I think the UR team should make more than 1,000. By producing more, suppliers usually will offer lower prices for bulk manufacture, allowing more to be sold into the market.
By limiting it to just 1,000 instead of 10,000 for example, the cost price of manufacture could outweigh the possible generated revenue of selling this Kolos
figurine into the huge market that have a waiting demand for it.
This said, I have a feeling that there will be a huge "black market" on eBay, where people who have got the figurine, will sell it at a much higher price, compared to what Amazon would cost at USD 44.90. This will be a similar effect to Crs, where limited supply cause "black market" effects in the Cr market. All these would then be a missed opportunity for the UR team to gain revenue, losing this opportunity to the "black market".
Just my 2 cents worth.
