Honestly, the fact that people are totally willing to pay the $80 when the announced price was $60 and Hasbro jacked up the price before it was even made available is exactly why they continue to do stuff like this.

I was honestly surprised Hasbro was initially going to offer this service for $60. That seemed very inexpensive to me, however coming back shortly after and increasing the price another 33% just reeks of greed.

$60 was already a high luxury price point for a one-off, unique and quite cool present. $80 is greed.

My Mom offered to get one of these for me for Christmas, but I would feel like an ass asking for it at this price.

Also, Hasbro has really created problems for themselves by waiting this long to finally launch the program - people are going to ask for this as a Christmas gift and with a turnaround time of 45-60 days if they hit any hiccup, or have a crazy amount of takers, they're going to miss the holiday delivery.

It is a bit suspicious, considering they have been probing the market on this for months with a “sign up to stay in the know campaign.”

I wonder how much of a cut certain properties want. Disney, Sony, Saban, etc. Hope my bump as a Ghostbusters fan wasn’t just to satisfy the House of Mouse. (I know…wheres my “jump to conclusions” mat?)

At $60 I was in it for the novelty.

At $80…?

Yeah, not sure now.

"Hi everyone, we just wanted to announce our brand new action figure line where we'll print YOUR head on an already existing Hasbro molded body from any of a number of your favorite product lines. How much would you pay for this?!?!

"Uh...well...ya know my finances aren't so great right now...so probabl..."

"$60 dollars!"

"For my own head?"

"YES! And a figure body you can put it on!"

"But I already have multiple bodies I can put it..."

"$80!"

"But you just said...I didn't even decide yet if I want..."

"And it comes with a figure body from your favorite properties!"

"So you expect me to pay for a body I may already have, and then pay for a whole 'nother figure if I want to be on a different property's bodies?"

"Yes! All this for only $80"

"So couldn't I just put my own sculpted head on any other bodies?"

"You'll never know until you buy one!"

"You want me to pay $80 for my own head...and..."

"YES! But you don't HAVE to buy it, this is only for TRUE fans!"

"But like I said...my finances aren't..."

"Hurry before we have to raise the price another $20!"

Next we'll see Hasbro raise the price on figures we already own and send us IOUs.

I laughed, but I realized that it was that nervous, following along with others, kind of laugh as I quietly died on the inside.

STOP GIVING THEM IDEAS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :lol:

I mean they did dip their toes into the NFT market so don't put it past them to try anything and everything. Hell one day I could see them pulling a "Minority Report" type of situation where they will charge us for possible future purchases based on some AI algorithm.

What? We all know psychics are completely BS, but predictive AI?? That's the future right there. :D

If I can make whoever I want at $80 I'm in.

If it's restricted to just me then I'm out.

You can make anyone who can be convinced to stand in front of your phone for several minutes to render the head from several angles.

I don't like the price hike but, $80 for a custom 3D head print And a good custom paint job fitted to a action figure seems reasonable to me.

This wouldn't be so much more outlandish than where much retail already is. Many things we used to buy and then own (music, movies, software, even cars) are going to a subscription model whereby the company can bump the price or revoke your access whenever they want. Maybe soon we'll rent our figures from the owner class.
