Thanks once again to Steve Vinandy we have some in-hand images for the new G.I. Joe Classified Tomax and Xamot figures which have already started showing up in Europe. While neither figure has yet to see release here in the US, you can still pre-order them at places like our sponsor Entertainment Earth. If you use the code SUNFREE22 when you spend more than $39 there you will get FREE SHIPPING on your order.

Even with extra accessories it was a bad move to charge more for a  3-pack than 3 individual figures, that just flies in the face of everything the general consumer market has become accustomed to. I can ALMOST understand not giving a good discount but charging more was and is terrible. I've been working in business relating to consumer sales at a level where I can set prices for years and I would never sell a 3-pack of something for the same price or more than a single, even if it came with extras - the whole point is to get the consumer excited so they buy MORE at once which is better in every way it makes more money up front and saves you on shipping costs too which is huge in a market where many orders are just 1 item at a time (I sell thousands of items every month and you may or may not be shocked to know that 90% of them are 1 single item and sometimes they even choose to pay $9 priority shipping for a $5 item).

Also the paint jobs on the 3-pack Vipers is more muted than the 1-pack release, the red doesn't pop as much.

Once upon a time, 2-packs were cheaper than buying single figs. Now they're almost $10-$20 MORE, espcially Hasbro. It makes no sense at all, hence why they drop in price quick. 

 

Regarding this 3-pack, there has been a lot of QC issues with (mismatching skin tones) and so here in the UK one online retailer, knocked the price down to $28.

Even the $52 is more than I'm willing to pay for these, even though I think I paid nearly that for just one of the Cobra Island Viper on the secondary market. If they weren't in that horrible windowless packaging then I might reconsider. I prefer to display in packaging, rather than open. These would probably have to get down to around $35 before I'd bite.
