I agree with ya.
A Tek Case is only $58 and that is also laser cut acrylic. The 2 thin sheets of sheet metal the Arcade Forge DIY case has does not justify the $167.47 (129 €) pricetag.
Even if Arcade Forge has an outside contractor doing the laser cutting for them, I still can’t justify that price.
I can get a DIY Foe Hammer case as cheap as $84.
I honestly think this “market will bear” attitude of some vendors and merchants needs to end.
That practice is the reason very a few European vendors are so overpriced compared to their US, Canadian and Korean Counterparts who have more competitive pricing.
That attitude is also why so many sticks on eBay and Amazon is so overpriced.
