Marko, while it's true that little Vampirella kit draws big bucks, I think it's probably more sentimental value & the collectability that drives the price.
I have 2 other Vampi kits in resin that are way better representations of the character than that old Aurora model (much larger scales too). I think for female figure kits in particular, you have to recognize the limitations of the available mediums. Styrene isn't the best choice for this kind of kit. The pose is limited by the constraints of the tooling process. Resin allows for much greater range of movement in the pose and far fewer seams (both big advantages if you're modelling the female form).
I'm not saying styrene kits wouldn't sell, I just believe that between the two, the resin kits would always look better.
Just my 2 cents...
