    Actually, they're more comparable size-wise to a smaller deluxe, like Prid stuff, except they don't have random cost-cutting hollow spots.

    $15 + tax.

    Too bad 75% of Hasbro's toys are garbage. This is why we pay a premium for 3rd party toys.

    I'm hoping FP both re-releases their original "Insecticons" with the new G1-style accessories AND releases an upgrade kit for those who already have the first versions. We'll probably just get the latter though, if anything.

    Still on the fence about these. Just doesn't seem right without Venom.

    While I don't think it is quite 75% (at least of Deluxe+), I completely agree. I would much rather pay a premium for something I want every few months than have tubs of stuff that really doesn't interest me. Got home today, saw they were up for preorder, and couldn't grab my credit card fast enough.

    Not arguing 3rd party prices. Especially not FP prices. You get some amazing detail and it is well worth the money.

    While I find claiming 75% of Hasbro's stuff is "garbage" a bit extreme, I agree most of it comes nowhere close to what groups like FP are offering. That said, at least close to 100% of Hasbro's product is affordable to most, if not all. It's just a matter of getting what you pay for.

    That makes sense.

    "Extreme" is a less insulting word than I'd use, but we'll go with that.

    Now all I have to do is wait for Hasbro to announce Shrapnel and Bombshell and I'm set.

    I think the main reasons im on the fence about this is the simple fact of soo much stuff coming out already between now and the end of the year and their Warbugs. Im kinda digging the pics they showed off of these retooled with different alt modes so I dont know that I want to have this same trio (retooled or not) 3 times. I think if Assaulter and Menasor limbs werent coming out soon Id be all in.

    $50ish is the normal FP price for all of their Causality figures. I don't understand why price is an issue in this thread.

    Bought!

    Just going to throw this out there. I am in the middle of a move and waiting for a renter in my old house, and curbstomped my wallet on a deposit on our new place. I cannot justify this purchase. HOWEVER! In my move I am going to be dumping a lot of toys loose and misb from G1 forward..... a lot. If you wanna trade that second set of deluxe insecticons let me know. I got Shadow Scythe Sealed, wildrider, dia commander, magnus, all sealed classics, Alternators, BT's..........I can make you a custom box for your G1 toys.............. someone throw me a bone....
