    More great news for Singaporean fans, these guys are now available at mass retail! So far only spotted at OG @ Orchard Road at the exorbitant price of S$169.90 (~US$111 :eek:  )

    I bought mine today from a local dealer -- at a much more reasonable price. :)

    An intelligence of only 3, I thought Superion was smarter than that. He didn't speak much but... y'know.

    damn.. those prices are way up there.. maybe its because I am a noob to collecting the newer lines.. but shouldn't that be closer to around 40.00 usd when released here like the constructicons classics from walmart?

    I really have no idea but I think the price at mass retail is severely overpriced, might be a typo error(a serious one)? :lol

    the constructicons weren't $40 when they were released, it was either $25 or $30. i kind of figured this would happen. we know universe goes away when ROTF comes out, so i guess it'll be a change over.

    Edit:

    From tformers, showing it was $30

    how can a helicopter be an astronaut? just because it can fly doesn't make it any more suitable at space travel than a tank.

    anyway, i find Blast Off more interesting now that he's a tank. His G1 personality was that he hated being on his own in space and that he became distant, cold and aloof because of it. Give him an alternate mode where he will always be with the others and think about how it will affect him. A helicopter would work similar too but a tank makes him permanently on the ground.

    the constructicons were 39.99 when they were released. I got mine right off the pallet when they came on the floor at Walmart. They stayed $40 for about 2 mos until dropped down to $30 until finally going down to stay at $19.95. I got my first one for $40 and my 2nd for $20. :-(

    I want these but if the price is that outragous at Wal-Mart I'm going to protest the living hellout of that store and have a giant bomfire burning many HASBRO products.

    These figures suck for the most part because the add on hands and feet are crap. The way the limbs form is crap too. Superion is the worst of them all. Devastator was better than these two though I think. I wish someone could market some decent hands and feet for these combiners.

    you're right.. they were 29.99 at walmart.. I didn't get mine then.. I didn't start collecting again until this year.. so I paid more than that.
