    Did a quick look at the dc comics app. Looks like single issues are running between $3.99 and $5.99. Not sure if print price is different or not.

    More than likely, it's definitely not the domestic version since that's only available through pulse

    If someone is friends with Coller on Twitter, ask him the color SG Jetfire's energy sword. Then a 3rd-party company could have one ready in time for when SG Jetfire ships.

    I wish Transformers box art looked more like this instead of the attempts at looking detailed and gritty that we've had since the Prime Wars trilogy.

    I'm actually surprise Sideswipe isn't one of the first wave of molds considering how much Hasbro loves using that mold - but I guess they had to balance out the cast with good guys/bad guys somewhat. I do wonder if Jetfire is a test if people are willing to buy bigger ticket SG stuff - because an SG Devastator would be awesome.

    Why does that look like Starscream is butt pounding Dragstrip while he is wearing welding glasses?

    Blurr and Goldbug have new heads which Sideswipe doesn’t need. Probably a requirement that both Deluxes had to have new heads.

    Only 91 huh? That's fair. Commanders are a big wallet bite to begin with.

    Baltmatrix is complaining that Jetfire doesn’t have a new head but since Shattered Glass Jetfire was repurposed from Dark Skyfire, I don’t think this new Jetfire needs a new head. Not all Shattered Glass toys require new heads.

    Especially considering the mold already has 2 faces as it is anyway with the masked and unmasked faces

    Most of the SG figures actually don't have new heads. Whether we count Optimus and Ratchet or not.

    Only Blurr and Goldbug have new heads, and with Blurr at the vary least I'm certain that head was tooled alongside the original. Possibly Goldbug too, but I wouldn't be surprised if his was new tooling.

    Megatron, Starscream, and Jetfire all don't have new heads. Granted Megatron and Starscream have new accessories, but for Jetfire they probably recognized that people wouldn't want to spend too much even with extra accessories.

    That's 3:2 between no new head to new head. 5:2 if we do decide to count Optimus and Ratchet.

    I wouldn’t want Shattered Glass Sideswipe to have a new head either. The Armada Wheeljack mold intentionally had a head based on G1 Sideswipe.

    I’d rather new remolding goes to those who need it since it’s impractical to give every repaint a new head.

    Honestly... A version of this^^^ would've been a way more interesting mold. One par with last years Skylynx (The only Commander class I've purchased).

    And would've likely sold more for $80+! But to those who love SG, enjoy.

    Agreed. Sometimes folks expect too much from cash grabs.

    He already has the face mask to make him "different" from the Siege figure if that's a necessity. Wouldn't take much to slap a few cannon ears on his head and call it a day. Plenty of model kits out there to use.

    As it is, he's already going to suit well with these guys:
