    Better than ebay, sure, but I'd hardly call it a decent price at all. BBTS ran the Autobot-only three pack for $120. Had it preordered, AND PAID FOR, but their "records indicated there was no payment" so they cancelled my preorder. The set came & went, and when I finally had the mind to check in on it I found out the deal, the mistake on their part. They refunded me my cash and gave me a bonus store credit with them, since the set was sold out at that point (and still is). Temptingtoys has the Junkion listed for $80 shipped. That's unacceptable. That's saying that taking a Wreck-Gar figure with a dif head, seperating him from a translucent blue Rodimus (which, I'm sorry, kicks ass) and a specialized bluer take on Kup (also kickassedtry going on there), acknowledging it's not an on-the-shelf-at-retail figure, and selling it by itself warrants the already exclusive being roughly two-thirds of the amount it would have been sold for in the exclusive set, thereby saying Rodimus & Kup are worth maaaaaaybe a HALF of what the Junkion is worth. That's unadulterated greed and BS. Decent price my ass.

    I post little wants like this on this particular board since I've had such incredibly cool experiences with fellow TF Fans and boardmembers in any given transaction. I've always viewed these types of forums in a TF board as a place where fans help fans. Sure, there's the want of some income on the part of the seller, but the love of the hobby usually keeps that gain on a sane level, beating out places like auction sites and such. Buying that figure off of Temptingtoys for that much is simply outrageous. And while I do appreciate the direction you've given, at the same time I have to say I'm sorry to hear you had to pay so much. A third-party Fansproject figure made from scratch I could see paying that price for, Junkion - not so much.
