Frankly, the figures sound quite inexpensive to me. I looked into a rapid prototyper a few years ago, it was $25,000 then, it hadn't dropped much in the last couple years either. This machine sounds like it might be a custom unit, which could get very expensive, then there's the custom software too. Then it sounds like you have artists hand painting them. Even if it's called rapid prototyping, it can be quite slow, as mentioned.

The figure I mentioned was for a rapid prototyper that couldn't add color - just pale / clear and making an object out of ABS. Still, those are far from the only expenses involved in making this though.
