Temreian (7 days ago) #9291665I think you are mostly right about this, but oil is only one major component to PVC the other is chlorine. Now I don't know how much chlorine prices have changed, but if the price rose more than the price of oil fell then it still costs more to get PVC.

This is the basic PVC production chain. I think there is room in there for material prices to change independent of oil prices.
It's interesting that our figures are basically made from oil and salt.


The price of labor in China rising steadily an average of 12% per year and also the price of paint has gone up a lot in the last 3-5yrs 10-40% depending on tints and manufacturing process of each color.

silentwinter91 (7 days ago) #9279949Because the price listing would look bad next to each other, can you imagine 9k retail next to 15k retail for arguably almost the same scale/figure.
Arguably, alter has ramped up their quality control standards and this has translated to higher retail prices. The lower oil prices should have actually lowered material labour costs.

tonyz723 (8 days ago) #9239062So over the course of ~3 years, the price of this anime figure has increased 28%. I'm curious what makes it so much more expensive aside from inflation.Well everything has gone up. Material Costs, Labor, Shipping Costs for those materials, Everything adds up at the end.

On the other side of things, the average exchange rate back in 2013 was not good. 1 USD equaled 96-98 Yen.
