    So, I am now on a budget as I stated before. And of course, like anyone else on a budget, this is a crazy month from a TFer stand point.

    Why the F must it be that this month alone we are seeing:
    - iGear Ironhide and Ratchete: $240
    - Cyclops: $150
    - Rage of Hercules: $45
    - Green Giant:$355

    I mean, that is freaking $800 of TFers in one month! A big boom!

    I fear if I don't get them, they will be sold out and sky rocket in price. Why... oh why?!

    At least Hasbro MP OP is not here yet!

    If you really want that stuff, you could start allocating your current budget to it. In other words, cut back on - or put a stop entirely to - buying retail. It's what helped me save up for TFC's Hercules.

    Doesn't he already have Hercules? That could be his reason for wanting the Rage upgrade.

    I guess the only thing I can come up with for you Alucard is to do like the rest of us poor folks is to decide which you want more and just buy those.Better to have 2 or 3 then none at all.Hope that helps.

    You forgot Steelcore at $70. SDCC Bruticus $100-$250 (depending how you got it)

    I was thinking the same thing. I dropped a lot of money on TF's this month (I just skipped on RAGE)

    Want to make the thought worst? FP is on track of releasing figures about once a month. That's another $50-$90 a month depending on who is being released. MMC has the Seekers and Sixshot.

    I guess we can take comfort in knowing that Hasbro doesn't have much coming.... oh wait

    American release:
    MP Optimus
    MP Thundercracker
    Takara
    MP Soundwave
    MP Red Alert
    MP Sideswipe

    Plus Prime and FOC and hopefully Classics.

    Holy hot damn this is going to be a hard year to collect (but one hell of a fun one)

    LOL... all I can say....

    If I didn't have a roof over my head or food on the table, I shouldn't bitch either because at least I could breathe....

    Hercules = MP Devastator
    Giant = Classics Devastator

    Yeah, I am good at allocating budgets for the most part but 3rd Party's mess it up!

    Basically, this is also the first month that I am on the budget! If these last till next month, I would be fine.

    But from everything I have seen, Hegemon sold out, Cyclops in stock in only one place and everywhere else going up in price.

    Yes, had expensive year.

    The good news is my wife made a good sale this month, which means extra $$$ in for us! Every sale she makes pretty much means extra disposable income. Yay!

    I agree bignick,no matter how cool I think 3rd party stuff is sweet as hell I probably won't ever get any except maybe more of those WST's,I have the complete Dinobots set and thats about it.I just think paying $125 for a deluxe size 3rd party figure is just outrageous. Just my two cents.

    I do both, but at least I'm a retailer so I get them cheaper

    Same character two different displays.

    Giant is more of a Classics Devi going with FP's Bruticus and upcoming Menasor and perhaps the rumoured MT Computron.

    Hercules is either a stand alone or an MP figure, I don't view Herc as a Classics and thus you can own two. :)

    Yeah, you don't know the half of it:

    - KO Big Lots Devastator
    - KO High Quality Devastator with all Crazy Devy Parts
    - Geniune G1 mint Devastator in KO Box
    - Hercules
    - Wanting Giant now.

    qft. Shit, glad I don't! That is super broke waiting to happen.
