    Lets just say this: between all of the first wave of POTP (minus the deluxes & leader), the Marvel Legends Vintage wave (minus Punisher), a few Star Wars Black Series figs, a NECA Chucky, and a crap ton of Funko Pops (Rick & Morty, Wonder Woman, Sub-Zero, Hey Arnold, Pennywise, Thundercats)... Hey its like a second Christmas :lol  And there is still a few more things on preorder due this month.

    Holy crap their prices SUCK for the PotP stuff. They're usually kind of decent with their pricing, but man, these are pretty much unacceptable.
    Leaders for $65? Voyagers for $35?
    Yeah, no thanks.

    To be fair the prices for the Leaders are for Takara Tomy versions and not Hasbro's. But there is no way I would consider paying $35 for a voyager.

    I got suckered into their POTP pricing just to avoid having to go to stores, especially this time of year. Maybe I'm just a sucker but I can eat that extra $10 on Starscream to save myself the time and gas, and since their shipping is so cheap I'm willing to be part of the problem.

    That said, this was my first-ever Pile of Loot and I'm happy everything finally showed up! Starscream screwed everyone over, as always.

    They're only hard to find because they are just now coming out.
    Sheesh, first wave stuff will be around for a while once it hits in full force. Heck, the Legends they're charging $15 for are everywhere at Walmarts in the holiday stocking stuffer displays for $10.
    BBTS charges what they do because they know they can get away with it.

    I paid $63 for the pair at TRU. $65 for the pair at BBTS is hardly highway robbery.

    Yeah, everybody's running around like chickens with their heads cut off trying to get these POTP figures. I can appreciate wanting to get these figures as soon as possible...to a point. I don't get paying a premium, for Wave 1 of all things. I wonder if BBTS gets away with their pricing because a lot of their sales might come from casual fans who just want a Grimlock and a Starscream in their collection, or late-to-the-party buyers who might bite on that Voyager 2-fer a year from now when they're gone from brick-and-mortar stores. I know I've overpaid a bit on a figure from BBTS just because it's a year or two old and I can't find it anywhere else.

    On topic, I see that MP-10B is in stock at TCP. I wonder when BBTS will get their stock in?

    35 for a voyage doesn't really bother me. They're 30 in the store and it costs more than 5 in gas for me to drive there, so it's kind if a win win.

    Grabbed a Legends Blurr. That frees up the Hasbro one for some customizing. Also grabbed some KFC hands for a rather ambitious custom - I'm going to attempt to give a CW Silverbolt a hand transplant.
