    I wish I'd gotten one of these to keep MISB when they were only $20 at Wal-Mart...

    I saw this a couple days ago. It's tempting because I like this mold a lot, but $69.99 is too expensive for me. Maybe if they drop the price a little, I'd consider getting it.

    $70 is way too much for me. :(  I wish Hasbro would rerelease these and sell them at a reasonable price on HTS or something.

    I agree, I like the figure. But not that much.

    One of the best molds in the line for sure.

    BBTS' price is steep, but I don't know of anywhere to get a better deal. Avg ebay selling price is between $50-75 dollars. And finding a loose one is very hard.

    His value is not going to go down anytime soon, unless he is sold in other countries in decent quantity.

    Glad I got him at retail...I actually picked up a few of them and sold to board members as well, and I have a custom Arcee out of a Mirage. (He wasn't that rare at the time)

    Funny how they ended up doing KP Roddy as well as Alt Roddy - Now Arcee and Rodimus have the same alt mode...

    Multi-language packaging might well mean that they got their stock from Canada, where alt Mirage has still been continually popping up still (along with Meister, Prime) in TRUs for the last year and is just disappearing now (distribution related, invertedly, we got little of some of what the US got most of).

    A Wal-Mart in Toronto a few months ago got huge stocks of this wave (also Rollbar and Richochet) for $10 each! That's right, $10! They mostly went to scalpers who of course sold the Mirages for big bucks.

    In any event large stocks of him have been around in Canada and obviously available for cheap one way or another so they probably got them from the Great White North.
