    I disagree with your size estimation.

    Seems right if the description at TFSource is right. TFSource says 9.4 inch for Hannibal - MP-10 is 9.5inch

    You may have figured it out by now or seen the answer elsewhere but there was no direct reply so I figured I would. It is the Japansese Headmasters version of Cerebros, called Fortress.

    I never understood that speculation. I was expecting $1000 - $1200 minimum even before Haslab Unicron or recent price increases.

    Brawn is 5.5 inches, Fortress is 9.4 inches. Not quite twice the height, but getting there.

    Am I crazy for assuming some of the cost of the body production has been shifted to the head? So people buying just the head will be subsidizing the body. And that I’m fine with that

    it’s a Kickstarter head

    I think I’ll get the head of fort max for the headmaster aspect but assuming I’m priced out of buying the body. Surely it will be $$$$$

    It’ll be cheap by the time the body is set to release. We’ll have replicators by then.

    Imagine when they unveil the crotch for $200!

    “Yes, it’s a crotch, but it’s load bearing with extensive ratchets and comes with cannons and a stand”

    I don’t think so. Isn’t this priced the same as Chomp?

    I'm thinking basically the same as f0cus. It could be argued that Hannibal should be cheaper because they have similar capabilities in bot mode, but Hannibal is lacking the extra pieces for rear alt mode legs and an articulated tail Chomp has which should reduce parts count. On the other hand they added that large display which will make up at least some of cost difference. Maybe a little bit, but not much. I could see maybe the price was within $5 or 10 and they just said match Chomp to eat some of the cost of the body, but that would be at the high end.

    Of course if they release the body without a head that would be cost off the body.

    Now Dalianjj is no longer replying to messages - what's the best contact for FT direct. I want to get some of those screws for Warpath's knee.
