    Default Re: Weta Gollum 1:3 Scale

    I really want this....but the price is just too much to justify to me. Maybe if it was in the 1000-1200 range, but that's it for me.

    It is a shame they are so crazy with their retail prices lately, this will probably kill any hope of more 1/3 from them. I can't imagine this will sell well without hefty discounts.

    I really don't see Weta selling 589 of these....maybe half tops...unless 50% off BF sales or huge big foreign money interest comes in....etc,etc
    If they move, kill em!

    I really wanted to get it too, hopefully next black Friday we will all have a chance to snag one at a reasonable price.

    While I appreciate Weta's black Friday sales, if they put this up I really think they have to reevaluate their business model. Smaug and the Balrog finally sold out at major discounts, great for their customers and for them ultimately...

    At what point do you decide to pay full price or wait for a major discount?

    This Gollum seems like to high-end a piece to be doing that (I could be wrong). I wouldn't be happy to pay the full price only to have someone pay less than half down the road. Not a great precedent for a new higher end line of collectables.

    That seems to be their new business model. Get as many overpriced orders from impatient collectors as they can, and discount the rest when the orders stop coming in instead of just pricing them reasonably in the first place. I guess it ends up working better for some of us, we get some nice deals.
