    Doubt it for the head, probably just clear plastic for the sake of it with silver behind there.

    Maybe. But clear plastic would be an odd material choice if there is no led. Either colored clear plastic or just use a solid piece. Hmm.

    My guess is $500+ for the body. My reasoning is that a typical MP combiner is about $500. Although this figure is probably less pieces, it is substantially larger.

    I’m assuming to curb people from preordering and then canceling.

    Probably because people put in pre-orders at like 5 places when they pop up and then they cancel most of them when it's near release to go with the quickest/cheapest place

    Same reason why any business does anything, because they figured they could. Two years ago it was probably not a wise option, but more recently we've been seeing retailers doing this so I'm sure they figured now they could.

    Well, I mean he looks the part definitely… but he seems oddly bland due to a lacking of much detail line work like on FT figures of yore…

    And honestly if I were to grab this (at which at this point is financially and space-wise impossible) I’d probably have the main body in its robot form with Cerebros standing on his shoulders or something, which means that blandness would be displayed.

    FT is not messing around. Damn. Regardless of when the main body gets released, this is proof FT is not messing around. I'm impressed, stunned and stupefied.

    Due to the character’s status in Headmasters, I’d imagine it’s referring to Hannibal the general.
