Max Factory is going to release the figma 042 Golgo 13 ( ゴルゴ13 ) action figure from the longest running adult manga “Golgo 13” ( ゴルゴ13 ). Will be released in August 2009. Around 150mm tall, 3,619 yen. Bundled with Golgo 13 theme di:stage.
Another scam from Max Factory. You cannot just buy your favorite Golog 13 figma alone, you have to get the Max Factory newest design figure stand “di:stage” too. This Golgo 13 figma set is bundled with the Golgo 13 theme di:stage (fyi, the Golgo 13 theme thingy is just paper craft) which only cost 552 yen if you buy it alone. That means the Golgo 13 figure cost 3,619-552=3,067 yen which is so over priced.
I really hate Max Factory/GSC. I really don’t like how they marketing stuff. They always make us like a fool and force us to pay extra to get the figures that we want. We all know it’s a trap but still we all fall for it. And they’re also the reason why the PVC figure are so $$$ nowadays. It’s really hard to believe we need to pay extra 50% for a single figure compared to 2 years ago. I hate you Max Factory/GSC! But still I’ll keep buying figures for them, I hate myself. XD
