    Yeah...I'm giving this guy a pass, as much as I wish otherwise. He might be awesome, but I didn't even give $600 for my Fort Max. :p

    I have a pre-order for the first Hercules part, but I'm in serious debate to cancel. I need some reviews before I commit to $600 on plastic.

    Wow, yeah $600 really puts it in perspective. At $50 per figure, yes, $60 maybe, $70 or above...no way.

    I'm sure they'll sell, but most likely the audience will be fractionally smaller than if they were priced a little differently.

    The span of time over releases kills it for me a little, too. A discounted "gift set" would be nice for the future :)

    I wanted these Hercules figures but the price is keeping me from buying. Considering that the price will more likely go up instead of down, I may have to miss out on these.

    At $100 a pop, I'm afraid that Not_Devy is a pass, unless I win the freakin' lottery or something. Yikes.

    600$? and its like you cant just return it to the store if there is something wrong with it. i have one on preorder...hmmm?

    cancelled, i can live without it. plus in the rodi vs cyclonus comics, every figure has been made except the dinobots and devastator, hasbro said generations is continuing. i think this will be the surprise at the 2012 Botcon. patience lads, hasbro loves us, they just got a movie to promote...

    The price on not-Devastator is one thing (I still want them). I am a bit disapointed they are being released one at a time.

    I was hoping for a set so I was 100% sure I would have all of them at once. And this set could be cheaper then 6 induvidual figures.
    Maybe some stores could give a discount on the next figure if you bought all the previous figures at them?

    It would be a shame if they would be released 1 and a time and then halfway the rest would be cancelled.
    OK then I would have several nice constructicon figures but the whole value is the combination.

    Any info on how much time there will be between releases? Even if 1 every month it would take 6 months for me to finally have Devastator. :( 
    Which takes way to long! I want Devastator ASAP! :'(

    We already seen prototype images of most figures except Mixmaster and Bonecrusher so you would think that it shouldn't take to long for the rest to be released.

    The dilemma:
    Wait for all to be released and buy them together (or as a set?) at a cheaper price and combined shipping with the risk of missing the early figures.
    Or buy each figure seperate with shipping costs added to every figure (although I could combine shipping with other figures).

    I too am wavering on not-Devastator.

    I like the thing, a lot, and if it was half the price no doubt I'd snap it up. But nice as it is, it's more of an updated Generations style Devy, and I'd much prefer a definitive G1'Masterpiece' version. With so many third parties out there turning out cool stuff, I figure it's only a matter of time before someone (maybe even HasTak, though I wouldn't hold my breath) will produce a real G1 accurate Devastator, and I'd be real annoyed if that happened after I'd forked out for this one!

    Pre ordered. I'm going to keep this guy sealed until we get a review for him, or until I'm sure I want the whole set. That way I can decide if I want Devy, or sell him off later for more than I paid for
