    Got mine for $65 from ShowZ. $120 is absurd for a (likely) smaller figure with fewer accessories. I know he's got diecast, but that's not enough of a plus (or a plus at all imho) To justify the price.

    Gonna wait for the Nemesis version before taking a leap. Or possibly the Eva version assuming they would do one.

    I think MS V2 Optimus will be cheaper but still around $100 USD on sites outside of China.

    damn, so this is still gonna be roughly $85-95 from sites not marking up with a huge surcharge. :eek:  for that price i'd be better off picking up MP figures like the MP44 KO that's on sale on ShowZ for $90. :p 

    here's hoping MS doesn't follow suite and start inflating their price for their v2 OP. :(

    You were talking about white Prime and Magnus armor? White Prime was €28 on Ali and Magnus armor $44,99 ShowZ.
    I was talking about Prime v1 latest reissue.

    I mean, if that's what you want. I know you're being a bit facetious, but I do find it odd when people will buy a product with a complete different intent and purpose just because it's cheaper.

    I should've been more specific. I was responding to the price of Newage's white Prime and trailer.

    i want to stay within legends both for space and budget constraints. but i still eye MP figs just out of interested, and if NA figures are going to keep creeping up to MP territory, then that's when i have to rethink my purchases and start drawing a line for myself.

    i have two MS primes (v1 and metallic) that i'm perfectly happy with, so picking up NA prime for about roughly the amount of getting both of those is absurd to me, especially when i find flaws in it that i don't feel i can overlook and be completely happy with. to be honest i'm currently more in tune with picking up MS V2 if it's not insanely marked up in the same fashion NA has gone with this. the majority of my collection is NA and i even went back and collecting at least one of all their prior molds, so i'll be really disappointed if this is the jump the shark point for me with not getting NA prime and possibly NA devy. :(

    I’m sure a 3rd party could make a little flap piece like that pic

    My freaking WeiJiang Fire Scorpion wasn't this expensive, and that figure is HUGE.

    The £ has been doing alright lately, so £55 (after preorder discount Showz) for Op doesn't seem out of line with their latest premium releases like Galvatron and Shockwave.. by that, I mean the ones where they've been given a topcoat lacquer and have diecast parts.. and Op comes with trailer etc, so again, not cheap but also seemingly standard NA pricing, I feel. MS is always cheaper, but the materials never look as good, and quite honestly their sluggish and haphazard release schedule just makes me annoyed. NA shows us stuff then slams it out, that's worth a small surcharge alone to just have the stuff as announced. MS Prowl and their Devy was first shown and last out. Bah.
