INCREDIBLE box !!!
Brain just melted. So awesome.
Not a fan of the G2 colors, but I'll admit - well done on that packaging. It looks very sharp, VERY G2.
Prefer it to the retail version, and too cheap to cough for the SDCC or Takara version. So it will do.
That will be my first ever, and new, G2 purchase!
Wow! It is pretty cheap! How are people not canceling their BBTS preorders?
It's about 5 USD more expensive than the BBTS listing.
Nice presentation and all, but I'll be damned if that yellow on Onslaught isn't the CHEAPEST looking yellow plastic I've laid eyes on.
I actually hate the box. Looks like a KO. I have cancelled my order. (Got the SDCC version anyway which is far superior).
Got mine pre-ordered from amazon.com It still works out cheaper for me with shipping and customs tax. Can't wait for it now!
I very much disliked Generation 2 at the time. Even though some of the molds were decent, I didn't like the color schemes, the packaging and that old G1 figures were repainted.
But I'm quite excited about this from a nostalgic point of view.
That box looks great! I wish Bruticus had the bulk to match that artwork on the front of the box though.
How did they get them before the two stores that it was exclusive to get it?
Hope this means the amazon one is coming sooner..
Holy crap, that box design is awesome!
Looks like this thing came straight out of the 90s!
Very glad I pre-ordered this version. Bruticus may not be as good as I hoped, but I this box it is one amazing piece. In its box it will stay.
I wondered that myself. But it is almost November. And the thread title needs to be changed to reflect that its in stock at RK, not Amazon. Its terribly misleading.
It has been worth the wait. Hopefully amazon starts shipping ahead of schedule.
I wasn't looking forward to this very much, I just wanted an incarnation of FOC brut and this was the cheapest way to obtain one. Now, I want that G2 brut in my life.
China, man. China. RobotKingdom.com is in China. They sell Hasbro toys, Hasbro Asia and Takara toys. They have access to toys--they know people.
Man, I checked my Amazon hoping this meant that it was going to be shipped, or at least get the estimated date bumped up.
That packaging is gorgeous. I'm still tempted to buy a second one to keep in the box.
RK's price is ~$5 more than BBTS's price and, for US customers, RK would definitely cost more in shipping.
So I guess are you talking about BBTS's price of ~$100 for the set of 5 retail Combaticons? That's sorta comparing apples and oranges. Would make more sense to say "Why are people ordering the retail version from BBTS instead of the G2 version from BBTS?" And the answer to that is, those people want the retail version, instead of(or in my case and I'd guess others), in addition to the G2 version.
