You don't mean to offend anyone but then go on to say anyone that doesnt agree with the price are cheap and should shut up and go play with Hasbro's garbage.
I don't appreciate being called cheap after I just spent 1400.00 on a MISB Optimus Prime.
When was the last time you can say you spent that much on a figure?
Everyone is entitled to their opinion and the buttheads on here that get their self worth by bad mouthing those that are just expressing themselfs seem to make up to large a percentage of this site lately. (Hence why I rarely pay it any mind..)
"My opinion", is they should have left the size alone", and because they make them an half inch taller doesn't justify increasing the price 120%.
Thats my 2 cents... Take it or leave it, either way..
"Can't we all just get along??"

Don't be a tool. These are nearly twice the price of the previous two figures. You can't debate that. I buy third party stuff pretty often too but the precedence was set by the previous figures. These are hardly marvels of engineering. So why the price hike? It can not possibly cost twice as much to produce these as before. That price is absurd.
As far as the whole “felicitous person” argument, I think some people are trying to read between the lines of my statement because they got offended. I mean no disrespect to anyone, but people who complain about spending $34 are cheap in my opinion. As pointed out earlier, 30 bucks is the going rate for an upgrade set that consists of a head and 2 guns. So $34 is not a bad price for a nearly scout sized figure. What did many people pay for RTS Windcharger when it was scarce? $40-60, right? Third party collecting is an expensive part of this hobby, and those who legitimately can’t afford it should stick to buying Hasbro products and refrain from complaining about 3rd party prices. I’m not saying that all I-Gear items are fairly priced. But I do believe these are. Don’t get mad because Huffer and Seaspray were cheaper. We just got lucky with the first two. That’s the bottom line.
