    I pre-ordered one. Shrug. I can not think of a time I have seen Joel put something up for pre-order that wasn't actually being produced.

    Quint-05 doesn't count :(

    I like how BBTS makes up their prices without knowing what Takara sets MSRP at. Genius. More reason why I shouldn't ever shop from them.

    yeah, I was going to say how can you price something that isn't going to happen? Unless they just ship you an empty box and say the Ghost of Starscream is in there.

    If online stores all start to do pre-order for this, why an email that saying it is a prank and all people believe it?
    Business men are not stupid, a lot of time smarter than many of us here...

    They usually pull a number out of their asses, but once they know the actual price they adjust it for you if it is less than what they guessed. I have pre ordered figures from them before where they were actually $50 cheaper and they send you an email to let you know. I have also pre ordered figures that turned out to be more than the price and they honored the original pre order price.

    its called hedging their bets they have preorders up in case Takara does release it and yet with coming soon the can drop the listing with a minimal of trouble.

    Yeah...it's nuts that they would do it, but they all do. Also I love when they say "temporarily out of stock..order now and we will ship it when it arrives"

    BBTS and Robotkingdom have Pre orders up for something that's supposed to be a hoax. I guess maybe it isn't a hoax at all.

    Who are we to believe? RK and BBTS, or some guy in Singapore that says he made it up.

    I for one would love to add a MP Ghost Screamer in my collection

    BBTS posted on their twitter this morning that it was actually confirmed, so maybe they heard something we didn't yet? Maybe the prank was a prank? Doesn't matter to me, I'm not ordering it either way, but will be interesting to see how this turns out.

    I think Takara may have realized there's more money to be made on this mold. And we know how much they love to use the same molds.
