I agree totally that these figures are that damn good. Its just maybe I dont see Bayverse in the same light. I see Bayverse more like a side chick while G1 themed figures are basically like my main chick. I can only spend so much. I did the whole Fansproject thing. I did the TFC/Maketoys combiner thing. All I ended up seeing is Hasbro slowly do almost everything I haf wanted but was too impatient to wait for. Of course to a certain extent 3rd partys "motivated" hasbro to step up their game and pretty much take CHUG back forcing 3rd partys to move on to MP and legends scale. I finally been able to town down my 3rd party spending to only a select few MMC releases and various upgrade kits. Studio series made me really get back into Bayverse. But 3rd party prices, nah man. They fooled me once....shame on them. If they fool me twice, shame on me.
