Super7 x G.I. Joe. July 15, 2021 REACTION or ULTIMATES?
I'm pretty sure this is REACTION figures, but wouldn't it be nice if Super7 actually finished some of their Ultimates before taking preorders on more.
reaction Joes would be interesting, love to see them make some o-ring Joes something like what they've done with their vintage MOTU line.
They charge like 17 bucks for these 5 poa figures and then hasbro charges 12 for the other ones. I know your paying for the art maybe and the nostalgia but jeez.
If they release ReAction JOEs, it is an easy pass for me. I hope they don't do anything interesting otherwise I will run out of money. I am already intrigued by whatever they have coming for SilverHawks.
People keep saying the price is due to art. But how much does the art honestly cost? Their other reaction art doesn't look that great. How is the 17$ price tag justified?
Steevy Maximus says
Go out and find some of them. Its the only thing that can be justified for it. Some of them I would. The MOTU ones had awesome art. I wont for the joes though. It seems funny to complain about the POA on the normal joes that are 12 and then pay more for these that have less than 5.
Part of it is that they don't own any of the IP they make figures of and have to pay licencing fees, so that adds a premium.
Another part is that they aren't targeting the toy collector crowd. They're targeting the Hot Topic / Funko Pop / capital F "Fandom" crowd and so the price expectation is a little different. These aren't meant to ever come off the card.
