    Huh. I can't imagine this guy will be hard to find at retail. Feel sorry for our non-US fans who want this guy though.

    "As a service to those without a Walmart store in their area or country, we have buyers to gather stock of this item for us."

    Is that supposed to justify the rediculous price?

    I don't need this because I've got the original Energon version, but the colors are very nice. And if this is anything like Universe Ruination, it will sell out in a second. So the price is a little high, but not that crazy. Universe Ruination goes for $65+ on eBay, and that thing is hideous!
    It's a Walmart exclusive; Target is getting the Magnus/Skywarp set.

    The price is quite hefty. I wonder if the huge markup is, maybe, due to somebody buying them in Hong Kong at retail price, then selling them to Joel at a profit, then gets shipped (add a bit more to the price), then Joel adds his markup. I assume Hong Kong because there were plenty alt Nemesis Primes and Classics Magnus and Skywarp giftsets on eBay from there, and that's what BBTS had a large markup on previously.

    Anybody else got a theory? I just can't buy that Joel would add a huge markup on this item, that could possibly alienate customers, so I think he's covering the costs of sourcing with these steep prices.

    Isn't the rumored retail price on this one $19.99, too? If so... wow... tripled for your convenience.

    I have no idea how many of these I'll be able to find. (None of the W*Ms around me have any Classics out yet.) But if I can, I'll offer to pick these up and send them to folks for my cost plus shipping. No one should feel forced to pay BBTS's ridiculously hiked price.

    I'll just wait until the set shows up on Ebay.
