    I had to wait a little bit to make sure the hype wasn't getting to me.
    So after some careful thought and consideration...

    35-40 USD is your average price for one Deluxe in Russia.

    And let’s not forget that a marvel legends, or Star Wars black series of similar size, with a fraction of the paint and parts count is also $20.

    I think his argument still holds though. I don't see Crowbar doing so well when Berserker completely failed. You may see it as being a unique figure as fan but I doubt the kids or parents will notice.

    Eh, I wouldn’t even say berserker failed. In fact, all of the new molds from TLK sold extremely well in my area. Berserker was actually hard to find for a couple weeks...then Walmart ordered waaaaay too many of them.

    Also, this line isn’t really aimed at kids, it’s meant to fill in the gaps for the older collectors and make new figures for characters that need it.

    Breserker did ok with sales and then yeah kind of lingered for a week or 2 but then became scarse again. The one who is definitely still on the shelf around me is slash think I counted 15 a local walmart on a top shelf.

    As for crowbar I do think its enough of a difference in robot mode to say its not going to shelf warm it is after all the first run of a character never made before remold or not.

    Price value is irrelevant for those. One may value a specific figure/character no matter the cost. (Be it 20 or 30) Besides, you get a BAF piece too.

    Aaaand? The same can be said for a TF figure. And again, BAF or not, TFs have FAR higher parts counts.
