Put a fork in me, I'm done collecting new figures

 

 

 

I partially agree, unless it's on sale or a Masterpiece.

I made this call for my collection about a year ago. I'm really only collecting MPs and Encore nowadays. That and any version of Optimus they put out

Michael Bay had nothing to do with Hasbro raising the price. So you can not blame Michael Bay, if there was one person who should receive blame for it, it is Aaron Archer, he has his hands in all of it

 

I agree he is not SOLEY responsible for the price increases, but he is responsible for the effects that led to them.

 

I feel like this thinking is just like raising taxes.....if you increase taxes you get more revenue. If you increase the prices of figures to get more profit, less people buy them.....simple economics. This will probably cause a rise in prices in the eBay market now too...great thanks a lot Hasbro!

sigh... I just now was getting over sticker shock from the first 2 increases. I'm sorry hasbro, but I refuse to pay any more than 15 bucks for a deluxe.

 

 

In Kmart, the place you will most likely find Vehicon, Rumble and Kup, deluxes are $18.99!!

I never meant that it was Michael Bay's fault that prices went up... just that his version of TF pushes me (and many others) away from the franchise. I should have said that not only we have to deal with the price increase, which is enough to push us away, but then an overpriced line of his horrible version of them?

Well Michael Bay's version is what brought me along with many others also back to Transformers after the crap of BM and Armada drove me away. I would not mind paying $15.50 for Movie versions as long as they go back to the scale of the first two films.

And still you can not blame Michael Bay for any of this, he had nothing to do with the price increase, the one to put blame on like I said before is Aaron Archer. he has his hands in all things that concern Transformers, even the pricing.

 

Honestly to blame Michael Bay for even just a little bit of it is to just call him the scapegoat because one does not want to put the blame where it truly belongs

    • @Joe Velez I think that box art is legit. Watch the scene from the movie. The little pink Bumblebee idea is really pretty funny.  
    • In a week with family sickness courtesy of the big C, and tech issues, in light of a missed countdown question, I offer a personal list this week with the Transformers most special to me and why. Back to our usual voting this Wednesday!  
    • I'd rather this be video game tie in toys and not more Netflix show tie ins. But ultimately I'd rather see figures made from the Predacons Rising movie than anything else. I'd also like some from Beast Wars II: Lio Convoy's Close Call! as well. The Beast Wars II movie would be how we get Burning Convoy and Flash Lio Convoy decos lol. But most importantly, it will give us Galvatron Tripledacus and Magnaboss!!! Preacons Rising will give us Predaking, Skylynx and Darksteel. Maybe even Prime Megatron and Starscream that aren't G1ified like Knockout, Arcee and Bulkhead.
    • Looks fine to me. It wouldn't be the first Laserbeak figure made from a pink colored Bumblebee that we got. And since he wasn't the same size as Bumblebee while looking like him, core class makes sense instead of a deluxe. The box art matches up with the scene it happened in too. Granted that the other core class SS figures don't have THAT large a background as the character art is featured more prominently. Maybe it's the art that will indeed be on the box but photo shopped and sized incorrectly. Assuming that the figure is actually coming out that is. So if this is true then it's another core class meant to scale with the larger figures like Spike and Ravage do. Obviously the Bumblebee made from this will scale with the other core class figures like Shockwave and Ratchet. I think it's kind of brilliant. One mold can be two characters for two different scales.
