    Erg, that is what they said last week. I am pretty sure BBTS and other online retailers have already shipped their orders out. Still, as long as I get them, and in good, unmodded condition, I can wait a couple extra weeks.

    I will have my Soundwave and Starscream on Monday but have to wait till december to get my prime. Which one would be better to pick up Encore Megatron or MP Megatron?

    Well, I skipped MP Megs because of it's reported fragility in addition to inability for returning him after the overall cost. I am getting Encore Megatron because, just as a collector, I think it looks great as an unopen display piece.

    That's what I thought.

    Then I searched eBay for completed auctions, found 3, and took the average price and it came out to $159. Although the 3 prices were $175, $191, and $113. Every one of those prices is ridiculous, and the range is crazy too. eBay is so unreliable for a steady price.

    Indeed, this is exactly what we were told last week, if there was a delay or something they could at least acknowledge it instead of just reposting the exact same thing a week later.

    $154 for the OPENED box. It's $194 (another label said $199) for the MISB version.

    Ouch. I was interested, but no longer.

    I never thought the Insecticons would be so high-priced aftermarket. Must be those extra Energon Cubes included. :lol

    Thank god I got my MISB insecticons for $50 on ebay.

    As for why they cost so much. Well, they're cool figures, and they're a set that aren't combiners or share the same mold but still have the same colorscheme that's very "standard issue" black and purple.

    But at the $154 they're asking for the open box version, I've seen the vintage go for less on ebay.

    If the Insecticons are going for that much, are the E-hobby versions even more?

    Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. That seems a bit too much, imo.
