I suspect i'll suffer the same issue with the next wave and never see the rest of the team up here in Canada. If i have to buy the entire team online i'll be looking at well over 100 bucks for Abominus.

Why not just buy from a retailer like BBTS, CapturedPrey, etc...?

Agreed. I forgot about that option completely.

You forgot about the option of buying from a normal retailer? Not get enough sleep today? ;)

Hun-Gurrr was shortpacked in the only wave he was released in to date. As such most retailers don't sell him seperately, and those that do price him where it's better to do eBay.

I got my Hun-Gurr with Prowl and Soundwave from Big Bad Toystore, so I don't know a good place to get him on his own, but Prowl and Soundwave are both good figures too. Stil, it'd be nice if they shipped Hun-Gurr again in a future wave to make it easier to put Abominus together.

There's going to be a giftset for Abominus, y'know. ;)

I know, but it'll be a target exclusive with different colors, plus I don't think it'll be out until fall, if I recall correctly. And I don't know who's that patient.

Me, apparently. XD The only carded one I HAVE to have is Cutthroat, since he's the one I had as a kid.

Ah, okay. Nostalgia isn't really a factor for me with these guys, I just like the little monsters.

nostalgia is the main reason I want these guys. Only g1 gestalt I completed. BUT I don't see them on sale on either of my usual stores or even on ebay. (even internationally they appear to be in short supply. and I kinda grudge paying Voyager prices for each one AND THEN shipping costs)
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.

Even at bbts i can't buy Hun-Gurrr without buying a Soundwave and a BB as well($30). The rest of the team is easy enough to attain because bbts has the option of the other four for 34.99 plus shipping (another 20 bucks).
So even through bbts, i'm still close to the 100 dollar range. At retail they go for $6.99.
Might just have to go without an Abominus for a while. He's not worth any more than 40$ to me.

I really think we are in the Golden Age of small Transformers figures. I'm hoping we get a lot more sets like this.

The engineering does seem to be improving. I for one have greatly enjoyed the Transformers Prime commanders and legions.

The only bad thing is the pricepoint on the Commander figs, not a fan of that.

To be fair though, the Commander class is considered the new Scout class, which was already close to ten dollars anyway.

I never remember them much over $8, but I didn't buy a ton of scouts.
