    It's about time that CrazyDevy recognized they are freaking insane. I was looking at pimping my G1 Predaking and did a quick cost out. The complete CD set would be $270! Are you kidding me!

    Does it look great all done, hell YES. Is it worth the price for what you get? HELL NO!

    I mean, at this point you can get Ratchet and Ironhide which are no joke original figures then something else for that price. Or you could get MMC cyclops and OP for that much. I can go on and on. But the thing that stands out the most is that the Green Giant is almost the same price.

    At this point that is ridiculous. Personally I am going to have to wait for someone else to release an affordable set. I mean I don't normally complain about third party prices, but if you can defend CD prices, your pulling shit out of your ass, especially if your forced to compare them to MMC, iGear and FP.

    Seems like the old school 3rd Party groups like IT and CD think they still can get away with their pricing.

    How did you not know that CrazyDevy is synonymous for "overpriced combiner junk"?

    I hope the Crazy Devy stuff gets knocked off, then I can buy some :) 

    Hard to justify prices on sets that cost more than the figures they go on.

    But hey, u have stupid people who will and by the way, keep raping them if they keep coming back.

    haha, I did the same thing a while back. I scoffed at the idea of spending that much on add ons. As pointed out, you can probably pay off a chunk of the MMC one coming out. I do recall someone on here had designed some leg extensions for G1 Predaking and it looked promising. Not sure if it got made or what.

    Well, to be fair, if you want to upgrade your G1 combiners, they're pretty much the only game in town. I'm guessing there's someone out there who would rather own an upgraded Predaking than a Green Giant and are willing to pay for the privilege. I'm not one of those people, I don't collect G1 at all, but they have to be out there. The fact that CD's had more releases than any other third party suggests that there's more than a few.

    When you get right down to it, darn near everything we buy is a "you paid WHAT for that?" situation to anyone who doesn't collect. It's just a matter of taste.

    For the most part, I agree about CrazyDevy stuff, but no one is obliged to buy anything from them, so the complaints about price isn't really valid, it just indicates that you actually want the stuff, but don't want to pay the price.

    I bought some expensive pieces from them, because I really liked what they did to Predaking (wings and cannons). Worth it? To me yes, I love the new look. Objectively worth it? Nah, it's just some small non-complex pieces of plastic. As long as I want it enough though, I have no problem paying the price.

    I dont judge those who buy this stuff, as I myself own a complete CD Devastator. However, back then everything third party was expensive. Now a days, there are too many items that the money is better spent on. I mean the thing looks great all done and I do want it, but it is $270 and the thighs arent even part of the set yet.

    CrazyDevy is just like a pan handler. ...Don't get mad at them. Get mad at the people who give them money and allow them to exist.

    Why hasn't this happened yet? So many KOs out there no one even attempted to KO CD stuff?
