Yeah, the shared mold is a bit of a double-edged sword in this case -- on the one hand it's a bit "m'eh, already got this", even with the new parts. On the other hand, Triggerhappy is fantastic so it's hard to really be all that bothered.

And who am I kidding? Misfire was my second Transformer as a kid and this is a super-accurate new rendition of him. I'm going to be all over it when it comes out.

Yeah, looks tons better with the dark head. Slugslinger's face looks kinda squashed, though.

So toys for The Last Knight have started popping up at Toys'R'Us stores around Canada...priced $10 more than their Titans Returns counterparts of the same size class. So Deluxes are $30, Voyagers are $40, etc... Apparently it's being branded as "premier edition adult collectors' figures" in spite of being, you know, just regular movie toys. And it sounds like the same price hike happened in the UK too, so it's not just a Canada thing or TRU price gouging.

There's no way this crap actually sells at that price point, is there? If this price increase carries over to the Generations stuff I'm going to be shopping exclusively at 50% off sales. Thankfully there'll be lots of those because it'll be the only way they'll get the merchandise to move!

A local chain here in RI, USA has Last Knight Premier Optimus & Grimlock Voyagers for US$30 each, US$5 more than TR Voyagers go for. However, TR Voyagers have pretty chintzy looking stickers while the LK figures had nicer paint than usual. It doesn't justify a 20% price bump, though.
