    More than just one mold was import exclusive, doesn’t the set also have a handful of arms microns?

    Yep, I wonder why they called it a 5-figure set when they could have technically sold it as 11

    I thought those went with Megatron though.

    Although yes, now I think about it, one of them was obviously Bulkheads!

    The megatron/breakdown/Silas breakdown/swerve mold had a few arms microns included on each release, but each release aside from cybertrons most wanted megatron only came with a single one. Plus there’s the targetmaster that originally came with rts cyclonus, it really is like 11 figures in total

    Thanks, didn't know all of that! I wasn't as into collecting when Prime came out. Although Prime is what really brought me into this again!

    breakdown had a rhino hammer, silas breakdown had one that looked sorta like a double bladed chainsaw and swerve had a humanoid one that turned into something that looked like a concrete saw

    $16 for Deluxes.
    The Most Wanted set has 2 Deluxes, 2 Voyagers, and 1 Pretender/Legends combo, which I'm going to put at a Voyager price point for the sake of this argument.
    If Deluxes are $16, and Voyagers are $25, that puts this set at ($16x2)+($25x3) = $107 (and that's not counting the Arms Microns as separate).

    So I wouldn't say you're paying $6 more, I'd say you're saving $27!

    Well, I'm not going to argue with YOU about mathematics, lol ! Although I would say that 86-107 = a saving of 21 ;)

    Ah, I took the $80 away from the $107 rather than subtracting $86. Good catch!
    (Although you meant "107-86" in your equation above :p )

    Factor in shipping, though. It's a bit more.

    I wouldn't say people are overpaying now, necessarily, if there are figures you REALLY want. Walmart just restocked Slugslinger in big numbers for some reason where I live at under $15 and I'd say my desire for any of these figures doesn't really exceed that. Cool character. A bit obscure.

    IF I can get a Ramjet for under $20 shipped, I will mainly because I'd like to have a few more heralds of Unicron and I doubt we'll see him again for a long time. But I think he'll need to go down to $4 before that happens.

    I've paid more for exclusives in the past. (I have almost every G2 homage since 2007 but I may be selling some off soon.) I would have paid for Lifeline a couple of weeks ago. None of these exclusives are anything I'd pay above retail for, including shipping. If somebody else will? Good for Funpub. I hope there's at least 1 Ramjet left when 90% hits.

    I would consider their Ramjet, just because he's smaller, but then I'd need to sell the original. I've got a shelf of Unicron's minions, but don't need two of the same character...

    Same issue.

    Does anyone know what pins are used for the Orion Pax mold?

    I've been using these :

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00B3MFRRK/ref=ya_aw_oh_bia_dp?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    They're too long for most cases so you'll need to cut them down (I'm waiting on a saw to do this myself, I'll let you know how it goes) and they are slightly too short to be ideal in one usage but they seem to be holding in ok for now. I may end up removing the ones I have, cutting two up into the correct combined length and then inserting one after the other.

    So if you can find slightly longer ones, please let me know! Also I'm looking for the flat headed pins for the wheels. Current plan is to screw those in place with small screws but I'd rather use pins if possible. Do it right!

    Why not buy half a dozen and give them to the original so he can have his own set of (miniature mimeographed) minions? ;)
