Hi, I'm Niki! I've been collecting figures for about 4 years.

stuff I've watched/read

Also since I'm pretty young, I apologize for my occasional(?) immaturity (sweats)

bowe6 years ago#2986150Since they're made in China, the weakening Japanese Yen and strengthening Chinese Yuan would be my guess. Just looking at old charts, CNY:JPY was around 1:12 in 2012 and now it's about 1:19. So what cost 100 yuan--and therefore 1200 yen--to make back then would theoretically cost 1900 yen now. Then there's inflation, rising manufacturing cost (increasing wages, materials, more complicated sculpts which results in longer production time, etc), Japan's increased sales tax (which as international buyers, we don't have to pay but are charged anyway in some form or other), decreasing discounts offered by stores and other small things that add up. Not to mention they'd need to make a considerable profit, otherwise there's no point in rereleasing.
Erm, sorry, you may have found your answer by now but I thought I'd add my two cents. >_< I'm sorry for posting on your profile as well, but I didn't want to post on the figure's comment page since I remember there were a bunch that got deleted with the same line of discussion.

I did see a few things, but this clears it up some more! It doesn't bother me at all, I actually appreciate it! Thank you!! :D

nikiptc186 years ago#2980308Does anyone have any idea why this version is so much more expensive than the original? Like, I don't think a few changes would raise the price so much...
