Dubious DC Pricing

Posted by: Casimir at 4:56 am on Sunday, July 8, 2012

I suppose it’s safe to say I had a full-on rant prepared for this blog, but I felt a picture might serve my purposes better:

I’m okay with Croc being $50. He’s easily got enough plastic in him to make two normal figures. But Freeze? Really?

Don’t even get me started on “Titan Joker” being $75.

    My LCS charged $37.99, and he was worth every penny. Freeze, not so much.
    I was chatting with Mr. Marx the other day about this exact topic, and he reported that DCD says that there are more, complex paint apps on Freeze. I’m not buying it, but that’s the company line being towed.

    • Casimir Casimir says:

      I don’t buy that line about paint apps, either. That’s the answer to the question “Gee, what kind of excuse can we tell people when they ask about this insane price discrepancy?” Especially when compared to Bane.

  • Zach says:

    yeah, I wanted that Freeze until I saw the steep price tag at C2E2…still might get Croc, though, now that I’ve been ‘unsubscribed’ from Mattel’s Sub.

  • Did I just read thhis solicitation correctly???

    • Casimir Casimir says:

      I saw that, too. Shocking is the word. It’s almost as if DC doesn’t even want customers anymore. “Hey team, what can we do to make sure sales tank and we all lose our jobs?”
