It looks great but was the price a typo? I mean $80 ?!? Seriously?
BBTS has the new Batman series listed at $26.99 each so two complete figures still work out to less than the Spidey set.

According to Dr. Mego that price point was the loop-hole that allowed them to be able to do those sets and not have Hasbro fighting them. It's all because of how the license works.

Thanks. I'm not going to pretend to completely understand this but I'll take a shot: does it mean that they can produce the figures only if they meet a minimum MSRP which in this case is $80? Does that move the figure into a different classification like adult collectible or something? For that price they should have included at least one more Spidey outfit (black, Scarlet Spider etc.) Geez I just had a flashback to that 12" Ben Riley figure Toy Biz put out with both of Bens costumes. Got that for about $10 at Ames back in the day

As I understand it, yes. it has to do with the MSRP.
