    I do want to get this guy if the price is decent but then I’d also want a dr egg and I’m very on the fence whether that would be even remotely close to value for me. Kind of both or none for me

    Looks good and wouldn’t mind adding it to my post-movie shelf, but after the pricing of Dr. Egg... I got the egg and it’s a decent figure but definitely overpriced and knowing how much I paid for it left a bit of a bad taste in my mouth. Likes others I would have gladly bought 3 if the pricing had been more reasonable. The same is true here: I’d like to get 2, but if the price it too high I’ll just skip it altogether.

    Me too. Depending on price I may wait on this one. I bought Dr Egg but a few months after TFSOURCE had him for $125. If this is priced similarly to Egg then I'm gonna hold off.

    Yay!

    This was the only reason I bought Dr. Egg. (although I have to admit his shelf presence is much stronger than pictures had me expecting) But I was completely fine with my custom painted Hastak. But figured this guy probably wouldn't look great next to Hastak. Hopefully MP sized Sharkticons are coming as well.

    I was told he will be cheaper than Dr. Egg.

    Yeah Dr Egg at $175 was not worth it, Dr Egg at $100 is pretty alright, he does have great shelf presence.

    $170 compared to Dr. Egg's $175. :p 

    Kidding of course, glad to hear a price cut is coming!

    I hope so. These look fantastic, but I didn't go in on Dr. Egg simply due to the price. Bad luck this coming out at the same time Hasbro did their best Quintessons ever, and at only $30.
    If Le Poulpe stays reasonably priced then I'll pick one up for sure.

    Well, the final pictures should be coming soon. I've seen a video of the lights and mouth movement!

    Pretty cool!

    How's that for a teaser...

    $250 and wirelessly connects with Dr Egg to recreate the famous movie scenes - but without the most iconic sayings!

    Special bonus: explodes like a claymore mine if charged with the wrong connector.
