    TOYSRUS Optimus



    Not sure if this is old news or not but $90 wow wasn't he only $65-$70 before? I guess the severalI bought at $35 were real deals. $20 for a base isn't worth it at allfor me, I guess I'll wait for him to hit clearence again.

    Actually, he was $80+ at TRU the first time around. And this release might be more expensive to cover the cost of the electronic voice box/stand thingie.

    except that you lose all the chrome as well, so that kinda offsets some of the cost I'd like to think.

    Well in the UK, normal 20th Prime is £50... thats $93 US already.

    And he's warming shelves nicely too. When he drops in price (if he drops) I'll probably nab one, but until then (if ever) my MP01 and MP02 will have to keep me company.

    That's almost as much as I paid to import the Japanese MP-01
