When did this happen...

I was out shopping last weekend when I came across War Machine from the Iron Man The Armored Avenger Legends series. This series of 6" figures features a mix of Iron Man 2 movie designs with comic-based designs.
I was excited as I had earlier missed out on the 6" War Machine from the Iron Man 2 series.
However...when I looked at the price tag, I got the shock of my life.

When did this happen?!?!
When did a 6" mass market toy become so expensive.
$49.90 Sing Dollar...OMG...Faint

Will you buy it?

I was as shock as you bro when I saw it last sunday at ToyRus. No wonder it is on the shelves and no it is out of my budgets. I will blog about this too. Can I use your picture?

Sure bro

That's like a collector's market price. Are you sure it wasn't a misprint or something?

Bro, it's the same here in KL. Though we only now have to pay approx USD24 for one of these IM figs....last time it only costs us around USD20....while u now have to pay close to USD40ea! That's just nuts IMHO!

Movie can really make people go crazy for its toys and those with high price are no longer suitable for kids but collectors. It's collector's price. My opinion is that I won't almost 50 bucks on a 6" unless it's damn rare.

Adrian, I also won't buy that a 6 inch figure at S$50. Very expensive!! I guess Hasbro wanted the price to be on par with Revoltech figures :)

Hi Stephen - Unlikely...even Leon saw that kind of pricing else where.
Marcus - LOL...
Rebel, Dennis & Desmond - Crazy...that's all I have to say!

in my experience, the Marvel toys of Hasbro (not to mention those still available of Toy Biz) r becoming more & more expensive, specially some characters like Captain America, Thor, Spider-man & OFC Iron Man... i hav to say that in many cases the high price is justified by the quality of the figure &/or its low availability... ohhh i almost forget to mention, some Marvel Legends figures hav more points of articulation & detail than their Revoltech counterparts, they r classic figures & becoming harder to find, so again, the higher price is justified... =)
