I never imagined I’d live in a world where six inch action figures retail for around a hundred bucks.
S.H.MonsterArts is a releasing a Mechagodzilla action figure, the foe from the 1974 movie Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla. The figure is ultra articulated, stands a little over six inches in height, and comes with a suggested retail price of $94.99. That’s a lot of money for an action figure. I get the part about it being highly articulated, but that is still a lot of money for something that will end up sitting on a shelf collecting dust. Then again, a quick search of eBay shows they tend to retain their retail cost on the secondary market. Some do much better. Still, I never imagined I’d live in a world where six inch action figures retail for around a hundred bucks. And to think I thought $44.95 was too much for a nine-inch Thrasher Suit Batman action figure. Compared to the Mechagodzilla action figure, that now seems like pocket change.
