    Final Price at ShowZStore for Slingshoot will be between 120$ - 130$, Frank told me.

    The Final Price will be decided within the next Days, since they are still checking
    the Box Sizes, Battery included or not, and
    estimated Shipping Cost.

    Ok screw it... I'm in on all of them.

    These will probably be done sooner than FT menasor :p

    I also thought that way. All in.

    For those People who can not afford these: think twice; DST Needed much time to even Release Slingshot after the Reveal.

    The Second Figure Skydive will not follow so fast. I smell a huge time Gap / Delay between the next Releases.

    Do not expect to see a complete Combined Superion in 2022.

    So there is still time to hop on the Train.

    It's not about the money for me.

    I've had transformers when i was a kid, still have them all. I couldn't have a megatron gun when i was a kid, a few years back i found out about masterpiece transformers (yeah I've lived under a rock) and bought the THF-03 megatron.
    Then MMC bruticus as i had it and played the crap out of it as a kid.
    Then i went in on the FT menasor, only had breakdown as a kid and never completed the set. and bought a couple of others, i since found out that i handle my toys quite often and i like involved transformations.
    So while i like spoiler and roadking, dragstrip and magnum don't do much for me.

    Second thing i found out is that I'm now more into realistic alt modes over G1. Unless if i had them as a kid, like MMC assaultus, i just don't feel anything for them. That's also the reason i eventually sold my megatron, didn't have it and my wife doesn't like to have a gun mode in our living room.
    Because of that i didn't transform it ad much so i didn't get any joy out of it.

    Still pondering to fo in on the toyworld war series, their size is the only thing that's holding me back.

    I find it difficult to pre-order something i haven't seen anything about the transformation.
    But these just look too damn good to me to wait and see what happens and maybe miss out and need to buy from secondary market

    I am now in Contact at Facebook with DST.
    Me and another guy at the comments try
    to convince them to add 2 Heads for each Figure into the Package.

    1 Modernized and 1 for G1 Fans.
    (See, I do not hate the G1ers ☺)

    I had succeed with this once; at the Generation Toy Devastator. Where GT was unsure which Heads to add, and I convinced them via Email to add both G1 and Modern Heads.

    I will try again at DST, so G1 Fans can enjoy this Set also. But I am not sure what the End Result may be. This is up to DST.

    I have only let them know, that the Community wants Modernized and G1 Heads.

    Actually I hope they don't honor request at all. This is stylized g1 cult got that zeta. Last time g1 cult wha-bulanced when gt put put their constructicons it slowed production down. With that additional head nonsense. It's obviously stylized, and military jet colors

    Yes it slowed GT Production down.
    I remember that; The Constructicon Prototype Heads were modern; I pre ordered

    Suddenly G1 Fans came in and demanded
    (Similar to the Live Movie demand)
    "Change Heads to G1 ONLY"
    > Generation Toy Changed Heads to G1.

    But many also wanted the Modernized ones..

    So I wrote GT via Email and explained the whole Story; 2 Heads for each Figure were made.

    Haha the next thing I remember was a Hardcore Shitstorm from Hardcore Gewwunners, that wanted G1 Heads ONLY for THEMSELVES. Geewwwunners were pissed because other People got their Modern Heads also.

    Every G1 Fan was pissed at me because GT added now 2 Heads. They did not want GT to add Optional Modernized Heads for New Collectors.

    That is what I call.....acting like small
    5 Years old Child. Raging Man Child.

    I hope it does not happen again.

    If a Geewwunner can not accept the new Sculpt; leave the Thread.

    But I will try it at Facebook anyway, so that both G1 and Modernized Fans get what they want.

    Man child rage my ass! Those folks were pissed off collectors who was expecting IDW constructicons. My big beef is people trying to make a bridge to the G1 fucktard sticklers, they're always a problem like idiot x girl friend always bitch'n complainin blah, blah, blah. Dreamstar toys don't need to fall into that trap and roll the dice on making g1 heads for this set. It will slow down their production and put them behind schedule they can't afford, here's what I mean by that.
    One nasty scenario, let's say dream star listens to you and make additional heads...And production is not on time, next folks walk away from purchasing it. Also with this inflation going on, cost goes up for all the figures. Hypothetical but this shit can happen. Honestly I'll contact Dream star toys on their facebook and tell them don't make additional heads, don't run the risk on being behind schedule. And stay ahead of the competition, in addition Dream star can't run the risk of being over looked..To clarify fans toys line up and that choo choo train combiner raiden. In closing G1 sticklers reminds me of woman that's bold and never satisfied...And they wonder why people get the hell away from them.

    So true. The hilarious thing is, people are doing the exact thing they seem to be pissed off about. Fighting a battle, essentially against another them. Seems familiar....

    At least Army of Darkness didn't take itself seriously and knew it was a comedy.

    Guess that's what makes these forums even more hilarious.
