I like this design. I'm not so sure the scale with fit in with the rest of my collection.
Speak with your wallets if you think the price is too high.
I know I am, and I wanted most of these new IF guys.
That's 50$ more than I am willing to spend on this 7" figure. Ok moving on.
Yeah the price on this is way too outrageous. Look at the trouble Hulkie had moving and that was only $150.
Everyone wants a big ass slice of the pie, but the damn pie is only so big. Way too much product out there anymore. You'd think the prices would start to drop....
It will be ok zfarsh, it will be ok, this will be in a long while anyways, so you got plenty of time to relax and enjoy life and once it is out, or a few weeks after, check out ebay, then see if you still want this or not. And same for Shockwave and Starscream which I also REALLY wanted, but will try to get at least one of them. Still pissed i cant get Elita 1 on it's own and price of Nightbird is jacked up so much that make them hard passes, but oh well, i got all the MMC / Hasbro ones anyways. And yea, it really sux that DX-9 Hulkie was so much less.
Just getting Sixshot once that is out, and small / slow baby steps afterwards.
Plastic crack addiction is a real b*tch, and once the dealers start getting greedy it makes it even worse.
So this guy is being sold as three sets. The leg guys, the arm guys and onslaught for $55 each. So $165. Imo very nice price.
It's 210 $, not 165 $, at least not at the NA sites. So it's 70 usd each, vs55$. Where did you find him at 165 USD (or 55$/ea)?
I like these, but I wilk wait for cheaper ebay prices or BF deals. F BBTS (and other NA etailers) and their ridiculous markups.
Ugh, this has to be one of the worst 3P politics offenses ever. There's a reason why the straight from China prices are astronomically cheaper.
I would have to refresh myself but I know that there are choke points in 3P Transformer distribution, namely people who tell companies that they will sell all their stock to them or it will never see the light of day. After acquiring the stock, they jack the price up and send it over to American suppliers, who in turn jacl their prices up as well. It's the reason why Robot Kingdom has "great" pricing but they don't carry Fansproject products.
It's a huge to-do, cash grab, pro-chinese seller construct. It sucks for local sellers. I've tried to stick with even TCP up until now but the pricing is just so different that I have to go with the straight from China method ~_~ Oh the times, how they change.
It's definitely a shame as these all look so damn good.
Tony has each set listed for 55. So I guess usual NA tax.
I'll probably get these from china. Just gotta be patient and not automatically give in to NA retailer prices.
Hopefully the NA retailers will pick up on this and lower their prices.
Good thing is since IF's stuff is so small and light and uses basic packaging and comes in very efficiently sized boxes too they're stuff is super cheap to ship world wide from china. I've never not ordered their figures with other figures for this reason. Also kinda funny that their Night Assassin similarly got a not insignificant price bump at certain NA retailers, she literally almost doubled in price going from her china rrp of $25 to $40 at BBTS.
Yeah no way I am paying NA retailers prices. Not sure why it's so difficult to implement uniform pricing across the globe. MMC and MT have done it. It just makes everything easier. If prices are the same everywhere, shipping alone will prevent most people in NA from getting these things overseas.
Yikes, the price on these is a lot higher than I'd expected. Definitely puts a damper on my enthusiasm. On the upside, though, their Dai Atlas is a lot cheaper than I'd anticipated.
GOTTA LOVE TONY!!! the dude has it up before RK have it on their site, now the waiting game on if they can deliver it in the 2nd quarter, id say they can do it.
Lol its a combiner off course its going to cost more than the dinobots plus if you had gotten the black friday deal it would have been cheaper right ?
Bruticus is my favorite combiner, I like Iron Factory and I like this thing, but I don't $200+ like it. Guess I'll pick this one up during Black Friday Sales 2017.
Okay, so this set of preorders was what enticed me to dive into IF, but those prices, man...
Who is this Tony, though?
