As many know, the difference between Limited Edition kits and Open Edition kits is that fewer kits are (generally) produced when the kits are… well… limited!
This means that Limited Edition kits must apportion their costs among fewer kits, which raises the retail price of the kit as an automatic consequence. This is a two-edged sword, because while the bare unpainted kit might be more expensive to initially buy when the kit is a Limited Edition, the completed kit is also generally more valuable (because there are fewer of them).
Bountiful Baby has been making Open Edition kits, but we are considering releasing some of our upcoming kits as Limited Edition. If we do so, those kits will need to carry a higher retail price-- probably about 50% more expensive-- than our existing kits generally do, in order to apportion the costs across what would be fewer produced kits.
What are your feelings about Limited Edition kits?
