    So out here in San Diego Prime figures are non exsistant. So I have been watching fleabay for Arcee and Starscream. I found a seller that has a BIN of 39.95 with 7.50 S&H. Now I know except for the odd ocassion you are going to be paying over what you would see in the store. I was wondering do you think this is worth it? BTW this is CONUS not overseas or anything like that.

    I have a Starscream for sale on amazon for $23.19 plus shipping. I would not pay more then triple retail for a figure unless you cannot buy it in the store anymore or it just does not exist to purchase easily.

    They'll be eveywhere in a couple of months, unless you're impatient, and video reviews have you convinced you gotta have it yesterday... no.

    They will be everywhere in a couple of weeks, not even months. Why the rush?

    Dude, if you have the time, just do what I'm gonna do - go out at, like, 3AM on friday morning. I'll bet the TRUs will have at least a few out.

    I will answer all three questions. Yes I am impatient LOL. 1 I got Bee and Prime and I am hooked.2 I have a little spending money from a few figures I sold, 3 sorry no matter how bad I want a toy there is NO WAY I am going anywhere near a store on fri. I have heard reports of people already camping out at Best Buys and ToysRuses (sp?)

    Just wait. Impatience is one of the worst characteristics you can have in this hobby.

    Make that $22.49 had to drop the price to stay the lowest.

    My guess it that they will be available on-line within a couple days. There is no reason to spent that much on a $10-$13 figure

    I overpay all the time. In the long run though it all evens out.

    Like I just paid $65 shipped for Junkheap and Blackshadow from HK.

    And this is after reports of them showing up in stores. My nearest TRU are a 60 mile round trip. I spent $25 on gas coming up empty handed to run out to 2 different TRU. Crazy that Tampa has no Toys R Us. There used to be one up the street 1 mile away that was always busy. No idea why it went out of business. There was also FAO Schwartz 1 mile away in the mall and they closed as well although their prices were high.
