I have been thinking about this one. Everyone is willing to pay an arm and a leg for carded figs like Flint, Firefly, etc. The Cobra 5-pack is the only way to get the Baroness in black, and they are not easy to find in stores anymore. Why has the price on these not heated up like single carded pieces do? Thoughts?
My feedback thread is here.

I first bought them at $25 plus taxes/shipping. So one reason is, on a cost basis, they're $25-$30.
Second, people prefer carded figures unless they want them loose.
Third, it's likely a carded Baroness of the same likeness is coming out in the future.
Fourth, there are a lot of other figures that you could spend $80 on. I'd rather do that then buy a 5 pack for $80.

There are still quite a few at toysrus for 29.99. I think that once they do start drying up they might go up, but I think that they made a guzilion of them so alot of people that wanted them have them. Maybe once the movie gets closer and some new people jump on the bandwagon late they might pay much more for them if not available at retail anymore.

In the recent past, you could buy that Baroness on eBay for under 5 bucks. Like others have said, it isn't a popular figure (though Firefly wasn't very popular at first, either. . .), and the 5 packs are plentiful, and have been bought by many just for that red sigil troop, so the other, loose figs are cheap.
However, the price on that figure should go up at some point. Collectors are fickle creatures, and when/if they realize that this version of Baroness is not as easy to come by as other figures, then I'm sure that her value will go up (look at what happened with the formerly peg warming Firefly and Snake Eyes).

I had thought about this the about 2 months ago and bought mine another set as well, just to keep in the box, problem is that the earlier version of the BOX set had the old style postioning, and did not have a CHROME finish on the Top Edge like the rest of the Box....newer versions have, what has been called the varient positioning, and full chrome type finish all around the box....and thats all i can find now a days....sooo keep your eyes peeled....and I can bet an arm and a leg that the new Cobra Trooper Red Sigil will be different than the one we have in the 5 box set.......ok im going to bed now...
