In Reply to: Mattel Wants to Know - Do you want cheaper figures? posted by Julius Marx

: There has been a lot of discussion all over the internet about the rising cost of action figures and Mattel's subscriptions. Today Scott asked the question over on the He-Man.org boards - Would you want the return of $20 figures if it meant having to take away things like accessories, paint ops and/or packaging?
:
: "I've seen a lot of comments today on Facebook about Fangman not being worth $25/$27.00. I wish it was less expensive to make these figures but reality being what it is, production/material costs have risen necessitating this price increase (that in all fairness we announced back in July!).
:
: As we start looking at a potential 2014 line, do fans want the same quality/accessories and package we have now, or would you prefer we found ways to cost reduce the figures back down to $20.00? This would likely include things like very minimal packaging (i.e. a polly bag), no accessories and reduced deco.
:
: What say you? Keep as is or go for a less expensive version of figures that can come in closer to $20.00? Just curious what everyone's thoughts are.
