    No one knows, we may not know until right before the convention if it plays out like last year.

    Common guesses seem to run in the $80 range due to the retail price of upcoming Generations deluxes ($14.99) plus the fancy packaging the set will come in.

    They were probably HIGH themselves .... I'd say around the $70/$80 mark

    Anyone saying it'll be $250 AT THE CONVENTION is being idiotic. The secondary market is a whole nother thing, but at the convention itself? No.

    I agree with the 70/80 range, but would not be surprised if it were $100.

    They'll sell some on Hasbro Toyshop after the con.

    But yeah, probably around $80-100. $75 retail, plus con-exclusive markup.

    220USD shipped from an ebay seller. What can I say, it is expensive but the guy has managed to sell 16 of them so far and he 'seems' reliable since he specializes in SDCC stuff.

    Those people are fools to do that.

    No one has patience anymore.

    For those who have that sort of money, I can give you a dozen charities to donate to.

    I have to admit, good on these guys for getting this stuff to people who might not otherwise be able to buy it, but I hate seeing these guys at SDCC. Every time one of them trundles along with a literal cart full of exclusives (hell, some of them are still in the cases, not even individually bought), I wanna knock over the cart and take one. Why? Because they keep guys like me who wait in the god-awful line from getting one.

    Yes, I'm raging.

    I agree with most here. I am guessing $79.99 :D  I know its not a good comparison, but I am basing it somewhat on last years Ultimate OP which was also $80 and had excellent packaging. Seems like a good price point to me, but I wouldn't be surprised if it went for as much as $100.

    True that, but they're hard to find in this section of the world.
