    damn you just beat me to posting this a couple of minutes ago. i have some many preorders between july and august. I figured it was coming to a retail store and wonder if it still will because when i was at botcon the price tag in front of the piranacon display said 49.99, bbts is 59.99.

    Seems odd to me that Hasbro would make an exclusive for an online store, plus it was supposed to retail for $50. Was hoping that this would be out around Black Friday also so I may pass on this as I don't think I'll have the cash for it at the time & it most likely will sell fast.

    So what happened to $49.99? Just curious. Are they getting some early, is that it?

    so is this set we saw at botcon only going to be available through bbts and only to north america? That seems really odd.

    Just got the newsletter. Pre-ordered the August shipment. I'm excited, but I can wait and save $15.00.

    I too wonder about the MSRP of $50 shown in the Botcon pics...

    Well this sucks for Canadians, BBTS shipping rates outside of the US are ridiculous.
    This is a pass for me now.

    Aw, darn. Was hoping this would be a retail release. Looked pretty sweet when I saw it at Botcon. Don't think I'll be getting it now, though.

    Did anyone send BBTS Customer Service a query about that discrepancy?

    Would've preferred to have been able to walk into a Walmart and pick this set up. But... whaddya gonna do? Super cool for BBTS though, this is a helluva exclusive.

    Just preordered mine. This was a buy when I saw the Botcon pics. I never had a complete one as a kid. Really REALLY surprised it's a BBTS exclusive.

    Wow, that seems like a coup for BBTS. It's nice that it isn't a Wal-Mart exclusive, but the hike in price (as mentioned earlier) is odd. Pre-ordered.

    Does BBTS update their inventory real-time? (I don't recall if they do.) Looks like they have an allotment, as of now, of 2900.

    BBTS excluisive?
    Eh, I would've picked this up if I saw it on the shelves but I don't care enough about the Seacons to buy them of BBTS. Hope we don't start seeing a lot more BBTS exclusives, I'm not a big fan of theirs
