    As a non-premium member, I'm very happy Volcanicus didn't sell out and I was able to pick one up. Threw in a Studio Series Devastator box set too. Gonna be a huge box full of combining goodness!

    I might be in the minority but. IMHO potp figures look better although not cartoon accurate, are smaller and combined although not cartoon accurate.

    These take up so much space. But if you get 5 wfc dinobots that's 5× 50 = $250. So potps are cheaper in the short run.

    yeah I just learned about it and it makes sense since my POs haven’t been filling much. Still waiting on things like Scourge and House of X legends. I have a 10+ year history with them and probably close to 10k in business over that time. But I do cancel pre-orders often, and also cancel in stock stuff semi regularly... like, something comes in stock and I cancel it that same day lol.

    I ordered 5 mins after it dropped. Paid sane price.

    I think they meant to type "same price." (Funny how one letter completely reverses the meaning of the statement)

    Pulse sold out of what I wanted (Wreck-gar, couple Gnaws, and Slug), so I got them from BBTS instead. A couple dollars more, but not a big deal, they don't seem to mark them up as much as they used to and I've never not gotten something from them, which is more than I can say for Target and Amazon.

    BBTS also had listings for the whole wave and just listed part of it as "secret figures". Is there still more stuff to be revealed?

    There are some new Bayverse figures in this wave that weren't officially revealed today. Leader Grindor, Voyager BB Thrust, Deluxe Jolt, and Deluxe RotF Bumblebee.

    That's sketchy as all hell. I wonder if mine are intact...

    So it looks like they left my Megatron alone. As for Starscream, I received my order confirmation from Pulse at 10:10AM PDT and the email shows the 38.99 price as well, so I probably didn't get my order in before they adjusted it. But we're definitely seeing them put the screws on us here, aren't we? These are standard Voyagers with just a few extra pieces, probably 1 sprue mold to make 8 swords for 8 Starscreams and maybe 1 sprue for 3 Megatrons (he has a few larger accessories), plus the repaint.

    No problem! That probably means you got mine. I just don't have the correct combination of money and desire to buy this thing. I'm done for a while, need to just focus on enjoying my collection and paying for my existing preorders, lol.

    Starscream's price was never adjusted, it was $38.99 from the moment he went up. Pulse also does not retroactively correct previous order prices, my SG Megatron orders are still sitting at $29.99 for both. You're also not accounting for the comic in the higher price of the SG figures.

    Volcanicus looks cool and but I’m all in on Leader Class Dinos. I bought Slag, one Wreck-Gar (holding out for Junkyard to troop build), and two Gnaws on Pulse and two on bbts. TEMPTED by SG Starscream as a Seeker Troop builder. pass on Pf but I like those figures.

    wait... there was a pricing error screamer? i ordered in the first 10 minutes and didnt see any change, other than the crotch kick of these new price points

    EDIT** I assume you were referring to the price increase in general for the voyager and not a pricing mistake that was later corrected.

    There's been much confusion around this point. Price went up relative to SG Megatron, which was 36.99 (which in itself was already a price bump). SG Starscream was 38.99 from the start today.

    Perhaps because it's not a selling point to me. Much like the sticker cards in Kingdom boxes, it's just wasted money, dunnage.

    Hopefully those who don't want the comics can sell them. There is a chance there are TF comic fans out there that are not interested in the figures.

    I would rather they didn't include the comic from that point of view.

    May not be a selling point for you but it does absolutely contribute to the $7 upcharge the SG figures have

    You might rather that, but the fact is that the comic is included, and it plays into the cost. Honestly it's smart of them to include the comics because not many people are well versed in SG fiction, this is a good way to intro people to the concept
