    It was going to happen eventually.


    I wonder if Tomy have hiked the price up.

    I spent $150 on mine earlier this year. I'm not mad though, it makes me hope that other expensive reissues will be released again (Starscream, Minibots, etc...). And I might pick up another one to deck out with that nifty Reprolabels upgrade set.

    Woo, glad I unloaded mine before this news broke. Probably wouldn't have got as much then.

    About $150, it's going rate at the time. Still sat on my desk under a pile of bills.

    Waste of money.

    The price...
    The re-release of MP-01 didn't have a different price tag, did it? If they didn't change the price on that, I don't think this Megatron re-release would see much of a price change (maybe a $10-$15 bump up?).

    For those of you who intend to get this from BBTS:


    IIRC, they passed on TFC Megatron the first time around due to the legal issues surrounding it. So, they may do so again.

    Yeah, damn, I totally forgot about that, hit me up on PM and we'll thrash it out. Like men.

    Oiled up men.

    In leather thongs.

    I bet that with the new direction that Takara/Tomy are taking it will be remoulded to resemble a penis.

    Assuming it's left the same though, I still don't have much interest. I've got an original, although he's not in all that great condition. Still, I'm sure there are plenty of folks out there who will want him.
