Is anyone else scratching their head at the listed price for these figures? According to the Diamond comics news item these things have an estimated retail price of $8.99. My question is , "What the freak for?"
What is it about these figures that makes the price so high? Are they on special blister packaging that costs more? Do they come with some kind of special feature, like a CT chip? Is Hasbro just testing the waters to see how much they can get us to pay for figures? Or is this just an inaccuracy?
I already have a difficult time swallowing the $6+ price tag for the current crop of figures, let alone $10 for deluxe ones just because they come with an extra large accessory. I can't imagine why, if the price is really accurate, they would cost so much more unless Hasbro thinks that they'll be such a hot item that that's what collectors would pay.
