    people payed 150 for 2-3 minicons in the past, so 150 for a lot of Minicons is suddenly not that expensive ;)

    Dude minicons are collectables, people get the harder to find more expensive ones for that reason not practicle reasons. If you want them go for it, I just just recently bought the Lucky Draw Blue Magnus for $500, 98% of the reason I bought it was for the minicon.
    To each is own.

    Come to think about it, I just bought the Unreleased Arm. Hotshot in the G1 Smokescreen deco for $200, just for the minicon.

    If you already have a nice Minicon collection going on or just a Minicon completionist then Id go for it. Get em all now while you can and just treat the extra cash you did'nt want to spend as a no-hassle fee. So you don't have to waste time & money tracking them all down later on seperately with their own individual shipping fees.

    For just some regular Minicons its crazy, but for those it's not bad, especially all in one batch.
    Honestly, that's way too much for some Minicons but being a TF collector or completionist aint cheap and we gotta do what we have to sometimes hah

    I think 150$ after shipping would be a great price, I paid that for the 2 complete MB alone w/o shipping. But something I learned with microns is: never buy uncomplete teams or sets, never. I made a big mistake buying the reace team from MB0 alone and now I have an useless double that nobody wants. And... even if there are no changes, it's not my primary concern with microns :-D
