    As pointed out by another poster, because this is such a limited run it takes more money just to make each piece. And seeing how large and complex this piece is, combined with the fact it will be fully painted and come with a few nice little extras, it's really not hard to see why this set is so expensive.

    I look forward to seeing more pics of this guy.

    I can't wait to get this piece. It's looking better everytime something new surfaces about it.

    I don't care how much they charge as long as they make new stuff in the future. I am willing to pay for their funding.

    They are the same people who made the cliffjumper kit but not the coronation set.

    As a collector of some official exclusive stuff AND some fan made garage kit stuff, I'd say $76 is a great price for this. Can't wait to get it.

    I think there will be two waves of people complaining about the price. The first wave is right now. The second wave is when these sets are sold out and you find them up on ebay for $200-250.

    I preordered mine the first day you could. That $76 price tag is VERY generous of them. I also plan on preordering their Prime trailer that they also have in development the first chance I get.

    Meh, not overly thrilled about the giant arms and such compared to the smaller body. The BFG isn't that pretty either. nice colours, though, but big pass.

    I'm curious to see what they're gonna roll out with AFTER this and the Prime trailer. I remember hearing about upgrade kits for Grimlock and Rodimus. But aside from a sword for Grimlock not sure what either of those would be.

    I really want them to make some damn hands for the Energon combiners. Superion Mostly. And a new head! Yeah.... that would rule ass.

    I'm with you! I thought they were smoking crack when I saw the price.

    $76.00 is EXTREAMLY reasonable considering it's limited. I missed out on the Cliffjumper upgrade when people were supposedly ordering them for $30.00, now you can't find that kit for under $250 on Ebay.

    This is quite Awesome. And yes I agree that the inclusion of the missile launchers on the shoulders would have been a sweet touch, I must say that it looks perfectly fine without them. Poseable fingers (like ani starscream) would have been nice for a figure this size too, but thats just nit picking.
    The only thing that has me slightly worried is how it will affect the possibility of the figure. It looks like the hip attachment cuts off a fair amount of forward/backward movement, but its hard to tell with the images. But yeah, this thing is freakin awesome and I am so glad I preordered it.

    Now all I need is a magnus.... TO EBAY! :p

    Holeee crap, that looks awesome.

    I'm glad I've got one on preorder as well. Having said that, has anyone got confirmation from TFSource yet?
