Not "BAD" at all!

The accessories and extras are pretty light for a DX, huh?

This set has less stuff than the Thriller MJ figure and I'm assuming it will cost about the same or probably a little more.

I guess this means that the only thing that makes a DX a DX are the PERS eyes. Because, aside from that and the reused display base (from TDK), there isn't much else that makes this any more special compared to regular Hot Toys figures.

Behind HT is a marketing strategy that previous releases of DX with a deluge of accessories are to open up a new segment (premium) and subsequent releases (in the future) tap on customer's loyalty (if any) to enrich the profit by gradually reducing production costs (say with less innovation or accessories). Clever, apperently sound, but may not work on us wise collectors!

Hi Stacie

These museum quality figures were released some time ago now and the best place to find them would be on e-bay or amazon. Mind you, they don't come cheap.
