Not a good way to run a line. I believe that if things dont soon change I will be forced to abandon this hobby as all the good feelings that It brought have been replaced with thoughts of "maybe next time" "thats unfortunate" "why?" or my least favorite "how much?!" sigh... Looks like I will have to shell out 300 for city commander after all...yay...
you could buy a new one, and the United Magnus, should be much less than $300. well, okay, not "much less" but enough to buy a deluxe and a happy meal or something.
Megs, I'm not sure why you keep going back to this $300 price point. Others have shown you that the City Commander set with the add-on pieces isn't marked up like the original run of it is. Assuming you're in the US, follow this link, look at the bottom right of the page where the vendor is helpful in suggesting buying this + the Asian exclusive UM = $219.94.http://tfsource.com/products/view/product_id/847/
Again, with the assumption you're in the US, shipping will be free if you choose this option. The completed Ultra Magnus will be roughly Ultra Class size and it's a damn good placement in someone's Classics collection. Just don't keep him posed with the BFG lifted it, it'll kill UM's arm joint.
Back on topic, no news yet regarding the FoC upgrade but considering the impish deluxe size of the OP/UM figure, I don't see this figure getting larger than Voyager. Still interested, but just because they haven't given an estimated release date doesn't mean the project has been abandoned.
