Also for the Marvel Avengers game there was another poly, the quinjet, available in the UK from other outlets such as Smyths. I guess that may have diluted numbers as well.
would be nice if LEGO would scan market a little and in cases like this release a polybag with just the figure, or include it in another set. Sure it would cause LEGO to be less of an investment, but it would make LEGO much more open for play and collecting, and in my opinion that's what LEGO should be about.
What i mean to say it that the collecting part of some Lego items causes that the children will not have them to play with unless their parents where nice enough to buy the packages while in store or are willing to spend a lot of money on the original figures.
And i am not talking about putting out more of the huge sets like the UCS sets, those where in my opinion never ment to be a toy to play with.
Anyway it's just my opinion, i am not demanding.
As for "collecting," in pretty much every collector market, it becomes a market because there are "rare" items. Not impossible to get, but rarer than others. That is what fuels a market.
Should a kid spend $40 for Silver Centurion? Nope. Is their childhood ruined when there are so many other variations of Iron Man suits available? To me, I have a difficult time seeing how Silver Centurion indicates some bad direction for LEGO that they need to address.
This is just my opinion. I 100% respect yours, I do not mean to come off as arguing.
It's a shame, because I'd really like to have this figure but there's no way I would shell out so much money for a single minifigure.
Chance to win a Silver Centurion for just £1 for an excellent cause
At around $40-ish on Ebay, the Silver Centurion really isn't that much out of line with previous promo figs. I thought the Iron Patriot fig was going for that or more at it's peak.
My name is Yodalicious and I have an Iron Man problem.
I thought that's what the forum was.
It's just unfortunate that the addicts have taken over the help groups.
In that case, they want people to buy the video game. Some money there on the licensing fee for Lego, some money there on the royalty fee for Lego, and the guarantee that there will be future Lego Marvel Superhero games.
That's why the synergy of the Lego Movie, Lego Movie sets and ancillary Lego Movie merchandising for the movie is such a money-maker!
Lego may be leaving some money at the table by not producing everything themselves, but when it goes bad - like Galidor - it can be a triple loss if you don't license the manufacturing/production of the ancillary products.
