    I think he is talking about the legends size figs. At $60, it is a horrible deal. I understand the hoops they have to go through to get them but, damn.

    I wouldn't pay more than the price of a normal legends figure for them.

    Makes bod's price of $100 for the set look a downright felony.

    What? Paying 10x more than retail for a legends figure, albeit an exclusive one... no wonder nobody's biting.

    With the pricetag on those things, it's hard to impress anyone. There are better things to preorder or track down on eBay for that price.

    Store incentive minifigures are a niche item, most foreign collectors can't be bothered or aren't interested in them.

    They're also nothing new, we've gotten spychangers, minicons, energon weapons, and Legends figures in the past. Some were very hard to get, some were easy to get. These are on the easy side. It's not the rarity in terms of production numbers, it's the rarity in terms of how hard the are to get that makes them so pricey. BBTSs price is high, but not quite outragous for someone who doesn't want to deal with any uncertainty and lacks better means.

    FYI, they're all various store exclusives, to different stores and require either a minimum or certain toy purchase (Such as Voyager Prime) to get, starting on a certain date for as long as supply lasts essentially.

    Since these are incentive figures the $60 is actually infinity-times retail.
