Megatron Wolf wrote:so why are these $15 when theyre not bigger or more complicated or have more detail than TFPrime figures? How does hasbro justify the price increase for these guys? Im sorry but im not paying $17(including tax) for a deluxe no matter what its from or who it is. Is this what we get for being loyal to hasbro all these years, smaller figures and outrageous prices? Its one thing to make figures smaller but keep the damn price & quality the same. Alot of people arent willing to pay or cant pay $13 for a prime deluxe what makes them think they'll pay $15 for a generations when theres nothing special about them. The last wave of generations werent even $15 they were $13 and they were bigger & of better quality than DOTM, TFPRIME, this wave of generations and they came out when the economy was shit just like it is now. Sorry about the rant but what hasbros doing is uncalled for and just not fair to consumers especially those who are falling on hard times.


Lol i would pay that much for a character i love from a game thats great.
Wanna hear something worse? the target closest to my house has dotm deluxe jolt for 30$. And mudflap for 16.99. But the tf prime toys are priced right ironically

I remember not too long ago Target (temporarily) bumped prices for DotM Deluxes to $30! Then put them "on sale" for ~$16 IIRC. A mere $2 increase doesn't look so bad compared to that. :lol:

Anyways, can't wait to find these guys.

I have been feeling the same way a bit myself. I bundled FOC Optimus, and Jazz with my Breakdown from BBTS. I didn't add Shockwave just because I am going to try to find him at retail. I figure it will work out, but at least it's just one figure to look for instead of 3.

I also saved myself the pain of finding all 5 figures for FOC Bruticus and just preordered mine, as well as the Amazon set too.

At a certain point the time and gas saved not hunting all over the place makes up for the price difference in most cases.

I am thinking the same thing. So, for FOC OP, Jazz and Soundwave on BBTS is $47.99 + $8.29 shipping (at least to GA). That comes to a total of $56.28.

If I buy these at Target, Wally World or TRU they will cost $14.99 each plus 7% tax. This total comes to $48.12. This is only a difference of $8.16 which is only $2.72 per figure.

I've already been to 2 Targets, Wal-Mart and TRU. So, this may be worth it to save the time and gas, especially since I have seen no sign of them even making room for the Generations line.

However, part of me does enjoy the hunt, but...

Just picked them up! The two targets in my area that it listed online as having them did! The first target only had Op and Jazz and the 2nd I just asked for two Shockwaves if they had them and the guy brought them out! Yay! I'm sure they probably had more Op and Jazz at the last Target I was at, didn't ask, one the guys said they aren't supposed to be out on the shelf for 2 more weeks, hence the clearance, glad I won't have too look for these guys now, Shockwave is awesome but smaller and they were 14.99 at my Targets too, but to me they were worth it, especially having a classics Shockwave!!! :KREMZEEK:Image

My two cents now that I've had some time with them, Shockwave is more solid feeling than I imagined him being, much better than PRID Soundwave(who I returned),size was what was expected from pics but good mold detail and a few nice paint aps, Jazz looks nice scale-wise next to WFC Op, decent figure but a little loose feeling and limited leg movement, nice head sculpt.

I'm aware of that, here's a G1 scale chart that illustrates it:

Image

My sense of how these neo-classics figures should scale comes directly from their G1 toys:

Flawed logic perhaps, but I have a feeling I'm not the only one who feels this way. Besides can we really trust the cartoon................ :D

I just went to a local Target because it showed the listing in the online tool provided in this post. However, the ones they found (after asking them to go to the back to get it) were old Generation toys (like Wheeljack). So beware, don't travel too far for these yet, the listing may be for old Generations stock they have left over and not the newer ones.

Hopefully none of you guys will get the same disappointment as me :sad:

he is a lot smaller, and "flimsier" than i expected. Like his joints seem weak to me, makes me cautious when transforming. I hope they release bigger stronger versions soon

found Prime and Jazz at a local RI TRU
15 bucks a pop but...

i had saved a 10 giftcard and a 10 coupon
so i paid 12.08 after tax for the pair
way more comfortable at that price than than 32 it started off as

i am sure Shockers will cost me dear in gas though, once he pops up on my radar
