    $100 for a combiner isn't high, That's actually mid-range. Thats actually less than what I paid for my G1 Devastator

    Do you have some new info that confirms this price? If not, why not have added this to the other thread about the SDCC Bruticus price?

    I'm just saying its cheaper to buy it in retail. But they probably intentionally released the fugly colors in retail to make a quick buck, knowing people would want the G1 colors.

    Here is the proof for everyone.

    Idle Hands: San Diego Comic-Con 2012 : Hasbro's Exclusives

    I imagine this price will really throw off some people from buying this set. Which votes will for me. But I was still expecting him to be $59.99, not $99.99. Sucks that most people won't be able to afford the game accurate version. Really, Hasbro?

    Well 5 deluxe figures at retail would be at least $60 so a little more for the exclusivity isn't too crazy.

    Is Onslaught going to be a deluxe or I forgot.

    Yeah it's a lot of money but considering that deluxes are like $15 each it's like a $25 premium. And seeing as how the Terrorcon CJ is $25, it's almost a bargain.

    At least I'm sure that's what Hasbro is thinking.

    Well, even if the figures are 14.99, shouldn't we be counting tax, gas, etc? In other words, wouldn't the separate ones be like 17 or 18 after other expenses considered?

    I remember the ones at botcon being marked at a retail price of 14.99. So with tax at retail five deluxes would cost around $80.

    $20. For the pretty box.

    $100 is about what I was expecting. My big want is still the Shockwave Hisstank. If I'm able to get the Bruticus on HTS that would be cool. We'll see how the tides of the internets and my bank account favor me that day.

    I believe they're all deluxes, yes.

    I guess at least this'll save me from giving scalpers business, if they're already $100, and most people can't afford that, there's no way they'll be able to sell for the higher markups that they'll likely do.
