I think they're too expensive even at the price PlayStation Gear will be charging (£250).
Just because they've got a limited production, doesn't mean the price needs to be sky high.

NOT WORTH IT IMO

I mean £699 for a Alexios or Knox figurine -- Seriously?

I hope the Legend figure (if it ever gets released) is cheaper.

The maximum amount of money I can give to a figure is like 30Ä...

I'm so disappointed by Shadow I might change the Weta for this classic one.

Iím afraid that the Legend figure might be the same price or a bit more pricey due to more detail

Not worth it based on what?

If you mean not worth it to you, there's nothing wrong with that, not everyone likes the same things. But yes, the limited production does actually mean the costs per unit are higher. And while I'd never buy an AC statue because I'm just not a fan, that price is very much in line with how much pieces of this size cost. And it's not just because they can charge that much, but because the production costs are way higher than people think. The material is expensive, molds are expensive and have to be remade very frequently, there's a ton of work in cleanup of the casts, an keep in mind that every single piece is hand painted. Not to mention licensing and actual design work by the sculptors. Once you see a behind the scenes look at how these are produced, you're more likely to wonder how the prices aren't higher.
