Just a quick question I had about collecting.
I'm trying to get the whole fall of cybertron toyline (minus sdcc Bruticus... 300$ I'll pass haha) and I've been browsing and it seems like Hasbrotoyshop has the combaticons priced lower than anywhere else.
Should I order them through Hasbrotoyshop? Or is there a chance that I could get them cheaper when they hit the shelves?
Just kind of worried because this is the first time I'm trying to collect the whole set of figures from a toyline.
I'll give you my opinion. If you really want these, then I would go ahead and buy them all off of HTS now. HTS is offering free shipping on orders over $50 for the time being. You'll still be charged tax but no shipping.
Pros to buying off HTS:
-No driving/gas for the hunt
-If they are all available, you can complete your Bruticus set (save gas $ again)
-HTS prices are the lowest you will see retail wise given the recent price increase ($14.99 compared with $15.89 or even $17 plus...see this thread http://www.seibertron.com/energonpub/wal-mart-price-hike-more-than-target-now-t88802.php
-Possibility of finding them cheaper at a later date (how much later, who knows)
-Waiting (patience usually
pays off, but you never know)
However, if you check BBTS or TFSource right now you can get FOC Optimus and Jazz for less than HTS ($8.99 on BBTS).
As an earlier post stated, if you see something you really want and can afford it, go ahead and buy it because you may not have the chance again. This is very true and has happened to me too many times. So, I would just ask yourself if you want these or if you really want these and go from there. Hope that helps.
