"TRANSFORMERS 4 RID OPTIMUS PRI $32.99"

$32.99 is an interesting price point - more than a Voyager but less than a Leader and less than the Prime "Weaponizers". So what do you think it might be? Something like an Ultra class, or a Voyager with electronic gimmicks?

Another thought: the other "RID" items listed here all sound like items for younger kids (12" titans, flip % smash, one-step, etc.). Maybe this RID OP will be another upscaled figure, perhaps a Voyager upscaled to Leader size, and thus the price point being in between.

Transformers 4 Generations... Are the rest of the Thrilling 30 toys going to be filled with TF4 toys?

No, it's possible the new Movie toys will be put in Generations as a new series. Like:

"Series 0": WFC & Classics
Series 1: FOC
Series 2: Thrilling 30's
Series 3: Age of Extinction?

Looking at the lineups we're at proper cut-off points compared to earlier series and Prime: 16-18 for Deluxe and 6 for Voyager. But I must stress we still don't know the finer details about how they'll do the lines yet.

I'm REALLY not excited that the Deluxe pricepoint has gone up to $14.99. Nor the Voyager to $24.99. I realize that they will likely be on sale or a discount at some point, but to have a price jump that big (nearly $5, as I remember DOTM deluxes as $9-10)...I just hope that they are at least as big as the ROTF Deluxes and Voyagers, otherwise it'll be the same amount of plastic as DOTM figures but at a higher price.

I suppose that passing on most of the line means I'll have more money for Masterpieces, though.

DotM Deluxe figures official retail price was $12.99, which is the same as the red-carded Generations, and the yellow-carded "transformers"/HftD line.

It is also the pricepoint for Prime: RiD & Beast Hunters deluxes.

Maybe it's the molds from DotM that were never released in the US and don't fit into the TF4 line. Leadfoot, Wheeljack, Mercedes Soundwave, etc?

Right, and that's the pricing I see in Target now. Walmart is $9.96 for Deluxes at the moment. But I distinctly remember DOTM Deluxes at Walmart being $9.88 when the line was released. Though the prices did fluctuate somewhat, they stayed near the $10-11 dollar mark. Now they're nearly $15? My whole point is that if they are actually sold for near $15, and are the same size as the DOTM Deluxes, I'll probably be skipping most of the line.

i think the "Jousters" description might have something to do with that display we have seen with Optimus atop Grimlock, its turning into Knights tale.

I agree, but there needs to be a Decepticon jouster.

Prepare to save a load of money on this line then. That's a major part of why I only bought 2 DotM figures out of the entire line. The prices kept increasing and the size of the figures decreasing.

For them to jack these things up yet another $2.00 is absolutely ludicrous and for many stores to be running Prime and Generations lines at one price point and to have Movie line at another for the same class figure... that's just flat out insulting. I would like to know their supposed justification for this latest jump and for the variation between lines. And I'd like a DECENT explanation from someone at the top of the retail chain and not the standard bull****, intelligence insulting excuses they always lay on us. Or at the very least have them be honest and come right out and say "Yes, we are screwing you over... deal with it!!" At least have the balls to do that much.
