    I think I've said it elsewhere but I'm going to give my cw upgraded sword which is all silver to menasor.

    I'm so looking forward to him. I'm getting rid of my old cw one as I think this is a far better version.

    He's a mess even with the upgrade for him. Sword with the upgrade as I have said is great.

    Bulkhead is shelfwarming unfortunately

    Which has implications for future Prime Voyager figures.

    Think back when Generations tried out BeastWars....

    He's shelf warming because no one really liked him, and he's too expensive at that price point. I for one will be glad to pick him up on clearance.

    Haven't seen him shelf warming in my area. I wouldn't say no one really liked him, especially considering in hand reviews of the figure have tended to be pretty positive

    Maybe the reason he is shelfwarming is because he is not only a new higher price, not only a part of Wave 1(the wave stores always get the most stock of), but is also coming out during a major recession in which a lot of people are struggling to afford groceries due to companies taking advantage of inflation scares and gouging prices.

    Sorry yeah, i meant people don't want to get him at that price point. I love him, thought he was s great take on bulk, but at that price point it's too much for me

    Not a mainline collector, but at $130 plus tax for a Motormaster, you could of gotten a MP FT Roadking for $150 delivered.

    Depending on what a person wants from each figure, they could be equal in value, and imo, deservingly so. It all depends on what someone is wanting from their $130 figure. Do you want a MP type figure of a single character or do you want a very playable figure that is realistically 2 figures for the $130?
    I have Roadking and he’s awesome but I have never found him “fun”. It’s certainly a very interesting transformation and is impressive in what it accomplishes in both modes but he’s definitely not playable. But there’s definite value there for what it does do.
    I’m also getting Legacy Motormaster and I’m looking forward to having a set of Stunticons that are fun and playable. I have a few sets and they all suit a purpose in my collection. But I can’t really just sit down with any of those sets and have some fun, meaning; swap between modes fairly quickly and easily, have fairly articulated & good looking bots and still have a pose-able & stable Combiner that doesn’t fall apart the moment you touch it. If the Legacy set fits that criteria for me, there’s plenty of value to that as well.

    Motormaster's $130 Australian at the moment, going to $160 AUD.

    you uh. Cannot get a MP FT Roadking for $150 Australian and certainly not shipped. More like, at least $300 Australian, and that's before shipping. Shipping'd be at least another $90 on that.

    What if you don't give a damn about 3P? Plus I can't get him for anything less than 230 in the US. Plus it's bigger than I'm looking for anyways. 3P isn't for everyone. I'm glad the option is there but no one NEEDS to have 3P in their collection, especially given the prices. Sometimes the price isn't worth the extra fiddlyness or complexity 3P brings. There's a reason I got out of 3P. I wasn't satisfied with the transformations at the prices. Too complex for their own good.

    "could have gotten"

    Also if Roadking were reissued today it would cost somewhere between 250 and 300 dollars.

    How far back are we talking? Because only a few Beast Wars guys were shelf warming in my area during Kingdom. Mainly Airazor.

    Well, I bought the figure, I like it. But I go to many Targets and I see them 5 deep with their companion Blaster gone.

    So part of it could be the difference in popularity with Blaster....

    This far back...

    After that, it was years before they revisited BW with Kingdom, infact it may have been the fan vote that brought BW back

    Bulkhead was an easy pass. No interest in him. I can see why he is shelfwarming. He doesn't look great.
