    The price for this is nothing short of just plain ridiculous, 11,800 yen for a 1/8 figurine with a slightly fancy stand.

    Why are you even looking at their price?! Amiami has it for 9060 right now.

    The stand is really cool, also the detail of the figure is awesome, but I guess it really depends on what it's worth to you. To me, it's worth it. I love Karen. ^.^

    You do realize most of that 11,800yen isn't going to the development and production costs of this figurine, but to their fancy new office at the Sky Tree?

    Wow, now I see why they have gotten so bold as to continue rising their prices...

    I do realize this is all pointless talk, as a foreign consumer, nothing we say will affect their decisions.

    However, it is one thing to see the value in a figurine, and yet another to blindly accept whatever they decide to charge you for it, especially with this sort of pricing with an unexplained premium.

    I will gladly accept masterpiece figurines, such as the recent Ultimate Madoka and the older Black Rock Shooters, being charged at a premium if it is justified, such as due to the size, or having many detailed and delicate parts which requires more factory lines. This doesn't. Just look at the back of her hair!

    At this rate, they are going to just jam a few red plastic sticks together, paste a few masks on it, and charge you 15,800 for the Tsukihi figurine.

    It doesn't matter. Cost and value are two different things.

    You do realize that this is kind of big right. This model is almost half the length of Danny's laptop.

    Then people won't but it. If people still want to buy it at this price then that's what it's value is. Companies only set the price, consumers determine the value.

    It's only 9,000 yen, which is priced just right for such high quality...

    Get a part-time job, kid.

    Please don't 'kid' me. I am most likely older than you and making more than you or your parents ever did or will.

    But that is not the point. Even if I have a billion dollars to spare, I am still not going to spend a 100k on a can of spam, even if they gold plate and decorate the can with a few jewels.

    I will agree that she is quite well sculpted, but I will place her at around 7,000~8000 yen or so. That is what other companies have charged for figurines of this quality, and so was the case for GSC previously. That puts the stand at around 3,800 to 4,800 yen. For this price, you can basically get an entire road-roller model, and not some half sawed off hollow stand.

    A person who is prudent with his money? I thought those do not exist in Sankaku.

    If that comment looks incoherent to you, man you need to go back to grade school. Anyway, saying "don't think you're some kind of big shot on the internet" then commanding that others should not be allowed to express their opinions? Good job big shot ;)

    The moment I saw the headline, my first thought was: "Yes! Pre-haircut Karen!" My second thought was: "But can you brush her teeth?"

    TOKI "YO" TOMARE, get it right, years of bad flash animations and memetic ignorance have changed the meaning, get it right.
