The bundle is just way for them to help out the other fans that haven't had their hands on SC and/or Defender yet. Hang tight.
Lol... it's a little more than that & it's obvious. This is the FIRST release of Assaulter... the ONLY current order. It's all a bit shady & I can't say I blame them... I'm sure they just have some stock of Defender to get rid of & this is a very clever way to push it on people that barely want it. I personally hate the figure... but still find myself tempted because Steelcore was so awesome I wouldn't mind owning a second. Unfortunately... that'd mean me selling a Defender on eBay & I'm just not sure I can do that without feeling guilty for selling someone a crappy figure for a lot of money.
Personally, $250 isn't that great of a deal for these 3. Steelcore was $60, Assaulter has been rumored to be $80-$90... that leaves you with a $90-$100 figure (Defender), whose smaller than Steelcore and can't stand up without assistance from City Commander's BFG in his ass.
Just feels like they're playing mind-games with they way they're releasing things... I don't like it at all. This isn't supposed to be a frickin' game of poker... just sell your damn toys already. Happy thoughts...
