    Because you can only order it from a magazine company which forces you to buy a large book to get the order form.

    Its like $30 for the book, then you have to pay like $45 for the figure. Throw in domestic shipping within Japan (since they do not ship internationally) AND international shipping from your vendor to your door (or their warehouse) and you get a three digit price tag.

    If you lived in Japan it would be about 30% cheaper.

    Or, if you believe Transbot, all retailers are dirty bloodsucking whores who inflate prices to fuel their narcotic hobby and owe it to use to take a loss and give us toys at a discount, not pay employees, rent, overhead, or make any profits. In fact, businesses that do not cater to fans and offer them products at prices friendly to them should not exist at all. We are all owed transformers.

    That thing really shines. I may have to stay away from looking at reviews of it till I can find it a little cheaper/on sale, cause this thing is gonna be tough to pass on.

    From one of the other Stepper threads:

    Unless you have some out-of-country connection, it's gonna cost you. This figure is especially problematic because to get it directly, you'd need to buy a book and mail in for this.

    US retailers' prices are not actually terrible for this, when you consider you'd have to buy the book, ~$37; the figure, ~$59; and likely a 15% commissioning fee, ~$9. Total that's $105, plus approximately $20 for airmail shipping, for a total of ~$125. It's worth mentioning I was quoted 2 figures for ~$110.

    Unless you really want the book, you'll probably save a lot of trouble by ordering domestically, unless you can find it at one of the usual online overseas retailers for cheaper.

    ^Well, for the obvious reasons stated above. :p 
    But yeah, expect most if not all of these Japanese exclusives [made by Publishing and or 'art-house' convinience stores to even independent toy companies] to charge a premium for their 'collectables'. :( 

    ^God dammit, that's GORGEOUS. :drool:

    It is beautiful indeed. Hopefully Hasbro will release this guy over here as well. I had the preordered him but thought better of it.
