    Pretty sure this isn't news but BBTS has these 2 new transformer excluisive for pre-order:

    MP08X- Grimlock Pre Order- $249.99- Due in the 4th Quarter of the year. This Grimlock comes with his crown, a new box featuring comic book art, and a new paint scheme that is more accurately related to his comic book appearances than his toy images.

    The figure will come repackaged with a crown, sword, and his gun, as well as a new box.
    The figure will not include the apron, necktie, tray, glasses, or transfer device.
    The box image reveals King Grimlock depicted in a Generation 1 comic wearing his crown.

    Please Note: The price of this item is relatively high because our suppliers in Japan have to pay full price with tax before marking it up to sell to BBTS.

    Mickey Prime: $114.99 Due in the 4th quarter of the year.

    Geez, whats the point of ordering Grimmy from BBTS then? You can order directly from Japan, after shipping it's cheaper than BBTS's before shipping price, and you'll get it sooner.

    Okay, $115 for a scout-sized toy is just ridiculous. I don't care how exclusive it is, that's insanely overpriced.

    So is the extra $100 for a version of MP Grimlock that just features less accessories and a different box.

    I love BBTS, but this is completely ludicrous. I've been waiting for them to put up a Buster Optimus Prime pre-order, but now I'm afraid it's going to cost over $100.

    why are people complaining when they specifically tell you why the item is so expensive. It is a japanese toy exclusive. They are not ordering them from Takara. They have to pay somebody to go in to a japanese toy store, buy the toy at full price plus taxes. Then they have to box them up and ship them over sees. Do we even know the retail price at toy hoby market yet? I asssume there is a mark up there too.

    People need to get of this BBTS bashing kick thats going around. They are reialble with good customer service. If you prefer a different store to use thats fine but dont rag on BBTS

    that excuse is a LIE.

    They have offered other japanese MP figures at just above japanese retail before. I refuse to believe they cant get them from their suppliers.

    its milking the popularity of the movie, nothing more. I'll get this from HLJ or TFsource.

    ah, I didnt realize that it was a store exclusive.

    but still. doubling the price is unacceptable. they've bought other japanese store exclusives and not doubled the price on them.

    I stand by my belief that the reason the price is so high is because of the movie hype. nothing more. just watch. TFsource and HLJ will be cheaper.

    is the halloween mickey a store exclusive too? even if it is, is there a reason for almost tripling it's price? fuck no, there isnt.

    If I want my MP Grimmy to have a gold crown, I'll just order the upgrade kit for $15.

    I'm waiting for the hasbro one. I'm relatively sure it'd have the crown, as it IS from a US comic...

    o_O ... are they serious? That price is ridiculous. I'm no fan of Robotkingdom, but I'm sure even they could provide access to Grimlock at a much cheaper price, including EMS shipping.

    Sometimes, bullshit is simply bullshit, and BBTS seems to be dealing it at an all time high right now.

    Now, if this Grimlock repack included both version's accessories, plus an official version of the 3rd party upgrade kit...then, (well, maybe) I could see the price being that high.

    As it stands now, I'm sure other retailers will find a way to have it be cheaper, and get it to you sooner.

    The Halloween Mickey...that price isn't even worth talking about. That's just insane right there.
