Oh yes! I would with out batting an eye, especially if it’s an accurately and nicely sculpted piece of workneca asked this on twiiter..
Neca Is Trying to cost out an 18"-19" Classic Predator for 2011. Its $$$ would you guys be willing to pay $70-$80 for such a figure? Thoughts?
I say HELL YEAH
I agree here, but all the extra stuff wil cost you more especially the bigger the figure and detail it is the more it would cost $70-$80 sounds reasonable I mean I bought the 10th or 20th Anniversary AVP figures and @ the time 10" Alien and Predator for I believe $90 @ Toys "R" Us. If could be made to be cheaper and still have all the intricate details and the paint is excellent then I would consider it.If you want to spout being all about value, pack the extra stuff in one big box and sell it for 20+ dollars so no one has to go out and buy 3 different versions or more, just to get accessories that should have come with the figure in the first place, mask/unmasked heads and extra hands included.
...and that leads me into affordability, it's cheaper to do it that way than it is for collectors to go out and buy three or more 15+ dollar items.
have to agree with you sabres on this... we need to help company like neca to produce us such great figs...They're going to LOSE customers charging $30 for a 7" action figure, regardless of what they include.
And, NECA is the business of making money.
That's really all there is to it, it's the bottom line.
So, variants help to reduce costs for them and they make a profit.
If they make a profit...we get more figs.
No point in complaining about it.
