    The Generations figures are no longer Asian exclusives.

    I'd definitely buy that Springer if he were on the shelf at my local toy store with a normal deluxe price tag.

    The packaging is a Variant Packaging. The USA versions have Chinese Writing on them and are packed in Vehicle mode. I will buy both and open the USA versions when they drop later this year.

    Because you have even the slightest clue what toy arena paid for these right?

    How DARE a business try to make any money. I wonder how you would feel knowing what big box retailers pay for toys... Talk about "scalping"

    :gen069: 

    Some people enjoy being able to get their stuff earlier than most, and are willing to pay extra for it. Welcome to the wide a varied world of tf collecting.

    Have you looked at any of the financial statements of the big box retailers?

    I have and I can tell you their margins are lower than you're implying. They run a low margin-high volume business.

    The packaging variant is exclusive. We get some FUGLY packaging with Asian Characters for no good reason!

    Shit is so funny. For the "priviledge" of owning these a tad earlier, you get to spend twice what I'm gonna pay when I go into TRU in a couple months and get those Generations figs. How people can support this kind of thing is beyond me, site sponsor or not.

    If TRU carried everything they were suppossed to, we would all have MP Grimlock at the $60 asking price...Not the $150-$200 that they sell for now. You can never count on TRU to stock anything (except Bumblebees). Get them where and when you can and avoid the even higher mark-up later. Good luck to all of us with MP Thundercracker and Prime.
