    You do realize that's $40-70 cheaper than what some of the auctions and almost all of the BINs on eBay had been going for, correct?

    $34.90 isn't cheap, especially after shipping, but it's still a lot better than what the alternative had been for those that wanted one.

    Dude's right. $34.90 is a steal compared to Ebay prices. And considering I just bought a Uni 2.0 Starscream for $32, that doesn't seem all that bad.

    Although, perhaps I'll wait and see what becomes of this new news.

    Why do people have to whine about every damned thing? Especially the GOOD things? This is a chance for people to get him at an affordable price and they're still bitching? There's the door to the fandom, don't let it hit you on the way out.

    Seriously, if you can't be happy over this news, then you can't be happy over anything. If you're not enjoying it, then move out of my way and let me.

    *Preordered. Had some paypal credit, so $12 out of pocket's not too bad.

    You're overreacting. And whining more than the OP is.

    Good luck finding it cheaper.

    They won't make that many, in a few months supply will dry up, and soon enough it will be back up to the prices it was at before the re-released was announced.

    I didn't realize his "weapon" was a table saw. Awesome. Still not enough to make me buy him...

    Haha - you KNOW someone out there is thinking this.

    Personally, I don't even have an eBay account.

    Hmm...I was under the impression that this Wheeljack would be the one with the remolded head and G1 deco. I guess I'll pass then. The blue movie-accurate always looked ugly to me.

    I would have picked this up if I saw it in person, but importing it is not worth it to me at all, even at that price. HA Soundwave yes, Que no. I might bite if it were an HA.

    calm down...take a percocet, a xanax and chill. Nobody is whining. I made the post in hopes that people that want him can pre order him. I'm not sure I want him...and I'm sure there are other members who don't want him. Just because we pass on him doesn't mean we want to leave the hobby all together.

    Expect these to be the going prices for all the Hasbro Asia Exclusives. Perspectively, it's about the same price as importing and still cheaper then Botcon and Japanese convention exclusives.

    His accesories are great!

    I actually like his smaller tools even more than the saw and spear.

    But I'm not paying Takara prices for this guy.
