    It's not a huuuge price difference if you factor in shipping and import fees. Not to mention you'd get it there and now, instead of waiting

    Personally I expect him to have a premium Buster Prime paint job to warrant the $175-$225 price range

    Just got mine from BBTS, its an amazing figure, the wings are more shiny silver while the guns are more of a gun metal color well worth the $175. The figure is a leader Class which I think looks better with the remold than ROTF Leader prime. I am keeping this guy sealed next to Buster!

    I would not pay $225, even with the convenience of having it right away.

    Hmmm if ordered him from BBTS with priority shipping it would be the same (actually a few bucks more)

    I saw that figure at the Con, too. Looks cool but I passed because of the price tag. You should try to bargain for it.

    Yep, he's been available Australia for weeks now and he's about $150, so he's pretty cheap.
