    Hi guys I really wants those suckahs...
    and since BBTS isn't offering the 3pack combo
    but Igear itself is... should I go for the $340 pack
    shipping is $108 (to the Netherlands)
    No choice but to pre-order otherwise I loose even more right?

    How do you stand... would you wait for review of the first release and when those are all perfect/good ... immediately jump on the 3pack combo?

    It still works out at around 100 each with the exchange rate. It's just whether you are prepared to pay that much I guess.

    For KOs, I would not (personally).

    yeah I know what you mean...
    but do you really think that this time they still don't make them tougher?

    I always wait for reviews of the figures I'm not so sure in.
    Personally, prices are too high for KOs. That's just my opinion.

    I want these as well and would bite if BBTS or TFSource or Automaton Toys carried these guys. I can barely live with the price, add ridiculas shipping costs and so far I am not biting.

    I hope some North American retailers pick these guys up for I really do think they would look amazing being posed as SIX (6) MASTERPIECE SEEKERS. It would just do so much to add prestiege to a toy collection.

    TFsource has them up for preorders, with combo pricing for at least 2 out of 3 of them. Save 20 for 2 basically.

    That is awesome news. I thought the only way to get these was throught iGear.

    $140 each with shipping....this bait just got a lot more temping. I will need to start putting away cash for this purchase.

    This is something I would really like to get and I never had any problems with the I-gear store so hopefully the reviews come back positive.

    I'd like them as well, but I too will be waiting for a good review.

    And if you add the third one to your cart manually, they take the 10 bucks off of that one too. Haven't gone far enough with the order to see what shipping is like though. I'm sure it's cheaper than getting them directly from iGear though.

    Edit: Oh, and I emailed BBTS asking about these and they said that they will NOT be carrying these.

    Not bad at all. They knock off $10 bucks a figure on each figure and shipping is only $45.50.

    All three will be 405.33 shipped to Canada.

    OH BOY I really need to save up some extra coin quick.

    Is that shipped individually, or with their version of POL turned on? I really don't know how their "loot" system works.

    iGear - PP03AEJ - Seeker Jet - Set of 3 Figures

    Edit: OK, saw that OP is in Netherlands...waaay cheaper for those of us in USA :)

    iGear is kind of screwing those who preordered through them directly if TFSource can ship the set of 3 for $25 less than iGear as the ones from TFSource have to be shipped from iGear first then to the customer.

    Yea, that is not cool I've not pre-ordered yet from I-gear but how can TFSource be cheaper since they are a middle man? I will get these one at a time though that is a lot of money to put up now plus you'd have to wait for the final conehead before your order would ship.

    It looks like if you get two 3packs on iGear you get them for $315 each. I too am waiting to hear reviews, but if someone wants to get in on a 3 pack with me send me a PM.

    Is it safe to assume iGear has reasonable shipping rates?
