    So I'm not sure where they all came from, but seemingly every toy store in Malaysia has been flooded with first edition Arcees and Cliffjumpers. Hell, I even saw a bunch of FE Vehicons just sitting there.

    If you're still looking for FE stuff, might be a good time to look for friends in Malaysia or lowered prices on eBay.

    It's the restock wave, which had like 3 Arcees, 3 Cliffjumpers and 2 Vehicons.

    Between that wave, the US and Canadian Waves, the abundance of Bulkheads [either version] and the shining Voyager Optimus, I'm sure that everybody that wanted a FE figure now has one.

    It's not just Malaysia I think, they've also showed up in Hong Kong and the Philippines. Personally though, I'm hoping Takara re-issues some of their FEs. I want the Takara edition Bulkhead and Optimus. Have you seen the prices on those things? Heck Takara Optimus even outpaces Shining Optimus pricewise.

    I had some TakaraTomy Bulkheads at retail price and couldn't sell them. The market is saturated. If you haven't found one by now, you're just not looking ;) 

    About the only FE toy that's still rare is Optimus...

    Wow, I'd love to get my hands on a first edition Bulkhead (Hasbro or Takara). What is the retail price of one of those? I've seen the Hasbro version on eBay for around $70 shipped. I know that shipping from half way around the world can be around $20, so is the retail price really $50?

    I'm curious too. What is the shipping cost from Malaysia to the US? And the pricing per figure?

    I more interested in those retail UNITED FIGURES. Instead of the ridiculous 50$ price points we in the states get rammed for

    I thought toys on the whole were cheaper in the US as compared to the other countries? For Example, Star Wars figure cost around $10 or under? But in my country it costs almost double, which is inflated even if one takes into account the exchange rates.

    Yes, if you're talking about US/Hasbro releases.

    But when it comes to Japanese/Asia stuffs then we, the Asia folks, will have the upper hand. :drunk

    Yep. However, chances are they wouldn't take Canadian Tire money, so I'd probably still have to lose a little in the middle getting a currency conversion. Better than paying for shipping, though.

    Funny the only thing that has me happy in that pic is that Wipe Out/Windcharger two pack.

    It's not only in Malaysia. Here in the Philippines, there's been a restock of FE Vehicons, Arcee, Cliffjumpers and Bulkheads. We also got the Fall of Cybertron toys out already. :D
