    That's still 2x or 3x retail.

    Deluxes were $14.99 during T30 so that's close to 4x retail on the high end.

    For a very good figure that was released a number of years ago, and one that many people consider to be better than the update?
    Makes sense to me.

    It was going for that before the update came out. Whether or not it's worth that to whoever chooses to buy it is completely subjective. I was only pointing out how much over its original retail value that it actually is. Personally, I think the Kingdom version is much more accurate so I'm fine with that. I also previously owned the T30 figure and didn't care for it so there's that too. If others like the T30 version enough to pay the current prices that's up to them.

    True, I suppose it’s just the voice that annoys me.


    The more I look at it, the waspinator’ s insect legs in robot mode look very messy. I don’t know if it’s the color, or of they look really long

    one of the things I don’t like about kingdom is that the weapons are.. ehh. Cheetor had the tail axe, but it shocked me that he didn’t come with the iconic blaster. Rhinox’ s blasters also look very eh. I love the idea of weapons becoming part of the beast alt mode, but waspinator’ s weapon looks weird, also his stinger looks really off in robot mode

    Like rhinox this one seems to not be worse or better than the T30 one and it’s kind of a either or situation. That does disappoint me because honestly after 7-8 years since t30 I expected better figures for rhinox and waspinator than what we got. Not bad per se, just kinda ok. I felt like all the G1 characters that got a new toy were noticeably better than previous versions too. More definitive versions if you will.

    You joke, but "leak" threads seem to get more conversation and hype than official reveals. Looks at the chatter surrounding something like the Pipes leak vs Preceptor reveal.

    Well, I\'m interested in Shadow Panter, Tigatron, and Slammer. Sadly, Hasbro\'s stupid refusal to reveal leaked products probably means theyre gonna get revealed when they hit store shelves, and it\'s not like theres anything we can do about it. They just straight up IGNORED the fan-rage last fan first friday. Of course, Hasbro is not as bad as what Mattel is doing to \"certain series\", but I do believe SOME intervention MIGHT be needed in the future.

    Wow!  Have yet to see wave 3.  Only wave 1 and the occasional wave 2 restocks near me.

    Wish I could swap out my TakTom Waspinator's bug legs onto the new version...

    Ah well.

    I'd ignore that "rage", too, seeing as how it is barely existent.

    Thank you for comparing the Kingdom figure to the actual T30 figure, not the rare premium convention-exclusive Legends figure. Kingdom's gun looks worse than T30 but everything else looks better.

    i'll be waiting on the eventual upgrade kit that adds a stinger onto the gun. that should fix my only issue with this figure.

    Still haven't even found Tracks, and that's one of the figures from the last wave I've been most interested in

    I hope the sloppy paints aren't a major issue. I also hope someone makes some aftermarket bug legs for him.

    Imo t30 looks better in robot mode, but kingdom is better in beast mode
