    Not like it matters what we want, TFC is going to price their Super-Ion however the f#@* they want, and then the e-tailers adding on their profit margin...

    But seeing as Superion isn't as popular as Devastator (their first project) would it be smart for TFC to price their Superion similarly?

    Regardless, the question remains and is simple:

    What are YOU personally willing to pay?...what's the maximum amount you are willing to drop on TFCs Super-Ion figures?

    Less than $50 per limb and less than $70 for torso?

    $50-$70 per limb and $70-$90 for torso?

    $70-$90 per limb and $90-$110 for torso?

    $100 and up per limb/torso?

    I am insane and will pay ANY price!

    The maximum I'd be willing to pay for it is probably the minimum they would be willing to sell it for. :D

    Between $300 and $400 for the whole mess. Any more than that and I'll have to pass.

    That sounds about right. But I would think it would come in at around $500.

    I'm going to be fair and say 50-70 per limb and 90 for the torso. This is also assuming that we are getting 4 Voyagers and an Ultra. If they are they size I can say I will support 60-70 per limb (but they must come with a good number of extras) and 90-100 for Silverbolt.

    Without much info to go on, I am assuming it to be roughly Herc-sized, so I am expecting a Herc-sized price. I got all the Herc bots from RK so it ended up costing me about $550 shipped. With one less bot I am hoping to get this one for about $460 or so. Based on the two I've seen though, I'll probably end up paying whatever the hell they ask for it.

    $100 per limb, $200 for Silverbolt. $600 total, same as Hercules. I don't want any "compromises" done to them to lower the cost---I want it to be just as big and detailed as Hercules.

    How does anyone seriously expect the price to drop by nearly half compared to Herc?

    Hilariously enough, for me this is another case of wanting characters over the combiner; much like with Munitioner from FP Colossus, I only want one guy (Air Raid) for my shelf; I have Classics Silverbolt and can take or leave the other guys. If they're not very attractively priced, and I mean unrealistically so, then I'm not picking up the whole 'bot. I'm still biding my time and picking up Hercules piece-by-piece for under $80 per; I've got plenty to spend my cash on besides a $600 fourth-tier combiner character.. :p

    Anyone voting for anything less than the lowest range is crazy. Lets make TFC think long and hard before they price Superion at $600 because we told them they could.

    The ideal price for me would be $50 per limb and $70 for torso, but I would probably still bite at around this price point too, $50-$70 per limb and $70-$90 for torso...depending on what all is included. As of right now, I LOVE the prototypes, but problems I have had and still have with Hercules don't make me as excited as I was for Hercules:(  I'm not interested in putting down a lot of cash for a toy that isn't going to work as advertised/promised.

    One less bot = $80 less. I'd shopped RK herc would have run u 480 plus shipping. 80 a limb and 120 for silberbolt sound about right for tfc pricing so 440 for the set. That is until.bbts prices it then it will be 100 a limb and maybe 150 for SB so u get your 550.

    Personally, Superion isn't a character I like or particularly want to own. Having seen the 2 protos though, I'd probably pick up the set if it looked really good and the price is right, but paying what I did for Hercules? I really don't see that.

    Too late...we already told them that when we all bought Hercules for pretty much that price...

    I'd expect it to be less than Hercules, since I considered the latter to be a litmus test to measure TFC's success, or lack thereof, with a combiner offering. Since Herc is out of the way and they seem to have a pretty good understanding of combiner engineering, I'd almost expect Super-Ion (heh) to be cheaper by comparison. How much cheaper is up to debate, but I'd almost expect it to be somewhere in the avenue of $500 before S&H.
