    Ugh, I'm really conflicted on this one.

    Yes: Gun, Hammer
    Maybe: Launchers
    No: Head, Sword, Flag, Poster

    ffffffffffff...

    I thought the hammer was the flag: optional combinations are 1 giant hammer, 2 smaller hammers or a flag pole.

    Or is this not correct?

    I have a feeling you're correct; I was just going by the BBTS listing.

    I was really liking this except for the head... But it's a 30-35 dollar like, not a nearly 60 dollar one.

    Well, the price is definitely a put off. Definitely going to wait to see what the rest of the kit ends up turning out like before plunking anything down.

    I've already got a sweet set of missiles racks coming from another source... so... yeah. We shall see.

    Heh. I'll bite... I was actually on the fence about this set until I saw the Magnus Hammer. That's just too awesome to pass up... and by all intents and purposes it's going to have a nice set of accessories to add to CC besides (though, I really don't think the head is necessary, but oh well...).

    Strangely, it was at $56.99 and now is at $58.99. I put a "just in case" preorder at $56.99 and the price has not changed in my account... Even stranger, I have not received any news credits yet :(

    You are correct but they are counting the literal flag itself as an extra item even though toy need the hammer/pole to use it

    Glad I got my pre-order in before then too...

    Still waiting to see final pics of the hammers before I decide if I cancel or not. ~$60 is a little steep for this unless those are awesome!

    Is anyone interested in some, but not all, of the set? Here is what I am willing to do if some of you want to split one with me. All I want to do is work this out so that I have very little in the pieces I need, while preventing others from buying the whole set if they don't want to. Just shoot me a PM if you are interested.

    Shoulder cannon x2 $20
    Sword $15
    Combine war hammer and flag $20
    poster $2

    Yeah, same here. Might have been a typo on their part and, based on past experiences, they won't change your preorder as the price being listed like that was their fault. Of course, it's only the difference of a couple of dollars.

    $60 seems a little on the high side for this set, but the sword and the Magnus Hammer really swayed me into buying this. I think I'm addicted to melee weapons for my Transformers...
