Hmmm. That does seem rather out of whack with what the other MP Transformers go for. I mean, these are usually relatively affordable compared to the rest of the high-end collector-focused stuff in the Japanese Domestic market(I'm thinking Bandai's Soul of Chokogin, or most of Arcadia's output for comparison here). I'm inclined towards the view that this probably the case price rather than the retail pricing.
It is almost certainly is the case that the list price is for a case rather than an individual item but it says a lot for how TF prices have now risen to high luxury item price-points that I really wouldn't be surprised it was $250 for one figure.
The only way they will learn they reach the limit of how high they can jack up prices, is of we stop paying.
This was the problem with FP's price gouging. They kept raising prices, raising production numbers (which they told us at the start, low production numbers=high prices. Troopbuilder packs were cheap because higher production numbers. But as soon as they realized those were hot ticket items, they started gouging the shit out of those), and we kept shelling out.
The Transformers Masterpiece Series Launched " Bǎi " third bullet " Dragon CG " Magic " is a popular " Dragon " in the " bǎi which, with changes, is completely staggered with the latest interpretation and technology.
The Rapid Dragon mode is like a moving puppet, the joints can be moved, the neck joints can turn around, and the bodies that can change their eyes. All-body skin styling is carved and the image of the painting is restored to the image of the and printing. The Robot Model is more strapping than king kong, and this kind of physical disparity has also been restored.
Full body joints are capable of holding a saber-deformed saber and a dinosaur sword. Game is hidden by a revolving body. In the face of the face, the face of a roaring face and the smiling face can be replaced, and the eyes can also be issued with a red light. In addition, there is a 2-color display in the interior of the interior, with the result that the glowing effect can be carried out by red.
In addition, a key prop "Gold Dish" in the drama is also attached as an accessory. With large transformers also available, with an expanded new base of the "tf power base". whether it is a robot mode or a beast mode, it can be shown to enemy, explosive posture![/quote
I have to say, I think these Beast Wars characters lend themselves to masterpiece figures more than the original Transformers because they came from that bit later on in terms of design. These look like Masterpiece figures because they're spot on to the toon versions, whereas the hybrid 'is it an improved toy/is it supposed to look as plain as the cartoon' confusion with the G1 stuff means the style is all over the place. Put a load of G1 MPs together and they don't look like the same line - these really look good together.
I know thats cartoon accurate scale, but I'd probably have been more interested in a smaller Dinobot that was packed full of stuff to justify £180 rather than the cost largely being a result of it being big.
