    I was a little sad seeing it sold out, but when I saw the price, I was relieved...

    The metallic version rocks. This way, when I hold it, I can see an idiot who will pay whatever without question. Lets see the regular one do that!

    [QUOTE:BBTS]A quick explanation of the pricing on this item - In order for BBTS to obtain this item, we have a variety of buyers in Japan shopping their local convenience stores, we had to pay about twice the retail cost in Japan + shipping to get them here. The $79.99 price is in line with our normal markups, but our base cost was quite high.

    This figure also contains a commemorative Transformers Movie Ticket, good at theaters in Japan. [/QUOTE]

    So....basically their justification is that they had to pay a bit more to scalp these off so they are charging 80 for a freaking deluxe..

    But you DO get a ticket to see the movie...in Japan -_-
