    How much would these cost if you managed to find one in a Japanese store?

    The equivalent of our 9.99? That would make me sad...

    Ebay:
    If you look on Ganbo's website they are listed for between 3100-3500 yen -- so between $30-$35 USD approximately

    Yep $30 a pop. Which is a third more than the $20 a pop of Japanese retail for these guys.

    And you could only pre-order then during the pre-order period 6 months ago.

    Will all you guys that want these guys just buy them and stop the insanity. I believe we're averaging like 3 or 4 threads a day on these guys! or at least it seems like it. ;)

    It's no where near as bad as it was in 2007 about the botcon set.

    Yea, just wait till they sell out finally. It got even worse after ppl (like myself) realized that they weren't going to be available through TFCC's shop after the convention.

    I got mine this time so I'm content to just sit back and watch the show this time around :popcorn

    Thrust and Dirge are selling out faster then TC and SW did, even with the high price. Although I noticed that TC and SW are starting to sell out at the online stores. I have both sets now :)

    Same. I spent pretty much ALL the Christmas money I got from grand-mother buying Thrust and Dirge. Do I regret it? Not for a second.
