    The only way CrazyDevy will ever bring prices down and release some actual kits is if YOU QUIT BUYING IT.

    As it is, they can charge $40 for a tiny part or some wings and the fandom sucks it up. Why? Use some monetary discretion, people. This stuff isn't worth the prices they charge. The way they release it (one part at a time) with no indication of what the finished product will look like is just as bad as the price.

    For the love of god, vote with your wallets and force them to make some changes in their marketing!

    I kind of agree...their prices are high...I would like the waist/legs to fit a G2 yellow Devastator...but the high cost and the fact that I'm unsure which product to buy that will match the yellow color scheme is a big turn-off...

    Some neat parts for sure for upgrading a G1 Devestator, but too high a price when you have to buy all their upgrades separately. I wouldn't mind paying $50 for a complete Devestator upgrade package. That would have to include everything from the LED head down to his legs.

    Yeah, a $25-$50 full Devastator parts package would be cool. But those individual upgrade sets for $50-$60 a piece? Forget it.

    Kinda lame when a fan service is using marketing tricks to maximize profits from it's fans.

    An all in one set is just too logical. So it probably won't happen :lol 

    I understand it's not easy , and it takes alot of trial and error to make parts.
    But there's alot of competition out there these days for it, and most of them have better parts & deals to offer.

    It's like any geek shit, from ipads to 3D-TVs to X-boxes to whatever's next, GPS freaking kites or something.

    After the early adopters are all tapped, they'll be a price drop or giftset deal. Wait a year. These are going on 30 year old toys, they can wait.

    I hear ya, but in the name of capitalism, if it sells, it's worth the price...

    A Henkei Rodimus isn't worth 120+ either, but they regularly sell for that on ebay.

    If people want it enough, they'll pay the premium (or stupid price, whichever suits you!). I think CrazyDevy has found a niche, and they're obviously milking it for all it's worth. Me, I think they're clever, however I also think their stuff is rediculously overpriced....so I don't buy it.

    Lastly, and mark my words, there WILL be complete sets. Do I know? No. But as well as the individual pieces have sold, CD would be insane not to release complete kits at reduced prices.
    Will the people who bought the individual pieces be mad. I'm sure, but the sound of fan-rage can only be so loud.

    My 2c.

    I have less than no intention of buying massively overpirced add-on sets, piecemeal or otherwise. Bring the price down to a decent point and sell them as ONE SET or GTFO, CrazyDevy.

    One thing I would early adopt and I'll probably have to commission it, would be an adapter to add the Reverb repaint of the Energon helicopter mold to Liokaiser, in place of Hellbat.

    :D

    I'm not buying anything until I see a box set! 50 dollars for a waist or for a Fansproject Transformer? The answer is simple

    Now this is just funny.

    "Quit buying this stuff so I can buy it instead!" is pretty much what this boils down to.

    These kits have been SELLING OUT. Convincing anyone to stop buying them, when they want them and have no issue with the price, is impossible.

    No, no it isn't. I won't be buying it while their marketing scheme remains the same. I won't buy a part-by-part combiner upgrade with no idea of what it will look like at the end. What if I like the end result of all the combined parts but I never knew I would? Too bad, so sad - it's all sold out. That part bugs me more than the pricing, really. Until they release all the parts I have no idea what I'll end up with, and then it's too late.

    Is that so hard to understand?

    And frankly, the only thing they have put out that I'm interested in is the Devastator hips - and he can't even stand up straight with them! I am interested in their other combiner upgrades, but only they know the end result. I'm not diving into a $200 upgrade sight unseen.

    I would like it if someone would steal all of the parts from CrazyDevy's storage and sell them all for $1.

    Less than I expected, but still an insane amount for a head, hips, and fists.
