    fuck that. can still get it from rk shipped for less than that. well maybe not since the box is so big.

    i understand making a profit and covering costs but this figure and its price has baffled me. we are bordering or into MP Prices with this.

    sucks the price kept going up.

    Uhm... did you cancel your pre-order for $154.99? You know BBTS honors the original prices for folks that pre-ordered before the price hike right?

    You can get it shipped from rk for $190 and some change. I seriously considered it, but my preorder from BBTS was 174.99

    Unfortunately I was looking for this to come out in August since that was the release date BBTS had listed. Also unfortunate for me is that the preorder just charged through on my card before I had enough funds. I've been putting aside some money to pay forr this but wasn't looking for it this early. I just can't afford it right now at all.

    /facepalm. Ya know...I was really questioning if I should go all out and buy it for $174...but now that it went up another $25...I know my answer. This looks a hundred times...no, a thousand times better than that crappy Ultimate they are releasing. I was hoping to buy this one day, but not when I have to spend $150 more than I should just to get the jetwing parts. (i.e already own ROTF Leader Prime, and that stuff can't be worth more than $50 additional.) I would consider buying had it been $100.

    I don't ever remember it being $154.99, but they are still honoring the $175 price IF you preordered.

    Part of me is getting the feeling that people would be griping about the price regardless of what it was.

    - $200? Not worth more than $150.

    - $150? Not worth more than $100.

    - $100? Not worth more than $75.

    Maybe it's been stated before, but what is the price of this in Japan? I'm just curious how much of the overseas markup is due to customs charges, etc. and how much is a profit markup.

    Right? That's $197.

    Wait, how does that work?

    So, the prices are about the same.... it's $200 ($175 if you had the foresight to pre-order) to buy from BBTS compared to $197 in Japan (after Yen conversion rate)? And folks are still complaining? Sadly, if you missed the pre-order, you've got no one to blame but yourself, it looks like. Better pre-order DA-28 before the next price hike when he comes in stock. XD

    From what I've read it attaches alright to buster Prime (but not as well as you might hope), and can't attach to the general release ROTF Prime at all because of his gas tanks.

    Yep. Currently $196.49 based on information from XE.com. But let's all crucify BBTS for not selling it at or below Japanese retail.
