    I'm actually relieved it's so expensive -- I can easily ignore it since it's outside of my acceptable price range...

    Shame it's non-transforming. Great sculpt though.

    Gonna have to pass. Price is just way way too much for the size. Good luck to those who purchase it.

    If Drift is $290, then Tarn\'ll be $300-$320. >.<
    So much for my hopes of getting Tarn.

    No need to spend $300.00 for a super accurate figure that looked like he stepped off the page :D

    Yikes, that price...I'm perfectly happy with my generations Drift. Now, if it was a MTMTE/LL Drift, and was taller, I'd definitely consider since I have yet to see a 3P come out with one.

    I mean he's only 0.3 mm taller than sxs hot flame, and he's made of a lot of diecast I think? I remember seeing this guy at tfcon, the finish looked beautiful with the right height. I think if I want to have my s1 mtmte characters, I gotta go the nick roche design, which his designs are much smoother and less articulated than milne's art. Mmc seems to go for s2 design and I seem to like the more s1 route. I know I can buy ft's omega supreme for $50 more, but this seems to be more of a mp-36 purchase, I'll buy it because it has beautiful paint apps, with led's in it and relvotech type of articulation, and HE HAS LOSTSO DIECAST!! I might not consider the tarn statue, since I do find kultur to be a walking masterpiece who won't shut up on how easy his transformation.

    < Looks over at her Takara United Drift and SG Drift >

    Yup, I'm good. I don't need to spend 300 dollars on an eight inch gundam Drift.

    Hey Takara, I wouldn't mind an IDW inspired MP Drift. Hell, I wouldn't mind an MPM Drift either.

    I didn't mind the lack of transformation. I didn't mind the scale.

    But that pricetag. OH VECTOR SIGMA, WHY?!

    ...Seriously. My Kidlogic Bumblebee has multiple colour-switching LEDs, interchangable parts and faces, sound effects, tons of accessories, and cost me under $100. At full retail he's under $200. Even with all the fancy features, there's no way Drift is worth that much. I'm still tempted; MMC is taking so long and we barely have any colour photos. I actually like his faces and aesthetic better than MMC Beta. But it's hard to justify when that money could buy an entire 3P Overlord.

    The price is a deal breaker. MMC is releasing Beta soon, who not only transforms, but also has the IDW aesthetics. He probably will go for 90$ or so. This FT drift is beautiful, but the price is too much.

    Kultur is nice 'n' all but i want an official Tarn that won't cost me an arm and a leg. (Although, after checking; Kultur is $119.99 on BBTS which is £91.64 according to Google but that's before shipping which will probably be £20-£30 therefore putting him back up to the same price as in the US)
    I only get £100 a fortnight and i'd rather spend that on 4-5 HG Gundam kits than wait 2 weeks for my next payment to get a single figure.
    It's why i don't own many 3P TF figures and with Brexit they're only going to get more expensive to import.
    Even Hasbro's offerings are hiking up the prices; Deluxes were £10 before CW/AOE, now they're £25 according to the latest Argos catalogue! It's ridiculous! Lackluster quality for over twice the price!
    The same goes for the Megazords in recent Power Rangers toylines (Samurai-onwards) where the US figures are borderline Knock-Offs of the Japanese releases.
    The Lion Fortress Zord is £120 at Argos and i can get the significantly better quality Japanese version on Amazon, eBay or BBTS for around the same price or slightly more. Granted, Lion Ha-Oh is a bad example as it's just a humongus expensive Brick that's sole purpose is for another Megazord to sit/stand in it ala Titanus from MMPR so i have little space/need for it.
    The space/price problem is also why i have none of the three Titan Class figures. (outside of the other problems they have: Too lanky/not the FOC design/big for big-ness' sake for Metroplex, 'Plex in Fort Max cosplay/Encore is better for Fortress Maximus and Floppy chest-door/scary hip-joints/might as well get the Platinum Edition for Trypticon.)

    MMC Carnifex is $185 on TFSource:
    Mastermind Creations - R-17 - Carnifex
    So yeah, Carnifex/Overlord is much more worth that price range.

    You could literally get Carnifex AND Beta for the price of one of these. :D

    The preorders are up at the US stores. Does anyone know if this will be available through Japanese retailers?
