Depends on who you buy them from, they range anywhere
between $10 and $15.

Another major offense of the RX-78-2 is how the beam
saber handles cannot be removed from the backpack.
So you get this weird image of Gundam holding two
beam sabers while both handles still remain on the back!

I dunno how much Spawn figures sell for over there, but
if it's about $10.00, the parents' reaction will most
likely be "how come the MSiAs are so expensive? Look
at what you get for the same price in a Spawn figure!"
