You read everything literally, i have noticed this about you.
Some of your posts in regards to retail prices you expect some are actually the dealer price a retailer pays the distributor/supplier as in cost price (As in price before retailer add their profit margin)

Retailers have profit margin and it's not as much as you think it is when it comes to Blu-ray disc and box set releases

The manfacture of the products needs to have a profit margin on items it makes for distributors
Distributors/Supplier also needs to make a profit on items they offer to retailers to sell
Retailer pays a dealer price to distributor/supplier and needs to make a profit

All the above also have overheads staff wages/utility bills to pay/insurance/rent on shops/bulidings costs etc etc
If a business don't make a profit it won't cover those overheads which why many business ceases trading

Blu-ray disc releases do not have a high profit margin compared some other products
Retailers need to sell a decent amount of stock at full retail price to make a profit
Some retailers who have unsold stock often end up selling at a loss to get rid of stock as in below cost price

If we're not talking about who paid who who paid who, but initial production costs, then it's a ripoff.
It costs $1 at most to replicate 1 disc, $2 for a booklet, 10 cents for the cards, and 50 cents to manufacture that Chinese Keychain, so 5 bucks at most for everything, with the box - all that considering a mass production of, say 10,000 copies.
Then the studio decides how much it wants for its 'intellectual property', which shouldn't be more, than what they charge for purchase of a streaming digital copy, which is $10-15 for a new title. That's about $20. Add transportation, storage, in bulk, and I don't think it's reasonable to ask for more than $30 (£22), especially if they want to sell a lot, and not kill the physical media market.
So 'they' either do want to kill it, or they consider us whole lot as suckers.
