Marvel Heroes to start selling limited edition costumes
The first batch includes three costumes: Winter Soldier Movie (Maskless Variant), Hawkeye Hawkguy (Sweatpants Variant), and Star-Lord Movie (Headphones Variant). As the “limited” implies, there will only be a certain number of these on sale, and once they are sold out, they will be gone forever. Each costume comes with
a special power (to display the limited edition seal), an emote, and a title.
The forums have been awash with heated debate over whether or not this is a good idea, with the topic pushing to 96 pages thus far. Will artificial scarcity plus sweatpants equal big profits for Marvel Heroes? Stay tuned and see.
Update: Gazillion announced that the costume variants will no longer be limited editions, but will be sold for a limited time (two weeks) with a price matching guarantee if it ever reappears in the store.[Source: Marvel Heroes forums, update. Thanks to Paul and Markillion for the tip!]
