    retail online roughly about $49 to $53. and hobby shops around here go for $65 plus tax. That's why I found it odd that someone got it for $37 USD!!! That's just insane! Unless the guy was from overseas and paid for it in US currency.

    My guess is someone was quoting the yen price translated into dollars. If you live in Japan you can get one now for $35-$37. Gotta get one soon...the red ones are gone already!

    1) That could be the price before shipping, which you can find on ebay.

    2) He could have gotten it as part of a bulk deal.

    3) He buys a sh*tload of tf's and has a lot of hookup. If you buy it direct from somebody that buys wholesale in Japan I can see $37 as a realistic price.

    Yep. I picked up Super Black Convoy and Megatron for 3750 yen each in Kyoto (at Super Kids Land). I'll be giving both away for free in my next photo contest.
