    No way I'm shelling out that kinda money. Quick, somebody run over to Curt's table (TFSource) @ Botcon and ask him what his price will be!

    wow. This is why I only order from BBTS as a last resort. That's insane. If this is the actual price, count me out.

    You're a little late dude! We've already been talking about it & we're trying to figure out a way to get them for a decent price. Hopefully TFsource will get it for a better price than BBTS.

    It's a $90 markup & a lot of "insane" people have already pre-ordered for that price.

    (I just know I'm gonna flamed for that one!)

    And you know damned well that it will be well above that once these things start to hit FEE BAY and all the normal "Mark UP" starts......

    I just can't believe they would mark it up THAT much! I am sorry but it really is ridiculous.

    It's a bit of a munter, innit? The colourscheme's horrible - the enormous amount of bright blue's really jarring me, and with the whole of the lower legs in that one colour with no detailing? Yuck - looks like an amateur job to me.

    $220 - extreme LOL! I expected to see an insane markup from reading the thread title, but not THAT much.

    Not a chance.
