Why are Hot Toys so expensive?

Recommended Posts

I've been asked this from a bunch of people who don't understand why I would drop hundreds of dollars on a "fancy action figure". My answer. They're awesome!

The real answer though is:

- They’re extremely high quality
- They’re highly sought after by collectors
- They’re handmade and hand painted
- They have limited production runs
- They take a significant amount of time to produce
- They’re based on highly popular IPs

I actually wrote about this on my blog recently in an article entitled "Why are Hot Toys so Expensive?". Would love to get the community's opinion on whether I missed anything (and whether they agree that Hot Toys are worth the hefty price tag).

Thanks!

I mean considering we pay above or around 100 for import figure from  shf and mafex which are just plain plastic and way smaller than Hot Toys, it doesn't seem expensive at all in comparison, only time I though Hot Toys were expensive was maybe in 2004-2007 when regular 6 inch Marvel figure were  around 10 dollars.
