That is kind of strange. I would have thought with many more available the price on the authentic ones would have gone down somewhat. It would only make sense as there is no longer such a high demand. Not drastically of course, but I would expect to see some movement in price. Like H_D these are the only KO's in my collection. This is only justifiable to me because I am probably never going to be in a situation where I can buy originals in person and I would be too wary of buying them online anymore since the KO's do exist. Secondly, the price of these (about $8 apiece in the set) is just too good to pass up.
