Predaking 2010 Reissue--Rereleased. And DAT PRICE!

Heads up from TFormers: [Links are hidden for guests. Please Register.]

BBTS Listing: Predaking 2010 Reissue Box Set - Transformers 2010 - 2013 Transformers Import Figures

The first release is still available at retail here in Hong Kong at (or close to) the original SRP (around 120 USD). Heck, it's even available on eBay for under 200 (2010 predaking in Toys & Hobbies | eBay). What makes HasTak/BBTS think that this is going to sell at this price?

Usually "DAT WHATEVER" is used as a postive turn of phrase. I expected some low low price worthy of puffing out my upper lip.

Maybe some parts are covered with gold...

Why Predaking costs so much more than Devastator or (coff coff) Piranacon?

He's US$100,00 "bigger" than Devastator?

This is a lot of money... If we got Aerialbots or Protectobots released I hope for much better price.

It will probably sell at that price because there's fans\customers who blindly preorder something and "just save money from the POL" that they ship six months later.

As to why he's more expensive...he is bigger than the other gestalts and uses more diecast and has glossy paint applications. Mind you, original retail for the set was around 15.000 yen versus the 10-11.000 yen of the Devastator\Bruticus encore.
SOC, Yamato, Hot Toys, FE and more for sale!

Yes, the retail price differences are very much justified in my opinion.
