I don't think the main line will go up any time soon. Like Hasbro has been calling this line it is line a Special Edition line for the 10th anniversary. It's kinda like the Mattel Multiverse Premium line with the TV Flash and Val Kilmer's Batman. They are darer then the regular line. 
 
Also the line is more expensive for several reason not just the box (except for one aspect which I'll get into in a bit). Like people have been saying there is the face printing tech which make the figure 10 times better then the faces on the regular line (just look at the recent Cap from the Infinity line).
 
Second while some, not all, use older molds for the figures, most are brand use extremely detail builds of the figure you usually wouldn't find in the regular line. Just look at say at the Ant-man from the 2-pack and compare it to the one from the original Ant-man series. Uses some parts from that figure but with some better parts. Now look at all the brand new figures like Red Skull (and Hydra Soildiers), Ronan, Yellowjacket, Crossbone, Trevorin, Pepper Pott and even the Mark VII Iron Man are all brand new sculpts. So alot of that extra money is going to pay for all the brand new and alot of the time, exclusive to that figure sculpts that they might not ever use anymore.
 
Thirdly, the Box itself is unique with the moral being a extra addition to the line. Not only that but alot of the set come with a good bit of accessories. From Red Skull being able to be a number of Hydra soldier to Cap coming with an Alternate head to Iron Man with his repulsar blast, these are included in these set as standard, unlike the main line where we might be lucky to get any accessories that is not the BAF.
 
Finally and probably my biggest point, this line is an Adult Collectors line. Now before anyone gets onto me about it, yes the main line is a adult collectors line however it is also marketed toward kids as well. Hell the BAF part is something marketed toward kids as well. However this is a line that seem to be marketed toward Adult collectors exclusively. Do you think a child would want a MCU Red Skull or Yellowjacket? not really as they are currently not in the most recent movie. Most Adult have asked for those figure and Hasbro is making it for them not the kids. Thus the reason for the fancy boxes to separate it from the main line. 
 
Now like Mako said, The price of ML will eventually go up but it won't be because of this line but instead the rising price of oil and stuff.

Well said! 100% agree

Guys. If I see one more thread being filled with this MCU vs comic, peg clogging or the likes the post will be deleted. Stick to what the thread is about please.

Sorry if this seems harsh but it's getting to the point where almost every thread Is being filled with it. We don't mind discussions about it but stop bringing it up in every thread

Lol. Doesn't every thread break down to an MCU vs. Comic all out throwdown? I was thinking the same thing. It was actually probably my fault, but back on subject.

I was also thinking maybe we might also unveil, at least verbally, the next set of Riders figures. I'm thinking the first set tested well enough we might be getting at least 2 waves this year if not 3. I know at least Logan and Captain America will get one. Also be ready. That Spider cycle is coming.
I hope there is some kind of announcement too
