    honestly, im pretty excited about this!

    at first glance, the price seems like a bit much, but I calculated it out, and it\'s fairly reasonable. you\'re paying around 4.50$ for the packaging according to my research (104.99-4.50=100.49). then, you\'re paying for tyrannocon\'s retooled head, which is around 7$ (100.49-7=93.49). 

    now here\'s where it gets a little tricky, JP93 is a completely new mold, but not the first. at first glance, you may think of him as a deluxe, but he\'s probably more voyager sized (or may have a similar parts count to a voyager) like how maverick was leader size and price, or how gigawatt was deluxe at voyager price. 

    for this, I have priced JP93 at 31.99 (93.49-31.99+61.50)

    now, we subtract the base figure price for tyrannocon, which is 52.99 (61.50-52.99=8.51)

    we are left with 8.51$ (give or take the box price as i could not find an exact), which i presume is either A; profit, or B; used to pay Universal for the Jurassic park trademark

    is it still expensive? yes. but is it worth it? also yes

    1. I just see fan boys complaining about prices  It  is  imflation & such. Not  going to be the  death of hasbro/ Frankly I am one  guy  & I don\'t  give a  damn about prices I will  pay what ever  amount  I rather  deal witht he  toys then the   fandom. I am a die hard  collector  Since   the 80\'s I always bought  tous .  My collection is in  3  rooms of the house. Also  I just made  a video of my  collection in  room 1.

    Oh hell yes, this is everything I wanted and expected! Steep price, but I'm definitely grabbing it. I even love how they're packaged. I also love how g1 Dinobot-esque she is in alt-mode and that head is awesome. The Ford Explorer looks amazing and the bot mode isn't half bad. I totally expected the head to look like that, very nicely done. Que early November when everyone will be recreating the "clever girl" scene with Transformers* lol

    Edit: aaaand preordered!

    Ditto & ditto :D :p 
    All I need is the words “Jurassic Park” and “Transformers” & I’ll throw money at my screen :lol 
    Honestly, I was expecting something more half-assed like a Trailbreaker or Hound repaint, so this level of effort on the Explorer is great in my book. Names are wonky and a little lazy, but the set itself looks great :rock

    Damn... just noticed JP93 has ball joint elbows :(  definitely not a dealbreaker, but that’s kind of a bummer, idk why either since it’s 2021, not 2005...

    Curious to know how much people want this to cost...? Like I’m not gonna be a Hasbro bootlicker but seriously how much do you want a licensed collab pack to cost? It isn’t gonna be straight what a leader+voyager 2 pack would be I can tell you that.

    That aside I dig this. I wish I could buy them separately though because I definitely don’t have space for an entire dinosaur. It’s interesting and I think they’ve done a good job with this set.

    They'd have to remold the entire outer shell to avoid paying royalties to Ford... so probably unlikely...

    Not entirely thrilled by the price, but I still ordered it. It combines 2 of my favorite franchises how could I not buy it?
