All way overpriced from my perspective. Then again, I don't 'collect'. I 'buy to build'. Different market.

2 of these 3 kits are not so rare: the Chang Zheng 2 was still on the shelf at the museum of science last year.
the mini roc Delta Katt was just on Ebay for less than $30.00
the inflation price for the Astro bee D is about $39.00 ( I bought one for $20.00 in 1991)
I would not pay these prices for any of the above kits, but back in the day I would of had built any of one of them.

These Kits are not even in the same league as the Hen Grade.

Yes, there is such a thing as NORMAL
, if you have to ask what is "NORMAL" , you probably aren't
