Are mass-market collector toys dying? The price of raw materials and the production process continue to skyrocket. Action figures that were $7.99 five years ago are now in stores for over $20. At that price can you still be a "completist"? And will there even be a next generation of collectors if parents can't afford more than one or two figures? How have collectors' habits changed along with the economy and are toy companies doing anything to counteract price hikes and hold on to the collectors market? Moderator Daniel Pickett (ActionFigureInsider.com, Geek Shall Inherit Podcast) discusses these issues with toy industry experts Jerry Macaluso (Pop Culture Shock Collectibles), Eric "Cornboy" Mayse (The Four Horsemen Design, Mattel MOTUC), Eric Treadaway (The Four Horsemen Design, Mattel MOTUC), and Jean St. Jean (Jean St. Jean Studios, DST).
