The Action Pose Thread

...and back to the third party stuff that is actually not a bunch of expensive repaints. ;)

How big are those toys? (i.e. which size class do they most closely match?) -- and how much do they cost compared to the regular retail price for that size class?

 

For me...

+ Pyro = I paid x1.6 above Voyager RRP for this toy. Yes, it was expensive... but cheaper than what I would pay for an original G1 Pyro (that would likely crumble on me)

+ Artfire = I paid x1.2 above Voyager RRP for this toy. Not cheap, but I don't know if I'd say it's massively expensive either. Again, cheaper than what I would have to pay for an original G1 Artfire

 

I paid standard RRP for Inferno and Grapple, so they were neither expensive nor cheap... just "regular" priced.

Here is your size comparison. :)

 

In my opinion, these days I'd rather spend my money on individually engineered G1 homaged transformer-esque toys that I can easily find and purchase online than 15 repaints of a voyager class figure that's been price hiked because it's considered "limited" or "exclusive".

 

Ive wasted enough time driving from place to place, trying to score that elusive $20 figure that eventually disappoints because of cheap paint apps, etc. Ive had much more enjoyment lately with these third party toys.

 

But that's just me... to each his own. :)

Hmm... they look to be about Deluxe sized in that pic. Would that be a fair guesstimate?

Okay, but I'm just curious to know how "price hiked" these Voyagers are compared to say those third party toys you've purchased. So let's just use the Voyager RRP as the standard here and compare by percentages.

I paid 60% above Voyager RRP for Pyro.

I paid 20% above Voyager RRP for Artfire.

 

How much did those toys cost above or below Deluxe RRP? (or Voyager RRP if you think those toys are closer to being Voyagers in terms of size and engineering)

Is MP sideswipe a deluxe sized fig? Not last I checked.

 

And again, I don't care about getting into a debate about who gets what, and for how much. I prefer third party these days, and you prefer otherwise.

 

Moving on...

 

Leo Prime head mod! :)
