    Trying to decide if the effort to sell the rest of it would be worth it for Nautica. Anybody interested in splitting a set?

    I don't know if the set was being sold through Amazon at the time of the OP's post, but now the only listings for it are two third-party sellers with a $300 price tag for each.

    Btw, I'm probably selling my unopened set. Not sure for how much though. Definitely not $300. Maybe a Sovereign trade...

    Hardly the first time an exclusive was (much!) later made available through other retailers.

    Yep it was deff through amazon, I bought one. :D 

    On the bright side... this might mean it could pop up through other retailers like the CW sets... or maybe they pulled the listing due to technical reasons.

    That's definitely an official listing, it contains stock photos of Quickswitch's beast mode and both Quickswitch and Laser Prime's jet modes which were never on TRU's website. Huh.

    Dang, I missed this again! Why is this set so hard to find? Guess I gotta bookmark that page and keep refreshing...

    I imagine the kind of person who puts something like this on Amazon for $299 just fishing for a sucker is the kind of person who would be unbearable to be around in real life.

    Supply and demand. This really is no different than a sold out Botcon or SDCC exclusive. Do you expect to buy one of those for original retail?

    The difference being that neither of the sets that have been released were billed as a limited run item, so there was no indication that they might be difficult to obtain, whereas that sort of thing is clearly indicated with convention exclusives and therefore to be expected.
