    Do you spend all your free time complaining?

    Planet X Grimlock is a completely new mold and different scale

    The new Occular Max Protectobots look pretty slick; But I definitely not getting them for awhile because if they have the same pricetags of the OC bruticus , than that's around 559.95 worth of toys

    You're ignoring inflation too. If I'm being generous, its more like 680 currently. And probus is now going for 190. Just a fair thing to think about

    Jesus H Christ. I’ve heard Ocular Max’s combaticons are really good , but 680$ for the whole set. I hope to god I can pick up the OC combaticons on black-friday / Cyber-monday

    I got there as volatus fraudo and impetus are 120 if you're lucky, incursus is 180, and if you're lucky, maybe only find probus for a good cost at 150
    They're great, but im waiting on probus. Hes either 160 or above. Its gotten annoying, especially because since this whole covid has basically made it impossible for my family to buy from China cause one of our family members is currently scared of everything. As a result I payed 150 for fraudo, and now refuse to buy probus. I'm waiting on a reissue, or the g2 repaint.

    Well when takara release a figure they'll sell hundreds of thousands more than likely (of just one figure). When fanstoys release a figure it's probably sold in the few thousands category.

    That right there is the difference. With the success of siege/SS right now, I doubt takara/hasbro give a crap what any third party is doing. Transformers as a brand hasn't been in such a good place in decades, thanks mainly to takara's design and Hasbro's fan communication.

    The idea of making a new torso figure kinda reminds me of that Bold forms Motormaster, hopefully this one won’t be disappointing

    Daaaamn Meteor!!! If this had been announced juuuust about 6mo earlier; this was perfect when only MP-11 was the main mold. OG Meteor was being considered until I saw the aftermarket prices. No way in hell I was paying that, and I feel bad for anyone who did! This would've been the perfect time to grab them.

    Overall, it's too late for this guy though. It's definitely good enough to earn it's fanbase, but MP52 does what this is attempting to do and more; with the exception of the waist swivel. Even price doesn't count as most scramble to replace the heads anyways, which adds it's own cost depending on which one you get; and now you can't xform the fig. Still stuck with baby hands (no holding Meg), no cluster bombs (or added cost), no jet effects (or added cost), no stand (or added cost), and the xformation of the rear tail fins.

    Again, great fig that more than holds it's own, but too little too late; unless the owner is already knee deep with this current collection.
