Original pre-order price for MP12?

Hey gang! So I'm curious to know, what was the original price at bbts before their mark-up?? I had pre-orderd Sideswipe, Red Alert and Soundwave before their mark ups, but I'm being charged the full pre-order price. Wasn't it closer to $60 or $70??

Shit, just noticed that! Glad I put my pre-order in early. I went with TFscource at $169 with free shipping which saved me a couple bucks over BBTS shipped price. Now they are out of stock on their pre-orders completely. I have a feeling this will be a very expensive figure in a year.

Sideswipe and Red Alert I thought was a little cheaper when the initial pre-order went up. I know for a fact Soundwave was $139 or $149 initially. I ordered all three on the first day and the prices got adjusted. $83.99 for the cars and $159 for Soundwave.

BBTS preorder price was originally like $90 and then they dropped it a little to $84. It was never lower than that, I preordered like the first day they went up.

Thanks go out to SmokescreenGT for this awesome sig!

I pre-ordered MP-13 back in mid-June for $169.99. Never saw it for less than that. And I have a copy of the confirmation email from BBTS.

Sorry, but I too ordered MP:SW when the pre-order first showed up on May 30th he was listed at $159.99 before the price hike to $199.99. and I still have him on my preorder list for $159.99.

He was never listed lower. you must be talking about another online store.

I ordered everything the day they put preorders up. According to my email confirmations BBTS started out Sideswipe and Red Alert at $94.99 and Soundwave at $159.99 on May 28. Later that same day they dropped Sideswipe and Red Alert to $89.99 and Soundwave to $149.99. The following day (May 29) they dropped Sideswipe and Red Alert again to $83.99 and Soundwave to $139.99. 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.
