So FTC said vehicles might be coming soon. So, how much would YOU pay for a repro BatLab, Jokermobile or other vans?

No need for deep thoughts by Jack Handy or defending "why" you'd pay a certain price. Just gimme a dollar amount. :silly:

$29.99 :-)

$39.99 to 49.99 would seem reasonable.

If this were The Price is Right I would be yelling out that's to much :-) LOL

The figs will be $25-$30; I doubt the vehicles will be cheaper.

The MM Castle was $70.

Well since I got outbid for another Joker Mobile that went over $200 I would love to get them for $50-60 each.

I would cobble one together with some LEGO found in the crevices of the world's family room couches.

I was thinking around $50.

I was thinking around $50.

I think 49.99 would be a fair price - for say a batlab or joker van etc.
maybe like 34.99 for a batmobile?

I think at 60.00 the batlab/ van would still sell but not as fast.
most of us are all in on 2 sets of figures each - so that is 200.00 a series

so would be sweet if we can get the cars/vans for a fair price.

Hilarious. I think about it that way too.

There ain't no way that thing will be less than $125.00

I'd pay, like, a hundred bucks for a Jokermobile repro. I always wanted one of those things, dangit. Half price for a near exact duplicate makes sense to me.

I could see it going for more, especially if they do up a limited number of them. I don't think there's enough of an audience for a big release. Which is too bad, 'cos I still need a Mego 8" scale VW bug for my Widowmaker custom....

Well, it's still far cheaper than a minty Mego one and definitely worth it to the deep-pocketed collector that really wants one... if done really well that is.

Yeah, the tooling on something like this ain't free. Mattel is charging $200 for Castle Grayskull and they've got a wider audience with much more disposable income.

I will be skipping the vehicles, and save for the playsets.

Man, if you guys think that the van will be that much, how much are they going to charge if they made a Wayne Manor? Are we talking $250-$300 bucks?

I think Palitoy's nailed it. The recent monster castle was $70 and it's basically laminated cardboard.

The price of plastic has escalated greatly, and a small run means even higher pricetg. But I hope they do it.

$70? I paid $99 when it came out. It maybe $70 now. It's not worth $70. Hopefully they improve accessories/play sets if they do come out with them.

Castle Greskull is $300 actually.

$50.00 to $60.00 would be ok...

If they manage to sell exact replicas, I would buy them at a decent price. Those are good ideas, because the market value on the originals are insane. I imagine they would price them around $79.99. If they come out over $100.00, I would have to think long and hard.

I adore a good misspelling that inadvertently speaks another point. :-)

Mattel has the 66 Batmobile priced at $50-$60, and are offering a preorder for a 6" scale Ecto-1 from Ghostbusters for $215!!!

I think Brian is right.
