This whole thing reminds me of how video games work. When they first hit selves they are really high price at about $60-$70 a pop. One reason they do that is to cover development & production cost, and there are many that have to have the game right now. If you wait 6 months or more you can have the game for $20-$30. Hasbro must be taking pointers, because there are mopping up on all that have to have a big army of these right now. Don't get me wrong about this as the vintage figures are really cool, but it is hard for me to swallow the $10 for them and some are even finding them for $12
, that is crazy. With all the hype for these and Hasbro is making a killing. Plus once the hype moves on, they offer them in the basic line and make a killing again. I wish they would offer this type of figures in the basic line from the start as I don't fell a figure we should have been getting all along for $7 is priced at $10-$12. I'm glad the clone trooper (AOTC & ROTS versions) didn't go this way, as they were offered at the basic price with the awsome articulation.
I only got 2 as I like to keep one on card, but I couldn't even think of getting the 20+ of these at the price they are. If they hit clearance I'll get a few more, but other than that I'll wait for the basic recard version.
Other thing is that I think the Snowtrooper look a bit bulky, maybe out of place a little too with the scale. Anyone else think that too?
