$90 is a lot, but it's a 13" tall action figure. He's HUGE! I saw an unpainted one in person. He'll make any of your other Darkseid figures run for cover.

What the hell? $90?

Is this supposed to be in scale with the 6 inch figures? He wasn't twice as tall as everybody else in the Justice League comic, was he?

I'm interested to see exactly how articulated it is. It sounds big enough to be half toy/half statue.

Yeah, seconded. Collecting isn't for the pauper class anymore is it?

I'm not sure what class this is aiming for. ThreeA toys have a similar price, but are hand-weathered and much more limited, and target the vinyl crowd. Hot Toys are more that $90 these days, but at least offer great articulation, accessories, and light-up features. At $90, I would think Darkseid would at least have that.

$90! For just a big hunk of plastic. Count me out. :(

What is DC Collectibles basing their price on?

I can see paying $90 for a Mattel 10 inch "build a figure" if you had to buy 6 figures at $15 each to get the parts. But then you had a total of 7 figures when you were done.

DC Collectibles wants you to pay that price for just 1 figure "nearly statue"?
They are crazy.

The teeth are made from hand carved ivory and delicately set into position. The gloves are crafted from the finest Corinthian Leather.
(Yeah Right)

Action Figure prices have taken a jump up lately and they say that they will go up again in 2013. I guess that market is trying to gauge how much people will be willing to spend on them. I shop for them On Clearance or if they are On Sale.

I'm not sure I'd pay $30 for that, much less $90. :roll:

I have no interest in that design so I'd have been out anyway.

Now that I've seen the price ... I can sit back and enjoy a hearty laugh at all those that do buy it.

:lol:

The price says no to me...

The design says no to me...

The scale says yes...

I will probably try and trade some Bronze for this from another local toy dealer. If I can't trade for it, I won't be owning it.

No interest in the character, had dozens of opportunities to get figures of him in the past. No need.

Now if they would make a few New Gods we still need in the 6 inch scale in a 6 inch scale, like High Father, I'd go for that - at a reasonable price.

We jumped from $18(ish) to $50 (Croc, which is almost understandably, plus Freeze, who is not worth $50), to $75 for Titan Joker (that's pushed beyond reason), to $90, which will officially kill interest in over half of DCC's customer base. Not much of a business plan.

I don't understand why this wasn't made to stay in scale with the New 52 Justice League figures. The figure only needed to be an inch or two taller than the Leaguers.
