    I really, really want this set (boxed). I couldn't attend the con and didn't have the money when the non-attening preorder came up, so I have to resort to ebay. Do you guys think the prices will go down in time? Seems to me they are going up and there are less sets on ebay than before. Help!

    Well there are many more boxed sets coming for non-attendees in a month or more. I can't say prices will go down much, if at all, but there should be more available down the line when those non-attendees decide to sell.

    Do you think it could go as low as $400 at least? (yes, I'm suffering:(  )

    I guess I'd have to say either wait it out and see, or try to get them bagged. Trust me, unless you're planning to keep them enshrined (a pity to get it then) in that box, it's going to be of no use other than to part you from $100+ (well, I swallowed my pride anyway, and couldn't be happier). But it's your life, your money and your decision. Who really know what will happen.

    for once i believe the three seekers from the box set will be more sought after than the exclusives in this set. and with classics line continuing, i dont think the seekers will come down anytime soon.

    Normally I'd say just wait it out and the price will come down, but being that this box is sold out completely, and the value has been set pretty much at around the $500 - 600 range, you are probably not gonna find it lower than $400 on eBay, best to track down some members in person to arrange a deal.

    You are saying track down members of this forums? I am new to this forums and didn't know I could get that kind of help here. If anyone is willing to sell me one for $400, that would be awesome. Please pm me or e-mail me at edidu@sbcglobal.net . thanks!!

    Man...ebay prices really scare me! A single Classics Thundercracker went for $140! $140! As much as I want to complete the original seekers, no way am I going to send that much on a such a small plastic figure! I can use the cash to buy cooler stuff like some SOC etc. Tops I will pay is $50.

    It's insane to spend that much money on repaints of toys whose originals are much better. I'd rather buy another SS or SW and repaint him myself.

    they messd up on the box set this year i'm told, and even atendees who pre registered got cut short. The late arrivals were given bagged sets instead, because they were all out of boxed sets, much to thier disapointment, wich left them short on bagged sets much later in the weekend.

    so it's pretty much confirmed that this boxed set will NOT COME DOWN IN PRICE, and for the first time, my be n shorter supply than the suvener sets.

    i'm so glad i got this set.

    Bagged set seems like the way to go.


    If anyone does i'll be rather impressed.
