Can't disagree with any of that, Draykov. Pushing the price on a range that lots of people got cheesed off over is not very smart. I mean, with the low production numbers on series 1 a percentage of the interested may have been lost (those who wanted to have them all from the start, they'll check out already), then pushing the price will turn off another percentage (those who didn't like the lesser quality). Not forgetting those who have already bailed out due to the negative experience of chasing them (successfully or not), for whom Lego is a joyful and relaxing pastime, and not something they want heart/panic attacks over (exaggeration, but you get my point).
Really, Lego is back to square one on this, or at the very least should reserve any judgement until the entire first wave of series' 1 to 3 have passed. The poor initial execution means they should view it as a false start, as public response may not be anything like it was with the much anticipated first series.
And Lego should remember, if these are primarily aimed at breaking into the swaps market where kids buy them at checkouts like football cards and chewing gum, putting the price up will just mean that "mommy says no, dear".
