    Quoting this to laugh that now you can probably get a BotCon Thundercracker for $30s and still someone complains.

    Who's complaining? I was merely curious. Don't be so presumptious.

    Unless my memory is faulty, most TF exclusives in Japan cost roughly the same amount as regular versions. I believe my Black Rodimus cost the same as the regular Rodimus, though you had to mail things in.

    I don't think that's ever been the case, e-hobby stuff was always a few bucks more, probably because of the limited production run, changes in box art, etc.

    All over 'Cracker and 'Warp but not diggin the Crystal Prime so much. Besides, I swore I wasn't buying any more repaints or recolors. Hopefully one of the stores will catch on to these - c'mon BBTS and TFSource! I'll gladly pay the higher price for these gems.

    I'm not sure if I would have sold off my set. This set brings me the good memories of Botcon.

    Just wait for the next FP exclusive and the first post is "I won't pay FP for screwing us. I deserve this at retail. I'll wait for the japanese release."

    This situation is a comet which we may not see again in the fandom, this is not a full moon which will be back every 30 days. I would not recommend skipping this regardless of cost if seeker ownership really is that impacting to you being a TF collector.

    wow, that was uncalled for. (theres always someone who has to light a fire in thread)also, there was no way to know TC was being released. This thread is going good with alot of positive perspectives out there, and yes, I, we, alot of people have dropeed some coin on the seekers, we really dont need any reminding and dont appreciate being called names buddy.

    Ebay:
    Unless this is one of those 6000 production unit runs for this particular store exclusive...these will be harder to get and more expensive than BotCon versions.

    After reading some of the comments in this thread, I have to assume that there are a lot of people out there unaccustom to the availability and secondary market worth of Japanese store exclusives.
