Hot Toys Prices Are Officially Out of Control
A couple of days ago I shed some light onto the rise of Hot Toys prices. I don’t know how many of you were able to check it out, but if you collect Hot Toys this should be something that you are keeping an eye on.
Luv left a comment on that article and said that as long as people are continuing to buy the figures, the price will just continue to rise. This is probably true, but the figures are already 2-3 times what a standard sixth scale figure would cost.
Sure, their figures are what many consider to be the highest quality action figure money can buy, but I predict a lot more 12-inch action figure collectors are going to be getting out of the hobby as the prices continue to rise.
As much as I would hate to see that happen, it seems that it might be the only way prices are going to drop anytime soon. Until then I am going to be much more selective what figures I buy and you should be too. If enough people do this then maybe the prices will drop in the near future.
