# Funny math on Don't Starve Collectible Figures

## Recommended Posts

UPDATE: I added in shipping costs and things make much more sense now.

Mods: feel free to delete this if you so desire, thanks.

I just posted this over on KLEI's Facebook page, so hopefully they'll clarify.

I was going to order a few more Don't Starve collectible figures and noticed something odd about the pricing.

Ignoring shipping costs , the cost of a single figure is \$12.99

I'm going to round up, so lets just say \$13 per box.

Now, if you select the 3 box option from the store the total is \$33.

That's \$11 per figure, or a discount of \$2 each

If you go with the 8 box option the total is \$95.

That's \$11.85 per figure, or a discount of \$1.15 each

If you go with the full box option the total is \$185.

That is \$11.56 per figure, or a discount of \$1.44 each.

So, when you break it all down the 3-box option is the most cost effective.

If you order 3, 3-packs the total would be \$99 as opposed to \$117.

It's also like getting the 8-pack plus one extra figure for \$4 more.

I'm not looking to cause a fuss with this, it just struck me as odd - especially since I want to pick up more figures for myself and I'm looking to do so in the most economical way.

I guess the whole thing is moot, as you can't add more than one 3-pack to your order (or at least I couldn't seem to do it as I was looking at the KLEI shop).

I would think buying a full box would be the best bargain, but apparently it isn't.

Anyone else find this odd?

Oh, and one more thing - the full box DOES NOT include a chase figure. At least mine didn't

Ok, enough math for now.

I got my box of figures from the Kickstarter, so I'm late to the party on this one.

On Facebook KLEI said this is due to the shipping costs which I haven't gone back to compare yet.

So, disregard if you'd like. I'd delete the post but I don't see the option.

Now, how many figures to order...

Ok, I redid the math on this including shipping and here is the breakdown of total cost per figure:

1 Figure - \$19.54

3 Figures - \$13.35

8 Figures - \$13.55

16 Figures - \$12.81

So, a box of 16 is the best deal. Next is a package of 3, but only slightly less than a half box of 8.

I swear I am done with this now. I may just go for another box at this point.

Each figure comes with one unique item and one random item (two items per character).

For instance, Wilson comes with a Spear plus one of 14 other random items.

There are four mystery items, though I'm not sure yet exactly what they are.

Hope that helps.

The prices just looked funny at first, but then KLEI said they figured out the pricing with shipping it all made sense.

I'm still debating what to do. Only looking for a few more figures, but tempted to buy a whole case to up my odds of getting the ones I want. Or at least more fodder for trades.

if you wish, buy a whole case, but, you will be spending \$200 on toys, i would buy 6, (\$80.08 if you live in the united states) however, getting a full case will almost guarantee you finishing off your collection for good, while buying a 6 pick is probably a smarter choice, riskful, but smart, anyway, you are about guaranteed to receive 1 of the figures your missing with the 6-pack. if you can afford it, and don't regret buying it, i would recommend the retail box. (if you need maxwell, than you should really try the retail box.)
