    I'll judge the value for money once I get it.

    Always been one I was going to pick up regardless. If it isn't good for the price they won't convince me to get any future dynos.

    Alright, I can't even see your original comment anymore so there's really no point in me saying anything else.

    Apology accepted.

    My apologies in turn if I came off as persnickety... I'm just tired of people blaming one or another 3P company for the price increases when that's the trend in the entire market. Nobody is lowering prices.

    Also, I agree that 3Ps changing prices after they have been announced is shitty. It's unfair to collectors who have to actually create a budget which then needs to be changed. I budget my collecting but another $20 is far from sinking the ship. Still, I know this isn't the case for everyone.

    This is all part of their plan to rake in money just to subsequently reveal a MTMTE retool right after

    So...what is "bruised fee-fees"? What does that mean?

    Also. You're really living up to your "Fanatic" moniker. You seem really highly strung, possibly unstable. Have a good one :)

    I think you know exactly what it means.

    Lmao. Great. So you've realized that you were wrong and you're buggering off. Good! See ya! I knew you wouldn't have an actual argument. Facts are tough. :rolleyes:

    Pages 42 and 45 have size discussion and pics. Maybe 11 inches in bot mode?

    MP Grimlock was 100 bucks. This is clearly overpriced.

    Exactly, and FT Grinder was first released in January 2017. I mean, I can pick and choose prices I like and complain. Got a problem ? ;)

    I do when you compare prices from 2008 to 2021. Like Inflation, increased parts and different materials, ONTOP of smaller production runs resulting in higher manufacturing and material costs are a thing at all.
