    For the same reason some people don't like IDW or bayformers... Some people just want their transformers to be blocky forever...

    Primus forbid that someone wants to spend their hard earned money on their own personal preferences and not yours.

    Maybe someone should chastice you on not having any desire to spend $400 of your hard earned money on a random toy that you have no interest in. Crazy thought: it's just a toy. You don't have to like everything on store shelves. .

    TFsource and BBTS lowered their prices to $399 USD. I don't think you get the exclusive piece though

    I really hope their 04 Optimus Prime is gonna be closer to Drift's price (Prime is smaller than Tarn right?). Getting two $400-ish Primes in such a short timespan would be...a bit much.

    It's actually a great redesign of the character. Especially the fact that they have fixed the one glaring problem with his Victory Saber form: as every fan of Japanese Super Robots knows - - the lion's head goes on the chest. Silly Takara.

    It's just not worth $400 for one half of that badass combination. Even if Leo is only $300, that's a brand new laptop. That's a month's mortgage and utilities.

    If they make a model of this for $50 a shot I'm there. I don't give a rat's trap about IDW's stories, but Milne did a nice job with this rework. That said, I'd love to see Don Figueroa's take on this sort of Brave Gundam Hero design.

    Uhm he is smaller than I thought compared to Tarn. This should be seeker size or slightly smaller, right?

    You don’t. They’re using D4Toys for those parts.

    Yeah, this guy is easily just priced at too high for what you get. I don’t doubt the quality but still...

    We literally have a $400 Star Saber. It wouldn’t be made by Flame Toys or approved by Hasbro if neither though it would sell.

    So there is no excuse why we haven’t gotten a CHUG figure yet.
