    What would be funny is if they kept the price for all of them except the last one, who would cost five times as much. But I don't think they would be such dickheads.

    Also the toy discussion forum should be renamed to "TF Club Not-devy discussion. You can talk about other toys maybe."

    I totally think they should do this, especially since they're starting the first one off at $100. :lol

    I could have sworn a few years ago hasbro stated at one of the botcon panels that they will crack down on 3rd party firgures if they surpassed $100.
    They are at the tip if true.So i doubt they would do that.
    But im constantly medicated so take what i say with a grain of salt.

    my TF budget is FULLY concentrated on this. if tak/bro reads this yes i won't be buying your toys for awhile. i'd even pass on any wreck-gars i see on the road.

    price per bot should be the same or less. nothing higher.

    I don't think they will but it could happen. If this is as far as TFC wants to go as a company they will, if they do have furture TFs in mind they won't dare. They will lose a ton of f
    potential buyers...burn me once sure I'm in for the ride once I am half was through it. But, I won't be getting on the ride a second time to get burned again.

    Funny thing is is that we got a price range. I always took it to mean some figures will be more than others. This is fine cuz I can see the dumptruck costing more to manufature, it is bigger and bulkier and has more engineering. But once people see the higher price they will accuse TFC of price gouging. As I said this next year is going to be the most drama filled year ever with project Hercules.

    I'll stick around depending how stupid TFC gets with pricing (which I doubt they will)

    We have Hasbro insiders, Takara insiders, iGear insiders, FP insider but no TFC or PE insiders... I am willin gto take on the role of TFC and PE insider....so start pming me TFC and PE lol.

    why would they change the price? Retail selling doesn't leave a lot of room to be dickheads just for lulz. If they're smart enough to design a transforming combiner, they're intelligent enough to realize the consequences of manufacturing something priced too high to sell.

    Really depends how much and when they raised the price but I would for sure boycott their products for the future.

    No. They won't. That's like them releasing their Reflector set separately and selling 2 of them for £1 and the final one for £70. And no, I woulsn't bail on the set either, there's no point on giving up on something I've already started.

    this. but not a dollar more on my part. already this thing is too expensive.

    for a guy who does not normally entertain 3rd party products, i'm adamant about not paying a higher price at each release.

    It's possible if cost factors increase between now and then, but it'd be business suicide for any future projects to do it arbitrarily.

    I think each figure may vary a few dollars. I voted yes because if the second figure goes up 10 and the next 10 more, etc... i'll sell off the the ones i own and be done with it.

    NO and it would be the end of third party purchases for me. It would'nt be TFclub but the online retailers that would do this.

    you'd be surprised what these companies would do. I dont know automation but I would'nt put it past toyarena, tfsource and maybe even BBTS.

    I suppose it's possible one of them might be more expensive if it comes with the the combiner handgun and chest shield. but i'm hoping the accessories will be spread across them all as needed. Perhaps the Wing chest accessory comes with Not-Bonecrusher as he might be a little smaller ?

    Someone did point out though that they chest shield could have been made out of the dump trucks trailer bed - but they didn't design it that way so it looks like it will have to be an extra part if he has a chest plate at all (I'm guessing he does as he has the linkages for a chest plate on his torso area).
