    Simple. Toys R Ushas exclusive distribution rights for Masterpiece figures at US retail. Without anyone competing they can price them however the please to squeeze every last penny out o the limited US collector's market.

    Can't totally blame them, the market for MP figures is much smaller here than in Japan.

    TRU is trying to go for the gusto now.

    We'll see how that works.
