    Sounds good for the ones that doesn't have hookups.

    Not that bad actually.

    They have to go through a middleman in Japan. Then they're shipping from their warehouse in the US.

    This price is actually not unreasonable.

    Your sig says yes, I only want Skywarp though. Hopefully I'll end up splitting with somebody or they will be seperated eventually

    You sure those are Henkei? Looks like it might be for the Encore ones on those sites.
    I'll just see if I can get a 'Cracker off eBay at some point. Not too high on my list of priorities, though.

    Yes, those prices are for the Henkei. They are not listed on the sites - currently you have to email them through the contaact page requesting your order. O-D get back to you pretty fast, F2F can take a day or two when they are really busy.

    Price is too steep for my blood and I only want Thundercracker, anyway. Not both! So, a big ol' pass from me. Now, if BBTS would like to be nice and make them available seperately, then I'd reconsider getting TC from them.

    :confused2 

    This is good news right?

    I feel like the other shoe is going to drop where somehow this will be twisted into a bad thing for the fandom.

    I really don't see how it could be bad.

    The price is in line with the others I've seen listed. Give or take a few dollars here and there. The only possible complaint I see is selling them as a set rather than separately. And that's understandable, it may be how they got them, and they don't want to be stuck with extra Skywarps.

    Why are they so much? Are they chase figures? I thought the Henkei toys were expensive before, but this is rediculous.
