Why is version A so expensive? He comes with no switch outs and a small base, yet he is the same price as Magneto! Magneto has a huge base, three heads, and two sets of arms.

sorry for the confusion, I wasn't asking for an actual plastic optical blast, just think this pose would look much better with a screaming portrait. As it is right now it looks too calm and lacks emotion IMO

To discourage you from buying it, 150 dollars/110 Usd more and you get an extra torso and base.

Prices have actually increased across the board.

Classic Ironman also had 2 torsos but he retailed at 999Sgd only. But I have a heavy suspicion they are using a better factory for this. Paint apps stood out for me for this/Brown wolverine/hulk transformation.

I'm not sure about using better factories, but it could be true.

As for the price difference, it doesn't seem logical. The cost for Version B makes sense, but I agree that Version A is overpriced.

There isn't that much of a difference "helping" collectors who were concerned about the cost point. With this statue it makes total sense to just buy Version B for $150 more.

And if you want to compare cost with something more recent than Magneto -- Storm was cheaper than Cyclops. And she comes with a different portrait, cape, and arms. And her base is bigger!

I think white Magneto went up for pre-order after Storm. But, comparing it to something very recent - Starlord comes with 2 heads, swap out arm, and a bigger base for the same price. They should have just done the one version with both torsos for 1099 SGD.

Yea, it's all the same concept of WTH is up with this statue's pricing. Head scratcher for sure.

I love the colors on this! Is the screaming torso still leaning a bit to his right? I thought I heard they were going to make him more vertical?
