Things I can buy with 33 dollars + tax

33 Mc Double Cheese burgers


A box of size 4 Huggies and a box of wipes for the Jawa Baby


6 copies of Madden 2009


A pack of 50 Dunkin Donut Keurig coffee cartridges


A Black and Decker drill set


2 pairs of Carpenter Jeans from Wal-Mart



OR

The new Necron Codex.



Talk about sticker shock.  I went to a local store and bought a box of immortals, and the new dex, and it cost me 67 dollars.  I didn't look at the price tag on them before I paid. I am not really sure what I was expecting, maybe 50 bucks or so.  My eyeballs bulged out when I heard the price.

Speaking of bulge, did I ever say I think Alanis Morissette is hot?


Thank god for the Spikey Bits discount!

funny, I picked it up yesterday, and was thinking kind of the same thing, I remember codexes being 19 bucks.

Also Alanis Morissette is an annoying hippie pig.

That is all.

It is the weakening US$.
The exchange rate is making your purchases slightly more than normal.

(oops wrong button sorry)

I think you should have bought 6 copies of Madden 2009.

I think the price increase on the codex is not justified. At least the fantasy books are in full color. When is that coming to 40k?

The Codex is $55 in Australia. Not sure why since our dollar is worth more than the US dollar at the moment so if anything it should be cheaper than $33 - I guess GW's policy of regional price fixing is working very nicely for them :(

Jawa I'm curious to your thoughts on this codex. I've decided to go all in on the crons and made a large purchase for the army (i had to start from scratch) so far it seems a little lack luster to me. I don't care as much because i do love the army, it almost feels like GW is forcing the crons to take special characters as with out them the army lacks something...

wow stunning O.O

You Aussies pay more because you're at the far end of the world.
That and the koalas. Damned koalas.

Holy crap that is expensive!!

alex said...

Elephant rocks are a good metaphor to the price and codex, too. It's just a robot-space marine edition.

Just look at this list from stelek, and you tell me that's not a SM formula.

Couple good options for Australia;

Download the free pdf
build the army with lego dudes.

Lack of support to the local GW, price increase is expected. But I Disgress.

You only have to pay 33 bucks on a Necron codex every 10 years. That works out to $3.30 per year, so it really isn't that bad.

DK said...

Darthmere: You would still be paying for shit though. I make that myself for free, and my shit might win more games than this codex...

alex said...

GW made some changes on codex update time frame. For the last couple years, we got an average about 3 new codices per year. If this holds true, it'll be less than 10 years.

Either way, $33 is still do-able. In fact, I personally don't mind the price increase so much. Supporting a game that you enjoy is worth it. Money comes money goes, as long as you are have fun spending it, that's what matters. But I Digress
