    As the title says, anyone knows where I can get a good price for the upcoming Takara-Tomy Encore Reissues? I know in China they're around $30 for each, but seller won't accept paypal.

    I've posted requests for Titanium/exclusive Astrotrain/..... before, got a lot help from many nice members here. Thank you all! Hope I can get some luck this time too!

    Sorry, but you won't find anyone selling them for around $30 in the US. Your best bet is TFSource or BBTS.

    Thanks, if I can't find any place cheaper I'll probably go TFSource or ebay, $175 for all 4. I'm not looking for $30 each, that's almost impossible here at US. :(

    BBTS is always a bit pricey but they pack their toys very well and most everything I've ordered from them is in excellent condition.

    I highly doubt you'll get all of them for $30 each, even on ebay. US retailers are charging in the $40-50 range so for a while they're going to sell for that. Action HQ actually has Starscream for $29.95 but the others three figures are closer to $50. Overseas you might find that price but they'll kill you on shipping.

    Best of luck to you.

    Try Fantofan.jp

    I don't know if he is still has them at the same price, but I got all 4 for around $120. Even with the cost of shipping from Japan it is still cheaper than any of the US importers.

    Will the Encore figures be coming to actual retail? Like TRU and Wal-Mart and what not?

    Nope...stricktly a Takara thing. Hasbro isn't really into the collector lines. They throw us a bone here and there, but that's it.

    You could try HobbyLink Japan, www.hlj.com, I've gotten a ton of my imports from there for very reasonable prices
