Yeah like what i said, do brick forge items come with the minifigures? im wondering because i might need to get more minifig stuff from lego. com cause its such a hassle to get all the things i need from like5 different sites. if they dont then these items are kinda a ripoff for $1.00-$3.00

no, they do not include minifigures.
they are expensive because they are custom.
lego would never make these (or at least for a long time)
and Armothe and Red bean make the casts themselves, which involves a lot of hard work.

Actually they're not a ripoff, they're 1-3$ because they're custom made. if you got the whole fig for 1-3$ you would be ripping them off, now wouldnt you?

BA is expensive to make. Anyway, a whole fig even without custom parts is rarely that little.

Since BrickForge is not a huge company like LEGO they can't afford to charge any less. True, the plastic doesn't cost close to that much, but they need to keep up the site, make profit, and most of all buy moulds. It costs thousands of dollars to buy just one mould (or so I've heard). And look around on BrickLink, official LEGO weapons and armor are anywhere from 50 cents to a few dollars.

It's still the same $3 sand green armor that Brickforge sells.

I'm not sure if this was serious or not, but PLEASE refrain from smoking crack before posting.
