2.0 out of 5 stars Pale comparison, April 14, 2012
This review is from: Marvel The Avengers Gamma Green Smash Fists (Toy)
These are a pale comparison to the smash hands released in 2004. They are much smaller, have no wrists and they don't have any sound! The original smash fists made noise when you hit something which made them a lot of fun.
A major dissapointment for a $30 toy.

Amen to that!! I bought a set of the Hulk Hands with sounds effects for my nephew a few years ago and wish I had stashed a few more pairs. I need them for a theme gift and these new ones are pretty lame. The sound effects totally made the product--now these are just mediocre & will undoubtedly be tossed aside by most kids after one or two uses. Funny enough, someone is selling a new pair of the old version (with the smash effect sounds) for $239.00!!!

Nonsense. That's not the retail price and never was. Any seller can list anything for any price he wishes. I could list these for $500 if I want, and if anybody is foolish enough to pay it, I'll gladly sell it. A fair comparison is with the old model and what it sold for, and the new model and what it sells for. If you adjust for inflation, $30 today is the equivalent of about $24 in 2004. Were they more or less than that back then?

The electronic hands (hulk hands) were the same price points as these stupid things.. Heck, Avengers had a tie in that worked for 30-35, so these are a waste of money.

What do you mean by "same price point"? If the electronic hands were $30 in 2004, then the same price point would be $37 today. $30 in 2004 had the same buying power as $37 today according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. These are selling for $16.91. That means that the electronic hands would have needed to have been sold for $13.68 to be at the same price point as these if you factor in inflation.

If you don't factor in inflation, you are talking about irrelevant prices. The house my parents live in cost about $14,000 when they bought it. Nearby homes now sell for about $500,000. That doesn't make them rip offs or mean that they should be selling for $14,000 today. Be realistic.

The price I listed when I originally posted my review was $30.00. They've come down in price since then. I don't know where Wayne came up with "... not the retail price and never was". Before you start spouting off, maybe you better do some checking. What Ryan is saying is the original hands were selling for nearly the same price as these new ones and were a superior product. Incidentally, I don't know how this adds to the discussion - my original intent was to point out that these hands are pale comparison to the originals and a boring toy. I only added the last line because I thought that they were expensive for what they are.

It clearly says which post I was replying to. That post said that the original ones are $200. I said that wasn't relevant. I never said your numbers weren't relevant.
