    Well if you ignore the collectible value. I would say it probably cost in the low hundred thousands. The Begins costume cost that much more because sculpting
    was involved. I think less work certainly goes into developing something that is bascially a spandex suit. However the materials used would jack the price up.

    Well from a deverlopment point of view I am sure it was expensive. They spent alot of tme playing with new fabrics and they even created a few to try with the suit.

    Thats an expensive process to go through.

    The codpiece alone must have cost a cool hundred grand from all the material used to produce such a massive piece of "equipment".

    Too bad it doesn't look it. It's a decent suit at best.

    imagine what that suit would cost in 'fake-life.' Lois was a fool to return that cape in S4.

    I don't get it. Or maybe it's just so simple and I'm thinking something else.

    ferrari's are usually 150,000+ easily...so you rip the suit, you obviously can't sew it, cuz the seams will show up on the scre---oh wait :rolleyes:

    Basically, he's saying that each suits cost north of $150 K like cyclone pointed out, so when you rip one, you can't really mend it, so it's like completely losing 150 grand.

    $85,000 a piece, they dont have the screen printing and web and spider add on's like the Spider-man suit. Im just happy he's not all sculpted muscle, he'll actually be able to move.

    ^^ Ok, thanks. Yeah, that's what I thought it meant but I didn't know these suits were that damn expensive. Holy jeez. Not exactly something you'd wear to cut the grass in or change your oil.
