    Anyway, based on the above (and on the Chinese/Taobao estimated price), it seems that the body will cost 4 or 5 times the price of the head.

    Thanks for the giving us some numbers, Marcelo. At least we have some indication around where this land, as opposed to us just speculating or mindlessly just praising FT for graciously showing us love.

    Just a warning here to people buying in the US/EU - If the release date for the body is really next year, the international PO will probably be soon. Again, only speculation, but you never know (and I'm curious to find out how the stores will deal with the high price tag).

    Has anyone told Maketoys to get their asses back in the saddle and finish Brainstorm and Highbrow? I'm totally getting this (head only) and really want that full cast of Autobot Headmasters.

    I think the better question is who hasn’t told them. Maketoys do what Maketoys does. No Headmasters, no Coneheads, no Cross Dimension Galvatron.

    They’re the Reverse-FT, will drop those figures once everyone else has released their own versions.

    As someone who has cancelled POs there semi-recently you will either get a cash refund or store credit. I'm sure some will say "well duh" but the problem is there is absolutely no real way you'll know what they'll offer until you cancel. I think I cancelled 6 PO's there and 3 got cash back and the other 3 were store credit and there was no rhyme or reason why. He did ask if store credit was acceptable for the 3 orders so there may be a chance you can say no and just get the cash back but I never tried.

    Hope that satisfies anyone's curiosity about how they handle cancellations.

    Is it messed up that I still want the head even if I decide to pass on the body?

    I’m going for the head only, I’m totally cool with a Fort Max head representing him with the headmasters, hopefully they do Scorponok like that too

    Nope. I'm getting one Fort Max body and two Cerebros so I can display 1 with the other MP headmasters

    I see a display with a head just laying there with a bunch of FT Decepticons standing around/on it.

    If you think about it logically, the answer is obviously yes? His alt mode is kinda useless on its own.

    So what you’re saying is that if I buy the head, I basically have a legal obligation to buy everything else? Compelling argument. I wonder if it’ll hold up in the court of my wife.

    I've said before. People getting the body might be staring at 3000 dollars in monthly alimony.

    The trick to avoid that is to buy an LV bag for the wife and tell her that the store threw in the body as a gift.

    No sir
    A. More people buy the head the more ft might start seeing all the possible dollars they can liberate from people's bank accounts (including myself) and actually produce this thing
    B. Apparently id you collect autobot head masters this will complete the set

    I am quite aware of this and even agreed with you in the post about the math. This was meant in jest in case people hadn't seen those videos. I would say however that Tesla is using simple robots to build the neural network database for later robots. Boston Dynamics is doing some impressive things but I think the main focus is mechanical like you said trying to accomplish more with lighter materials.

    Ive said it before. Get better wives or dont try to sneak it behind their backs. Its amazing how far honesty will get u. Mine doesnt care what i spend my portion of our extra cash on and i do the same. Our bills are paid, we have food and clothing and vehicles, insurance and we used to take vacations when the world wasnt a total shit show so the extra money that we worked for can be spent where we want. mawwiage-the-princess-bride.gif

    This, absolutely this! Let me know how it goes with the wife. If it is favorable, then I will have to give it a shot ;) 

    And no my S/O does not get to say what I do with my earnings, but she does get a say on our living space :(

    I think everyone needs to prepare for the fact that Hannibal is the first of FTs line of Autobot Headmasters and probably Autobot/Decepticon Targetmasters.
