    Hopefully $65 is what they charge in store at Wal*Mart too.

    holy $80 is not cheap. I can just imagine the extreme high prices in Canada.
    Although with all Ultimate-sized toys, they may not do too well in the market and in the end end up shelf warming for cheaper later. Just look at Unicron, ROTF Devastator.

    I'd vote in favor of that. Maybe more non-sponsored reviewers would get news credits for their contributions instead of seeing their threads deleted so that other reviewers can claim firsties.

    Party pooper! I got one from amazon.com for the outrageous amount of $129 after shipping and customs and I don't care! After all, initial retail price in Canada will be $99.99 plus 12.5% taxes, so...

    It's just been a few more sightings in the Northwest part of Chicago and the outlying suburbs as far as I know. I found mine doing a Kmart site to store shipping search. It has a unique sku and price than all other figures. I called first cause I had the bad experience with HA Mudflap and the WFC Soundwave previously. When I called the guy assured me that he was looking right at it and even read the bio over the phone. I got the $5 off cause the website has it listed $5 cheaper than the shelf price. All I can really say is Kmart got it right for a change.

    I got mine from Walmart.com this weekend and he was so worth the $65. He looks better in person in my opinion then the actual photos. His trailer wings dont look as ridiculous.
