    You ar in for a sticker shock. I was thinking this the other day and I'm amazed at how much plastic you end up with for all that money. I almost bought the birds but no way now.

    70 for FR
    60 for laserbeak and buzz
    ninja and bat are 70
    shadow warrior with pck 50
    taw god sword for all 4 280

    I think there is more...

    Not to mention $90-$100 for Ultimate form so you can get Ejector, Rewinder, Sun, Moon, and City Commander Backpack.

    I'd say $400-$500, when you factor in shipping.

    just to compare

    89 for CC when it came out
    108 for munitioner stuff
    warbot 84
    sidearm 10
    protector 89
    crossfire 45 = 425

    pound for pound, you get more with FP.

    You could probably make your own Perfect Effect figures by attaching ball joints to Legos

    Truth. Even though I'm loving PE lately.

    In fact, third party wise, FP's been on my bottom lately. IGear's actually been the one that's standout.

    c'mon dude...

    My main ones are f and r, scouting force, ultimate, ninja and bat. Do you think they are worth it?

    I think they all look good. But they are soo small for what you pay for. Worth it to me, no. To others maybe. I dont have a surplus of money for TFs so I have to pick and choose.

    IIRC FP doesn't operate at a profit, so that's how they keep prices low.

    PE-11 is my first experience with PE, and I have Munitioner/Explorer from FP. I like PE-11 better. Granted, I didn't pay full retail for it, but I still think it's fantastically done. Munitioner/Explorer are alright, too, but PE-11 has that micro charm about it.
