    I found 3 Devastators tonight! Didn't pick one up because of the $149.99 price tag.

    Edit: Found him at Puzzle Zoo in the Great State of Texas!!! There was one on the shelve and two behind glass.

    Well, if these weren't at a big chain retailer store, I'd expect the price to be significantly higher. But dang, an extra $40-$50 dollars?

    They will never sell at that price. They're going to have a tough time selling them at the recommended retail price of $99.99

    It begins. Also, I didn't know there were still Puzzle Zoo stores... then again, I only ever remember hearing about them because of some X-men exclusives they had back in the 90's.

    Yeah they were in Puzzle Zoo in Cali when I was there earlier in the week. I took a pass cause of the price. I was hoping this was a chain retailer like Walmart/Target/TRU. So far it seems like BBTS has the best of a terrible deal

    Puzzle Zoo stores always increase the price of their toys. By a lot. It's probably going to be closer to $100 when it hits regular stores

    I came real close to buying it. The thing does look a lot cooler in person. If they only transformed into robots. Not even sure if I am going to get one at the $99 mark.

    $100 is too much. $50 is closer to what I would pay... if I was going to buy it at all.

    There not going to be able to have those sell at all with prices that ridiculusly high.

    I mean, $100 dollars was already to much for the guy.

    Right now, $100 feels like a deal.

    $149 is probably what us Canadians will have to pay. D:<

    Small store markup ftf.

    Oh well. If they got it on shelves, then the big-box stores surely will soon. Time to start tossing my change into a jar.
