Preordered!!!! So awesome. And I can wait the extra month, for the 15 dollar difference.

So cool to get a fully armed and working Nautilator again.

Pretty cool but it sucks for those people who don't order online. I already have a the vintage one complete in good shape so I don't know if I really need these.

The picture on the web site doesn't have a chromed sword, does that mean that BBTS has this limited edition and the regular will show up at retail or maybe that's an early picture they are using?

I think it's a little off that they have two different pricing tiers for when you want to get it especially considering that they're the only game in town for this. I am glad to see them come back after the whole Macross debacle a few months ago.

Pre-ordered. Waiting until August, which is fine. So are there only going to be roughly 3800 of these total? What's up with the numbers Mkall?

why the hell did they do the legs that orange color? I was hoping they would take all the green parts and make g2 colors

Great. Just Great. Just when I thought my wallet would have a rest.

I'm not even a big fan of the Seacons but that set just looks so new and shiney and G1-ey.

:sad: I'm gonna be poor forever.

The box at Botcon says yes, the page at BBTS doesn't even mention them.

As for the news itself...I'm angry.

Was $49.99 and now it'll be $68.28 with shipping.

I knew the $50.00 price tag was too good to be true. -_-

For that price, it better have the stands. If I open that box and the set's not complete, I will demand a refund, and not one of their store credits either, I'll go to the BBB if I have to.

I'm that angry.

That's a bit dramatic...

It's not like the little cards in front of the figures are ever accurate in any other regard. The dates are often wrong and the MSRP is a suggested retail price...ask KMart. :/

What concerns me is that Snaptrap's head MAY go unpainted or Overbite may be those incorrect colors.

Okay, wow. The craziness isn't confined to TFW on this. You'd go to the Better Business Bureau for $18.29? They will laugh at you.

Things to consider:

MSRP is a "suggested" retail price. Not THE retail price
It may have been a mistake on the card at Botcon
No one promised it would be $49.99
Don't buy it if it bothers you that much

You know why I'm glad it's an Online Exclusive? The sword will actually be chromed hard plastic and not painted rubber like all the other US releases with swords. Oh no, the little kids might hurt themselves!!!!

You could just e-mail them with your concerns before the set arrives and cancel if you're not happy with what's included in the set.

At first I told myself no because I was only a fan of the G1 series in the US because that is the only thing I saw when I was younger so I only wanted to order Combiners from the the US cartoon, but after looking at this thing since again at Botcon and now seeing the price I thought what the heck $60 is a good price so I'll pre-order him.
