    Just curious..I'm debating on buying these now, online, while everyone is wanting 30-50$ type thing..And some want even more with high shipping..Or should I wait..When are these supposed to be released over here? Will they all be short packed, or pretty easy to find, since this is the end of the line type thing? I have one place offering 2 of each--Which is how I collect them, for 140$--Worth it, or wait?

    I'd wait. There's no way these brand-new licensed car molds aren't going to be released in the U.S. Even if they turn out to be fairly rare, that's what U.S. online stores are for-- yeah, it'll cost you more than retail then, but you won't be forking over $40+ a pop for them either. 90+% of the time when I've ordered something online thinking it'll be rare, it turns out it isn't, it just takes longer than most would think to reach most areas.

    I'd wait unless money isn't a problem for you. They should be here in a couple of months. In the past, Toy stores stock up on new items right before Easter...

    I would wait till they hit the states, and with the money you save you could buy 3 of each and donate a Ravage and a Rumble to the "Help Th0r4z1n3's Collection Grow Fund" :D

    140 shipped for 4 is a great price, until they hit retail.

    Get em ASAP. Figuring out if Alts are going to be easy to get is always gamble but if you've gone this far to keep your Alt collection complete, it's worth throwing in an extra $50 or so to make sure it stays that way/.

    The odds are just as good that the prices may taper off, IIRC even Rollbar and Ricochet were up there in price when they first appeared.

    I just emailed BBTS, check it out.



    Hi,

    We do not anticipate any problems receiving them. We are just waiting on Hasbro.

    Thanks!
