    Whoa, BBTS is scumbag again.

    I am glad I bought them years ago. This is just wrong.

    Man, I know the grey is toon accurate, but the purple just looks so much better. Also, $100 extra for grey..wtf? Is that made of actual silver?

    If this is the price for FT staying in business and working on new molds I am all for it. That being said these are half the price of the "going rate" on e-bay so it should be a no brainer for anyone who wants these to purchase them now as they will never be cheaper. The days of FT bots for $80 are long gone due to the current economic situation and the insane after market prices that people are willing to pay. I would rather the money go directly to the company than resellers.

    I dont think its BBTS dude. I think its fanstoys.

    This. Purple looks way more coherent. And is an extra incentive when its cheaper. Assuming i even get them at this batshit price.

    Agreed. I went with purple bc I like the way it looks better. The $100 price difference helped make that decision too tho

    Yeah, I wish I could get the Dibots again, because they were fun.

    But if they're priced anything like theses insecticons...NO.

    I snagged mercenary a few months for a good price but figured the other 2 were a lost cause due to ebay prices. I am extremely happy i can complete the set for half ebay pricing. Slowly learning to just wait on reissues

    No, it is retailers who have a lot from every piece they sold. And BBTS are on my blacklist for several years and they do it again.

    What is the reason for $100 difference? Because they expect more money from toon version.

    Yeah, and I’ll still pay them, unfortunately. $450 is better than $1,300.

    $100 more for a grey chest.

    Bargain of the century, given how expensive grey plastic is these days.

    Are you going to boycott every retailer then? Because all US retailers will charge the same price too or a little bit more.
