No one has to buy them, they're just an option. Some people like bling and will pay for it. For those that don't care for bling, the plastic ones are there. Plus they're lighter.

For the power and quality that the servos punch in such a small package, I don't think the price is unreasonable. Take a look at what the guys in the glider scene pay for specialized super small servos (just like what the M1 uses). It gets crazy. From what I heard, the servos were one of the most difficult parts of designing the M1. They wanted to get them right the first time. R&D is expensive.
