    Wow. It would actually ge cheaper to buy the figures that their made from and kitbash them into them. I might do this for Lazerbeak, but I would then get the Energon Ravage and do a G1 paint job on him too. Peace out.

    That is steep, but acceptable given the remold and size of th CD Red Alert mold (big for an Ultra).
    that is somewhere between ridiculous and idiotic.

    Okay..so since I already have the box set and (evidently Tigatron) freebie lined up, who wants to pick up the Megs/Waspinator for me? :D  Kinda meh on Laserbeak/Buzzsaw.

    And this is why I didn't want Botcon in the hand it is in now, it's the same entirely too steep pricing that plagues the Joe Con

    You realize that you get both Waspinator AND Megatron together for that price, yes? t may be a little steep, but they're not trying to charge $95 just for Waspinator.

    And it's STILL too damned expensive. Way overpriced, regardless of the limited production run.

    Not meaning to be picky, but could we please stop spelling Laserbeak with a "z"? Unless we're talking about Beast Wars Lazorbeak, the character and its toys are spelled with "s". :) 

    (same way anyything other than RiD and Armada Mini-Con Skid-Z is "Skids", not "Skidz")

    Really the prices aren't too bad and are in line with them from last year. The two basics of the insecticons went for about $45, just like the divebombs this year. Last year a basic and deluxe sold for about $65 and this year for $30 more you get an ultra instead of a deluxe. I don't see how you could expect these to be cheaper than last year. Now if you thought they were too expensive last year, there's nothing else I can do to change that.
