It's fucking asinine.
Anyone with eyes and lacking a net worth in the 7 figures would think so.
It's an incredible
art piece but I guarantee you that price isn't from production costs or labor. That's pure collector's tax. Non licensed statues built by fans and artists that are LARGER and just as intricate, are 1/4th that price. Period. Square's mainlining pure uncut greed with this.
That S-E merch tweet got ratio'd by fans, big spender fans,
who were willing to drop 3 to 4 GRAND on this.
Like, I don't even know what to say that's not just derisive scorn. It's bullshit. That's the price of a fucking car. You know, an actual machine you can ride.
We went from $800-$1000 FFIX, to $2k Nier Automata, to $12k FFVI.
Get the fuck out of my face, Square
. Who the fuck do you think you are? You think folks are that dumb? LMFAO
Unlikely. This is limited to 600. This is contracted out and the molds are usually destroyed upon completion to prevent bootleggers from making knock offs on the secondary market. Unless S-E makes the deliberate choice to release it again, this is the run.
And they almost never do that. Their high end goods are limited for a reason. If this were bring arts or play arts kai, it'd be a different story. But it isn't.
