    I think i've hit my limit lol. I love what XTB has been up to lately and I like Frankenstein but $130 for it is too much. LED eyes don't warrant the extra cost either. I hope they make too many so I can pick one up on sale later.

    Yep. Self destruct mode reactivated.

    Don't worry. Expect to see him discounted for $49.99 a year after its release. Hopefully this company will live long enough ti produce Runamuck and Runabout.

    Why do they insist upon doing dumb things with simple figures?

    We could produce the figure at $45 bucks if we just make a good action figure... or inflate the price by tacking on gimmicks no one really wants for something that will spend its life on a shelf.

    Wait, a 3D printed prototype revealed 3 full years ago, and it’s still another year away from release? :rolleyes:

    130?! That is alot. But i am still REALLY tempted. autobot x is like my favorite g1 charactor. I REALLY wish he came back in a second episode. If he is that expence i hope he has so many extra gizmos and parts that you can almost build a second figure.

    Preorder is up on bigbadtoystore.com. part of me wants to preoder now, but another wants to wait to see if it drops. I mean he is probably not a super popular character that they will sell out. Might even go on sale. What do you guys think? Also i have never bought masterpiece before, is this in that price range?

    I don't understand why anyone would get this one when the Blue Lobster one accomplishes the purpose. Maybe it will have a bit more articulation I suppose, but that's it.

    I do have him. But he is basically a brick. I personally like to fiddle with my transformers and other figures.
    That is the reason. Articulation is nice. Plus the blue lobster one is basically a statue and doesnt even have an interesting pose. I love him though since he is like the only figure of autobot x.

    Yup! I'd love to see this guy look like he is actual random parts stuck together over a cleaned up toon version despite the character being a toon original.

    Articulation is important when you're a transformer character that doesn't transform. Plus the Blue Lobster figure looks like a PVC shampoo bottle.
