It's nice for novelty, but I've already got two perfectly good Prime Bumblebees and two perfectly good Prime Arcees. I don't need another of each and don't want a reason to buy another of each. Especially exclusive versions that were first made available months ago. I already went through that experience when Animated Shockwave unveiled his purple colors well after the purple exclusive redeco toy left the shelves of my local Target Stores. My wallet thanks this episode for not changing their color schemes to match those NYCC toys.Flashwave wrote:Anyone else bummed that Bumblebee isn't sporting his SDCC taxi logos?
I got my nycc set for $30 and my purple animated shockwave for $12 I never pay rediculous amounts for figures why do I always read how much someone's wallet got hurt
I missed out on purple Shockwave because I felt I did not need him since he was gray on the show. Then, come near the end of season 3, he done goes and switches from gray to purple on the show, well after the purple Target toys stop being sold in stores, thus requiring me to hunt it down online and pay secondary market prices for the guy.
I do not want to have to go through this again with the NYCC BB/Arcee set. Especially since it's the FE Arcee mold when I prefer the RID Arcee mold.
I got nycc set the day it came out but as for purple shockwave he is the last figure I bought for my animated set I have every retail figure except road buster ultra Magnus and I kick my self in the ass for not buying him when I saw him for $35 also I have all the Takara releases that the USA didn't get I just couldn't buy the botcon stuff it was to much and just repaints if they were new molds I would have jumped all over them
