    Didn't Games of Deception start out at $699 or something absurd like that?

    I'm not going to lie seeing them all together does not really do anything for me. As for the price if it is low for a BC set I cant help but fell that's not a good sign still the other mystory attending figures could save this year for those wishing to cash in on their toys

    I would take Scourge and Kup but that is about it and they really aren't all that anyway.

    Landshark baffles me, he looks like a rejected pint scheme Landmine.

    If the price goes down to $200 I might think about it, I seriously don't think the box set is worth the inflated price because they're exclusives, since they don't look amazingly good like the Shattered Glass toys, but they do look decent enough for my consideration (except Thunderclash, he's just a damn ugly figure in those colors.)

    A lot of people that plan on flipping these figures are going to be extremely disappointed.

    Looks like this set will be around for a while. Anyone that wants one should wait for it to reach clearance.

    400 USD? Hahahahaha.... no

    Although I will say that I really am impressed with scourge. Of all the ones I've seen this year he and Kupp are the 2 I would consider getting

    4 hundo? Ouch. I want the set. Especially for Kup, Scourge and Flak, but I'll be checking the Junkion Exchange first.

    What do they usually offer at their table relative to what they intend to turn around and sell them for? I've never done anything with BBTS when it comes to Botcon stuff so I'm not sure what to think of their selling price at $400.

    Alot of people go to botcon, buy a couple of sets and flip them, thus paying for their trip. I think its going to be fairly hard to do that this year. I wouldnt buy some of these toys if they were at mass retail prices. The only botcon set that really made any sense was the 06 set(not saying the 07 wasnt any good), but that was a stroke of genius and I seriously doubt we'll see that again.
