    I'm thinking the US price will be $65 going by the UK price. All they seem to do is change the currency symbol when it comes to Transformers in the UK.

    The only figure I want out of this set is G2 Sideswipe, so at £65, I guess I'll be passing.

    $50 US seems a bit much.
    ... no the price is higher because it's a lower production run, witch means lower return on money spent to make the toys in the set.
    If it's $50 US it should.

    2x deluxes at $20 plus 1x battlemaster at $5 is $45 and add in average markup for exclusives and you get $50, its really not that high

    2 deluxes at US $20 plus a $6 target- I mean battle master =$46 MINIMUM. I'd say $50 is reasonable for extra paint. Maybe even $55.
    (I mean $50 -$55 TOTAL PRICE, not additional markup for paint)

    Oh Crap!  I was only hoping for G2 Sideswipe to be release separate not part of this pack release. 

    I hate the Slamdance release and have no need for it.  The rest yes!

    Sigh.....

    All over this. Looks great. Really want that SS recolor, and the rest is a bonus.

    Hasbro marketing: "how can we reuse the skytread mold?"
    "Make him slamdance?"
    "But no one will buy him since the colors are flipped and he doesn't have the 3rd tape modes"
    "Let's box him with a repaint EVERYONE will want!"

    I really like the Skytread mold so I\'m looking forward to  Slamdance.  I\'ll probably be picking this set up

    That's how they got me to buy Nautica (I wanted Laser OP and Quickswitch and the clone), Magnus Prime and Metalhawk (I wanted the clone and Tidal Wave). They've been doing stuff like this forever.

    What's funny is it was the opposite for me. And I ended up scoring both Nautica and Magnus for "cost" from the same person. And now I've got God Ginrai! :) 

    It's also funny because I seem to be in the minority here. "Everybody" is excited about G2 Sideswipe while I'm hear wishing that Slamdance was even slightly retooled.

    I wish Sideswipe's rocket launcher thing was G2 blue and green but beggars can't be choosers I suppose.

    I’m getting this. Need g2 sideswipe and I love the flywheels mold.

    Do wish the colors were inverted on slamdance though, looks like he’s wearing warpath’s legs

    I love everything about this set. Skytread's mold looked great but I don't care for the colours and I was on the fence with Sideswipe's default colours whereas both of these versions look fantastic! The Battlemaster looks to be the icing on the cake!

    Maybe I'll get lucky with the inevitable upgrade kit that gets made for him will include a new head then lol

    My guess? Just an early release in a nicer box, maybe an extra thing?
    Last year we got Throne Of The Primes which was a nice surprise. And then there was that strange thing with the Bumblebee and the tapes at the show and another Bumblebee and some other tapes on Entertainment Earth?
    Granted the Throne got a Japanese release, as did the Amazon Punch and Repugnus/HTS Grotusque...
    My guess is Pulse will have everything this year with maybe a weird thing with EE again.

    These are most likely going to be Amazon exclusives. For an SDCC exclusive, this set is not "special" enough.

    Not sure about Transformers, but in most other things, bundle deals are usually cheaper than buying individually. I wouldn't think this would be over $40. The battlemaster is probably a free throw-in to sweeten the deal.
