It was and still is a great line. The figures are fantastic. I just think the price point scared away a lot of potential collectors.

The price was definitely an issue, especially when they were releasing them almost every Friday.

Gemini has a ton of Hikari for some great prices right now. They are selling "bulk" bundles of certain figures where you get 2 of each for $34. They also finally added in free shipping at $100. I may make a big order here later today and split with a local friend who also loves Hikari.

I'm sad they are done with Hikari though, the figures are really awesome.

like most art pieces, hikari has only started to be appreciated my more and more collectors now that its gone. it might have been because of pricing or the masses focusing on pops, but hikari just never "stuck" with collectors. i love my SW hikari and still admire my AP TT sunrise batman.

The Hikari line has never been one that we collected, only have a couple in our entire collection. Do I think it’ll blow up, honestly i don’t, but that’s just my opinion, I can be wrong…

Yeah, they had plenty of time for this but it never happen. It's unfortunate because they really are nice. Maybe they'll do a one off in the future, perhaps at Fundays or one of those events.

Yes, another line that has come and gone. I think if they kept them smaller and more exclusive, they might have survived longer.

That's a lot of Hikari!!! I got up to about 180 and that was probably about 70-75% of the line. Hard to imagine going 100% on them and displaying them all!

Yeah, the boxes were twice the size of a pop and some ran even bigger like the cereal monsters. I have about 20 on display but have to constantly rotate them out to get a fresh look.

Super cool. I see a few on eBay still but some of the prices are too high. It's always nice finding one at a local store for a more reasonable price.

Some of the boxes are really huge. You can only stack two Hikaris on top of each other. Anything more and it's going down... lol

Not really the max, but if I stack more than two, they tip over. Unless, you have supports on the side like a wall or shelf.
