Re: 2 new bike themed girls and Zel+Bragg repaints from WonF

Postby Pyaamon » Wed Feb 09, 2011 5:46 am

I'd love some release dates and a price range for some of the repaints - I'm trying to cut down on what I pick up this year, and while I'm thankful wonfes has only given me shinkis to drool over, I'd still like some time line as to what to expect.

Remember when Proxima and Celes were first proto-typed? They took forever to come out. Are we going to see the new bikers in 2011, or is it the end of 2012? You never know with Konami.

Re: 2 new bike themed girls and Zel+Bragg repaints from WonF

You're not alone in that, Zress. Things are starting to get out of hand now and it's gotten to the point where some of us are no longer sure that we can keep up - or want to.

That being said I don't think Aefils realized everyone was talking about budgetary constraints; the proxy list is the usual reply when someone asks where they can get an exclusive they've seen floating around on other sites.

To throw wood on the fire; I reckon the repaints of Zel and Bragg will probably sit around 4000. Our bikers will probably be attached to the new Battle Masters game and cost an arm and leg and 20,000 yen.

I know I've said this in another thread - what do we do? I feel bad about picking up the girls now because I don't like paying the higher prices for something that contains the same amount of plastic as previous models. I don't know if I can justify buying them any more despite loving them so much. Where does a person draw the line?

Sure, the exclusive Shinkis are very expensive, but they're not inaccessible.
Everyone has access to proxies, it's just that you don't want to pay that much. Those are two different issues.

For me it was rather easy to draw the line. I only buy the designs I really like and that's it.

It really just is what we get for being outside of the target market. I personally wouldn't mind so many exclusives if the Yen to Dollar rate was better for us, but currently it's in a spot that can only be described as 'ouch'.

Prices go up because of inflation, more exclusives for whatever reason, and we're left in the dust because we really are just a small portion of their sales.

Sucks, but as foreigners we have to accept that they're not thinking of us and they won't be. Busou Shinki already failed over here.

My gripe is an age old debate about parts and production costs - not the target market. I want to know that the prices are high because of inflation and because of the Yen; not that Konami knows the fans will pay anything for these and will keep increasing the prices.

Thing is, I probably will shell out for what I want. I'm weak like that X3

Yeah.. its rough on the wallet.
I guess I've complained enough about it though... back when the Arnval & Strarf MK II's first came out and were really pushing my WANT button and were so costly/hard to obtain. I was real happy when the repaints came out. I thought I might have a chance with the Altines re-release... but at $150 USD I guess I am coming to realize theres always going to be something I want but cant justify spending so much on. It really felt like they were milking it for all its worth. But cest la vie. I'll continue to enjoy my standard releases for now
