    We don't know yet.

    As for cheap ass, you're talking about a year to save 80-90 dollars.

    Although i suppose there is the possibility that Amazon will reduce it a bit.....

    So, does anyone here still think Hasbro's SDCC Bruticus price is justified?

    Retail sales aren't what Hasbro want. They look at us paying good money for third party, Takara items, and decide they want a piece of that too.

    In their minds it's justification enough, and they're probably going to do more of it in future, til people vote with their wallets.

    I would be all over the preorder, but I have finally decided that I just can't get into this Bruticus or a lot of the upcoming stuff. Course I bought a Takara Jetwing a couple months ago for $180ish. Ah well.

    Edit: Since I have Jetwing, I am hoping for the other Takara Leader Class Optimus with the shield to be a Costco exclusive. Come on Costco.

    I think its worth the SDCC asking price, but I did pre-order this Amazon just in case I can't score a SDCC set while I am there. Added Jetwing prime to my wishlist...I'd rather wait to see pics before jumping on that one. And even then its not on my priority list.

    Thanks for the heads up OP.

    Preordered G2 Dudicus as if my life depended on it

    Edit: Is there an estimated delivery date at all? I'm not seeing one.

    Threw down a pre-order on Bruticus. I want him for my G2-classics if nothing else. Might still get the mainline release for my WfC/FoC shelf, or the SDCC one if I somehow come into lots of money.

    Cheaper than local retail, and if you really don't like it, i think you'll have no trouble offloading it.

    And you need more Swindle.

    This works out to $12 for each figure for Bruticus. That's a steal, especially considering you also get free shipping and no tax (and no gas looking for them).
