Even if it wasn't profitable cancelling it could have cost a ton more money. Even if you only break even or actually lose a little bit of money on each piece at the point it's at now cancelling it would mean throwing away a ton of money already spent.

Yeah profitable in the usual sense wasn't the right word.
Not considering the proto if putting Goro into production was going to cost more than bring in i.e. they wouldn't be spending $1,700 a Goro and only getting $1,400, they'd be worse off than they started and would have cancelled it.

I doubt anyone would do that bad. Not-profitable most likely at it's worst I think would be a little under. $300 is wayyy to excessive. Remember breaking even is still not-profitable as well :P

I think there's a desperation for any kind of cash flow whatsoever.

Yeah I'm starting to believe the theory that the best selling pieces were pushed onto the production fast lane to secure the cash and close those sales. Juri, She-Ra, the Howling wolf, who else is as old as Mileena/Goro but way behind in production?

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.

This was one of the better ES calls in PCS history. No exclusive variants or anything, just 150.
Thanks for the response and I agree. I just feel that the Ninjas didnít live up to the hype and I donít see them really every being with more then $200 more then the retail piece, who knows.

I am holding on to my Kintaro 1/4 Bloody EX, I know this a keeper. Itís beautiful.
