Didn't get a chance to finish my post because of an internet hiccup but pretty much this. But before it gets to that point, I can see Hasbro try something like grocery producers do. To try to keep prices the same on their popular products, they reduce the size of the product. If sales start to droop, Hasbro will do the same and start releasing even smaller less complex figures to try to keep the status quo. One can already see this over the years anyway just looking at the leader class figures from 10 years ago to now. But the last statement is correct though, prices will not come down from a manufacturer's standpoint.
