GAH!? My favorite company

GAH!?

My favorite company making the best sculpt of one of my favorite characters at 12"!? IT COSTS $180!?!?

Brutal - unapologetically brutal. What a cruel world we live in.

If only there was something slightly more redeeming...articulation...greater size...any kind of feature...

*sigh*

Actually.....20cm is

Actually.....20cm is just less than 8" tall.... Again, another total ripoff.

UPDATE: Ok, according to this site it is indeed 30cm tall (12") instead of 20cm. Still, absolutely ridiculous price. As I said yesterday, I'm so glad I don't care anymore.

Wait--I'm not a big fan of

Wait--I'm not a big fan of "realistic" kaiju sculpts, so while I don't follow X-Plus' releases closely, I do respect them for making gorgeous toys. Anyway, is this size/pricepoint not representative of what they normally put out? 12" at $200? Is that way off for them? If so, bummer to Jetjagaa and X-Plus fans everywhere. My condolences.

This price is way off for

This price is way off for them. They do have figures in smaller runs under their "garage toy" line that are more expensive, but the most expensive I've seen previously of their larger scale soft vinyls was an Ultra kaiju that was 14" tall and was slightly over $100.

One of the main qualities about x-plus that I've loved is that they, arguably, have the best realistic style sculpts and are always very affordable.

Anyhow, thanks for the condolences.
