    Thank you for sharing all of you pics and info across numerous threads on these boards. I can't get enough of these figures and I would consider selling my left kidney to get one!!

    I strongly recommend getting one now. I feel like this may be your last chance to get one. So if you can, get the money for it. Once it goes out of stock, it may cost as much as your kidney.

    Realistically the two best things that FP ever did was the City Commander and the Crossfire 2 set. Look at the price of the City Commander set, and you will see where Crossfire is heading.

    Now, also keep in mind that it is extremely unlikely that any more crossfires 2 will ever be made again, consider the new repaints. I could be wrong on this, but Venskta already said that FP won't be making any more City Commanders, so I can see the same being said for this pretty soon.

    To the OP. the FP Crossfire-02 set IS as awesome as you say. I've heard a couple of negative things about it (mostly regarding QC) but mine, and from what I've read, many others do not suffer from any issues.

    What these guys do to the Energon combiner falls just a little short of a miracle.

    I would recommend that you save up your money and get this guy. Skip the DOTM figures if you have to because those will only fall in price.

    If you think the pics make this guy look awesome you should see one and handle one in person.

    I have nothing but good things to say about this set so I pray that you will find the means to buy this figure in the near future.

    If not, and I assume you are one of the younger fans...We all need grails and this guy will be yours. Never lose hope, getting a job and having some extra funds does wonders for a collection.

    Thanx

    I didn't get the whole set of figures because I don't really care for the cybertron style figures. I just have them with my Classic Onslaught.

    buy munitioner & explorer while you still can.

    you can piecemeal brut eventually down the line buying a part here and there, if you buy munitioner and explorer now. once munitioner & explorer are gone the game changes. spend the $110 and get them while you can, they're quite good figures on their own as well.

    I believe Fansproject also said they were basically done with the City Commander mold way back when they did the second run and Venskta was just re-confirming. No similar notes on Bruticus yet.

    I'm not lucky. It's not like they're rare. I just work, and spend my spending cash on what I want like anyonee else. In fact, I'm getting rid of two of them and just keeping one, because that right there will be money to almost pay off TFclub Not-devy.

    It's a nice toy, but it gets "normal" really quick and more than one is a waste of money.

    I'm not a younger fan. I'm a family man with two kids and I have a very limited budget to buy items such as Explorer and Munitioner. With that said, I compliment all of you who own one and have posted resources on this website.

    Because of posts in this thread I decided to update my trade thread into a sell thread so hopefully I can make the money to order myself these badboys.

    Here is a link to my thread. Take a look and please help me make the money I need to order these two wonderful figures:

    I would recommend you hold onto them until the BBTS and TFSource stuff sells out. Can almost guarantee a big price jump like 3 months after that happens.

    Sorry about the assumption, I did not intend to offend.

    A family man with two kids makes it hard to get extra cash to spend on the hobby, let alone a high end figure such as these.

    I do wish you the best of luck and I will say this. If and when you do get these guys, any ligitimate way of obtaining them will be forgotten. These guys really are a spot light piece in any collection.

    Haha, if Grim is so nice to help me with:

    - Windcharger
    - MP Thundercracker

    It would be greatly appreciated. LOL. MP Thundercracker is impossible to get below $200 now a days. WTH?!

    TJ and Grim = Care Squad ("We gotcha back" - that's our slogan).

    But jokes aside, hit me up.
