    Great, I love BBTS but this is getting kind of ridiculous. I going to setup a pre-order for cold fusion on the chance that it might get created, $2,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000.34

    I disagree. We know this will be a mass release in Japan which they'll be able to get. It should be less than $200 but it's a new mold so $200 is the safe price to put. They said they'll lower it once they know more.

    I thought Masterpiece Grimlock was only in the $130 range? What gives with this price unless they're being "preliminary" and riding a hype train?

    It looks like they don't know what the price will be but the $200 is a "placeholder" I bet it will be less.

    That's nuts, even for a place holder price. I'm going to wait to preorder until concret information about the release is, well, released from TakaraTomy.

    Well according to the description:

    I see this as a good guesstimate since it looks like this will have a trailer.

    It will be 15750 yen which is about 179.75 USD excluding shipping.
    Same points and same price for the 2010 Predaking.

    I'll likely join in, but the price is a bit higher than I thought. I'll have to think about it.

    Ha!

    Yeah, there's no way I'm biting until there's more than a drawing.

    I want to see some prototype images and a estimated release date from Takara before I commit to this.
