    I noticed that these were not at the SDCC this year so I went onto Calibre Collectibles website (Calibre - home) and looked at the Transformers Bumblebee and Optimus Prime they are planning to put out later this year and to my surprise they have the MSRP for them on there now. The MSRP for Bumblebee is $1099 and the MSRP for Optimus Prime is $1399. Yes those prices are the actual ones and I must admit I am pretty shocked at the prices as I was hoping they would be a lot cheaper then that. Anyways I don't think anyone has posted this info about these so I thought I would share this since I found it but if this has been posted then well mods you can delete this thread then. Here are some screen caps I took of Bumblebee and Optimus as they state the price on each one.

    These are nice, but nowhere NEAR worth the price they're asking for them. Wow. That they even have the guts to ask that much...

    I would love to get them both, but over $1000 is just too much!

    The Bee at Botcon looked nowhere near worth $500 that I was guessing it would be. This os just pathetic.

    Some customizers sell non-transformable "masterpiece" figures made of various existing Transformers parts for almost that much sometimes, so why not? Those statues are super accurate and not made from junkers.

    If I win the lottery I will probably get these but unless that happens no sale for me. I've got to save up for some Hot Toys I'm wanting to get later this year. Which I still may need to win the lottery for those too lol. These do look pretty damn cool though they look to have their own display stand with you never really seem to get even with masterpieces. Also these are not exclusives not that I know of.

    Very cool figures, If I had that kind of money to burn, I would get my hands on BB more than OP because IMHO the SSC version is still far superior. But at a suggested retail price of $1,199.99 it's WAY too expensive. Hope they would consider making it more affordable....
