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.

That's what you get for being greedy, Instead of charging a 1000 $ why couldn't they be more like Sideshow and Charge less ?!!
Hulk Vs Wolverine diorama cost 600 $.

Has to be more to it then that they could just lower what they charged if they wanted. The Hulk Vs Wolv was a huge bargin they could have charged twice that, because Sideshows 1.5 statues are about $400. 00 to $450.00 and that dio is 3 statue in one. This piece is about right. Sideshow base is tiny, this base could add another $200.00.

Borrow money from a pessimist, they don't expect it back.

Sorry, but you speak like not a collector. This is not expensive for this statue at all. We are speaking of es 250, this piece is massive, please point a 20kg piece in that scale or, i dont know, perhaps they used a better raw material and paint app, things are not always that simple. Another point is that you can not criticise art, they decided this is $ 1000, because they know the cost of production and on. You can not compare sideshow with this from any single aspect

They could have raised the ES at a lower rate. I dont mean it in any kind of way other than now I can't get this piece, so I look at it as what would it take to make it possible for this piece to be avail?

This piece was just about were it should have been 3 1/5 statues on a huge base, and a low es. Sideshow could get away the Hulk Wolv maquette that cheap because they made so many.

pricing was in the right range for this piece but I guess there just was not enough demand

Sad news but i kinda knew it. 1/5 and being 1 huge piece wasn't doing it any favors especially at $1000+.

They should go back and split it down to 2 1/4 statues that can be displayed together or apart.

Maybe just the demand for Thundercats isn't there anymore, maybe a more stylized version like what SS did with He-man would sell better too.
