I don't have Steelcore (yet) but don't want him or Broadside bad enough to sign up for FPC just for the 'privilege' of buying their products. If this stuff starts showing up on BBTS, I'll bite, if not, then FP won't see my wallet open, even if it means I have to pass up Steelcore, Broadside and the Stunticons.
Yes, this pretty much sums up my reaction too. With the increased costs associated with Hasbro stuff at Target and Walmart, the struggling economy, and so many desirable third party products out there, choices will have to be made. I have a huge amount of respect for what FP did for the Tsunami victims in offering a free targetmaster for a donation (it certainly got my lazy butt off the couch to make the donation I tend to have the intention to do but rarely follow through on). I'd really like to support them. But I don't have that endless pot of money. FPC Herc set me back for a while. I really, really would like to have Broadside, but Steelcore doesn't intrest me that much and I already have Defender. I love FP stuff and can't wait for finally having a decent Stunticons set. But if they continue to only offer stuff through their core site, especially in bundles like this, and not through general retailers like BBTS, I might have to quit these third party products. Or maybe shift and buy Uranus or the not-Predacons.
Just have to make some hard choices now... Maybe I should sell off my movie collection...
