    Don’t know how often it must be stated on these boards and elsewhere until it finally sinks in, but Hasbro is not charging $100 more for the Seacons than they normally would be, because THEY’RE NOT HASBRO’S PRODUCTS.

    Takara-Tomy is releasing the Seacons; Hasbro is simply serving as one of many distributors.

    I mean...I don't care? I'm literally in this hobbybto satisfy myself first and foremost and Hasbro is giving me what I want without charging me an a and a leg like what 3P does. You seem to bitch so much about price but I mean...damn dude. I'm literally here to just painlessly get my perfect "Neo G1" collection, not wax philosophy about prices and values. I just want my Terrorcons and Seacons and shit.

    It isn't like I don't care about value too. I took issue with Haslab Unicron until extras were revealed that made me feel better about it but even then I didn't make such a big deal about it. Said my piece and moved on.

    I honestly don't care about people's issues with pricing. I'm not in this hobby for others. I'm Numero uno where collecting is concerned.

    I actually count on CHUG being a vast improvement over G1 figures. And when they don't....

    Well, G1 Predaking and Skylynx are still my collections defaults ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.

    .....I think you're taking my comments the wrong way. Sometimes we can tell when HasTak has the game fixed. Doesn't stop me from playing when it's convenient. So feel free to do what works for you.

    Give it Trenchfoot from the G2 Sideswipe set if you have it, it's close enough to Pinpointer.

    Oh I see! I wondered why I felt so fine with this Apeface while other versions annoyed me. He DOESN'T have an ape snoot in the back! Only the visor and a patch of robot mush!
    Weird thing is I never minded Snapdragon's headmaster wearing a dragon head like a poncho, I don't even see it most of the time.

    When you open up about "that's how Hasbro gets you" and then proceed to complain about Deacon prices again in direct reply to me what am I supposed to take from this? That somehow I am doing wrong?

    As I said. Whatever issues, ethical or moral problems you may have, I don't give a crap. I only want to get the characters I want and enjoy them.

    Apeface looks like he's made outta fake fingernails. That pearly ivory plastic looks cheap.

    Dude, calm down or take a damn Midol or something.... I was agreeing with you, not shaming you.

    The battle damage on Ape Face isn’t bad IMHO, and sticks with the design aesthetic for the whole line.

    Now that weird pearlescent white plastic on the other hand is just weird. I don’t mind pearlescent plastic outright, in fact I usually like it. Here though it doesn’t look good IMHO.

    Yeah, these pics some how have turned me off to Apeface. I'll still get him and he might surprise me once he's in my hands but he also might just stay in bot mode forever.

    It is funny how well loved figures are never credited to Hasbro but the ones people are unhappy with the decos/design sure get attributed to the Hasbros. Just a funny observation that gets Made All The Time.

    Takara Stockholm Syndrome

    There seem to be many patients on these boards.
    They also seem to be suffering with osteoarthritis or lupus.

    Apeface looks great! I can’t wait to put him with my other Legends Headmasters.

    Crosshairs looks good too for a mostly repaint. Now bring on Snapdragon, Pointblank, and Sureshot!

    These micromaster combiners look wonderful but are they going to continue and make more? If you can\'t mix and match, there isn\'t much a point in getting this one.
