    Yesterday I made my best purchase yet, which was AM Breakdown. But I'm curious about the price. I don't go to every TF website to see prices, so I wouldn't know.

    I paid 49.99 plus 17.99 shipping. Is that the best deal you can get for him? I'm not to sure.

    EDIT: Price bumped up to 52.99.

    Sounds like a good deal to me, esp since BBTS and TFSource had them for $60 before shipping.

    Where did you get yours?

    eBay.

    News really hit hard that Breakdown ain't coming. Yesterday, the guy had 8 for 49.99, and now there's 3 left with a 52.99 price tag. I got real luck there...

    After I read there wouldn't be a US release I went to eBay to check that auction and, surprise, it was gone. Toy Arena's would be about $69 after shipping so you saved a couple of bucks there.

    Average deal. He's pretty much $60-$70 shipped everywhere you look.

    I read "AM Breakdown" and thought you were talking about Action Master Breakdown, the 2004 Botcon exclusive. These line abbreviations need to stay unique for the :dunce  among us, dangit!

    $30-35 for mine because I'm living in Asia. Darn, many TF: Prime fans are paying crazy prices because of a lack of foresight from Hasbro.

    They should have planned to actually produce the main characters. While there's going to be a Cyrus (spelling?) version eventually, most fans would still want a character in his original version.
