Default $70CDN Ven. Dread?

I was re-reading WD316 and I saw the price of the Ven Dread. My jaw dropped. $70CDN!?!? I mean is it made out of some expensive metal or something? FW ones are at most the same price if not cheaper!

I'm don't really know exactly how much $70 CND is in USD, but it sounds too much for a figure roughly:

Yes it's metal, alot of metal. Whole bloody thing I think. To bad too. Plastic would ahve had so many possibilities. However the whole metal body does make snese. I guess you guys never saw before the Dreadnaught was plastic?

Well, I think they could make mini's out of a less expensive metal, or maybe an alloy of some sort, you know? I mean we have the entire metal section of the Periodic Table GW! Find something other than pewter to make stuff out of.

You know if they did use something cheap the money would return to GW's pockets, not yours. Do you honestly think GW has to charge 70$ for a hunk of metal to break even? They could probably make a profit at half of that.

70 canadian is 62 US dollar.

the FW dread costs 34 which is 63,5 US dollar

so yeah price is quite similar.. I think that GW set the price in order to start compete with FW in the manner of dreads..

Yeah that sounds right. I think they raised the price to compete. It makes sense to doesn't it? With FW making expensive but cool 8) models GW would probably want to cut in on some of FW's profits.
