    Man, Takara is just going to make me break the bank this year!

    That said, this is an awesome awesome lineup we're getting for the Masterpiece line.

    Soundwave at that price with one single tape triggers my "Seriously?" reflex.

    Betting on Ravage or Frumbly with the Soundblaster repaint. It's properly mercenary. :)

    Current exchange rates put Soundwave at $199. Let's see if BBTS honors their $139 pre-order price.

    Definitely will be interesting to see.

    If they don't raise the price on the original $139 preorders, a $60+ dollar retail loss on each figure is HUGE.

    The almost have to raise the prices now.

    Edit: They probably won't lose $60 plus dollars on each figure per se because their cost to buy each figure from Takara is still below $199. But they're sure to take some type of loss on each one depending on what their markup normally is based on what they actually pay. $139 has to be pretty close to cost for them.

    Damn, MP-14 being Alert means they'll probably use two MP slots for the upcoming Skywarp and Thundercracker.

    Soundwave's price increase isn't welcome but it looks like Lambor and Alert prices have been lowered to $58,50. Last time I checked they were $78 or something.

    Hmm...so what exactly was TCracker hinting at since MP-14 has turned out to be the Red Alert that we've known was coming for a while...?

    Soundwave will be mine. Don't care about Sideswipe or Red Alert.

    I think things are going to turn bad if they back out but that is a deep discount.

    I agree I think he was thinking of another figure when he said

    And this is why you wait for solid info from the people who are actually making the things.

    Wow, at that price the third party one has a chance again.

    And if Red Alert really is MP-14, then that sucks, big time.

    If you preordered SW at $139 and they honor it, you look like a genius. I don't see the problem with preordering early with BBTS.
