    Actually, that's not too bad. I feel somewhat better. Off to ebay!

    Did not know they were sold out anywhere :lol . Just wait, I'm sure they'll restock. The $20 BBTS price jump is a little disappointing though.

    You think they'll be restocked? What would the timeframe be? There are still a few non-US stores selling at close to the original cost, but shipping pushes it to ebay territory. I need some version of MP SS to complete my season 1 seekers. I would like it to be MP-11, but PP03 is looking more and more atttractive to me price-wise...

    I bought mine off of Ebay for $180. With super rare special edition limited collector's coin!

    Or do you mean you bought the super rare coin for $180 and they threw in some plastic toy? ;)

    I got one off of eBay just over a month ago for $168 shipped. With patience and a little luck, you can still find them out there for close to the original price.

    I was following some Shanghai seller who was offering at that price, but as his stock has gone down his price has gone up. I technically saved up the money that I could afford his scarcity markup, but the principle had me down. Especially when I have a lovely and well modded WalScream already on the shelf.

    Still, patience may be the victor today. If only to prove to the collector in me that the virtue still exists.

    They've been creeping up in price since Thundercracker and Sunstorm came out. Now I'm regretting not getting one the first in the first round. Ah well... just gotta watch eBay.

    The prices on US MP Skywarp have really shot up in the last few weeks as well. Seeker ripple effect, I guess. :)

    ^Yea, I've been trying to score a US SKywarp for under $50, but it's just not possible. I was actually thinking that the new mold would make the old one temporarily cheaper. Even the junkers are going for at least $50.

    I predicted this wld happen. With no sign of a Hasbro or Takara upgrade for Skywarp in the foreseeable future, I'm sure folks are scrambling to get whatever version they cld find to complete there seeker trio.

    I'm glad I got mine from Toy Arena as soon as I did. I always like buying the newest Transformers.

    I'm holding out hope that Hasbro brings him stateside.

    Man, it's frustrating. I want to get a Starscream to match my Thundercracker, but then there is Optimus coming out soon. And in addition there is Soundwave, Sideswipe, and Red Alert. Not to mention, that Not-Sixshot MP scaled figure is also looking good. On one hand, I am happy about the influx of new G1 figures. On the other hand, it sucks they all seem to be coming back to back.

    You probably used the same guy I was watching. They went up about 12 bucks since your purchase. Again, not a dealbreaker on its own, but as noted above: with all the other releases looks like I'm waiting on Hasbro. It's ok. Sometimes even if you can do something new you're better off taking some time to appreciate the old.

    I'm in the same boat as you. With the 3 MPs now on the horizon plus all the 3rd party goodness AN, some Asian exclusives iv been eyeing up, I feel like I really need to figure out what I want.
