    As much as I'd like the Seacons that's too rich for my blood. Also out.

    I'm having a real hard time wrapping my head around justifying Turtler for $60 alone.

    Since I paid $500 to get Thunder Mayhem, $235 for a combiner who is being released in pieces (making it more affordable long term) doesn't seem that horrible to me. It's not ideal ($100 would have been an amazing price) but it's something I can live with, especially considering the extensive retoolings. Plus, you just know that a lot of people will only jump on the bandwagon when the last of the limbs get released and by then, chances are that the first two won't be available. That or they'll be discounted all to hell. But I can't recall a Takara combiner lowering significantly in price since release, only the Hasbro ones (but correct me if I'm wrong).

    I was thinking the same thing, but for me I just let go of past pricing and just accept it. I am a happier collector because of it, but that's just me. :p 

    But yeah, but when Takara Legends was still a thing, LG-Legends Voyagers were 49.99 and deluxes were 39.99... Seacons are technically Takara Tomy Mall exclusives, or is being treated as such.

    So the first Seacons will run you $95 on 1/25/2020... Then I'm guessing the remaining four will come out in pairs like in say, April and June at $70 a pop. So it's split up in three easy payments and you have time to budget. :p 

    Finally, $235 in the bigger picture of most people's collecting habits is nothing really. You already blew $80 on Jetfire, and those deluxes add up, did you really need those 3x Refraktors and 2x Brunts, and why do you keep buying repaints? And I know you are all working on ROTF Devastator. :p :confused:

    The bottom of my Detolf has been empty for far too long with the hopes these would see production one day

    Yeah I get what you are saying and DO appreciate that they are split up and not a box set...however Im looking at all the preorders we have been hit with in the last 30 days and its making me weary. Primarily the preauthorization charges tying up my money now even if only for a few days before it falls off and the actual charge doesnt hit for several months.

    Preordered both. Cut off date is 8/27, Unicron 8/31. Yeeeeeah. I don’t see Unicron getting backed by then.

    Maybe, maybe not. One thing to note, a lot of other retailers are collecting preorders for Unicron independently as well and will likely submit their "order" to Haslab close to the 31st. Thus, you can expect large chunks to appear in the midnight hour. Whether or not it will inevitably be enough, who knows

    Careful not to sound TOO casual about the price hike. Complacency is what allows corporations to keep jacking up prices. As much as I like King Poseidon, I can't help but hope sales suffer enough that TakaraHasbro have to lower future prices.

    Except, per usual, the text is generic, Evergreen, while the customers are older fans. In other words, the guy who wrote that text has nothing to do with Pulse, me thinks. It was copied/pasted from some other Hasbro marketing text.
    That is both horrible and awesome. :lol  Cause I'd seriously leap out of my skin if anyone made that sound near me... :eek:

    I’m just shocked by the price. Turtler should be $40 and skalor $25.

    These are heavy retools. A bunch of new parts as well. These are worth the price.
