The higher price is something I’ve noticed since 2017 forward, not sure if it has to do with merging with Tomy and brand unification with Hasbro. However I think economies of scale plays a part moreso than before. Prior to 2018 you could count on Takara to rerelease an MP eventually, from months to a year after the initial release. We haven’t seen that happen in a while. For example, it was largely thought MP-44 and MP-47 would be rereleased. They haven’t been yet and it’s already been a few years. So I’m beginning to think the higher MSRP is due to lower production runs and a halt to rereleases/subsequent production runs in the near future. Maybe merging with Tomy got Takara in the “one(release/production run) and done mentality”. Lower production =higher production cost for Takara = higher end cost to us. So if MP Cliffjumper has a higher MSRP, I don’t think Takara plans to rerelease it anytime soon after it’s initial release, at least for a few years.
