So you think they're going to remold the figure to remove the fold down wheels?
I watched RodimusPrimal rage about the scalpers.
I'm going to wait this out in the long run. Maybe Hasbro and IDW can bundle Gigawatt with the trade for the mini-series comics down the road.
pls tint the front windscreen to hide those ugly robot junk
I don't see car fans lining up for this one. There are plenty of BTTF replicas out there that carry the DeLorean licensing (Gigawatt doesn't) and look better than this one (the windshield is just an eyesore, it ruins the entire look of the toy).
This is, like, 10,000% better. From one simple change.
Better still, give the scalpers the bots with the visible ugly robot junk.
The problem with your choice in comparison, here, is that the Starscreams are different molds altogether. They share the same ideas in engineering, but neither of them is the same as the other. I get the point you're trying to make, but it's just not the best choice for comparison's sake. As for Gigawatt, if you want him to be a Voyager in your collection, go for it. The rest of us will recognize him as a Deluxe. These aren't supposed to scale with CHUG, but each other. The Delorean in Deluxe size pairs well with Ectotron in Voyager size.
But hey, you do you. *shrugs*
The only shoving their opinion anywhere, vehemently, is you. Sorry, calling it as it is. I do have to ask, though, is it really that important he be a Voyager to you? Deluxe isn't good enough? Even the price difference between the two reflects this size difference.
I mean, if he's too small for you, then skip 'em. If he's not, then buy him. That's all you can do.
Was there a price for Gigawatt or preorders up?
price was $30, further preorders won't go up till October 1 according to anything hasbro has said (though those may be in stock orders and not preorders for pulse on 10/1)
To the people who are price gouging on eBay please burn in hell
Part of me still wants to get this figure, but that alt mode windshield just ruins it for me.
I'd love to get it, but I'm not made of money.
Well im guessing this will be an EB games exclusive like Ectotron was. (Somebody keeps mentioning walmart) Either way, this will be the just like Ectotron, the ultimate impulse buy. And I guarantee that this is the type of impulse buy that will attract retro car fans and movie buffs. The type of people who dont go looking for toy cars online but when they see it in person they gotta have it because it takes them back to their childhood especially the box. If tgey sold this thing in a Seige style box, half the nostalgia would be flushed down the toilet. The only people who will buy it for the robot mode are people reading about it on TF fan sites.
Megamaid would have been too obvious, as it would be more a Spaceballs figure than a merging. Also Megamaid would be wayyy too big.
Tiberius Maximus When Hasbro?
It’s a deluxe, even the damn link to the product called it a deluxe, you are WRONG and that is fact
Totally agree with this rant.
I really don't like the fact that this seems like this is a gonna be a limited release
It’s a deluxe.
Come october it won’t be limited, this batch was supposed to be limited
You know, its interesting. I've been seeing commercials on YouTube for a BttF model car.
