    But I'd like to know if anyone deals with "robotkingdom"

    There it's $49.90 and in stock.

    And at BBTS (where I usually shop) it's on preorder for $69.99.

    So it's obvious that RK would be the wise choice but I've never dealt with them before.

    So any info on them would be appreciated.

    Don't be afraid to order from RK. They are a major online retailer and one of the more popular sites to buy toys from. I've ordered from them 3 times now and have actually decided to almost exclusively buy from them because of their great prices.

    Check their site. It's more expensive due to their location.

    They are pretty good...I have gone with them many times but their shipping is going to close that discount a little bit between them and BBTS. You can go to RK and get through your order before finalizing to see what the shipping is and then decide if BBTS is still better or not.

    I just got PE-01FR too. They are pretty neat figures!

    Same as above, cheaper but shipping can be more.

    Shipping is more, but the total is usually below or close to the price BEFORE shipping on other sites.
    I've shopped there many many many times, never had a problem :)

    Yeah; with RobotKingdom, as a Canadian I find it cheaper to shop there than BBTS. I don't think I've ever been dinged on customs, either.

    if you live in the states the shipping will reduce your "savings" but for peeps like myself who live in australia shipping from Hong Kong is cheaper than America(bbts) so robot kingdom is my go to place for TF's onlline..... i got TFC Hercules for less than $480 through robot kingdom.

    I'd wait to see what Fantoys puts out, they have a frenzy/ravage/rumble combo coming out this summer.

    I ordered all 6 HERC bots from them. All together it was only 542 shipped. 45 was shipping which I didnt think was bad at all.

    Thanks guys!

    It just dawned on me that other than that Funpub set (which we still don't have physically) I haven't purchased anything this year. So I figured why not these figures...

    But now I'm back on the fence with the news that another set is pending.

    ....decisions, decisions. LOL!

    I was gonna stump up for these guys too and when I was about to pull the trigger heard about the MP Frumble and am now waiting, should be due some pics soon and if they look anyway near as awesome as Laserbeak then it's the arduous wait till summer.

    If they were cheaper I probably would have got them anyway but for their tiny size I think they overpriced the only thing in their favour is there aren't many options for a G1 set.

    Is the pending set intended for the impending not mp soundwave?

    I just moved over to RK and will most likely make them my exclusive online retailer. Their prices are cheaper and even with the higher shipping costs you will end up paying less.

    Shouldn't that info be in the not-MP Soundwave thread? lol

    Any word on when pics will be available? I am eager to see if anyone can work the Ravage magic on Frenzy and Rumble. (as in 3Ding them up)
