why is the TAKARA Mini Bots so much more expensive then the Encore ones?
They're both Takara sets.
OK why is one more expensive then the other?
Just to be clear you're talking about the TF Collection #12 vs Encore #10 right?
Not sure if it the TF Collection #12 had a small run or not but it does include a 6th figure and was released a few years ago. As opposed to Encore #10 only having 5 figures and released a month or so ago.
Plus I think there are more fan favorites in Collection #12 than what Encore #10 has.
Agreed. However, the encore version Bumblebee has differences, I think.
Because one set was made 5 years ago and is totally different other than bumblebee... ( less paint on him too)
And one came out a month ago and is still readily available.
Yes, they are different I posted a gallery. It is more expensive becasue it has been out longer and that set of bots is desired more.
The TFC minibots are made in much smaller quanteties, this is confirmed. The encores are all well made in large quanteties.
Then it dosent get cheaper its been out for 4-5 years ago
