    I'd say $18, one-third the set's cost.

    Seriously? No "market price" has been set yet on figures that are new to specialty retailers and unannounced, but fairly inevitable, for mass release at a U.S. retailer.

    Which is why he wants to sell it fast, before we see the whole thing at Wal-mart endcaps for $25.

    so you want to accuse me of trolling in the MP Grimlock Sighted in US thread and you drop in with comments like this??

    WTF is your problem?

    If you have something against what i am saying in a thread...move down the road and keep your attitude to your self.

    Agreed. It is a bit difficult to manage too many eBay auctions.

    My mistake. Someone intimately acquainted with scalping should have no issue at all in managing multiple auctions on eBay. I apologize for my erroneous assumption.

    I know someone was trying to sell each figure for 30 bucks a piece plus shipping. Not sure if he got it but i'm really surprised people are even paying to import these. This is in a hasbro box and will be at Walmart/Target sometime in the near future for 20-30 bucks.

    Oh well, I guess it shouldn't surprise me, given the fact people spent 60 bucks on DLC WFC codes that you can now buy for 10 bucks:lol

    like my earlier post said...i got it for cyclonus and galvatron...The henkei versions are way too expensive compared to the price of this on BBTS...plus i like the color scheme of these two decepticons better than the hasbro versions...so for me $64 off BBTS was a deal...was not going to take a chance in missing out at a store for these...I missed out on classics devastator when he was released at walmart...the ones here never got him in stock and i also missed out on ROTF bruticus...

    Well, I think Henkei/Classics Galvatron will forever be cheap:lol . As for Cyclonus, I do like this version but i'll pick it up once I see it in stores. In Austin, we usually get plenty of transformer stock so i'm never worried about missing an exclusive. I can play the waiting game

    That's if it does het a U.S. release. It will not be in the same packaging if it does though. Going by the packaging in the Asian market is not the way to gauge its release since they package the toys just like they do here in the U.S.

    I thought it was pretty much confirmed that this item was coming stateside? Maybe i'm wrong but either way, i'll only buy this set if it gets a US release, otherwise, i'll be happy with my Henkei Rodimus and the Sons of Cybertron set:thumbs2:

    Both great figures in my opinion. I don't think we got 100% confirmation. Just a pretty sure but not sure. I got the set today, and I love it. For roughly $20 a figure it was worth it considering I didn't have rodimus. I can just use my Universe Cyclonus as Cyclonus' armada.
