    According to the cart, they only have 3 in stock.

    Either they didn't get that many......or a few people ARE actually willing to pay that for it.

    Probably international... but even eBay prices, with international shipping, are still better than that.

    19 in stock at $120. Out of 500 that were exclusive to robotkingdom. I guess the markup's not that bad. I believe the boys were going for more then that on ebay.

    Possibly. Some people just have more money than patience.

    Some also have more money than freetime, or live in areas where it is not going to be released at retail. Doesn't always have to do with being patient.

    True. I understand some pieces paying more than they truly cost, but have a hard time with this one personally

    That was the plan, but I've been sitting on City Commander in my POL (I was amazed at how fast it came in, especially given the insecticon delays), and I just can't hold off any longer!
