    I've looked all over and $93.80 is the best I can find for a BTA-01. Is it really that hard to find?

    I'm pretty sure it's just in-demand. It wasn't cheap to begin with, and the number of fans that want one is apparently pretty high.

    Well considering it retailed at 54$, I don't see 93$ that bad for a BTA.

    I think it's a tad on high side, myself. It hasn't been that long since they released.

    The BTA were much more limited than the regular Binal techs.

    Came with a little trampy girl and was boxed in robot mode standing up. THey were very rare because they were not quite Binaltech and not quite KISS.

    It was like a lazy "yeah we know we should release these repaints." by Takara. We never really got Alternator Sunstreaker.

    Fine, fine, fine I bought it. :thumbs2: 

    But seriously thanks for all the quick replies. Well my Alt/BT collection is now complete (minus the red Jazz, and broadblast but I didnt want them anyways). I think I spent more money on these last 6 (Rodimus, Mirage, Swerve, Autorooper, Alert, and Nemesis Prime) then my entire collection!

    Glad I got him when he first came out. I still regret not getting Kiss Rodimus, though.
