    the problem with that theory is the apache pre orders sold quick so releasing it at the same time as xtb's will make no difference because there are none left and will be no more apache's for sale on release unless there are any canceled orders at certain stores

    This may not be the most fun way to do things, but between credit cards, deposits for pre-orders, features like the Stack option at TF Source and the no- or little-money-down method for the Insecticon set, I've really tried to stay disciplined and pay things off as soon as I order something else.

    With four Dinobots, three bugs, two copies of Quietus, Zeta's Bruticus and a few Bay movie figures all on the sheet this year, I've really let a lot slide, but with the way that these no-warning pre-orders have been dropping, I'm insisting on not letting things pile up. I knew this spring would be bad, but this was more than I'd expected.

    Canceled my preorder on TCP.

    Rising costs or no, this thing ain't worth damn near 300 bucks so someone else can have a go

    HeatToys was $239.99 shipped which almost seems like a decent deal at this point. Sheesh.

    Did the same. I have the original FT release so I'm good. Too many new items being released (TF and non-TF related) that is making the reissue race difficult to spend this kind of $$$ on.

    Not shipped friend. They changed things up on this release and slide a notice in there below where you order the figures. May still end up being the cheapest option but a lot is gonna hinge on those shipping fees. It's unfortunate they decided to pull this on a P.O. they knew would sell out near instantly.

    Trust me, I would have at least partially paid them off, ha. I actually just ordered a new motherboard for a new PC build i'm putting together.

    I'm not gonna lie, this thing costs around 2½ Quietus'. It's worth the cost I promise, haha.

    My usual MO with high priced preorders (at least $250 is usually my cutoff) is that I either put down a sizeable chunk of the price down in advance or I put it in full, most of the time doing so when the notice comes since i'm like "Oh shit, (figure) is coming, time to offset some of the cost now before I just get nuked".

    Haha, I hate that I'm susceptible to this because while everybody is, we all like to pretend that we're not... When I first saw the two different versions of FansToys' Grenadier, I thought, "The purple version looks better anyway... Even if it's toon-accurate in the gray, let me check the price-difference."

    I still bought the gray one. Power of suggestion.

    Yeah, haha, I get ya.

    I ended up just going for both since while I wanted an extra set for a sort of swarm, I wanted to differentiate just for the sake of differentiating. For bot mode, personally, i'm gonna most likely use the purple-chested Bombshell, just looks a bit better and more cohesive with the other 2, from how I see it.

    They've priced me out of the market. I'm sad.
