It's not necessarily that they think they're worth that, even though people prove they'll pay it, it's that they pay to receive them before anyone else and pass that cost onto the consumer if you want them early. Their sets tend to go down in price when they're released at retail and become more commonplace.
Oh, got it now I understand why the mark up. I thought it was something to that but wasn't sure.

Grabbed Pac today. He has a great arena fighter look to him. Plus the extra head can be used somewhere else.

On the plus side you can recreate the metal grating on top and concrete structure underneath with basic household items.

They’d have to make a new smiling face scan for it too.

Undecided on if I should grab the wave 1 variant of Kenny Omega or wait for wave 4 to hit retail. I generally don’t like screaming scans, but I do think the wave 4 head looks better. And I’d like him in a gear that he wore outside of AEW, like wave 1, but the silver does look cool...

I generally err on the side of the better headsculpt. Granted, you could get both and do a swap with the best scan and gear together.

having both i think the wave 4 head scultp looks much better and replaced series 1 with it right away in the display but having both you can swap parts pretty easily

Unless the wave 1B figures hit retail and the corrected skin tones blow me away in person, I plan on skipping them all. The head scan on the wave 4 Kenny is way better. If anything, I'll just get an extra wave 4 Kenny and swap the legs from my extra wave 1 Kenny that has a bad face print on to him.

This Sammy I received from RSC is an odd one. Tricep facing forward on the left, but I think the shoulders are different and possibly the biceps because the muscle definition appears different.

AEW Wave 6 is up for pre order on Ringside if anyone wants them. I pre ordered a set of 6. the entire Wave looks really good. i wish there were more first time characters in the Wave, but it's still a great looking wave and I'm happy to get Shida and Hager.

Shida looks great.

I am still so weirded out by the face sculpt they went with for the mainline Riho - its horrible. Meanwhile the variant is wonderful but most people will never own it.

I found Ortiz and Santana in Target today. They look pretty good. I pre-ordered Wave 6. I used the MD TOYS promo to get the 10% off but then the shipping ate that up, lol. What I see from the pics, the head sculpts look better in this wave and don't look over sized for the body either as some look to be in some of the other waves.
