    it’s because the figures are higher quality now. better transformations, more accurate, more accessories

    Its nice to see the Philippines looking so clear! Tagaytay is beautiful. So does anyone notice that Starscream and Ss-5 Prime have been seemingly around for forever at Amazon? I really hope that during this live action drought that some waves restock. Would like to get another Jazz Scrapmetal and Shockwave (who has sold out at most places now).

    Pragmatically speaking, I've seen enough sales and discounts online to think you might as well wait and save at least a few bucks, especially since SS isn't as a strong seller as WFC.

    Granted I've also seen where the aftermarket can go, so I can understand how people think MSRP is a good price.

    Yeah, I've learned to preorder figures that are needs for my collection after seeing how distribution works out sometimes. I'm so glad I preordered DOTM Prime, I think I only saw it in stores once.

    Plus rising inflation and material prices over time. Not only has the Deluxe figure price increased, but so has beer and other essential items.

    I went outside. Are you guys proud of me?
    No, I just want to play with cool toys, and I think Firage looks cool. I just want him to not be as tall as Optimus.
    Much agreemented.

    what dinobot do guys they’re gonna make next?
    • Slug
    • Strafe
    • Scorn
    and after the slug, strafe and scorn do you guys think we’ll get snarl, slog and slash even tho they weren’t in AOE or TLK?

    i think we’ll get scorn then strafe then slug. scorn seems to be the second most popular behind grimlock but he’s obviously gonna be the first in almost every continuity.

    Unlikely, but I'm hopeful.
    There's no need to quote your own post. Just edit your previous post. :)

    No, that's probably a mod merging your posts.

    I think Scorn is the next likely dinobot leader as you could probably remold Grimlock into it or they just might make a new mold entirely for him. I think Slug and Strafe will be Voyagers though you can make the argument that Slug could be a leader. I highly doubt we'll see the toyline exclusive dinobots made into SS figures.

    SS doesn’t really reuse molds except figures like bumblebee that only exist to fill out the line and make some quick sales and some other people exceptions like drift and the same character in different movies/versions

    Well, this took an ungodly length of time to set up.
