    Retail on these 2 packs is $50 but if you just want the G1 figs you’re $100 in for 2 deluxes.

    I think that was his point. And I’m in the same boat which sucks and leaves with “do I preorder and try to flip the beast?” Not enviable.

    Yeah, that's not the MSRP for the Ironhide/Prowl set, like at all. I paid $40 because I didn't wait. Don't sleep on G1 exclusives!

    The second pack is $40, as it supposedly has two deluxes, Sideswipe and BWII Skywarp.

    Nope, it's changed judging by recent listings. It's now Sideswipe and Nightprowler (Probably a Tigatron repaint).

    Six different colors of the Beast Machines Mirage and they are releasing another G1 version?

    I suppose.

    Only if Amazon doesn't cancel your preorder. I won't make the same mistake with these guys and wait until the month before release to place mine, but even some people who preordered Ironhide/Prowl, Ratchet/Lifeline, and the Coneheads shortly after preorders went up had their preorders cancelled.

    Exactly the only thing different would be the decals because that race car mode isn't really all that alien looking. I mean if you want this new one because you're concerned about the translucent plastic on the Siege version breaking, I understand that. However, this new one is probably just going to look like the Siege version with the toyhax label decals applied. Then Grimlock is just a repaint of the Dinobot mold that I already have and as the character, I actually care about. So a two-pack that is just Mirage, a character that I already have, in a slightly different deco and a repaint of another mold that I already have into a character I already a few G1 versions of so this set is an easy skip for me.

    As always these posts are just my thought process and rationale of how I talk myself out or into buying toys. If anyone is excited for these figures more power to them and I hope they have an easy time finding them.

    That isn't always the case. For example: I had the ratchet and lifeline set on preorder day 1, day of release it got paid for, went into shipping status, then went into delay status and here I am, still waiting despite having paid for it and received no refund either.

    Do we know if these will be Amazon exclusives here in the US?
    I honestly hope not. Amazon frustrates ever since they canceled my Ironhide/Prowl preorder and then my Ratchet/Paradron Medic preorder. (And I am a Prime member and have their card)

    I was just thinking last night how I needed and updated Mirage, Sideswipe and still need an updated Hound.

    I just hope I do not need to buy a couple Beast Wars Characters to get them.

    on the other hand maybe it’s a good opportunity to make a new friend.?.

    I mean, if anyone will be willing to part with Nightprowler and/or Grimlock for about $30 each (if both are Voyagers) I'll be here for them.
