    If it needs a thread cool, but someone posted this in the other threads (MP-13 speculation and BBTS in stock thread) for the people handing out news credits.

    It says it's not final pricing but I don't see why they should even bother to put it up at the wrong price.

    Why would anyone even preorder this early. Was there ever a MP figure that sold out 1 month of its release date?

    Ha! I will preorder one for it's true price when it goes up at AmiAmi.
    I think BBTS does this because the number of people placing preorders this early at that price will give them a good idea of just how much otaku tax they can charge.

    I'll wait for a U.S. release if it ever comes. I just can't believe how jacked up the price is for the Takara MP line as a whole.

    $160...go screw BBTS (and yes i buy a lot from you)! This figure should be FAR FAR less. Better be subject to price DECREASE. lol $160. MP-11 was $160 and that is a far larger figure. The whole point of making the smaller autobot car MPs was to have less expensive MP's filling the line between the bigger releases.

    its not even an exclusive like sunstorm was and even that dropped from what $270 to $180?

    Message to BBTS at $160....not buying it. i'm sure everyoen in this thread will say the same. i guess i'll go through other channels (RK, amiami, even hlj, etc.).

    The thing I don't understand is why even post a price? If you think it is subject to price decrease, just post that as the price.

    Ready, you can post PENDING.

    woulda-coulda-shoulda. Determine what you think the toy is worth, then work backwards in an attempt to justify the conclusion.


    If Takara think they can get away with a price that works at out at $160 once US dealers are done with it, that's what they'll charge.
