    You see the WFC toys as being Cybertronian versions of characters who are known by their Earth mode?

    This is that in reverse - Blurr who is usually known for his Cybertronian mode now has an Earth mode.

    I easily enjoyed the IDW stuff more than the trilogy, I just treat them, as everyone should, as separate entitites

    I've handled the sg roddy. It is pretty good. Can't stand up to any real rough handling. The one I messed with had a stress crack on the wing. The paint on the head was not great.
    Other than that, good stuff. The car mode looked awesome. It will look fantastic in my Shadow Scythe armor.

    There was a point after botcon 2008 when the exclusives were fairly affordable. I remember picking up an extra set of the exclusives and then selling them off later without much of an increase in value.

    I wish I looked around earlier, it's hell to get SG Starscream and Prime these days. I also like Rodimus, but no way am I going to pay $500 for him.

    If wasn't always that price then it must be more expensive.

    Evil Spock would like a word with you ;)

    Evil alternate realities can make for compelling stories if framed well. Age of Apocalypse is in my opinion one of the best examples of the concept done right.

    Uh, no. There was a point in time ( a very LONG point in time) where you can get him for under 100.

    RE Prices-

    I don't give a hoot about SG, but I do like dark Convoys, so I nabbed SG Roddy within the first year after the set was released, I think I paid about $60-80 for him. Which at the time seemed pricey, but now it seems ridiculously cheap compared to the "going rate"

    But, OTOH I call the "Check COMPLETED listings, not asking prices" test. Scalper-asking-prices =/= true market value.

    Still need to grab me a K/O SG Prime though, it's a VERY nice deco.
