Transformers Universe is offering 4 founder packages with the Cybernite package being the most prestigious one coming in at $449.98. That figurine better look super duper!

There's the statue.

You know SOME DB/Whale is ACTUALLY going to buy this.  I mean.. for 500 bucks.. that's a whole console/pc/50 McDonalds runs.  To be fair it includes 12 months of game time which is approx. $180 bucks... so where's the other $320 going?  Some skins?

This needs to be front page of MMORPG.. because this is how companies feel about us anymore.. we're merely walking wallets.  It's BS.  This game hasn't even released yet.  This from someone who considered but then dismissed lifetime options in MANY games.  Most of which panned out for the best and only one (LOTRO) did I regret not doing (but with the way they're treating some of their lifetimers now.. not so much).  And that was only in the $200 range...

The good news is that the statue is not yet in production. If it was, there would be a limited number of packages that could be sold, and they would have a high risk of sellout. As is, they can wait until they have all the orders before starting production, and as such sell an unlimited amount of these.

This is just an astronomical amount of money and I can't imagine many paying that at all.  Even for those that have the money to gamble with, I don't see a product here that is providing much to be confident about yet, even to spend $100.  It sounds cool because it's Transformers, but then again so did the movies, and we see what happened there :P.

Talk about smoking crack. The max I would pay is $100 no matter what game it is. Don't know what these developers are thinking.

You also get $250 worth of credits. I mean if you knew you would love this game it looks like an amazing deal. You get tons of characters and stuff. Not sure what it all does but its probably needed to make new characters and upgrade them. Plus the statue is pretty cool. I like buying statues like that. I have the SWTOR one still in my room which is a 10in character decked out by sideshow. I dont buy every game that comes out but when I find one I want I pay heavily for it. I can see tons of people buying this.

450 / 365 comes out to $1.23 per day for a whole year. It is a bargain! Autobots, roll out!

OK, $500 for an unplayed game.  Not even out yet so no one knows how good or bad it is.  Some people are rich and do have $500 laying around so they will buy it or buy it for their kid.  Just another test by game makers to see if people will support more expensive packages in the future.  If this sales expect to see a lot more.

I have to point it out now since this part seems to have been missed.

The OP is using sarcasm.

Neither Archage or this are okay. They are basically pay in advance deals with zero value virtual items guaranteeing the publishers money. Think of them like subsidized phone contracts in which the network providers get a guaranteed amount of month subscription.

----

The statue is a "limited run", meaning they will run the production as long as people buy the packs. If they would be limited to 1000 they might hold some collectors value but at a limited run they are worthless junk part from the decorative value.

What? People being sarcastic online? Nah, that can't be.

 

I can't wait to pay $450 for a pack containing barely anything for a game not even out yet personally! I know I'm giving a lot more then the value of items given, but its totally worth it for a game we have no clue how it will be! I mean that action figure thats likely made for $30 and is technically limited by the number of people who order it, thus unlimited until they decide to maybe one day remove it, that could be worth a fortune on EBay probably a whole $50! 

 

I'm so amp about this pack and the incredible value it has! Its great to see companies are supporting the consumer by having packs to pay for something to maximize their profits even further with consumers who have no clue how it will turn out in the end! I mean without these founders packs those poor companies would have to shell out the plenty of cash they have available to them! The game would never be made...  well it would actually be easily made without it... but it wouldn't be made as good as the magical power consumer money has to fund a project!

For a game that most people don't have beta access to yet, the price points are insulting. I thought Marvel Heroes was pushing the limits of good taste with their $200 Founders pack, and $100 2014 characters pack, but this is out of control for where it is in development and the company. I was already let down by the "all action, no RPG" direction of the game, this is a slap in the face. I genuinely would have preferred RuneScape with Robots over this shit.

Amazing deal!  ArcheAge only 150 and now this!   I expect 600 will be the next price point!  It will be an even better deal!

I wouldn't pay that for a lifetime membership on a normal mmo let alone one that launches from your browser and downloads in the background. I played 2 browser mmos Dead Frontier which was good because it took next to zero disk space and was a fun game and Clone Wars which downloaded crap in the back ground and forced ya to use your browser to launch the game rather then just using the classic game patcher. The packs don't offer much worth that kind of cash. The virtual items ya buy go poof when the game closes eventually and even Lotro didn't charge that for a lifetime membership when it opened. They been smoking crack. Plain and simple. lol
