I'm the opposite. If Hawkeye had the A base I would have ordered it. Or that flying cycle, whatever it was.

I like the tiny base. It will allow for more display options. Since her base required only 1/4th the polystone, she should have been quite a bit cheaper. Typically, when a statue is larger, Sideshow ups the price. Well, if they use less material on a statue, shouldn't the price go down?

Not especially, it would make sense but popularity and limited edition size probably dictates what the break even would come out to.

Vision has a small edition size and so does Scarlet Witch.

Joker is smaller and lighter than Storm however it still costs more

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

The price was set before the ES was established though... The ES is low only because a lot of people didn't order.

I think the small base was a design decision partially based on cost. The base is a recycled design and they got it smaller by using a pose that would work for it, saving money while charging more. $350 for SW, yet several other females that look better and use new bases cost $325. I liked SW enough to order, but she is comparatively over priced.

I'm also not getting Vision. His straight leg pose is boring and I don't know what he's doing. I never thought I'd pass on a Vision PF since I'm collecting all the major Avengers, but the only way I'd get this Vision is if I found it later for well below retail.

Vision's small ES is also because not that many people like it. Joker is small and light but it also has a lot more tailoring detail in his outfit and subtle details in the paint. Vision, SW and Storm have capes. Joker's in a full suit with cuff links, the trick flower, etc. more went into it.

Well said bro, you ate right! Sw is over priced a bit. Visions legs are too straight looks weird.

Exactly. Marvel/Disney must think she is worth more than the other female Marvel characters that have been released.
Marvel could have requested that $350 be the base price for these statues now.
