What else can they do?
Just to be clear, I have no problem with the Bantha, I think it's a great toy/sculpt. My problem lies solely with the $45 price tag.
The Bantha w/Tusken was $30 ten years ago and I'm not seeing why it should be 50% more expensive now... sure there is a bit of inflation, but nothing else has ever been re-released exactly the same with a 50% price jump, has it?
- They dragged the AT-AT back at pretty much the same price-point.
- They dragged the Shuttle Back at pretty much the same price point (compared to KB, not FAO),
- They keep dragging the Falcon back at pretty much the same price-point.
- They keep dragging the Republic Gunship back at pretty much the same price-point.
Other stuff that was brought back with a substantial $10-$15 price increase (like AT-ST and the X-Wing) were all spiffied up with new pack-ins (Paploo/Speederbike and Retooled Luke/Dragonsnake/Swampgrass respectively).
What else can they do? Give me some extra little pack-ins to make it worth $45, that's what I'm saying. Tusken Tent, Moisture Vaporator, something.
If it turns out to be $45 for just a Bantha repaint with a Tusken Raider repack, I'm not interested. If it turns out to be $45 for a Bantha repaint with a Tusken Raider repack with some new pack-in things added
, then maybe I'll be interested...
