THIS IS AN EX-PARROT! wait, no, that's not what I'm upset about.... What I'm upset about is something that I think has gotten out of hand in my own personal opinion. That is the price of the Transformers Classics Target Exclusive Boxed Set 2 pack "The Battle for Autobot City" which contains the Voyager repaint of Classics Optimus Prime as Autobot City Commander Ultra Magnus, and the Deluxe repaint of Classics Starscream as Skywarp. Why am I so upset you ask? Well, it's simple really. Ultra Magnus and Skywarp are a voyager ($20 figure), and a deluxe ($10) packed together for a MSRP of $19.99 +tax. Breaking it down that equals out to 66% of what those molds would cost normally, or $10 each. Now considering that this set was exclusive to Target stores, I can see how the price would go up just a little, like Devastator for Wal-mart, however lately I've seen some outrageous and unfair price hikes for these figures. I have been offered upwards of $45.00 for skywarp, loose, no instructions, no box, no ultra magnus. I have also been offered upwards of $65.00 for Ultra Magnus, loose, no instructions, no box, no skywarp. I have to say WTF?!?!?! Now I know about the recently released "Commander Armor" sets for the voyager figure, but those are not necessary for the Ultra Magnus figure. It especially should not reflect the price of the Ultra Magnus figure IF YOU DON'T EVEN HAVE THE ARMOR TO GO WITH THE MAGNUS THAT YOU'RE SELLING! That would be like me selling a G1 Omega Supreme MIB without Arms and Legs, and charging $300.00 just because you can get arms and legs from an encore. I personally don't think that it's fair to hike the price on these figures because of the armor, unless you 1. HAVE the armor in your posession, and 2. Are selling the Armor WITH the ultra magnus figure. And 3. If you don't have the skywarp with the magnus, then the set is incomplete and should be reflected in the price. Lastly, where skywarp is concerned. I understand how everyone is trying to get the seekers together as a set along with the games of deception set, and that he's exclusive to target, but by himself, he shouldn't cost all that much. It's been a little under 2 years now since this 2pack was released, and a little less than that since the Games of Deception pack. So all that in consideration, Skywarp really shouldn't fetch more than $15-$20 tops (without Magnus). Asking $45.00 is way out of line, heck for that I could get a decent conditioned vintage, or get the encore or TRU CSIV Reissues. So in conclusion, I just want to say to all of you who charge way more than is necessary for Ultra Magnus, for Skywarp, or for any other Transformer, stop, please. Think about how much it should really cost, how much you paid for it, how much it is worth, how much it was sold for, and consider all of those into a fair price. And please, PLEASE don't charge rediculous prices for one figure without the other figure (unless as stated earlier with the armor, or with the other seekers). It is a 2pack afterall. I would like to thank all of you who have taken the time to read through my great wall of text. Please, I do not mean to start a flamefest, so please keep discussion civil and productive. Otherwise, please share your 2 cents on this, or other similar pricing situations.
