Was wondering what's the best way to pick him up.
Would have done the MightyApe order but didn't get my A into G in time.

thanks


Hey champ, I contacted Mighty Ape about them taking him down. The guy assured me Jetfire will be back up for pre order at some stage.

I procrastinated and while I could get from Amazon, it was going to be more than MA pre order price

I looked up on RK, BBTS, and Amazon last night. Amazon was the cheapest @ $100 US, converted by Amazon to $162 NZ.

MightyApe was $150 as I recall. Would be nice to know if they popped it back on MightyApe before September arrives...

So Unicron got a month extension until the deadline; who couldn't see that coming even though they said no extensions

Yeah. On the back of announcements prices are going up again across all their products I can't help but wonder, when this succeeds coz it likely will now, is this the end of combiners and bots like Scorponok getting normal releases since Unicron and the Seacons will set the mark that people are more than willing to pay high prices for figures they can chuck in the crowdfunded/specialist area instead of offering a normal release for. Or worse, the decision to move lines like Siege fully into that area to gain more $ for less units produced.

Thats why i kinda hope Unicron fails, i have to admit there isnt much more in the way of transformers i want.

I want to get sureshot pointblank crosshairs and by the looks of it we will see them in this line as repaints, trottlebots and Scorp, apeface and snapdragon.

I think outside of them g1 toys i think the only things i would jump at getting is a better Primus, amarda sideswipe and G1.5 / 2 bots like boss and rotorstorm, there is another toy fair incoming i think its the last one for the year so we should get some treats to look at

Anyone know why Jetfire is gone from both the Warehouse AND Mightyape websites?

Limited stock I would say. The Warehouse often sells out then gets things in again. Toyco has had a recent restock.

But mainly I would hazard the guess that because the larger guys have shelf warmed, places aren't interested in holding them, they take up too much room to warrant the risk.

Well, I'm hoping they get him back in again. I worked some overtime so I can afford the deposit to Part Pay for the big guy.

Yeah, Toyworld's prices concern me a lot. Toyco doing Part Pay isn't so bad though, to be honest.

Toyco almost weekly has deals where you can get 20% off too so if they do that and you part pay it, its sweet coz anything over $100 is free shipping.
