    Hey, since I didn't go to the con I was wondering if someone could tell me what this three pack originally sold for. I'm looking to buy me a set but I don't want to over pay too much.

    Little too early to tell. We need to let the dust settle first.

    So far, I have seen a set of 3 go for as low as $139 and as high as $220 (free shipping though) on eBay.

    EDIT: For being so "rare," I see about 30 sets on eBay. Plus about 10 or so have already been sold there. Very sad.

    it always comes down to the original botcon owner's want...troop builders or the chance to quadruple the $ spent for the set...and as you can see with ebay...the motivation there is $$$...cannot blame them though...with time spent in line...easy way to make back part of the $$$ spent on the trip.

    Oh, I don't blame someone that is selling maybe one set or even two. It's the guys that are selling 3+ sets. That bothers me.

    Well, I know I would pay around $150. That is a good price for me. Haven't seen much of that atm.

    I think i paid 167 or 172(cant remember), not bad considering theyre selling for 75-85 seperately. So in some sort of way I got a decent deal I guess. I think if I wouldve had more patience, I couldve gottena better deal. owell.

    That's not horrible. I just don't want to pay 175+ for all three. That is not happening ;)

    I hate guaging prices on new toys, for the fact that the toys that I say I'm not buying at a certain price, just keep going up in price. This happened to me on the henkei wildrider, had a chance to buy one at 100-said no, had a chance to buy at 180-said no, etc. Now i cant or wont even try and touch him.

    Yeah, that is the worry for collectors. So I can understand why you (and others) don't want to wait.

    Honestly, if you are happy with the purchase, then great. It's easy for someone like me to be critical, but if you have the money, good for you.

    This. At the end of the day, if youre happy with the purchase, thats all that matters. I bought all of the exclusives yesterday when the prices were somewhat decent(IMO), but my wallet is still hurting. I think this years exclusives blow away the boxset, so thats where my money went, plus they fit into the SG verse(my SG verse)-so i'm happy with that too.

    I got the set for $200 shipped. I guess it's not bad. And the guy told me that there has been talk about quality control on some of the toys. Broken pieces or missing parts. He offered to open the figures and check them out. He said FP would replace defective figures but only at the con.
