    Not sure if this has been reported yet but please close if it has.

    Today I spotted TRU exclusive MP-11 Thundercracker at HK Festival Walk Mall for $699.90 HKD ~ $90ish USD.

    You'll see stacks of figures like that in a giant pile of awesome in Japan/Asia. In the US, you'll be lucky to see 2 or more of the same figure (except if it's Bee) on the same peg/shelf. XD

    Conversely, aren't Hercules and 3rd party Transformers much cheaper over there?

    If so, I'll be happy to do some trading :)
