    Something people should keep in mind is that sometimes pricing things outside of what a lot of people are willing to pay is the entire point. If you can't handle the demand that exists, and you don't have the capacity to increase production, you increase the price to 'take the heat off'. This isn't exclusive to collector type stuff, it happens with any type of goods.

    Calling it now. $300 for the Lupus reissue. I hate that a price so steep is even in consideration but FT is just milking everything for what it's worth and then some.

    I wish the best for anyone who'd be going in but I honestly couldn't give a shit about Wierdwolf. The only Headmaster i'll be getting for my collection is Hardhead and Maketoys already has me covered.

    I think at this point ALL prev releases are fair game for reissue.

    Well, I can't even connect to the website for 15 mins and the moment I can, it is sold out. But really $450 is most likely a pass for me, not to mention I want the grey version.

    Do you really think it is the pandemic, rather than FT realized that their products sell well? Of course, everything has become more expensive after pandemic, but for a set to jump from $180 to $450, I guess demand play a more important role here.
