For Alien and Predator fans...

Considering you can buy the entire set of Alien and Predator movies for $100, I don't see why we should pay $400 or so for that set. That's ridiculous.

 

The I Robot thing is neat but at what price? I certainly wouldn't pay it. The movie is $15 good but not $50-$75 including a trophy good.

 

Think about the difference abit. You pay $100 for the dvd's and still have $300 left over to buy whatever you want. I'm pretty sure you could get some killer memoribilia for the $300 you saved and still likely have money left over.

Don't know and honestly I don't even like the movie but I'll gladly admire the craftsmanship and look of the robot head. You are looking at these items from a cost vs. value stand point when the people that buy these types of items could care less about how much they cost. They want it for the collectibility above anything else.

 

I've spent well over 700 bucks on LOTR statues from sideshowtoys.com that could go towards more games and DVD's but I love the look of these statues and I love the collectible value they accrue even though I would never sell them.

Here's the Alien head Kelley is talking about:

 

Alien head DVD

 

That retailed for 400 bucks before shipping.

 

EDIT: The I,Robot head retailed for 175 bucks.

That's the import price by the way. The actual retail price for the box is about 270.

So true. As Oscar Wilde put it, a cynic knows the price of everything and the value of nothing. There are lots of things I own that I could have done without, but they make me happy so I don't even worry about what I paid for them.

For every one person whom agrees with you, there is another whom agrees with the side of the fence I'm on with regards to this. I wouldn't say you are nuts for paying it though as I have my own vices that cost money and I'm sure you'd be glad to point them out. We all have those.
