    I didn't bother with Skywarp. Have the Hasbro version. Couldn't swing the $140 for both.

    That's strange that they show Starscream on the back of the package instead of TC...

    I ofcourse want this as much as anyone, and I don't mind paying $$$ for stuff thats worth it... I just don't know if its worth it.

    I have Classics Starscream & TC, and Acid Storm now. Paying $75 though for $5 worth of plastic that you can buy in different colors for $10 all day... its hard to justify.

    I could accept the Botcon prices because they were so limited, but this just really feels like were being price gouged hard on a new toy that is really nice and all but defintely no where near a MP grade and no one minds it.

    It's not as limited as botcon but it is still a limited production toy. It's not going to be part of the main henkei line from my understanding. $200 for the botcon Excul. and $70/75 for the Henkei excul. sounds about fair for all the hoops you had to jump thru to get one.

    Damn, tempting, but I'd rather complete my MP seekers, and 70$ would go a long way at helping me reach that goal :p

    $75 shipped (what Bodhar was charging) is fair. BBTS is getting it's usual gouge ($75 before shipping). Robotkingdom is charging $60 before shipping.

    Everyone should remember that the cost of one of these is fairly high. Especially for overseas buyers. Remember these were ONLY being sold to a Japanese address. That's key cause it sends costs way up. As you have to ship it twice. Once inside Japan and then overseas. Add the $30 per unit for the figure itself, $10 more than the normal $20 Japanese retail for a deluxe. And boom high price. A seller in Japan could charge as little as $45 each (before shipping). But they won't I bet.

    I got both of these preordered. Honestly it's a bit steep, but darn it I want a complete trio for once you know? And this was part of my awesome tax return money. Besides I'm still gonna get the mp seekers just gonna wait until there's a flood of tc's so the price stabilizes.

    Anyone know the final run on these guys since they said they were only making enough to cover the orders placed?
