    I'm in for it. Just PoL it and the shipping is minimal, plus you know if something's wrong with it, BBTS will take care of you

    Are you fucking kidding me?

    I will hold on to hope that TFSource or AutomatonToys will have it for $90.

    97.99 is a joke but BBTS has been known to sell for the most of the three I've mentioned.

    IF the community can band together hand hold off a few days on preorders I garuntee you will see a drop in price.

    This happened with that new Nightbird figure, it was posted at $120 and after the fan rage it was dropped to $90. I doubt there will be that big a drop but there will be a drop.

    I take it RK is a solid site? That's where I pre-ordered mine from.

    Yes. I've ordered from them a few times and have never had a problem.

    They also offer the most to save. I'd rather pay the $8 extra here, and pay an additional $4 total shipped in my PoL than repeatedly get smacked with a $9 shipping charge from one of hte other ones. Though if the order stacking works like they promise, I might change it to TFSource dependent on price. It can be put in as a placeholder order too, calm down dude, no reason to get upset about it so quickly.

    Nightbird's a different figure totally. There were already 3rd party incarnations that were just fine, and it's a rehash of a character that wasn't that popular to begin with

    Devy is big time, and everyone knows it, it might be a steal at whatever price it is now compared to 6 months down the road. Time will tell.

    BBTS could charge twice what they are for this figure and it would still sell.

    I'll probably just pre-order the rest from BBTS if I like Exgraver.

    BBTS is definitely worth the extra cost. If I had the $$$ to buy Hercules. (I wish I did...congrats to the fans who can afford not-devy.) I would definitely go with BBTS just for the peace of mind.

    Their customer service is SECOND TO NONE. And if there is anything.....and I mean anything wrong with your order, they will take care of you.

    And no I'm not affiliated with BBTS in any way, shape, or form.

    Yeah, I think this hits one of those key pricing thresholds. If you were going to pay $80 per two months to get the promised Devastator, you'd pay $100. And a good chunk of you paying $100, would pay up to $200. I don't think you're going to be able to rally the fandom and play any games with this release. The price started high (for me) and it's only going to go up.

    Especially since if you have one, you'll want the others. And if you have two, you'll NEED the others. Everyone's going to be scrambling and scalping and out-bidding to get the final Devastator.

    Good luck friends, I just plain can't do it.

    Robotkingdom is pretty great, really fast shipping quality service and their prices WITH quick shipping is still usually 10-15$ less than say BBTS or TFsource..but, they also happen to be sold out on preorder, so..BBTS it is.

    PILE OF LOOT. That there is something I never used but yes I can see it saving a ton of money.

    I look forward to seeing the drama of Hercules withing the TF community in the following 6 months.

    And as a user mentioned..If you think $100 is high wait until after they are only available on the seconday market...I parish the thought.

    Not all 3rd party stuff gets rare and skyrockets in price though...

    Also I feel like BBTS charges more for shipping and more for their products overall; so you *may* be better suited to search for a better price.

    I think we should tell BBTS how displeased we are with the price. If enough of us show them how upset we are with the markup, they might actually drop the price a few dollars.
