    ooooooooh. The Soundwave kit. WOW.

    damn them.

    -edit-
    ordered Soundwave. he'll stand proud next to *my* custom revo SW and the eventual official release. And he'll look good with Shocky too. :)

    Their made by fans as exclusives for a convention. This is like say exclusive figures at Botcon, but fan made.

    Price= too much. I guess I'm glad those who are crazy for Seekers can get these, but if I wanted to pay that much I would have bought the Botcon versions when the set first went on sale.

    Exactly. and they were SPENDY at Wonderfest. I believe Shocky went for $90 and UM went for $120 at the various cons they were sold at. BBTS isn't gouging badly IMHO on this group of toys.

    $85 for those seekers though.... I'm hoping to find them from any other source.

    BBTS is certainly quick on the draw. Not twelve hours since these were announced and suddenly they're up for pre-order. But $85... what the hell? Dirge and Thrust are 300 yen more expensive than Thundercracker, so why the extra $10 price tag? Exchange rates are shit, let me tell you. ¬_¬

    But is it really worth getting? You can buy a transforming City Commander set instead and save $100 to boot.

    Dirge and Thrust are more than I figured for sure. I'll wait a bit on them to see if the price drops or if Bodhar comes through for the boards again. That Ultra Magnus looks great, but I'm not much with a paint brush.

    Ouch on Dirge and Thrust though I'm sure they will be cheaper elsewhere, probably looking at picking up Dirge only anyway.

    Those Wonderfest customs are amazing, but for the price they're charging, I'd expect them to be painted. What a tease.
