But this sucker may preorder it. What's TRIPLE the regular price of a normal voyager anyway?

The more I see of it, the more I want it. It's gloriously insane in the best way. Hopefully Pulse will actually ship this one on time.

I'm in the same boat. My mind say that it's insane to buy a "voyager" that is 95$CAN plus taxes and shipping. Even though that voyager is now a leader with all that added mass to the classic TR mold.

My heart say that I want it and tell my mind that I've bought many "overpriced" collectibles before and what harm will one more do?

Ugh....
Fokkit. I'm preordering. at Age 3 & Up. #-o :roll: :x
It's the best option for this here Canadian.

Well, I'm telling myself I just bought a "Botcon Exclusive".
And honestly if it were, it would have been at the very least DOUBLE that price at the time.

If THAT'S the "beforemarket" price, I just don't want to know what the aftermarket price will be...

COULD BE WORSE you say?

I just looked up that Botcon Shattered Glass Starscream on Ebay.
Only one available....

For just 500$US plus shipping! 8-}

(And G1 Overlord is a big nope for me.)

I once saw a G1 Fortress Maximus with Head at the Motor City Comic Con, $2,500. I didn’t even ask about, didn’t seem like haggling would get me anywhere near a reasonably justifiable price. Just admired from afar.

Firstly, that price is ridiculous. Secondly, why not go for the reissue? You even get a kickass sword out of it.

That's a good price, I'm pretty sure I paid around that in US dollars.

Edit: Found a 2012 email from BBTS saying that my pre-order was going to be $350, but had been reduced to $330 before release. But I also found the email receipt which showed shipping was $20 (this was during the time they didn't offer flat rate shipping like they had before and since) so I still paid $350 in the end.

That mean I bought that Fortmax on sale. Maybe it was below 300$US or so. I remember mine being 360$CAN total because the shipping alone was 50$US and I had to pay custom fees on top.

It was still just 360$CAN total though and not 400$CAN+ because at the time, the Canadian dollar was worth the same if not more than the US dollar!
Maybe with all the "free money" the US government issue because of the coof, it will happen again?

Eh, G1 toys just really aren’t my thing. I have an OG Starscream bombin around from my uncle, but it’s missing all it’s parts. I used to have a Jetfire with no arms, also from my uncle. That one I kinda miss. But yeah, I don’t collect many TFs anymore outside MPs.
