Is it just me or should have the simplified line been released in time for Christmas? These would've been perfect for holiday purchasing?

I wouldn't get your shorts in a bunch just yet. This is ONE online retailer. Any Wal-Mart or Target I've checked recently has them for $9.99 or less.

Who cares what they cost elsewhere? The majority of us are in the US and $14.99 for a deluxe is ridiculous.

Furthermore, using your slur to insult Americans in general just because you are taxed out the rear in Europe and pay more for toys is pretty low.

HTS might be the only place to score Generations figures after TF4 and the new cartoon comes out. With that said you are correct about the big box store prices. And we all know when the movie comes out they will be about that price as the movie lines will cause much more demand for the line. Which in time passed has kept the deluxe price right around what you said.

Don't get your panties in a bunch.

And you don't help your case any by not caring where the figures cost elsewhere in the world - self-centered much?

Besides, sadly 'muricans is an appropriate slur b/c we got A LOT of ignoramuses here.

I think those were Christmas prices. It's likely the big box retailers will raise them up again, if they haven't already.

Not really, you're just being extra-sensitive about it.

American fans caring or not caring about what you pay doesn't affect or change your prices and never will. Those of us that are sympathetic will be and often state our sympathies, but it doesn't help us be sympathetic when you RoW members are in every thread complaining, griping, and jumping down our throats about us kvetching over our own prices here.

We have every right to complain about what we pay, just as you have every right to complain that your prices are even higher, but if you want Americans to care, stop acting like we're spoiled for doing exactly what you're doing just because we pay less. We don't control your prices(much less our own) and we can't change any of it.

We can only really complain about what WE experience, anything else is disingenuous. Those that don't care what you pay do so because it's not something they need to worry about. We all have enough in our lives to worry about without adding "Man, this price sucks, I wonder how much more it sucks for so-and-so because they're somewhere else".

I mean, we can talk unfair to other countries in hobbies, like Games Workshop banning intercontinental sales of their products for Australian so that their forced to pay 3x as much as RoW and not given the chance to import from the US or UK for the cheaper price.

Majority of the time, I'm very empathetic to my RoW comrades and try to help them out when I can(including in the past eating the entirety of the shipping cost for friends on wargame boards to get them items that never made it over there).

However, the amount of complaining about American vs RoW prices(to the point where it's brought up in ANY thread where price is mentioned) in the past couple weeks is getting very tiring(not just here, it's something I'mm seeing very regularyl on several boards for various hobbies lately), especially as it's over things no one on the boards can control. In addition, the tone of Joetx's post made it one that needed to be addressed.

Guys. Just stop. I don't have the patience for this today. Do not derail another news thread with a "mine's bigger" contest. Snap out of it, right now.

Noctorro, quit being offensive.
Shickbkast2, you've been a rabblerouser in the past.

Both of you stop it.

Primeultimus, we'll get on it.

Hmmm...odd that Skidz isn't listed on there at all. He was released in the same wave as Goldfire Bumblebee, right? I don't think he sold out already, as the listing would still be there, just marked as out of stock. Although, deluxe BH Prowl is completely missing now too. I had been hoping he'd come back in stock, as I have yet to see that wave ANYWHERE in my area.

I wonder if these two "simplified" BH voyagers and the four "simplified" BH deluxes will be a one off thing for the end of the Prime toyline, or if we'll see another assortment or two squeezed in before the new cartoon hits.

For that matter, I would really like to know if the new cartoon, although taking things in a much different direction in terms of tone as compared to Prime, will at least retain the same aesthetic. I was under the impression at first that Prime was the beginning of this new "modern/aligned" continuity for the brand. I expected that I would be building a brand new universe of related figures, but if I can't reasonably display the new cartoon line with Prime, I'll sell off my Prime FE/RiD/BH(PR) collection and be done with it, just like I sold off my movie figures after the let down that was the DotM toyline.

WFC was the beginning of the Aligned Continuity. The reason the Aligned games, cartoons, comics, etc. all have aesthetics from each other is because Hasbro doesn't give two cents about aesthetic consistency like we fans do. It's more of a fan concern than a company one.
