    because they can charge what they want and since those 2 will be the most popular they know ppl will pay it for in fear of having a hard time finding them at retail.

    When you consider they cost $12.99 at retail, the extra $5 is not that huge when you consider you might end up spending that much driving around stories looking for them. Consider it a finders fee to save yourself the hassle of having to do what could potentially be dozens of wasted trips where you come back empty handed.

    Or just buy the set of 4 and pay 12.49 a piece. Less than some retail stores and no tax.

    and at that price, I'll take 1 United Wheeljack, thank you!


    The Hasbro version is not worth 18 bucks, especially when you could go to Kohl's and pick them up for 8.50 once they start showing up regularly :lol

    yeah and how many folks thought about waiting for skystalker to show everywhere to get him....and how many folks ended up with the short end of the stick on that one....

    you are not automatically going to have every figure hit saturation at normal retail stores...characters like windcharger, kup and wheeljack are going to be scalper targets for sure...so there are tons of fans who would rather just grab a preorder and have it shipped to them...

    I grabbed the carton of 8 for the $97 price...i am going to keep a few of the others and ebay the rest...the demand with those characters guarentee that they will all sell fast....

    Wheeljack just needs the 539 stickers. Without those, he looks a bit naked lol. Wonder if the United version will have the 539, just like Tracks has the flames from g1.

    They were 16 when they went up. BBTS do stuff like that, unfortunately.
    The exact same thing happened with Kup and Scourge.



    I'm farily sure Reprolabels will pick up the slack there.
