    Compared to something like MP44 where you get a truck, trailer and a few dicky accessories for 500+ bananas, this seems the better value option to me.

    They are still up, so maybe they have until the end of tomorrow, or got an extension for being so slow putting them up in the first place.

    Both Turtler and Gulf are available again from EB Games and Zing, if anyone still wanted to get them but missed out the first time.

    I got the missus to order for me before it was taken down. I'm suckered into getting them

    Well, I did it.

    I'm one of those jerks that rags on something and then goes ahead and buys it anyway..

    I went to have another look at it on Friday and the listing was gone, having time to think about it this week, I realise that I'd rather have it even at that crazy price. I've saved money on other things in the past so I guess this is balancing the scales. If a box set is announced (significantly cheaper) at some point down the road I can always cancel the pre-order.

    I looked at it as, since it's a generations select item and being offered on Hasbro Pulse in this format, there probably won't be a separate US based release, most likely. And as others have said it's probably a comparatively small run so there is an increase in unit cost. There are significant mould changes to other combiners and it's not the sort of team to be presented again any time in the near future so if I don't grab it now I'm not going to have the opportunity.
    Being limited if I don't end up liking it, I shouldn't have too much trouble moving it.

    The first set which was initially due on Jan 25 had its release date pushed back to Feb 21. Now I've been told that it's been pushed back again to mid March with the other two sets coming out in late March. I've been told that the shipment is held up at Customs due to coronavirus.

    There's a big backlog of stuff coming in since some Chinese business and post have started going back to work since stopping for the virus.
