    $40 is a bit much for a $15 toy being sold for $30 at retail.

    @Chaos Prime the msrp for the voyagers is 30, and while that isnt a cheap price by any means, i disagree with your contention that this particular wave is worth 15 for each figure. Megatron and Hound are two of the best movie figures weve received in some time now. While some may want to wait for a lower price....waiting for a fifty percent drop may be unrealistic. To each their own i suppose.

    Thanks, but I've actually decided to cancel my pre-order for these two as well.
    I kinda just wanted copies of the molds.
    Over the weekend I came across and picked up the Optimus and Megatron versions that I had passed on earlier.

    No, I get it; inflation. Go back 10 years ago and voyagers were $15, which was reasonable. You felt like you were getting your money worth.
    But I strongly believe that at double the price Hasbro and retailers are pretty much turning away business.
    But really how much more can they raise prices, while cutting back on quality control before people just stop buying altogether? I bet that time is approaching quicker than we all think.

    I dont know that movie voyagers msrp was ever 15, maybe for the 07 film, iirc rotf voyagers were 20 bucks, but your point still stands. Still, i would prefer paying the inflated price over not having voyagers at all, which was hasbros decision with the 2015 RiD line. An unfortunate decision probably based on their skepticism over people paying the prices youre talking about

    Oh yea. From about 1995 to what...2010? Megas/Voyagers were about $15, deluxes we're like $10. But times change, prices go up. I just miss the days when I could go the store with $40 and change and come home with four deluxes. Those days are gone.

    @Chaos Prime Agreed. But look at it this way, as time goes on, we enjoy different engineering with new molds. Combiner wars and Titans return has been an absolute blast for me, offering the complexity line like RiD havent't. Same goes for the bayverse toys, each toyline may not have been perfect, but within each line there are gems.

    I wandered over there during lunch today and got the last Seaspray. Just wanted to say I love you guys. Its really great how this forum helps us all find things. Seaspray was priced exactly to come out to $11 including tax which is fun. I'm glad I managed to hold out from overpaying online. He's a pretty great little guy too.

    I was happy to see one broadside left as they had 6 or so a couple weeks ago. Maybe they'll eventually get Octane and Blitzwing. Its interesting that Prime and Megatron showed up a lot of places again instead of the newer wave. The Topspin is still there too.

    I also swung by Woodbridge Walmart and they had 4 of the die cast Hot Rod + coin sets and nothing else of note.

    Voorhees Target had a lot of Wave 4 out yesterday. Looked like 2 cases of everything. Lots of Wave 3 Megatrons too.

    They also haphazardly stuffed everything from the TLK endcap into the existing shelf space, so half the aisle is swimming in Grimlocks and Slashes.
