Year of the Goat Optimus Prime

Listen I don’t want to do any Hasbro Bashing, but I feel like I have to in this case. The Platinum Series – Year of the Goat Optimus Prime is WAYYYYYYYYYYY over priced, I mean WHOA!!!!
Yes these figures have always been a bit more expensive than they should be, but this is absurdly expensive.
When you consider that when the mold first came out in 1995 it was only $25 bucks, and when Scourge (RID) came out in 2002, which was also a Toys R Us Exclusive, he was only about $30 bucks. So to be honest I was expecting this reissue to be maybe $50 perhaps $60 tops, but this……really
What are they using real silver for the chrome part ???
HASBRO I am disappointed in you for this one, we all know you are just trying to fleece the collector market. Heck I think I can find both the original and Scourge cheaper on-line if I wanted to.
Of course I don’t have to, I do have the 1995 version and he is in great shape too. 😛
