    Takara released prices for the Netflix awhile back. And those crazily priced ones, like from tfsource ($90) are not due to scalpers, those are imports. The only USA retailer selling the Netflix figures direct is Walmart.

    What were the yen prices? Cause $90 is still ridiculously high if that’s what US importers are charging for Voyagers, even given Takara’s typical Voyager pricing (~$65)

    I can’t remember, but you’ve gotta remember that these aren’t typical voyagers, they have 2 battlemasters packed in, so that typical $65 would be closer to $75-$80 meaning the markup at western etailers would only be about $10-$15 which is pretty typical depending on the etailer

    CW Ultra Magnus to TR PMOP, CW Silverbolt to Cyclonus, CW Hotspot to Onslaught, TR Alpha Trion to TR Broadside were more what I was thinking.

    I don't think Deathsaurus is likely, even less so because it would reference a KO of one of their figures, it was just an example that happened to fit the other gimmick he has as well.

    DD might actually end up being more like Astro train who hasn't had any repaint or retool as yet.

    I seriously hate this whole "oh thats how her original art looks" angle people keep shoving in our faces. FLORAL DEARY SUCKS OK? Nobody wants the concept art everyone wants what the animators made SENSIBLE. They took the weird drawings and went "ugh gotta fix the drunk coked out art again"

    I think its the exact oppisite. Scalpers are pu**y by nature so theyre staying inside their basement. I went to walmart on my first shot and found everyone except Magnus. I bought Megs, Hotlink, Scrapface, and Mirage and left the other 3 deluxes behind.

    But theres two kinds of "heavy retools". There are those that follow the same transformation and engineering. And then there are those that completely redesign the engineering like they did with the Seacons.

    What a shame. There's only one detail I don't like about Arcee and it's keeping me from buying her. I really wonder why they did not revise that or if they don't see it.

    But Super Megatron looks awesome and I'm glad I pre-ordered him. He's gonna replace my United Megatron as adversary for Cloud Optimus. I think he fits well with the other updated looks of the Classics Transformers. So I can keep Animation Style Optimus and Megatron separate in a Detolf.

    I'm basing my "scalper" info from two places: ebay prices for Hotlink, which are awful, and The Chosen Prime's price for both Voyagers, which considering they had been in stock tells me they bought up the stock from their local Walmarts and scalped them for more than twice the price.

    Theres always going to be one or two a°°holes scalping. But other people are finding them. I found them on my first shot in the walmart closest to my home. Granted I live in a big city and have 5 walmarts under 5 miles away from me. I cant speak on those who live in rural areas. Just remember, the early bird gets the worm. That goes for scalpers too. Im sure ive ruined a scalpers day more than once by monitoring the sightings boards and hitting up 24 hour walmarts at 1 am and having first dibs on pallets just brought out as the ladies stock the shelves. Granted, you cant do that currently, but you can hunt. Wear your mask and social distance. Thats all I can say.

    This might be the first time in history where an ass shot has made something look less appealing

    thechosenprimes prices are imports, not local stock, so not scalping

    Well I successfully resisted Super Megs through the 28th. And this thread reminded me that Earthrise and Cyberverse are both getting better Arcees than this.

    The proportions, face and legs are light years ahead of any of 3p ones, but that chest looks really bad, especially from that angle.

    I wonder if a 3rd party company can fix Arcee for the eventually KO? I am actually considering skipping Arcee and that's a shame. That chest region is just so bad. So very very bad.
