    Preorder sold out. At $0.00, I would have bought a bunch!

    $119.99 so I take under (barely). Their prices are usually on par with Ebay going rate or slightly under.

    Hahaha, would be funny (and sad) if some joker threw all the MP TCs in his preorder cart. XD

    But I was wondering if BBTS would carry this. The mark up will probably be rage-inducing.

    BBTS is weird. Some stuff is hugely marked up, others are fairly reasonable and under ebay price.

    Like they didn't put up too huge a mark-up on Mattycollector subscription stuff. But then some of their SDCC exclusive stuff is outrageous.

    The price will probably come down to what they get them for.

    If they're able to get them at distribution cost, price would likely be close to TRU. After all, they did have MP Skywarp (Walmart) for $85. If they're getting them from scalpers and TRU employees trying to make bank, expect to see some big mark up.

    The unintended consequence of course, is that BBTS will be setting the secondary market price that scalpers will seek - so let us hope for low.

    It's TRU exclusive, but you can always get in with the supply chain or get creative to acquire these, we won't know much until they post a price of course.

    I'm guessing they picked up some from their local TRUs or elsewhere? It's a sought after item, so Big Bad getting some isn't surprising.

    Stuff like this, BBTS will have employees clear out the local TRUs of exclusives. You're kind of fucked if you live near them.

    Yeah we have seen them do this with most exclusives. It sucks for collectors near them since they wont get much of a shot at getting them.
