  1. Why is this a $300 figure? Yeah, he's big but he's 6POA. Toys like this used to be $30. If vinyls the reason for the price, then couldn't they have used another material, or hollowed it out? Something? Just ridiculous.
  2. I could be wrong, but were Tokka and Rahzar ever even available in the US during Haulathon? Despite being the primary tool for marketing Haulathon, it never popped up on the Target site and never seemed to get a wide release in stores. It seemed like the only way to get it in the US was to use the costumes site intended for international folks only, but those of us who played by the rules are the chumps that missed out.
  3. I'm not a marketer or an economist, but just using common sense, I anticipate that sales will trend downward until wages can begin to match the rising costs of luxury goods. Considering that something like Marvel Legends has increased the price by 20% in the last 14 months, people will not continue to purchase them at the same rate until their wages have also gone up 20% since 14 months ago. Because if they do, they will have less (relative) money in their pocket. Unless the buyer makes a wage that the increased price doesn't impact their ability to afford their other expenses, then they're fine. But that's not most buyers, parents, or collectors. So I'm a bit frustrated that Hasbro has done so, so preemptively. Yes, they are a business that is out to make money, yada yada, but they raised their prices at a higher rate than inflation. Which means, they raised the price of their toys so that not only are their profit margins untouched, but their profit margin is actually greatened than if they matched inflation 1:1; all at our expense. Anticipating that their sales will decline, they decided to charge us even more than necessary so that their profits remain the same. They passed down all of the increased shipping and production costs onto us buyers, so that they can fill their pockets even more than they previously have. So yeah Hasbro, I noticed. It's really sleazy, even for a large corporation, and it unsettles me. So I'll be one of those people that are pulling back and reducing your sales over the upcoming years. More and more customers will continue to realize that you have no qualms with screwing us over so that your shareholders are satisfied, and it may come back to haunt you
