They are 1/6th Legs. (1/3rd legs would push it closer to $300)

You've got new sculpts on the gun, new tooling for the body attachment, tooling, packaging, shipping, and raised taxes in HK, edition size, etc all to factor in

Thanks for clarifying Gregory! Must just be the perspective in the photo, hard to tell when the backdrop is entirely white.

And this is the moment I notice I actually like all 3...
Even the Lollistick starts to grow on me.

I really wanted to get this but price is still an issue. In my case, getting money in my paypal account costs me money too. I will have to enjoy from afar.

The price for HALF a figure, with a new gun slapped on top, is ridiculous. Hello 3a part of the charm is the reuse parts. And I get that you had to build guns. , but you also cut off half the figure, dress, weapon ...so how is this 160. I think everybody here will forgive you for the typo....and buy doubles at 100-120 without discount. If this isn't't a price typo, well I think you are insulting your fan base onthisfigure.if you sold a 2 pack at 220 I bet you will sell 3 times the figure and shipping cost would be down.

Is there a new hire in the accounting department. Is this a glimpse of things to come

gregory - I'm not buying it (literally).  You're making it sound like none of those things you mention have ever come up until now.  I get that it's part of your role to defend 3A, but every new design since 3A began has had to factor in everything you just said - with the possible exception of the HK taxes.  

The problem is that 3A has been around long enough and has a history one can look back on where the price was almost always appropriate for what you were getting.  Price was rarely an issue because the customer could see with their own eyes why a figure cost what it did and gladly bought because they felt they were getting fair value for their money.  It's 3A's own established history that is causing people to question the price on these figures.

I'm sorry you feel that way Hogarth, but the price is still very much reflective of what you are getting.  I understand that, at face value, some might see just a gun on half a body, but the new gun and engineering to fit it on the legs takes new sculpts, new molds, and new tooling, and these are some of the most expensive aspects of toy design.  We aren't defending it because it's our job, it is not our job to defend anything; whether you buy it or not is totally your call, and that's cool, we are simply clearing up the facts because some of you guys seemed interested.

I think it's definitely the perspective in the photo.  If you've seen a 24" figure in person, you realise 1/3 scale legs would still look much larger next to a 12" figure.

On a positive note. These are pretty great looking figures. The more I look, the more I like.

Are we getting a version 2? I'm liking Woodlands, but not enough for the price. Got save up for other figures on the horizon. If these were clean without the weathering, I'd probably get Lollistick. These are probably going to be one of those figures that are better once in hand. I can see another figure holding the trigger handles (or whatever you call those) manning the gun.

If two legs and a gun have to be priced at $160 for this to be worthwhile manufacturing I'm dreading the pricetag on the next real figure that has new parts.

Me to. I am worried about all new releases. Spiderman. Mortis Sweeper. TK hunter and pretty much anything that isn't using old parts.

Wasn't Ultron an entirely new sculpt, plus a light up feature and licensing fees, coming in at $220 or so? Although he was sold close to a year ago.

Around the same price as any 'real' figure would be, just like this one. I'm sorry you don't consider Dresden Frau a 'real' figure.

that reuse parts, even if it's 0.2cm bigger or smaller, or you need to add small button, or you need to add something, it's mean you need to make a new mold, completely new mold, and it's need R&D again, and it's not cheap of course, and it's called new parts too because it's need new mold.

and just because parts look like same, doesn't mean it's reuse parts that use the same molding.

Luckily I didn't wait and bought one last night before they were taken down. You would think they would have been up longer if money went into retooling. Got the black one, wanted the red one but I was afraid that it would have been more pinkish red in-hand (that's what she said, har, har, har).
Still think the price was a bit much even with the 3AA discount. She should come with a stand and few extra bullet belts (whatever they're called).
