    Just wondering why, it seems MP Bumble is around 40-60% more expensive than the Battle OPs/Costco Exclusive Bees.

    :confused:

    Avaliability + MP name label + higher quality paintjob = more $$$

    You can get a regular BattleOps at any given store, the CostCo exclusive is probably abundant in Costco stores, but the MP release? Simply being called a Masterpiece is enough to demand high prices...from the collector market.

    For one thing, the import costs tend to jack up the price. There are also improvements to the figure, hence it being in the Masterpiece line.

    Thanks for the replies guys. :) 

    I wanted to get it from the store where I got my TF United Bees, but I did not have enough cash with me that time, hehe. Hope I can get it soon. :)
