Recently, I have eard a lot of fuss about Life & Like correcting -at high- their MRSP on to-be-released items as the GP18s and GP60s. Some LHS have complained that they already had a lot of pre-orders with pricing based in the previous MRSP, and now they were left with the issue of: 1) eating the increase off their margin (not a good fix) 2) traslate the increase to the customers that had the items pre-ordered (no comments...) 3) go 'salomonic' (cut off part of the increase from their margins and traslate the rest to customers). I don't know the real dimension of it, but it don't seems to me a wise bussiness practice this. If you left the final customers with the feeling of have been 'toasted', and the distributors/dealers take all the flak (in their wallet and in their ears) for the increases, soon the people (LHS and modellers) will choose not pre-ordering items from these manufacturers, prefering instead to 'wait and see'. Only my point.
