If Powered Commander is to see a wider release it allows more fans to obtain a great set. Yeah it sucks that so many paid so much for the TFCon release. However that great response to the set helped to prompt a possible mass release so on that thought everyone that purchased it helped to bring it to fans that could not obtain it. I would say thank you to those fans. I bought the botcon 2007 set(mainly for the seekers) none of my fellow fans could afford it. But when the Henkei versions were annouced I said great now my friends and fellow fans can complete the seeker sets. Bottom line it always sucks when you feel you overpaid or got cheated out of the exclusiveness of a figure but I dont buy my TF's with value or exclusiveness in mind I buy them because I am a fan of Transformers.

There's words for those qualities and I can't remember them right now...

Actually, I think it is worse than the seekers. I don't say this out of spite. I am perfectly content with the release of both the seekers and this armor as non-exclusives. However, this information ideally should be available before collectors drop hundreds on the existing pieces. Not to mention, at least Takara had the courtesy to release the seekers years later. Which brings up another valid point: The seekers were released by a separate(yet relative) company. This would be the same company releasing a product as both an exclusive and general release. Far worse in my opinion.
Oh well, I gots mine
