Fellow Seibertronians, TFW2005 member BattleUpSaber has reported finding the RID Platinum set in Singapore, where the set is priced at 129.90. The set, first seen at NY Toyfair this year, is of particular note, as it utilizes the Takara Tomy voyager class Grimlock - an extensive retool of Fall of Cybertron Grimlock. The picture has been mirrored, and can be seen below. And, as always, let us know what you think of this in the comments below.

Indeed, somewhere near $100 US, this actually makes sense, if hasbro had nothing to do with this mold, they probably had to pay a bit to help offset TT's cost of making the mold. I still find it inexcusable, and won't be buying it, but at least it makes more sense than any of the other ones >:oP

I am wondering if anyone happy with the announcement that this mold was coming to the west will still buy it at its approsimate 100$ US price tag. And while that price blows, it is very close to the other prices we have seen. If 3 insecticons cost 75$, a deluxe and voyager set being around that is not unimaginable.

Do note that toys tend to be over charged around here, so if the set goes for $130SGD here that should be around $65USD, not $95.

Which is still overpriced, but it's better than what we have here.

HA! No way it's going to be that cheap, $65 is actually comparable to a decent deal :roll:

I'm just glad I got the Takara version when I could. The price was a lot better and the Takara color scheme is more screen accurate.

But they dont. Time and time again, Singapore seem to have had lower prices on these sets. Look at the platinum seekers: http://www.seibertron.com/transformers/ ... jet/32433/

They were priced at $109.90 SGD which is approximately $78.89 USD, and Target sold them for $82 USD. So yeah, I really think it will be closer to 100$ for that 2 pack.

I still remember the era of G1 reissues being close to normal price - Prowl, Hoist, and Sideswipe being $15 each at KB Toys and all three insecticons packed together for $35 at TRU.

I was happy to hear it was coming to the US, but I knew that it was going to be overpriced. If it was just Grimlock and not another Beedeco I might consider it, even with Platinum pricing.

I guess if someone was interested in that Grimlock mold; what's the magic price point to make it worth your while?

But then again Tak's can be picked up from Amazon for under $45 shipped... :-?

Just as a reality check, a 2 pack set containing the same grimlock mold (prior to retooling) with a healthy amount of chrome and superfluous chromed up deluxe movie prime were released at retail for $30 (currently sitting on clearance at most shops at £17.50 near me).

There is no way that 1 voyager and a shampoo bottle simplified up-scale figure not intended for my demographic are worth $100 together.

What are you referring to? The Bee it comes with is the TAV/RID Bumblebee toy.

A "simplified up-scale" of what, exactly? That Warrior Bumblebee mold is its own mold.

Oh, I guess it's a completely different mold than I thought. I figured it was the super size 3 step bumbles.

My apologies folks, please disregard.
