beatriceforlife (2 months ago) #37869481If you see a/the character(s) for a show priced very differently across two different manufacturers, then you have to generally conclude that the difference is due to sculpt or production costs, of which there isn't anything to do but evaluate qualitatively.Indeed, but let's be realistic here. If one looks at the product in front of them and wonder why it's priced a certain way, why is it that one always gravitates towards the complexity of it's design and then the size? I mean it's obvious the selling point of figures is the love for the character/franchise, but most of all, how nice the figure looks.

Let's digress a little bit. Figures, plushies, phone cases, even those Overwatch themed Keyboards, etc, are all things people like cause it's from their favorite franchise or has their favorite character. But there's always an important process than just the base product and like I've said before in my previous post, is always the license contracting.

Without the license, you can't even make such product and the license holder knows that; they also want to know what products you're going to be producing and how much you're willing to pay for the IP (Not cheap)

My point is, when people aren't happy with the price, they need to think outside of the box for once. Than compare the quality of sculpt and size from two figures with two different price points. It is a valid point to rely on; however, there are many avenues to what leads to the "absurd" pricing on certain figures that "subjectively" feel lackluster. At the end of the day, the price isn't going to change unless one waits till the aftermarket hoping for a bargain bin.


beatriceforlife (2 months ago) #37869481So if the manufacturer isn't transparent about a figure's costs, what else can you really say?Any manufacturer will hardly be transparent about the exact costs for their products. Whether it's Samsung, Apple, LG, etc. No one will know. That said phone companies are different from figure companies as one produces their own line of products while the other needs to obtain licensing and then produce their line of products for that specific license.

beatriceforlife (2 months ago) #37869481You can't simply say they're talking out of their asses because you just have anecdotal accounts from people in the industry and don't exactly know yourself the degree or extent to which it "screws things over".To keep it real, people are. When they go towards comparing two different figures on details of the sculpt, they're only looking at one direction. It goes to show people are biased only towards the product at hand which makes sense because they are the consumer and this is what they throw their money at. All I'm saying is if people are heavily interested in knowing what dictates the pricing of these types of merchandise, they should try to go to conventions where these companies regularly show up or even watch the interviews toy channels put up on YouTube. Research it more, rather than trying to partially deny that licensing and logistics bare no heavy impact on the figure's cost.

But from the multiple interviews/interactions I've had with Mamitan (Former GSC), Cyrol with Tsume, Adam Newman with Bandai Tamashii Nations, or even Udon Comics/Collectibles Erik Ko, they all said the same thing involving licensing that screws a lot of things over. Of course they never specify the costs as that is a private matter one doesn't discuss about. So yes, we can assume that it costs a lot but one thing is for sure, even when they pay for the license, what really determines the cost is the merchandise making company, going back to the license holder asking them how much they want to price X merchandise. Factoring in complexity of sculpt, material costs, then how much the license holder feels their product's costs should lean towards.
I don't mean to come off pretentious from this, but I go to these large conventions and talk to these companies to get a better idea. So when people talk/complain about figure prices by going into the detail of the sculpt/paintjob and size of the figure, it definitely shows they've never really spoken to actual company officials on the pricing, and sort of shows that they're talking out of their asses.


This is kind of late, but I don't see how they're decisively talking out of their asses, really. It's a relatively logical conclusion. If you see a/the character(s) for a show priced very differently across two different manufacturers, then you have to generally conclude that the difference is due to sculpt or production costs, of which there isn't anything to do but evaluate qualitatively.

So if the manufacturer isn't transparent about a figure's costs, what else can you really say? You can't simply say they're talking out of their asses because you just have anecdotal accounts from people in the industry and don't exactly know yourself the degree or extent to which it "screws things over".

Well looks like they aren't winning any awards in the overseas customer service department, either way:

AmiAmi being douchy is nothing new, but it's alarming that they don't support overseas customers at all. GSC manages to consistently churn out much less expensive figures while offering great overseas support, yet these dudes charge a premium and offer none.

Licensing might be a good point (one of the few valid ones in the post), but without knowing how much they paid for the licensing (and honestly we never will), I am a tad dubious about calling it out like a factual, confirmed reason for these prices. Licensing fees must have inflated an absolute crapton for us to be seeing some of these prices for rather small scale figures...
