    I'm not a fan of exhaust but I do like this fella. I'm trying not to just hoover up every IF release just because it's theirs, but man it's getting difficult.

    It's crazy that at a legends scale their 'not wheeljack' mold looks far more like what I was expecting out of that new Earthrise Deluxe.

    I see it at TFSource but it's listed for 50$. Is that right???? For that price I'd rather get two other figures.

    Yeah that's pretty steep. They're also using that FOMO marketing of it being a convention exclusive.

    TFSource is my store of last resort - as for the fomo people should keep in mind convention exclusives from years gone by are still available.

    Yeah... I was worried about IF's 'Limited Edition Exclusive' G2 Sideswipe selling out... now BBTS has him on Sale for 15% off. Sigh...

    I really want Exhaust, but I'm not paying $50 for him.

    Hopefully those Chinese EBay sellers will have this guy at a more reasonable price.

    I hear you. It seems to be a corollary of Murphy’s Law that A) with any figure on which I hesitate, the figure is quickly sold out and only available on the secondary market for at least twice its retail, while B) any figure on which I pull the trigger quickly languishes with retailers until they offer a steep discount. Sigh.

    I think what happened with Iron Factory is they had a figure or 2 that quickly vanished from shelves and then never got replenished (EX-20R comes to mind). This sort of created an atmosphere of scarcity for collectors. Whether or not there actually is any truth to any current scarcity of production is unknown, although I would bet there isn't because of how well they are doing.

    One figure I’m surprised sold out is Blue Flash. Just a repaint of armored tactical, but he can be found nowhere now except for eBay at an inflated price.

    You never know.

    Yes but that armored tactical set is also nearly impossible to find now, so a repaint is a good way to get your hands on that mold if you missed out.

    This is far from true. I have seen this available in multiple places
