I've always wanted to pose this question for quite awhile but it just slipped my mind so many times. but it has always bugged me. Is there any particular reason why they charged their items more pricey than others? (i.e Bandai, Takaratomy etc) is it b'coz they're a smaller outfit that they have much higher overheads & have to recoup back some of it? but the way i see it in terms of quality control & high standard, they are not much different from any other japanese toy company. in fact i think some of the stuffs made by either Bandai or Takaratomy is more better than CMS. One recent example of the expensiveness of their products is the Dancougar Nova. man, that thing will burn a hole in yr pocket. so any definite reason why their stuffs is expensive?
