    Based on the NASA 2020 Rover concept. It even has a detachable trailer section.

    That's exactly what justifies it. When you increase the complexity of the engineering and transformation, you create more parts in the figure. These price points are broken down by number of parts and paint applications. That's why Studio Series Hot Rod is Deluxe sized but costs Voyager price, because he outclasses actual Deluxe figures with his higher budget.

    Whether or not you feel like it's worth it to you is another story. But it's not like they're purposefully charging more for less.

    Similar reasoning behind Masterpiece figures that are deluxe or voyager height, they certainly aren't priced as deluxes and voyagers, granted then there's all the extra Masterpiece paint and accessories, but the point still stands.

    We don't do that here. That takes common sense, and you know how rare that is nowadays.

    Rodimus is great. The only shared ideas from ss86 I see is how the pipes flip around with the red panel to cover up the hands, and maaaaybe how the remaining piping and rear wheels hide in the leg. Otherwise its all new and I'm all for it. Gimme preorders hasbro

    So why is MP sunstreaker, the size of voyager cyclonus, over $100 and not $30? parts count. Engineering. Paint. It all adds up. so yes, thats exactly what justifies the price. Dont buy it if you dont want it, but dont base your opinions on false information

    Hasbro is the company that makes the call to raise prices for certain releases. Extra plastic or added engineering in said releases are reasons why.

    Gotta love it when someone is talking completely out of their ass and proceeds to insult everyone else.
    A quick glance at his post history shows him to not really have anything of worth to contribute so on the block list they go. That list has swelled because of this thread.

    As someone with actual experience in the industry, engineering and materials are literally what drives up costs.

    As someone who buys the product. I’ll pay more for a better product rather than settle for mediocre
