Does it make sense to only get 3 of the 4 though???

Does it makes sense for us grown ups to have more toys than most kids out there?

Maaaaaybe...

Hmm, if you have to money to spare for 'em, I guess I might, maybe just get Blast-off then, he's so great - and looks gorgeous, otherwise, I guess I'd hold off on them Image

I have the unite warriors version on pre-order and still bought Hasbro blast off and vortex because of how different they are. The others are different but not enough to warrant getting as well.

One thing I was considering if I opened both sets:
Bot modes-- Hasbro Onslaught and Swindle, UW Blast Off, Brawl, and Vortex.
Combined Brut-- UW Onslaught and Swindle, Hasbro Blast Off, Brawl, and Vortex.

The $$ isn't a real issue... But as I've said before, I get buyer's remorse so stupid easy...

edit: now I'm thinking I'm either getting all 4, or none of them...

I'd hold off on getting the others then and just get Blast-off, unless you definitely want another set to display separately, they're really nothing special

I was periodically checking amazon and HTS the last few days and saw he was available on amazon (from amazon, at regular retail price). I managed to order him, he was available for about half an hour after I got my order in. Now it's just third party scalpers.

Yeah, that's what I was affraid off. Seeing him at this price doesn't make me wan't to get it at 25$ plus shipping. Might as well simply wait for the bigger release in October or maybe get him at a comiccon convention (That were I picked up my Wildrider last year at a decent price).

Heres what I did:

I was gonna get the UW version but I didnt get the order in time for the preorder at the best price for me. So I was gonna wait till he was in stock and hopefully the dealer I want to buy from would relist him. But then I was able to buy Hasbro's for 46$ USD (including taxes) so I just abandoned thinking of getting the UW and got Hasbro instead. If I had UW on the way, I wouldnt buy the Hasbro version unless he was obtainable for that a price as low as what I paid. Defintely not for 80$ thats for sure. But I might get the G2 version instead. Like that I have the G1 deco one from Takara and the Hasbro version in G2 colours. Different enough to warrant a purchase of either version.

Oh I know you are concerned, so I am just trying to in return give some more assurance :)
And it aligns with the entertainment earth preorder which is still available. That pretty much confirms that they will be having limitless amounts come October. The scalpers can only make money now (even the scalper price on Amazon has lowered).

I went for it and ordered all 4... $49.57 total, with $24.99 for Onslaught.
But since I was getting him anyway (and he's already paid for), I can live with that price for the other 4.

WJ88, While I prefer the look of the UW version, I don't fault you at all for going with the Hasbro version-- that's a sweet deal.

I'm also not bothered by getting Groove from EE for $24 (with shipping).
Isn't $17.99 only $3 more than retail cost?
I won't doubt if he's easy to get in October, but I was all in on making sure I got him, so I'm really okay with that decision.

No need for rainchecks, it was available for anyone last week:

so 8.97X4 + 14.97 = 50.85
50.85X 1.15 for tax = 58.47

$58.47 cdn = $45.07 US
Of course, this was that same store the next day so you had to act quick:

Thanks for understanding :) I preffered the Onslaught and Blastoff deco on Hasbro's so it was a win win.
And 17.99$ is pretty much ballpark retail. I consider it retail, thats the same "price" at my toysrus (different "cost" when considering exchange). The way I see it, you got him for the best price possible ;)^

That sale was great. I was able to snatch Sky Lynx for 15$ plus taxes. After I opened the box I realised I was glad I had bought it so cheap. I really like this character but I was a little let down with it in hand. I will use it in my IDW display and keep using my Takara reissue for my classic display.

Same here. He has a great torso mode though, and I thought that was worth 15$ so I didnt mind that.

But yeah, with no exageration this is one of the few updates which is not as good as the G1 toy. Fort Max seems to be that way as well, along with Powermaster Prime (unless they do get godbomber to combine with him). Are there any other TFs whos updates arent as good as the originals? I cant think of too many aside from cheetor :-?

Oh wait, what about Thunderwing and Perceptor?

That sale is truly amazing considering normal prices these days...
Reminds me of when the Generations and RtS lines were out.........
If you got in on that, you are freaking lucky!!
At the local ToysRUs, CW deluxe figures are $19.99... :BANG_HEAD:

I forgot to mention I finally found Legends Shockwave at a local Target,
and that little guy was $10.29 before tax! :roll:

Yeah, I figure the only way I paid too much for Groove is if I end up seeing him in a store...
Which knowing my luck, I'll see 7 dozen...

I'm still a fan of all of the car Autobots from the Universe 2.0, Generations, and RtS lines.
I just don't think you can beat those versions of the Datsun bros, Sideswipe, Sunstreaker, and even Kup and Warpath.
Actually, Classics Bee and Cliffjumper are tough to beat as well.

Reminds me of when the Generations and RtS lines were out.........
If you got in on that, you are freaking lucky!!
At the local ToysRUs, CW deluxe figures are $19.99... :BANG_HEAD:

I forgot to mention I finally found Legends Shockwave at a local Target,
and that little guy was $10.29 before tax! :roll:

Yeah, I figure the only way I paid too much for Groove is if I end up seeing him in a store...
Which knowing my luck, I'll see 7 dozen...

I started collecting and being on these boards in 2014, but I was very much into transformers 20 years ago as a kid. The Dragons from Beast Hunters inspired me to get back into it since Beasts were back. And then I realized I actually preffered collecting vehicles haha.

Anyways, my Toysrus still has the RID warriors for 19.99$ so its not like we are out of the woods either. And the titans return deluxes will probably also be 19.99. I think this is just a sale to make room for the upcoming stuff. Which worked, their online warehouses are now fully depleated.

As for Shockwave, I have a raincheck to get him for 5$ before taxes :DANCE:

He just has to show up first :(

Also Groove will never be in stores, he is online exclusive. So as I said, you got him for the right price. I'm just waiting for other stores to have their october preorders.

Oh wait, what about Thunderwing and Perceptor?
Every Soundwave/Blaster update?
