I can see $4.60 as the shipping cost for one. Now you have to add on the cost to package the plane. Add on the cost to make the plane. Add on the cost to make the misc. things that go in it (sticker sheets, catalog pamphlet, etc..). So now we're probably up to around 12-15 bucks.
Then there's shipping once it hits the states. That has to be taken into account.

Joe profit cushions have always spiked my interest.
Alley Viper attached to the Strike Team Urban Division 82nd.
Cobra wants you! I'm looking for some ruthless Vipers to fill the ranks. Joes need not apply.

A toy vehicle should never really be more than 40 bucks IMO... *looks at Star Wars stuff* LOL. But I'd pay 50 for a shiny new Sky Striker... all I need is one.
To save cost they can make it a store exclusive, have it require assembly, require all stickers to be put on manually, put it in the old school boxes, get rid of the parachutes, and they don't even need to give us a figure either.

No more than what the other planes are going for. $50 is too high. I want one, bt not for $50. I still haven't gotten the other two, but will eventually.

Lets just play Fun Happy Math Time.
In the 80s
Awe Striker $6.39
Current Day Prices
Rattler $24.99 (2.5x)
Conquest $24.99 (2.5x)
Awe Striker $14.99 (2.3x)
Hiss $14.99 (2.3x)
Shark $14.99 (2.3x)
So Just this basic math suggests if Hasbro Had the molds a Current day Skystriker would be About $36 Dollars.
But we know they don't!
Since we know Mold Making is free, the price shouldn't go up right? Wrong. Hasbro would likely price a remolded Skystriker at around $59.99. Maybe Even $69.99 And to make it seem like a Better deal toss a Firebat in there, and 2 Cobra figures. Then when they went on a clearance and no retailer wanted anymore large vehicles you can kiss the dreams of anything else large from happening.

Also noteworthy: All of those vehicles that have been re-released have been with either the old molds, or slightly retooled old molds. Presumably completely (or mostly) new tooling would push it towards a higher price.

50.00 is the max i would even think about paying. but 40 seems like a nice number.

I dont really consider this to be a large item, not like the BMF or the AT-TE and now there is other STAR WARS stuff coming down the pike, HASBRO really cant afford to alienate the older crowd. Look at the 25th ANNIV. line, they didnt even see that line going beyond a few waves, now its up there and its just going to be put on hiatus for the movie. The repainted vehicles didnt hurt thier sales too badly either. The new GI JOE MOVIE toys suck ass, they even look like crap which is saying alot. I cant even see anything in there that I want to customize and I use everyday items from containers to cardboard. HASBRO really needs a HAIL MARY pass and bring collectors and fans back in. These garrish looking missile launchers with the figures is not the way to go.
