    I'll pass. I am happy with my pre-orders of encore Ironhide, Ratchet and the black Diaclone colors Ironhide.

    It isn't a bad price given the work involved in getting one.
    I would have preferred nearer $100 but at least it isn't ridiculous.

    Any good sites for preordering the black ironhide?

    I'll stick with the regular Encore series Ironhide and Ratchet. Have to save money.

    anyone know the distribution count on this? (if any)

    $149.99 will sound so much better if these were any bit limited. : \



    But then again, TomyTakara will just re-release it again anyways.

    They haven't reissued any other exclusive E-Hobby or Mail Away figures yet.. Can't see why they would start.

    $150 for puke green? Yikes. I love G1 repaints but not quite that much.

    The $70 Ironhide looks really nice (couldn't they have flipped those prices and still sold lots of black ironhides?) but I recently got my c9+ MIB Diakron black Ironhide for $110 and am happy to have paid $40 more for that.

    These are more than likely not going to sell due to their paint scheme, but will sell because they are such an exclusive. I may kick myself for not buying one a few months down the road when they are going for 400, or I may be happy keeping my money when they go on clearance. Who knows?

    $150? F*** That!

    It'll probably end up $120 somewhere else too, given the past trends with BBTS overpricing exclusives.

    I know this won't wind up with the demand of anime Astrotrain. If by some miracle it does, I'll just wait for the KO.

    I'm sorry I'd rather own the 2 exclusive IRONHIDE and RATCHET ENERGON MOLDS than any G1 IRONHIDE/RATCHET FIGURE any day of the week.

    $150 buys a lot of new stuff coming out. can't justify that much, esp. at christmas time for one item that would only be a shelf dandy anyways.

    lolz.

    Ironhide and Ratchet were reissued in 2001 as an eHobby shop exclusive limited to 1,000. Now the Encore series is bringing them back out.

    So this is a G1 figure with a new movie paint job? The toy lines have come full circle I guess.
