It's 6 toys, as the seventh is a "bonus" piece. But I do agree that the pricing is not too shabby when you separate the items into their own categories.
I mean, lets say that each tape is $15 each. That is a $60 set right there. That is a really good price for a set of four tapes, especially when they are compared to the Encore sets.
And that least SG Soundwave and SG Blaster being $70 each. Which makes them a great price, taking into account that they are exclusive pieces.

Blaster is a lot bigger, so probably be double the price, and the cassettes in their Encore line haven't been cheap. Plus this set is in exclusive paint colours and may or may not have some kind of yellow thing that we've only seen artist's renditions of, so may be entirely fictional. Still, if I had the money, and actually wanted these things, I'd buy.
as they are though, it's only the tapes I'm even a little bit interested in, and I'd maybe stretch to 50 bucks for them.
Just take into account that these items are not Hasbro exclusives, but rather ones that are tied to Takara Tomy. So when it comes to pricing, items like this go by an import pricing and not a domestic pricing.
