    Those prices actually don't surprise me. Those items probably aren't marked up too high really. I've seen sunglasses that are higher priced than that... some of you must not get out much... didn't anyone notice the close to $400 price tag on the triple changer jacket that surfaced a couple of days ago? High end limited edition clothing, accessories and the like go for a lot of money... just like the Transformers Nikes (the ones that are out that you can ware not the Takara Shellformers).

    Though I agree, that's too rich for my blood and I would never pay that much for items like that anyways. Heck, I wanted to buy a pair of Matrix glasses (the ones Neo wore in the first movie), but decided very quickly at the sunglass shop at the local mall that $350 for a pair of shades was astronomically insane.

    Laser Ops is correct. These are expensive, high end collector items, probably produced in relatively low quantities. BBTS isn't taking a $20 ring and marking it up to $225.

    Anybody care to comment on the items themselves? I'm a bit partial to the watches, but the necklaces and rings I can do without. I don't see myself purchasing any of them, though.

    I don't see how someone choosing to purchase a nice pair of sunglasses makes them an 'a hole', but ok. Guess I'd better get rid of my Oakleys.

    I'll stick with my $10 gas station shades, thanks. I loose and break sunglasses far too often to waste that kind of cash.

    The bag and shades are the only items I find remotely attractive. (Though the orange almost kills the bag.)

    But a $230 bag and $160 sunglasses = no, sir.

    Well, I like the sunglasses (I like sunglasses), but I'm not likely to buy one. I like the watches too, but, again, I'd hate to buy them because I break watches too quickly. I actually bought a Star Wars watch at Disney ($55 which I thought was crazy for a watch) and I proceeded to snap the wrist band at work about a month later. Still haven't gotten it fixed either, because I was actually quoted twice the price of the watch. :lol  Seriously, I like high end merchandise, but I just hate having to be careful with it and than I've wasted money when it busts a couple of months later. :lol

    I like the ring though only one size?


    Pricey items...nice, but I think I'll stick to things that transform.

    you are kidding right? sunglasses are expensive because they are designer. brands like d&g, versace and channel to name a few can ask those prices. they are stylish. celebrities and models where these glasses and of course ppl want to emulate that. $160 or whatever for glasses with a decepitcon logo on them? gotta be smoking crack. its ridiculous that these clothes even have to call themselves high end. there is nothing high end about them except the price tag.

    I've seen other brands just as high, so I doubt it's a BBTS markup. Either way, I'll pass on this stuff...
