(1) why some local collectors are selling (to local buyers) Rhino, Mysterio and other Marvel Universe action figures with a high mark-up when there are stocks available in the local stores at a lower price.
(2) why these figures are made available just recently in the local toy stores when they have been released last year and the toy line has been discontinued/re-branded.
(3) why a change in name warrants an increase in price without changing the quality, only the packaging,
(4) why the official distributor of the new/re-branded Marvel Universe figures insists on selling them at a high price when other small-time sellers are offering them at a lower price especially those obscure characters like the Death's Head.
I did get for myself the three figures in the above photo. They are cheaper than the re-branded line. I'm keeping my lust for these toys under control.
