Fair point, but I would counter that these products are not movie tie-ins (except maybe the Iron Man and Thor).
As long as distributors buy all the product, the card companies won't care. But I have a feeling the big buyers from the distributors are starting to feel the pinch, based on some comments I've seen lately.
One major player has presold some of the key artists in the MGB release before the product has even dropped. That tells me he thinks they will go for even less than Bronze Age, which probably set the price for the presales.
