I really doubt it. They will sell, maybe slower but they will.peanut wrote:I almost kind of hope they see a big drop in sales so they realize we notice things like 33 percent price increases.
First you don't get here- "LEGO has finally claimed the spot for being the largest toy company in the world in terms of sales" by doing business as usual. Take some risks and see what is the reaction. (Simpsons)
The Simpsons Minifigures experiment worked and now they figure out if they sell at that price; why not the rest right? Why sell for less when you can make more.
Take advantage of the popularity of the Lego Movie and for sure the sequel.
The best we can do is get the ones we really like and hope for a clearance after Christmas.
Since the alternative is miss out completely and be happy, or pay after market values; which is what happened to me with the Lego Movie series. I paid more than $4 for the figures that I wanted.
Was it? I must have missed the statement from TLG confirming that. I think we all knew inside that the price wouldn't ever go back down (it was the perfect excuse to tack on a huge price increase which I agree is exactly what the biggest toy company in the world would do) but since Simpsons is a licensed theme I still foolishly had my fingers crossed it would go back to somewhere near the previous vanilla price point because then I would still collect them. It's not like I enjoy not collecting them now as some kind of statement, I just feel they are overpriced and not worth it anymore.timtosino wrote:It was confirmed when the Simpsons' minifigures came out with MSRP of $3.99 that this would be the new price for all CMFs.
