    they do but usually if you got a preorder in at a lower price the honor it , example i got my 2010 Predaking in at $179.99 and they are honoring it the price for my preorder hasn't risen, the current price for a preorder now is $184.99. So if you got your MP Rodimus in at the lower price odds are you will get it for that. I am willing to bet they would contact those who ordered a product that they had no choice but to raise the price on all preorders.

    Yeah, my Preorder is still at the 199 price. Guess this answers my question from a few months ago about why you should preorder early lol

    I cancelled my preorder with BBTS today.

    I'm gonna go with a group buy instead that's cheaper than $199.

    And how is this news? An online retailer raised the price of an item with increased desirability, happens all the time.

    Nope. The yen is pretty high right now compared to the US Dollar and adjustments must be made.

    This guy is worth every penny, even if it rose to $300 I would pay without hesitation, MP Rodimus Prime is set to be the masterpiece of all the masterpieces IMO!!!!!!

    you know, $200 when I want the Hot Rod part more than the Rodimus, so I am really leaning towards just going Hasbro on this. Maybe I will change my mind later, but he is really looking to rich for my blood.

    I certainly am. $200 for one figure, even a Masterpiece, is out of my comfort zone. Especially since the Hasbro version will be cheaper, and I won't miss the "trailer" at all.

    Yeah, I am opting for Protector instead. You can get the Hasbro MP Rodimus, the Battle in Space Two-Pack, and Protector for less than the cost of importing Takara MP Rodimus.

    Plus, that way Kup can advise Rodimus without looking way too small. :p
