By making only 300 of these figures, you are just handing out very rare and expensive items for free who will be able to sell them on eBay or Bricklink for $xxx. How does that benefit LEGO? If items offered were more like the TC-14 promo or Hulk promo, then LEGO would directly benefit because it requires purchases.

I think we forget that the ones most shortchanged out of these rare figs are kids and I'm sure we all know how having a different or unique toy can really entertain a kid. Some of us may cringe at the idea of scuffing a rare figure during daily play but the experience means a lot to them. Good job LEGO. :)

admiralheinrich - how was the figure packaged? Was it a polybag? Special packaging like the Bizarro, Shazam, Spider-man and Phoenix figures form SDCC? Ziploc?
