just like movies...actors are sensationalized to promote the movie they are in....
That, and low volume. Even the 5534 would be un-affordable if they would only sell a few 1000 per year.

a japanese friend of mine said than :

"The silk thread is made by 30 years old Virgin Muses whom only eat Kobe beef, then are blessed in Greece after a Master in Harp playing for a better mature product! Education costs a lot ! Some even say than the oaps are brushed with beers while leads are sharpened by Fugu cooker Masters !

But mostly: due to a crisis to find ethiopian eunuchs for the quality control with the virgins production benchs, the prices as the panties have been soaring"

I believe him as he stoped to drink sake !
