Toybiz's plastic isn't that durable...

 

 

Hasbro's Plastic is incredibly hard...my 200 batmen are very strong....after 11 years. of hard play.

Well, the 2 figures really aren't comperable. Unicron's made of much higher quality plastic possiblely-- i'm assuming what's been said is true, i've never actually played with that Spidey-- Unicron's loaded with electronics and gimmicks (spring launching missles, the jaws/mandibles on his planet mode), and, oh yeah, he Transforms :P

 

Designing a toy to do that and building them around those kind of hinges and joins is what raises the prices on TFs.

Yeah, the reissues seem to be overpriced, and everything does cost a lot, but it is pretty cheap. Imagine how hard it would be to design something that transforms into a robot and something else, and looks good in both modes. Now consider doing it for 19 years. Now come up with some more! Yeah, that's a lot of work, and therefore a lot of money.
