Keep in mind that the cost includes the parts and how much the creator paid to obtain them from bricklink or other sources, the material required to produce and assemble the instructions and packaging (that's a fair amount of colour ink), the actual time spent sorting the parts into individual packages, not to mention theffort designing the model in the first place, then a little bit of actual profit on top. $40 is a very reasonable price for a custom model at this size. This is all taking into account that it's his only model for sale at this time, and he's not even trying to make a large profit on this because it's not a business. This model, produced and sold by the guys over at Brickmania, costs $25 on its own and has limited appeal to historic collectors.That said, I understand that $40 may be a little steep for you individually, but objectively speaking, the price is actually quite good for a custom model of this size.
Wow, it actually looks like Steven Hawking!Love the man, love the set, hate the price. 40 bucks seems a bit much for such a small set.
