    Where is the best/cheapest place to buy these? I know it will be expensive, but relative to shipping costs, etc., who has the best prices/deals?

    The price on this guy has gone insane in the last two months. The places I have seen that have one left are listed at or above $250. Some as high as $300. Those numbers don't include shipping.

    Dude, you are not lying. A few months ago I almost bought him at around 175.00 with shipping, about 195.00 Now it is upwards of 250.00. If I can find his trailer...not justittoys one, I will snatch it for my dvd prime (he already has the long smokestacks.). Oh well...

    Dude this almost happened to me. I bought DVD prime a couple months back on ebay for $42 with shipping but canceled the sale halfway through because I knew in the long run I would want an MP-01 with a trailer, and I also knew that if (and when) they sold him like that he'd go like hot cakes.

    For $195 (including shipping) I got MP-04 and 6' Titanium Ultra Magnus MISB from BBTS. Now if you look for that pair, and if youre lucky enough to find them from the same retailer, they can go upwards of $250-350.

    Don't feel bad...I passed on MP-04 about a month and a half back in order to pick up MP-02. I didn't think MP-04 would spike so quicky because of the high supply of MP-01...oh well. Now my MP collection will forever be incomplete. Just like my Classics!

    TFSource had MP-04 a couple of days ago at $220 but now its up to $250.

    I was fortunate enough to get mine from BBTS for $159.99. Perfect box and everything too. I was debating between MP-01 and MP-04 but went with the latter cause it's more unlikely to be re-released.

    You know what sucks is that there was a guy on the junk exchange about a month ago selling a MP-04 trailerless still in it's original packaging for $75 shipped.

    Well, I have the DVD Prime, so mostly interested in the trailer anyway. I would prefer MP-04, but I am gonna look around to see if someone is just selling the trailer anywhere.

    Well its nice to see I actually have something that has gone up in price. :p 

    I got him from BBTS last year, and so far he is the only item I've ever left MISB. I already have 20th Anniversery Prime out.

    Maybe someday I'll open him up for the trailer.

    Whew, I thought I was making a crap purchase after passing MP-03 for MP-04.

    Eat it, The System.

    I'll never sell the guy, though. Just look at those blue eyes!
