    Well that response doesn't look quite friendly, but maybe I just don't get it ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
    Guess you maybe just don't feel like chatting and that's fine. Let's just forget about it and wait for this nice figure to be released then.

    Not trying to offend you, but you are being fooled by their marketing strategy, which is what I am trying to explain.
    You keep thinking that there might be a gap between the "Standard" and the "DX". but in reality there is no such thing as "DX".
    The "DX" is the standard. It is the product that they initially had in mind to do from the start.
    What you are calling the "Standard" is just a substandard. A REAL "DX" would be something with an exclusive poster or acrylic stand/keychain. Something that bundles it to an "extra" that isn't part of the product itself. Calling this a "DX" is just comical. It is the equivalent, though not as ill-intentioned, as selling you a pair of shoes and calling them "DX", while the laceless or sole-less shoe is the "standard".
    Not as extreme as the shoe example, neither as evil, it is still nice that they are offering a cheaper alternative, since not everyone might be interested in the "extras".
    This is actually the same as if phone companies offered you cellphones that came without chargers / headphones. You might already have dozens of those, but new phones still come with it. You might think it is free, but trust me, they aren't losing a penny when they include those things in with the phones.
    So yeah, I hope you understand now that this "DX" is just the standard, and the "standard" is a substandard. The "DX" will cost exactly what the product was planned to cost. And there will be a cheaper alternative called "standard".
    What we should really be worried about, is that if they are offering a substandard edition, it is most likely, because they fear that some of the consumers may be pushed back by the standard cost, thus it would be easier to lure these people into buying a substandard edition by making them think that is the standard.
    It is also possible that they are offering a substandard edition, because as many other people suggested, the item is store exclusive, thus by calling it "DX" it makes it seem more reasonable to have it be store exclusive.
    Anyways, prepare your self for either a hard to order item, or an overly expensive item. But remember, you aren't buying a "DX", you are just paying a lot of money for the standard item.
    I have no idea, thus am ignorant, about their licensing and production costs, nor their fixed and variable costs. And I find it nice of them to providing a cheaper alternative if they consider their item to be expensive. At least it makes it available to those that otherwise would not buy it.
    What I don't like, is that they are labeling the standard as "DX", there is no direct harm to it, and the action by itself can be excused because they don't want to name the substandard as something bad, so they use "standard", therefore the real standard becomes the "DX".
    However, this practice is also a very common way of racking up prices which can be seen quite often with phones.
    They release a standard item and brand it as a "DX", while offering you a crappy edition for cheaper. Later on, when their sales indicate that a substantial amount of consumers are buying into their "DX", they will release a new item. Only this time, the new "DX"(standard) will be more expensive, and the crappy edition/"Standard" will be the same price as the "old DX".

    Since you are already used to purchasing said item at said price, they are making you feel comfortable with the price, it is the same price as last year after all. But you aren't realizing that this time you are being given less for the same price as before. Over time this creates a trend that makes us comfortable but it is a method to take advantage of consumers by making them pay more for less.
    Anyways, I am not saying that Flare nor Square Enix is doing this. I am simply raising awareness. So far they have done nothing more than provide a cheaper alternative to a product that will most likely either be store exclusive, or quite expensive.
    Just recall that the "DX" is the standard, there is nothing extra about it. And the "standard" is just a cheaper option to those that are not interested in the many other pieces that the product comes with, or can't afford it. View spoilerHide spoilerIn case that you are one of the people that can't afford it, don't feel bad about buying a substandard edition, it is a reality that life is hard and things are expensive, there are a thousand of cool things out there and we can't afford it all. I myself have some monstrous bills coming up nd have no way of affording everything that I would like to have. There is no shame in that.
    They most likely named them like that, because naming the cheaper alternative as substandard, would hurt their sales. And naming a standard as "DX" would probably boost their sales. Which is not inherently ill mannered, they are doing this for profit after all.
    Just realize things for what they are, so you don't get tricked by those with ill intentions.

    Adding this spoiler because not everyone is interested in what I have to say, so I don't want to take so much screen space View spoilerHide spoilerDonkeyBlonkey (8 months ago) #40625670View spoilerHide spoilerRight, I figured as much that it would provide more options for people who are wanting to save/aren't too crazy about the extra features.
    Not sure if that's somewhat directed at me. All in all to what I'm saying is, they should have never made a DX version and released it as it is. It just felt counterintuitive. That said, throwing in a few extra pieces/accessories couldn't really hurt the standard version. We don't know how big of a price gap the standard version vs the DX version will be, so I suppose that'll determine if having two versions made a real substantial difference in budget for collectors.

    Butcher (8 months ago) #40622239Probably the same price it was going to be from starters. . . . . . . .They most likely had the complete figure at a certain price, and decided to sell the same figure without the extras at a cheaper value.Right, I figured as much that it would provide more options for people who are wanting to save/aren't too crazy about the extra features.

    Butcher (8 months ago) #40622239I don't get why so many people simply assume that everyone is attempting to rip them off.Not sure if that's somewhat directed at me.

    DonkeyBlonkey (8 months ago) #40611331View spoilerHide spoilerSo from what I've seen in the pictures and read, basically.... get the DX version. (In all honesty, it should have just been the DX version as the standard release than making two variants) that said, I'm not sure
    how much more money they'll charge for this DX Version....

    Probably the same price it was going to be from starters. All they did was provide a cheaper alternative without the exchangeable parts. Which is quite nice because not every buyer might want the extra parts, or might not be able to afford the original price.

    Companies often attempt to separate their products in order to make them more affordable to people that might not be interested in everything that it comes with.

    Take cars for example, they come with a bunch of accessories at a price. But you can buy the same car without all those accessories for a lower price. Imagine if car manufacturers/dealers only sold cars that come with all the accessories... Most of us would be stuck with bicycles.

    I don't get why so many people simply assume that everyone is attempting to rip them off. It's not like they were going to charge a set price and decided to make a version with extras for a higher price. They had a product with a price, and decided to sell the same product without the extras at a cheaper value.
