Save the money so you can buy overpriced Platinum figures?

Re: Platinum Autobot Heroes Set - Walmart.ca

Full disclosure: If I didn't already have 4 out of 5 of these figures, I would probably buy this set at full price. Canada never got Arcee at retail, and the decos are really nice.

I'm just going to wait a few days to see if it gets rolled back. If nope, getting it anyway.
Yeah and at other times they will never budge. Like that platinum Bee and Grimlock set from RID. It never went down from 75$ and eventually sold out (because that Grimlock was becoming more and more ridiculously priced on e-bay)

Re: Platinum Autobot Heroes Set - Walmart.ca

Eh...I don't know...200$ for that? I'm kind of disappointed with Hasbro quality for the past decade but it's just kind of went straight down the shitter the past two, huh?

I have a few Titan's Return figures (including Powermaster Optimus) and if they're anywhere near the same quality, I'll pass. I'd rather just get another third-party again...got my first one recently and I got my wife hooked on them too after years of trying

I think I'll wait til I can get it for something like 130$ :P

Definitely be picking this up when it goes on massive discount, though only interested in Kup and Blurr as they are the only ones that I don't have in my collection.

This set's deco is really nice, as some have already stated. I'm mostly interested in Ultra Magnus and Springer myself. I hope it gets discounted!

Were you around in 2012? That was by far the shittiest quality ever. Do you own WFC Soundwave, or his casettes, WFC Grimlock,WFC Shockwave or WFC Jazz? That is objectively the all time low for Hasbro. Quality picked up since then and Combiner Wars actually had some good plastic and even got bigger. Look at that voyager Prime, hes huge compared to previous voyagers. Quality is pretty decent now. There are duds here and there but I am so glad we are past the god awful hell of 2012.

Let's not forget the box Era of cybertronian and armada. Anything they come out with today ( dare I say even combiner wars?) Is far superior design than the colourful brick bots we got back then...

Eh, I think you mean FOC figures.
WFC Soundwave (deluxe class) is one of the best deluxes out there IMO.

And yes, I agree that was the worst period of TF toys in recent years, though I find FOC Blaster to be alright.
