    Where are people preordering? It’s not on BBTS. I hope they do a toy scheme repaint.

    I did ShowZ. Which will probably be $30+ cheaper than BBTS.

    You guys are preordering… do you have any idea when this is being released? Wrong thread, but same question for Newage Optimus?

    Well, usually once they show full pics, it's pretty close to release. Like a matter of weeks.

    Oof. I’d prepared myself and budgeted for something like this. Prices have been creeping up. Not a deal breaker for me but still, oof.

    Well..fart. Way way WAY too rich for my blood. I was ready to pay a lot, but not THAT much. That's more than some MPs. for a Legends. Yikes, New Age.

    these prices are just getting fucking insane. you cant even layout all the extra armor pieces to form a battle station or giant shoulder pads...o_O 

    but seriously this is definitely not a 100 plus bot. i dont even feel it should be over 80 max.

    motormaster was one of the few bots of late that definitely justified a hefty price tag.

    Hopefully the TCP price is wrong, because that price seems outlandish for a legends figure. $75 (from a US retailer) MAX.

    Yeah this is about what I was expecting it to cost. Maybe as high as $90. It's even harder for me to justify because I just spent $90 on Masterpiece Crosscut. A Legends figure shouldn't cost more than a Masterpiece figure unless it comes with something like Magic Square Motor Master's Masterpiece-sized trailer.

    The price for Megatron (2021 Reissue) is 79.99 over at TCP. And he doesn't come with a trailer.

    Edit: Not trying to justify the price. I think New Age prices went bonkers a long time ago.

    Checked my ShowZ pre-orders for Optimus and UM and they're not as wild of prices. $79 for Optimus and $87 for UM. Thank God.

    i guess they need to update the site with the new prices.

    because it still says unknown for price. i didnt know their preorder deposits allow you to see the final price. i learned something new today...thanks

    Yeah usually whenever I've seen a final price on my pre-order page, that means they have the price updated on the figure's page. Strange that they didn't do that this time around. No problem tho!

    Still bonkers, nonetheless. But... If we pay, they will keep increasing the prices.

    Edit: just paid for the preorder. I'm bonkers too...

    I have to say, four visible fists does not bother me nearly as much as two visible truck cabs.

    They would bother me even less than that, if NA kindly provided two simple flat white blocks to replace those fists with, in robot form.
    I mean, ok, partsforming... Heresy! But still, I wouldn't have complained one bit.
