Yeah, like I said in a different thread that I sold all my Transformers, with the exception of my Masterpiece figures, my Revoltechs, and Classics Jetfire. Now I only collect the 3rd party figures and accessories that TT/Hasbro will never make and the Masterpiece line. Not only do I have a ton more room, but my displays look so much better.

Thanks for the answer.

Because some people apparently need to keep saying it until someone else finally acknowledges their bitching with agreement.

1) Because some people live in denial ......
2) Because some people refuse to believe what they read , heard , saw for the past 5, 6 months.

Ah. It seems every thread delivers plenty of animosity now. People don't like the price or the figure and other posters jump all over them. Guess what? Everyone doesn't have to like the same thing. Get over it.

This.

The Tak packaging always looks good, enhancing what is truly magnificent TF.

The price also reflects the fact they had to pay for the Lamborghini license. I can't even count the number of time people complained about the alt modes for Transformers being "fake" cars. People have been begging for years to get real licensed cars for our favorite Transformers. Do people actually think they are going to get car licenses and not have to pay for it? TT has decided to really devote their attention to the MP line. Instead of just throwing out a couple figures and lots of repaint, we are starting to get a thoughtful progression in the line. When this line started we only got a couple figures a year. They have rebooted the line, putting the bots in scale with each other. I know the scale sheet for all the bots and cons has been floating around here awhile. These new figures in the MP line are spot on for scale. They are looking at how will these figures look displayed together. They are trying to give us faithful recreations of the cartoon to put on our shelves. I for one will fully support this line and hope it continues.
This... AAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLL of this...
