I found the price for MP-39 Sunstreaker was acceptable when it was first released early this year.

However, the Australian dollar is weak against the Yen and US dollar right now. The higher product prices have been driven up further by the weak dollar and the newly introduced GST on imports. As a result, prices have probably increased by roughly around 15% or so.

I might have to sadly call it a day on the MP line...
Tis a solemn day in the realm of Transformers when I read collectors posting things like this.

Problem is I donít see quality to price ratio being acceptable.

It also looks like an extremely bad 2018 for masterpiece, in fact I think this is the worst.
IMO TT is so far behind in the masterpiece line is no longer funny. We not even talking about speculating licensing issues such as jazz mirage trailbreaker etc.

Things like blaster, insecticons, galvatron, cyclonus, reflector, kup, blurr are not even made.

Not to mention the combiner bots are where 3p is.

The fact that they now charge an arm for the quality in question. It lost my interest. I donít care for beast wars so I wonít comment on it.

^ Congratulations drifand on 7,000 posts on this forum! That is some achievement & needs to be recognised by your peers for your contribution in enriching Ozformers, sometimes with alternate views that may not be popular with the fandom. For that, I tilt my hat to you.


Bear in mind this year is a Movie year & perhaps resources are being poured into movie toys at the expense of non-movie Masterpieces

I donít compromise my standards when it comes to toys. I donít give myself excuses that is okay.
