    It's totally this. They posted it on their facebook and it's totally in there saying just that.

    Same price to me in Canada so with shipping and conversion to CAD (UGHGHGHGH I hate this part) $206 ish CAD. Good price but I may get in trouble spending that much...

    If you're getting killed on the shipping you're just not buying enough. They have a coupon code right on the main page (FS2019) for free shipping on orders over $169.

    I wasn't planning on getting anything for Black Friday, but I kept saying how much I loved the Fans Hobby stuff I've bought (Archenemy, Gunfighter, Double Evil, and Power Baser) and that I'd buy the monsterbots if I got a good deal. Well, I got all three monsterbots plus the trailers for Archenemy and Power Baser for $312 shipped.

    Dude, I did not notice the coupon code, thanks for pointing that out. I did not get anything before because shipping was killing it, but now its a deal for real.

    I noticed that. I can get Gunfighter2 & trailer with $43shipping or spend another 20-30 to get another figure.

    Gah! Decisions, decisions!

    As cool as Gunfighter and his trailer are (read: much in every way!) I still can't quite bring myself to part with the cash - even at these awesome prices - simply because I've got the original G2 Laser Optimus Prime, and I don't feel like I need both.

    Sure, G2 OP isn't MP-level quality like Fans Hobby's stuff is (I could not be happier with my Double Evil and Powerbaser; and cannot wait for their God Bomber to drop in a few weeks), but for me, he just has a certain charm to him that'd be hard to part with.

    Plus, I still have my G2 Megs for him to go up against, so there's that. (You hear that, FH? Maybe if a certain 3rd party had got around to producing their own G2 Megatrons, they might sell more of their G2 Optimus Primes... just a thought!)

    Nice though the price is, I'd get hit with the shipping (especially here in Australia), as there just aren't any other items of theirs that I'd want, to take me past the $169+ free shipping point (pass on the Monsterbots, and don't really need Archenemy as well... if I got him, it'd probably be instead of GF...)

    G2 OP has the light-up function; the big surface-to-air missile launcher is still really cool (although I now know that the big cannon on GF's trailer also shoots missiles); and I have a particular soft-spot for G2 OP's 5-shot missile launcher because it can also be detached from the trailer and used as a separate hand-held weapon.
    [I'm reaching here, aren't I?]


    Dammit, the more I think about, the more I think I'll eventually cave...


    Maybe next year's Black Friday Sales, if GF is still around...

    You sound like you're trying real hard to talk yourself out of it;)  I like having G1 counterparts to my MP figures. It makes for a cool display.

    Just get it, mate.
    I'm in Australia too and i couldn't pass on the free shipping PLUS 33% discount.
    Finally finished up my Monsterbots and got GF as well.
    Get it and if you don't like it, sell it off.
    At the price they're going for, you won't lose.

    Q: Was Athena shown in-stock (or whatever the preorder equivalent is) when free shipping was available? I need to know how much regret to feel about not ordering earlier.

    None. They made other items unavailable on purpose.

    Thought I'd check Reprolabels for stickers for Gunfighter's trailer, since I'd like something a little more G2-ish than the labels that come with it. $65 they want. I get that they're not in regular production and that maybe it takes a little extra time to get them printed, but c'mon, they're still just stickers!

    Thanks for the head's up!!

    Wow.

    Shit. Of course they're sold out of Double Evil! Fuck. That's the only way I could afford him.

    To be fair--as some have pointed out--there are a lot of these figures they marked as "sold out" so they wouldn't get taken on the deal. There's a good chance Double-Evil was never up for offer at the discount.

    The trailer from Fans Hobby comes with a 50% off coupon for the reprolabels I think? $32.50 is still really expensive for stickers though.

    Oh. In that case, I feel better!

    No, wait. I don't.

    That seems a bit sheisty. I mean, c'mon FH! Couldn't you just offer Double Evil at 20% off of retail? That's a whole bunch more than you sell each unit to retailers for....

    Damn.

    TCP has their stuff up. Mostly small discounts but there's some great deals to be had if you go through the whole thing.

    Edit: didn't want to have regrets later so I grabbed them MonsterBots!

    Thanks for the heads up! Found this guy tucked away in there. Compared to eBay that's a steal!
