This has always puzzled me. why anyone would pay out the nose for these high end non transforming statues of Transformers character. Do not get me wrong they look great and are articulated in many cases but the non transforming bit kills them for me as does the huge prices many of them command. The older statues did not and still do not seem to draw these kind of prices. Action masters showed a longtime ago the demand for non transforming transformers is very limited and i can't see it having grown in the years since. I can imagine the current ones might draw sales from those who like statues of popular characters in current or classic media. Even so i just do not see enough demand out there, but perhaps that could help explain the high prices as they need a great margin on costs to make up for lack of significant sales volume. They still make the things so i suppose some one is buying them.
