    I saw it the last time it was in theaters with my son, was that five years ago? Wish I could do it again this year with him. I’m fully vaxxed but he’s too young & at risk, I live in a red area full of anti vaxx, anti mask, anti science lunatics so I’ll sit this one out & wait for the 40th. Thank God for the new 4K release!

    My parents are taking me to see the movie in theaters! The theaters have been near empty around here so no worries about going for me. Wish everyone who wants to go could without worrying though :(

    Put that money towards a new 4k TV or sound system. Safer too.

    I’ve got a good 4K tv & speakers & the new 4K release, but it’s still fun to watch it with a crowd who loves the movie as much as you, y’know? Hopefully for the 40th!

    This looks like a garbage remold of Titans Perceptor. Why is Hasbro shoveling old molds for $23 a pop???

    pretty sure producing the TR mold would actually cost MORE

    Yeah, you are right. It doesn't...

    Pffft.

    Im gonna assume you are just one of those Hasbro junkies who will shell out regardless of the product with that comment...I mean, look at it.

    No, it wouldn't'. The mold is the most expensive part of producing a Transformer. Do you have any clue how much one mold for one part costs? If you did, you wouldn't make ignorant comments. $100K, easy...per mold part.

    um you're the one saying two completely different toys are the same toy, my guy, maybe retire the whole "ignorant" schtick until this blows over

    (and setting up factories for more-complicated tooling and materials can absolutely add to the cost, just look at any reissue's price)

    I have a plastic factory and no, moulds don't cost that much.

    Also, this is not a retool at all. Just because toys use similar engineering it doesn't mean they're retools from each. Otherwise basically every car robot would be a retool from each other.

    It's an entirely new mold and really doesn't look like the TR mold except for them both being based on the same design

    I don't have a Perceptor in my lineup, and I've never seen either toy in person. But from the pic you posted, they look different enough that I don't believe it's just a simple retool of the old design. I can see quite a few differences between the two in those photos.

    Also, why are you so angry? Maybe step back from the internet for a bit. You're giving it WAY too much power over you if a toy or someone buying it makes you this upset.

    I see it, both transform into a red microscope. This must be the same base mold, just really, really heavily retooled, like 100% if I have to guess.
