Uh huh. Diecast is "slag", just as toy-grade plastic is grocery bags. Both statements are equally false. Hey, if you can pay $300 for a figure and don't mind if it barely weighs anything in your hand, more power to you. But don't act like it's some con that only you are smart enough to see through. If diecast was just a gimmick for justifying an inflated price tag, it would be used in every toy. You wouldn't be able to escape it.
