Sorry to pick on you but but I frequently see this sentiment - why do foreign collectors always bring this up? If the American price goes up, so will the British... it's not like there's some sort of tax on the American version that only Americans have to pay. If we were paying $40 and the British were paying $80, and if then the American price went to $80 wouldn't the British price go to $160?$80 is standard price for a figure in the UK anyhow.
You mean I'm not the only one with a hastings?! WOOT!Hopefully the local Hastings (books/music/video) will get some of these in when they're released.That way I can wait until they sell them on clearance for half off or less cause there's no way I'm paying 80 bucks for one.
As the Euro and the British Pound are 2:1 against the dollar, this is not a fair comparison. $80US in Britain is half the hurt on the wallet as $80US in the US.$80 is standard price for a figure in the UK anyhow. Will wait to see what these are like, but think they'll be worth it
actually sideshow's first 1:6 figure the original frankenstein retailed at $20 at Toys R Us when it came out...It is a fact, Sideshow has been raising the price of their figures once they were $40 a piece, now they are around $80.
I'll be selective I promise :sleep
