Off topic, I freaking hate Speedpak shipping from China....just thought I'd mention it...
Yea, it’s the only reason I went ahead and preordered them, now to track down one of the first sets
I'll wait and see if @ShowZStore will match the price before deciding.
I got the other two Seeker sets from there, so hopefully I can do the same with this new set.
Admittedly I’ve been on a preorder spree the last two days, snagged lg-ex big powered and siege wave 1 deluxes and battlemasters yesterday, just keeping it going haha
Pre-orders for wave one Siege figures have started popping up?
i grabbed them from the midtown comics website, theyve had them for awhile now
Are the Hasbruh figures all going up in price? I need Cog and Brunt but, I ain’t paying $20 for them.
Yeah, Deluxes are $20 apiece now.
Yes, that is the new retail price, which if you look at similarly sized action figures from competing toylines it’s actually still a pretty reasonable price and still less than an autobot car was in 1984 when adjusted for inflation ($10 in 1984 is roughly equivalent to $25 in 2018)
I’ll stick with 3P. 84 cars had diecast, and were worth it.
84 cars were also smaller with little to no articulation just saying
I guess MFT figures s bad ass like Huffer didn’t need a weapon since he’s got those knuckle dusters on his fists.
Huffer is the ultimate weapon...
And had diecast metal, rubber tires, chrome accessories, decals, and better constructed than most toys from the last two decades.
Thank you for the pictures the desk collection looks great. It gives me a little something to think about as far as huffer goes. I'm still probably going to grab him he just will not be a top priority now.
I am also surprised to see that there isnt a GT Prime on that desk. What gives, are you passing on one of the nicest looking primes.
Diecast is overrated, the rubber splits, the chrome flakes, and the decals tear and crumble.
Id much rather have dynamic playability, articulation, and better headsculpts (or heads in general in some cases) than a boring g1 brick
That's fine. I'm not expecting you to want 35 year old toys. You're very lucky that the toy line was so popular in 1984 and you have your choice of official, KO, & 3rd party versions of basically every character from G1 and beyond that feature those qualities you look for.
