see any change any time soon.

Dig around till I find something that could work for what I want. Remember, they're easy to modify and repaint.

Certainly if I have the unpainted minis, I'm more likely to give them a base coat and just throw them down on the table, especially for things like hordes of goblins, zombies, beastmen, whatever, where the invidual figures/details don't really matter so much since they all have the same stats and are just Extras anyways.
