    Why? You'd be paying roughly the same.
    EE has free shipping for orders over $75, so there wouldn't be much difference if you went with ebay or EE.

    Sales tax. Based on their customer service number, it looks like they're in California.

    Who are some reliable eBay sellers that have Liokaiser? Wouldn't mind jumping on one now for a known price than hang around until EE decides $120 looks better than $110.

    *Reminded of how much G2 Superion, Menasor & Victorian clearances on Amazon*

    Wanna take a gamble & see if he joins them eventually? :p :p :p

    Actually I think you dont get the box at all, just the figures loose.
    The box is half the fun! Worth the extra ten to me.

    Yeah, to me a giftset box is about $20 - $30. I'd bite if it drops down to $69 or $79 loose.

    It's interesting that there are multiple sellers of these from the same place, some charge shipping and some don't and then they either don't charge shipping for some items and they do for other items.

    I am willing to take that bet, especially since he is a retail exclusive figure that WONT be sold through amazon. I am ready to bet whatever you want that he will never join them on amazon :p

    I actually forgot about Liokaiser. EE solicited them over e-mail at the very end of July and they're apparently still on double secret probation. Anyway the price on them is really high, especially in light of the other sets going into deep discount clearance sales. Now watch the stupid thing go into full blown Computron hysteria...

    Yeah EE tends to keep them at a certain price for a while before I think a whole year or 2 in putting them at a sale price. Using the GOTG box set that they specifically had as an example.

    Maybe I should've worded myself better.

    What I literally meant was, maybe he would join them ultimately in clearance. Not on Amazon obviously.

    As somebody who really wanted Hasbro to try selling giftsets again, I can only cringe when I see people hoping for them to sell poorly enough to go on clearance.

    I may be dense, but where are we seeing this EE price change? Has it even been released by them?

    An EE employee by the name of Adam is the source of the price change.
    He even made posts here in one the Liokaiser threads about it.

    Someone mentioned in the Liokaiser Gallery thread that they were able to preorder Liokaiser from EE by speaking to a customer rep on the phone. The price they were given was $129.99
