    $115? Ouch! I still will get it though even though it should be priced closer to the Protector armor.

    Well, that priced me out. Looks like I'll have to settle with my RID Black Convoy.

    I think I may just skip this one. Its more than I'm willing to pay to upgrade G2 Prime

    If Has/Tak ever get around to doing a Scourge repaint of RTS G2 Prime and these guys follow suit with their trailer, then I'd be extremely tempted.

    Good God, $115? That's kinda way more than I was expecting.

    I'm still gonna get it, though.

    I was really expecting this to be no more than 60. It doesn't do as much as the rodimus trailer or I'd be all for that price range. Think I'll pass on this. Might have to pass on their devy if they overshoot the price aswell.

    Where's $115 coming from? It's currently listed as 900 HKD, which is approximately 77 USD.

    -edit-

    Incorrect! 900 HKD is indeed ~115 USD.

    Oh and this is $115 HK price so by the time it hits BBTS it shoudl be the low low price of $135. Because you know shipping to BBTS costs a ton and they have over head and rent and employees and whatever BS excuse people use to justify those crazy mark ups.

    Damn, That's pretty expensive for that trailor to upgrade a deluxe. Not sure if I'm still in for this or not.

    I blame fansproject. Its their fault for being able to get us 3rd party product (of amazing quality) for so cheap.

    ......you know, if this costs more than City Commander/Protector, I don't think I can justify it to myself, much as I like the design of the trailer.

    And I'm someone who's going all-in on Hercules.

    I once thought that this project was done by Fansproject, so I rushed out to buy a G2 Prime. Now I'm not so sure I want this upgrade, especially with such a killer price.

    Is BBTS supposed to eat the cost of overhead, rent, and employee wages and conduct business at a loss?

    or maybe they should not exist at all, since they are "price-gouging", according to one deranged poster?


    Why do you persist in this, when you yourself admitted you were just posting to start shit, with your anti-big business rhetoric?

    Tell us what you do for a living to make you so qualified to be a pervasive voice in discussing the economics of online toy sales.

    If only we have random posters with asian connections to hook each and every one of us up with these products at manufacturer cost with no markup at all.

    Maybe transbot can give up posting, move to asia, do some housecleaning for TFC/FP/MakeToy/PerfectEffect/Igear, then run a charity toy service exclusively for TFW2005. Oh, for shame that we are being taken advantage of by the big BAD toy companies.

    QFT. It's like "How dare any other company operate at a profit because Fansproject opts to run at a significantly lower margin".
    Agreed. If it were an entire figure, it'd be different, but as it stands... I don't like the figure enough to upgrade it for that much.
