    Thanks for the note. Canceled my TC pre-order with BBTS and ordered from TTs, saves a few $.

    I figured there would be a price difference, but why are the henkei seekers so drastically more expencive? I want thundercracker, but that is too much.

    OK thanks. and I know that the games of deception one is more expensive, but but just because the other one is less doesn't mean it's not pricey.

    I'm hoping that Thundercracker gets released under the Universe line at some point instead of being some fucking overpriced exclusive. As nice as he looks, that's too much for that mold. Better off getting an Acid Storm and painting him.

    thank you. some one understands. I wouldn't hold your breath on the repaint in the universe line. they would have done it by now, and hasbro knows better than to piss of the fans who bought that ridiculously price set. I'm not gonna lie I still want the set, but common sense is preventing me from spending two car notes for it.

    Hmm... not really liking how each figure has an additional $6 in shipping charges automatically attached to the price. It won't be much cheaper to order from them afterall, so I'm sticking with my BBTS preorder.

    huh? Which "American" version? The botcon which goes for $150+?


    Limited edition to a specific Japanese retailer

    Its still cheaper. Not that I dont like BBTS, but BBTS is $75 + ship.

    Here its $60 + 6 ship. $66 total.

    Dude to get these , in Japan, costs $35-$40. So now add some profit margin and the shipping to the dealer.

    Well the Japanese retail on these ultra's are $45.
