And now for some not-so-good news


Due to spiraling costs, new and upcoming releases of DC DIRECT action figures will now all be priced at $19.95 each, with full sets of four figures (called an "Inner Case") priced at 10% OFF. We have put off raising the price on these for over ten years now, and we just can't let it go any more. DC raised the net price on all DC Direct figures about three months ago to drastically higher net costs and now we are sadly forced to follow suit. Additionally shipping on bulky action figures is never cheap and shipping costs have also been creeping up. We're very sorry we had to do this but we have no choice. It has become LITERALLY CHEAPER TO NOT CARRY DC DIRECT FIGURES than it is to carry them. Something had to give. Thanks for your understanding.

Anyone who has already placed special preorders with us on ANY upcoming DC Direct action figures is NOT obligated to pick them up at the new price.

Any questions should be directed at the Managers and Ned and Bill. Again, we apologize profusely.

I wondered when this would happen, I've seen that higher price elsewhere for a while now. It's too bad, but kudos to you guys for towing the line as far as you did.

I don't blame you guys at all for raising the prices on DC Direct. Even mass market figures like DCUC are selling at $14.99, so limited market ones like DC Directs should be higher. When they were introduced fifteen years ago, DC Direct figures were around $13 each while mass market McFarlanes were $8.

I think you guys did an amazing job keeping costs down for as long as you did. As long as DC Direct keeps up the high quality and varied selection of what they are offering, I think the figures will still move even at the higher price. The entire toy market is inflating like crazy. Mattel.com just sold an animated-style Lobo figure as an exclusive on their site for $20. Two years ago you could buy a six-pack of animated-style figures for $19.99, including one "big guy" like Grodd or Doomsday. It's just how things are now.
