    Anybody you buy it from, if its not the same price they got it for + shipping, you are paying scalper prices. Thats the def of scalping. Buying or hoarding multiple "hot" items and jacking the price up. How much were they at the event?

    I guess, if your driving down the street. Bodhar had to take the day off from work (Lost money), catch a train to some place far away from where he lived, pay some friends to go along and help him snatch up Convoys, spend the night, come home.

    His price is extremely reasonable when you consider all that.

    yeah see for folks that can understand the effort and time that goes into people grabbing these items it makes sense....

    But for alot of the folks on this board...it goes like this"

    What?! you want me to pay $10 above the retail price?? Your a freaking scalper!!"

    for them it is all about me and me getting mine...to hell with the person spending time and effort and grief to goto a place and pick up something that is limited to an event or convention...

    yeah, I don't mind if i'm driving down the street to walmart/Target/etc, i'll sell you the item at cost plus shipping. Your just asking to much of people to go that far out of their way for nothing.

    Indeed... Yahoo Japan auctions are now ending at a measly 5000 yen. Thank g-d I was able to cancel it from the ebay auction for $250. The $140 from Bodharr is still fair, but you can probably get cheaper.

    ^ Was able to score some pieces for the boys & myself at nicer than nice pricing. :rock 

    Heard that these were going for about USD $80 in Hong Kong.

    :lol 

    Wasn't that bad when these were limited to 300 but when you're talking like over 1,600 pieces then its a different story.

    You can't produce too much of those exclusives else price goes southwards.

    Seems that both TFA Elite Guard Prowl & Dreadwing/Smokescreen had lower production numbers as compared to TFA Black Convoy.

    Production number for Black Convoy's easily 2X of those pieces. :p
