And then finally on June 13 they raised the price on Soundwave to $169.99 for new preorders and $159.99 for those of use who already had an order in. If they changed the price any additional times after that it never affected existing orders.
This is dead on. That is exactly my recollection as well.

So the lowest anyone can get a Soundwave via BBTS is $159.99 (assuming they had it on PO before June 13th). And for those that had it on PO at $139.99, your price was bumped up to $159.99. Am I reading this correctly?

here's my preorder list at where SW is right now. I guess I'm one of the lucky ones.

It's only a difference of $10. I don't feel bad then. But I think I would've been a little miffed at the idea of some motherfuckers getting MP-13 for $139.99 while others had to shell out $169.99 .

Yea, it was a customer appreciation price on Soundwave at just under $140, then they shot out an email a bit later stating that they had to up it to just under $160. Not sure if it is the case with this (think they just wanted to get the preorder up early on it), but I fear that the declining exchange rate of the US dollar when compared to other currencies is going to cause havoc on their end in the future.


Wants: Botcon Grimlock, Dreadwing, Henkei Sunstreaker, G1 Mirage rear tire.
