My problem with the price is that the Marvel Legends line, which is the same scale (At least in terms of height. I'd say they're actually bulkier), retails for $14.96 at Wal-Mart. I understand not all licenses are the same, but that's a $5 swing . I'm with you on the stand. I was really disappointed when Hasbro stopped including them with their 3 3/4". With the 6" they're really almost a necessity.
