So, have you? I was wondering how much of these actually sell, regarding the pricing.
They're just shitty recolors of old g1 toys with gimmicks such as shooting removed. Not worth the quadruple scalper prices.
Does the CW Liokaiser set count? If so then yes. otherwise no. I almost got the Blitzwing and Astrotrain release when it was like $30 online, but ended up skipping it.
I got the Planet of junk set, a buddy wanted the rodimus and I wanted the junkions, plus scrapheaps head never got a wide release over here from what I remember. I also got liokaiser, which was pretty reasonably priced
Liokaiser CW is a platinum edition?
Yes, he's double branded as both combiner wars and platinum edition. It's hard to see but look under liokaisers name
I got the Cybertron Starscream repaint on clearance. It's an okay toy, definitely doesn't feel worth more than $40.
I got the AoE Breakout Battle set
I've bought Year of the Snake Omega Supreme, Weaponiser Ultra Magnus, and CW Liokaiser for full price
Traded an Energon Optimus for year of the Snake Optimus
bought Year of the Horse Optimus from a friend for 70
got Year of the Horse Starscream for 35 via combination of clearance price, coupons, and Rewards r us dollars
I collect the Chinese Zodiac Primes. if anyone has Year of the Dragon, Year of the Goat, or Year of the Monkey for a good price, hit me up
CW Liokaiser, and part of the Planet of Junk set (Scrapheap). I'm not in for the G1 re-issues or Chinese Zodiac themes, but if they fit into a pre-existing collection (G1 updates, Rodimus Prime/Hot Rod, Car Robots/RID updates), I'm in
I bought the Blaster/Perceptor Ops combo. Perceptor was on of my favorite toys as a kid so nostalgia got me to love this set. I also bought the conehead trio and really enjoy the set but it was kind of costly imo.
Omega Supreme, the trailer from the AOE Optimus and Sideswipe set, and Drift from the Autobots United set. Wouldn't mind getting Crosshairs also, and Autobot Heroes Ultra Magnus looks nice.
It's a shame that the line so rarely comes out with something interesting or worthwhile.
Trypticon and Predaking. No regrets. As they were never released in the UK back in they the 80's they're a pain to get on the 2nd hand market.
Uh no. There was only set of G1 molds that were colored oddly. I haven't heard about any of them having launchers altered. Price is a relative argument. It's either worth it to you or not. Getting brand new coneheads and Trypticon for less than vintage price was well worth it to me. I've purchased roughly a third of the Platinum releases. I'm well pleased with all of it. I'm fairly certain your claims are false. What did I miss?
I bought Trypticon because he was almost impossible to find complete on secondary market and the price was about the same as the secondary market.
Now he goes for half what i paid
Serves me right for thinking this guy would sell fast knowing there was a generations version coming along in future.
I would have bought the RID Bee + Grimlock one but nobody ever carried that over here.
No not as of yet some of the past ones I have wanted but did not initially have the funds when they were released and by the time i had the funds saved the price went bonkers.
Whenever I'm in Asia, I see them on the shelves and get excited and I'm not sure why. They're almost never something I would need to own and the price effectively kills any small interest I would have had in the items.
Kinda do want the Unicron and that mini Prime, but I know the prices will repel me.
Liokaiser and Omega Supreme, whatever will go into my classics collection that isn't redundant.
I got the AOE 3pack of Rusty Optimus, Rollbar, & Vehicon for Christmas last Christmas.
Really want to get the Junkion 3Pack, the Cyclonus 3Pack, and Unicron sets.
