I'm hoping Hasbro decides to release it in the US as a Commemorative Reissue, maybe a TRU exclusive, like the Insecticons, Perceptor, and Soundwave, with the standard Comm/Reissue packaging, at a lower price point.

Hmmm, seem to remember the Galvatron reissue weighing in at about £75? Thats a hell of a hike, even with today's costs...

Nice. I really dig the bookman style box and added details. Alas this fig is way too expensive and will never make it on to my shelf (glances admiringly at D98 Sixshot reissue currently looking badass on shelf). ;)

Cool, but doesn't justify the extra $100 they seem to have tacked onto the price...

It is cool looking but I too will pass. I'm totally content with my Takara re-issue from years ago. What I do think IMO is items like this and SDCC Bruticus wouldn't cost so much if not for these really fancy packaging...'nuff said! :VEHI:

Looks cool, but like most, I will be passing. Already have the original, and this one's way too much.

The crapper about it for people that find this stuff to be must have...I think this isn't going to do very well due to the price. So HasTak will probably look at it as a failure due to non-interest rather than the actual problem which is the rip-off they're trying to get away with.

G1 is my thing... I have quick switch, always wanted six shot, missed out on first reissue..l will I pay this much for this figure? Nope

Think at this point they calculate prices based I what's sold on eBay. I eagerly await a 3000$ fortress maximus

Also don't care for chrome... Find it cheapens the tf rather than make it more appealing but iia very small minority

I know right? kind of a stupid idea to package these guys in their tallest modes rather than their more compact ones, I mean with Bruticus I guess it's understandable since it's five dudes, and packaging them in their alt modes wouldn't make much of a difference, but with Sixshot having him in car mode or folding his wing things would have made the box a bit more... y'know, better and compactier. :oops:

Bigger Box = Bigger Price

Does this look great? Yes
Do I want a Sixshot? Yes
Am I going to pay nearly $100 for a box? No

Why was';t this just done as an Encore release will be a big mystery

The more i see it the more i want it but that'll never happen. Hopefully some company will do a cheap ko of this again, i dont care if its real or bootleg actual size or not i just want the mold.

So where's the much touted Leather?????

I'm torn though... I want this, but not for that price.

Why does Sixshot need chrome guns? Retarded.

I'm sure the bigwig collectors are all over this. I'll wait the extra 4 years for a 'tru exclusive' or whatever they do.

And yea, a nice 3rd party Hexatron or whatever it was, would be better at that price. Toy collecting is getting a little too big for its britches in this economy. I live in the US, we're on our way to being a poor country. (thats all Im gonna say about that) :-B

Plus his wings aren't chromed!! Like G1 is.

What a rip off.

I also agree that they will prolly see it as a lack of interest and not acknowledge that it is a WAY overpriced release with too many unnecessary bells and whistles (packaging).

Box is nice, but totally unnecessary. And frankly I think the white guns look better with him than the chrome.

I'll stick with my G1, thanks >:oP

G1 Sixshot had metal only at the base of the wings, not the wings themselves ;)

And it looks like you're paying more for the box than for the figure. Not that that's a bad things mind you, I like keeping my boxes. ;)

The packaging does look textured like leather could be.
I like it, doubt I'll get it.

Well, I can cross my fingers for a regular release and wait. I guess I'll wait until at least Botcon before I start pursuing a previous release.

The paint apps are very nice but this is one of the most overpriced figures of the year.

My preorder on BBTS is still in and I'm keeping it so far. I notice the blue/green paint on his chest is also metallic, which looks really nice and the chrome guns look decent.

I may drop the preorder, but I've got a sneaking suspicion that the price is actually going to drop on this thing at some point prior to release unless there's much more to it that they haven't revealed yet.

G1 or bust.

Bust!

I thought that the reason this is so expensive is because it's a convention exclusive? Not available in the shops?

That probably explains the price.
