    Looks pretty nice, but Impossible Toys has a pretty bad track record with transforming items so far, so wait-and-see for me.

    That would be some spendy troop building. Just not an important enough character to warrant that amount of money for me personally.

    This. Its a troop building thing. They should have aimed for 30-40. Sometime you need to make your profit selling bulk not per piece. This thing would fly at 30.

    I'm not saying they are overcharging, but you need to consider sale price before venturing in to a project. IT has been around too long to be such a bad company.

    If this was FP it would be around 50. People adore FP not only for who they are but WHAT THEY CHARGE.

    The difference is FP and Igear have proven themselves worthy of my money by making outstanding toys. Once IP proves they can make a good toy consistently then I will buy from them. After seeing their Arcee figure I do not feel comfortable pre-ordering from them.

    They have yet to evolve and produce items to compete with the rest of the third party companies. Their prices are amongst the worst.

    If they were top notch all of their items would not be sold at clearance prices.

    Meh, at those prices I see those things staying in stock for a LONG time. As stated they're troop builders and should've been priced as such. *shrug*

    Not knowing the size and other details, your logic doesn't work about the cheaper pricing. To even get it down to $30-$40, they would need to produce 5000 units or more. Which means retailers would be ordering tons. Impossible always makes runs in smaller batches compared to other 3rd party groups.

    The fact is, FP would be charging $90 for this item through retailers, at the least. I definitely can say that confidently.

    Well unless you know something we dont what size is this and why is $80 too much? I see FP Warbot selling for like $110 @ BBTS, Also im not sure if your aware but when BBTS reduces prices it shows up as clearence even though its not and that you can confirm.There is way to many fans that just say things for the sake of saying them and as you said FP and Igears have proven them selves but how many crappy things did Igear make before?I am giving this a chance.

    Your right about the clearance thing on BBTS. It does not mean the store is actually putting something on clearance, its just their "sales" term. Alot of the times IT stuff was on clearance, was actually just a sale, not a clear out. Actually clearance would mean their would be no restock.
