    Mmm yeah, tfsource had it for 240 basically too. :(  That's where I preordered -sigh- When I was shopping around all the prices were basically the same wtf

    With the price increases, I decided to just order him from TFExpress before they hiked it up. Way to go, self control.

    Well damn- now I’ve gotta think long and hard about whether the V2 will be that much better than the first run version or if I just snag a 2nd copy right now While the price is better.
    Be nice to have full details of the improvements/tweaks although I imagine the price increase is more down to maximising profits. So- if paying a bit know cash aids the funding of Tyga Eagle and beyond then it’s a worthy investment.

    Crazy thought- Would anyone here crowdfund a totally show accurate Transmutate made by JX? I reckon that’s the only way we’d ever see an MP styled version of her. For some reason I just feel like I need her to fully complete the cast- Ravage too!

    This guy came out already? Looks amazing, but it sounds like there are some first run issues. I'll probably wait for the second run to come out.

    People are happy to pay 650 for that new mp44 and it’s dogshit knees, but will whine about an increase in price for the second batch of this absolute piece of art.... I’ll never understand the thought process of transformers collectors.

    Because you have to pay more money.

    I know it may be quite a shocker, but people like to spend the least possible. I know, shocking concept, but its a thing.

    The same people then turn around and complain that it’s not up to standard...

    Sounds like those factory workers find the fact they have to put actual effort into putting this thing together a bit too much.

    This doesn’t bode well for the future of JX products if factory owners are gonna roll their eyes and think ‘oh here comes mr big figs with all his fancy paint apps; time to up the price!’

    Ok, cool. are you assuming I'm one for posting that, 'cause you're giving that vibe off a lot here. Those that buy the product have free will to voice criticism because they now own it. They have traded their currency that they worked for, for the figure. Not everyone that buys MP 44 buys this, and a majority here didn't buy MP 44. Don't give me that "don't complain about the price hike" shit and then complain that 44 is overpriced. how do you think that got there? Price hikes are always bad for us consumers, and we have a right to not like it. Last thing we need is the "shut up and take it" mentality in these forums
