    Wow, that's double what the list price was.... I'd like to get it, but even 80 was a bit much for me. How can they think they could even sell it at that price?

    I mentioned this in the existing BAPE thread: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/trans...s-prime-t-shirts-coming-july.html#post6300483

    Yeah, that price is absurd. These things must be super limited or something. The pre-order page even mentions that they are not guaranteeing the pre-order will be filled since they are putting boots on the ground to acquire them.

    Darn it, I didn't expect to be that much. Let's see what other have to offer before I preorder one.

    so does this characterize them as "scalpers"?

    "NOTE - We have shoppers visiting stores in Japan for this item, and they will do their best to acquire the needed quantities. Preorders are not guaranteed - only place your pre-order if it is understood that it is possible that it might not fill. "

    Yikes! How much is it locally? I'll ask my boss in japan to see if she can find any.

    Way to go, BBTS.

    After debating with myself, I decided to preorder one. Let's see from there. If anything, I believe BBTS allow cancellation. I already missed the JAF version, don't want history to repeat itself.

    Wow this thing looks great, but for that price I will have to wait. I really hope they can ko this thing for half the price. I really dont want to waste 200.00 on a repaint, which never existed in g1. Im sure if they dont ko this thing, then these will will only increase in price in the future.
