DC properties wouldn't be cheaper, the only time you see a downscale in price for DC items is when DC themselves are actually selling the items. That's why DC Collectibles 1/6th scales are about $100 cheaper than the ones from Tweeterhead.

As for Court of the Dead it makes little sense to price them lower. They do indeed cost Sideshow less, but they price them the same as all the other collectibles because it makes sense from a sales point of view. It allows them to place the profit earned into other areas or make up for poor sales on items that are more of a gamble.

Can someone decipher what this guy is going on about?

First it was recasts are cheap hence production costs have not gone up.

They certainly shouldn’t be listening to “Mr. counterfeits are cheap hence we are being overcharged” over here
