    Thanks

    Thanks. 40 bucks is more justifiable. I'm one that thinks MPs cost more than they should in most cases. Despite the negatives on this toy, from what I see, he'll display nice for a KO price. I was going to wait for the KO (which I've done for a handful and they are great for the price-surprised a lot by them. I know, no bashing please. Personal choice. My excuse, I'm buying 2 of everything else like CW stuff). But for 40 bucks instead of the 60-70 buck price tags (vs 30-35 for KOs). I can justify getting Originals. Thanks for the tip.

    You realize you can get any MP car for ~$40 by pre-ordering from Japan, right?

    Contacted Jet about a price adjustment, since the $25 off coupon code would've saved me about five more dollars. They didn't refund me, but they gave me a $5 credit on my account towards my next purchase. That was pretty nice of them.

    Yeah, but that's if you can catch them before the preorders sell out, and order months in advance. Waiting for a deal like this (or buying the KO as the previous member mentioned) allows for more instant gratification.

    How do you guys work around the jet.com first time only coupon? I created a new account with a new email. It shows the discount in my cart, but when I go to check out, it is back to full price.

    Yeah, I was able to double-dip on the discount with two emails and two different credit cards. I guess if I really wanted to I could have my wife order something but at the moment there's nothing they have that I want.

    The reason I can't is because I only have 2 CC's that I've used up already, I think their system is able to tell that you're not a new customer is by the card you pay. Pretty cool way to prevent scalping.

    I use anime-export's stack feature, got 3 mp cars shipped for 18.00.... Just in case it wasn't known that they have a stack feature.

    I mean, yes and no. HLJ doesn't require money up front and usually has stock after pre-orders fill too.

    So you CAN preorder pretty much whenever. Mandarake is also a good place to check after the fact. Tracks is up there now for 5000Y.

    The prob with stacking MPs, however, is that you have to wait MONTHS before they're all in. Kind of a pain, imo.

    Another cheap option for MPs: Amazon marketplace. For example, MP 21G (golden BB!) is now $44 shipped: Amazon.com: Transformers Masterpiece MP-21G Bumble G2Ver.: Toys & Games
    However, most MPs on Amazon are sold at higher prices, so not very reliable.

    Jet and coupons = easy (no preorder hassle or waiting for months on a stack) - plus, as mentioned by jru42287's post above, Jet's really eager to prove itself and offer excellent customer support (you can't say the same about overseas sellers).

    Devastation is down to $33 for the Steam sale. DLC is about $3.

    That BB mold seems so pricey considering how small it is...

    That's not true on Tracks, he's still available at HLJ and even with the cheapest shipping option he's about $57 with today's exchange rate. Anime Export was a little cheaper in price, but not by much. Days of $40 MPs is pretty much over except if they did another MP-21 repaint as a mass release.

    YEah, but $40ish is the cheapest he can be found at, to my knowledge, and it's in line with MP-pricing (i.e. super-inflated). But some will argue that the MP line is a specialty line that warrants higher prices, IN SPITE of the actual toy you get (or its diminutive size, as in this case).
    The high prices, imo, keeps these toys from the mainstream, which in turn creates a NEED for high prices! :lol  But all that economic philosophy aside, I'll add that I cherry pick which MPs I buy because typical prices are in the $60-80 range, and it's usually for a repaint of a repaint! :lol 

    Yeeeeeep. :cool:  I'd love a red BB, but $65 and no bonus accessories is pure THEFT. :lol  Exodus and I both say it's a tiny toy. :)

    I placed my order for MP Tracks yesterday morning with Jet, using the 20NOW code. Received it already in today's mail.

    Haha oh yeah, unfortunately the completionist in me did pre order the red BB arg :(  Although still on the fence on cancelling it though and just wait to see if it'll go on sale down the road.

    BEWARE: the 25 off 50 Jet code is dead. It LOOKS like it's working, then falls out of your basket at the final screen. Very tricky.

    Happened twice to me, I confirmed what was happening at Slickdeals. Almost ordered without the discount because of this.
