The fact that it is a fully tooled figure with parts that can't be amortized down the line, like Har Jar Binks was. This isn't Yavin Luke with a Walrus Man head, so you gotta pay for the tooling.

Hasbro is going to say it's because it's "too big for the basic line" like Wrecker or Grievous.  (But we all know it's because they know you'll pay it and you'll still army build him.  >:D)

I just love how they included the rocket exhaust feature and showed a promo photo of the figure flying....

....but don't include any kind of a stand in order to pull off that pose.

And I'm curious.  If you buy the Deluxe Dark Trooper at Hasbro Pulse, will you somehow wind up being steered to this page in order to augment your purchase?

Pardon me, but my cynicism has been welling up a bit lately.
