Hehe, yep. It looks kinda like an evil robot jack-o-lantern. I can see an easy repaint into FoC 'Dead End' in Prime Dead End's colors working for this. That would be kinda cool and creepy :).

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.

Well with the FOC, and new Prime waves hitting shelves, this is going to be a Toy hunting Summer for sure.

FOC hasn't hit my area just yet, but thanks for posting the DPCI number. I will keep checking regularly.

Pretty sure it has to do with the economy. Shit's getting pricey for Hasbro too I'm sure. Cuts have to be made somewhere.

Thats just the world we live in, Chinese workers wanting decent wages, rising costs of plastics and transportation costs. Toys are going to keep costing more, just like everything else. As long as the quality of the product doesn't go down as the price continues to go up I don't have a problem with it. I work for a company that imports products from China, and for the first time in 40 years, we might be switching over to some products made in the US. The gap in production costs between China and US factories is getting smaller. These costs are just getting past along to the consumer, it doesn't necessarily mean Hasbro is being greedy or trying to screw us.

As a domestic release, these aren't worth $15.

...and I bought them. :-(

What? You think that's expensive? Double it, and you get what I would have to pay if it hits the stores here in Norway.

Folks, I think it helps (somewhat) to look at things this way: it's inflation at work, simple as that. I bought a G1 Mirage with box on eBay recently, and the price tag that was still on the box said $7.99. If you adjust for inflation, it would cost roughly $17 today. Mirage and the rest of the Autobot cars are quite noticeably smaller than even the DOTM Deluxes, which most people noted were smaller than ROTF and TFTM deluxes. They're almost Scout Class sized.

Granted, G1 Transformers had die-cast parts and rubber tires, and the newer deluxesa re made with cheaper materials, but even taking that into consideration, G1 Deluxes are still priced above what the new crop of FOC and Prime Deluxes are, and they were smaller to boot. Frankly, deluxes have gotten bigger since G1 and are just now returning to a bit larger their original sizes. Not to mention that the range of articulation and detail was severely limited in G1.




P.S. I don't count G1 Whirl and Roadbuster as Deluxes, even though they were "Deluxe Autobots", because they were closer to what I'd call Voyager size of G1.

Exactly. For the younger fans out there who may not have been around before the movies, the Deluxe price point has/had been $9.99 since Beast Wars. That's 15 years without the actual cost being affected by inflation. While I'll agree that the figures themselves have gone down in both size and quality of material it was inevitable that the price was going to go up, the question was a matter of when.

It sucks for dudes who are priced out because of this but I assure you it isn't a problem unique to the Transformers brand. Prices have been skyrocketing over the past few years.

3 3/4 Joes are $9.99 and up. Marvel Legends are $19.99. 3 3/4 Avengers are $8-9. And on and on.

It stinks, but why do you think Legends and Bot Shots are over performing like they are? Times are tough all over.

I would rather pay 14.99 rather than paying 30-60 for just one figure on ebay. It's also a shame that when I checked the link provide, every Target near me is listed as out of stock. Oh well, just have to be patient I guess.

Yeah, I find myself getting more Legends/Cyberverse figures and Bot Shots more than deluxes and voyagers. They're nice and just don't hit the wallet as hard. Still, I'll have no problem getting some of these FoC deluxes when I find them.

I'm down for Shocky and probably Magnus, they're worth it, but I'll pass on the rest. (verdict is still out on the seeker mold, but if they make a Skywarp out of it, I need it, as i lack completely a Skywarp)

All I have to say is, Thank you Counterpunch!!! With the DPCI I was able to track down the only Target that had a case in my town, turned out it was the store near my house. The employees were nice enough to not only open the box but also give me Optimus, Jazz and Shockwave. Jazz is a little hard to pose because he's top heavy with tiny legs. Optimus is really simple to transform but overall OK. And Shockwave is pretty cool for being a small deluxe class. Again, thank you Counterpunch.

And how would one use the DPCI to track things? Just waltz into the store and ask them if they have the product with that number or something?

go to one of those price checking machines around the store, type in the numbers then press "enter" and it'll say what they are, how much they are, and if they do or do not have them in the stockroom.

it's super sad that these things are $15.. i'd still like to see size comparisons with these and the WFC figures. something tells me that after i see that, i'll be even more sad.
