I was expecting them to be $9.99 at most. I wasn't expecting $12.99. I was honestly hoping for $4.99, near the Pokemon figures that also have NFC compatibility. But, I'll give them the benefit of the doubt to see them in person and gauge the quality plus, I'd like to know all that they are able to do, before I give final judgment on the price.
I don't know. I mean, even basic action figures are like $10 at TRU nowadays so it isn't that steep if it is a figure and more.
That's basically my take. Sure if you want to collect all of them, it'll set you back some. But that just reminds me of back when I was a kid and you wanted to collect all the Transformers in a set so you could put them together to make the cool giant robot. That was expensive too.
If the quality of the figure is decent, then buying one or two of my favourite characters isn't so bad.
