    Anyone else notice the prices on the Lawson Blackouts dropping since the premium series was announced? I snagged one on ebay for $45.00. Theres another going for $20.00 right now. I bet some collectors are pissed.

    Quite natural when the same product's going to end up more readily available at retail. I'm sure more than a couple of people who got them right away are pissed!

    which just goes to show you shouldnt spend money on something just because its rare. If you truely like and wanted the figure it shouldnt matter if there is another version. I cant wait till Takara releases its own version of classics thundercracker

    Its something special to own something rare. I just feel bad for the ones that spent over $100 to $200 for the thing.

    I'm still waiting for reissues of the dino cassettes.

    That would make for some fun times.

    I think the tail number markings on the premium are different to the Lawson going by the pictures, thats got to put the price up on the Lawson! [j/k]

    The saying is true.

    And now that the Premium is comming out, the price the purchaser will pay is falling.

    It would cause the fandom to implode. And I would sit back with my cheap (well, comparably) new Dino Cassettes and laugh maniacally.
