    The seekers are $75 at Target, so my guess is this set will be in the same ballpark.

    Also, FYI, this will be a Target exclusive and releases in August

    Judging by comparing price differences from overseas stores (not online stores, but actual retailers in singapore) this set should be more than the seekers, but not as high as its currently going for online. I'd guess $99, but we'll know soon enough.

    Good point. The set does seem to come with a bit more than the seekers. $99 sounds like a reasonable assumption.

    As great as this is, I wish we could have gotten them separately so we could get rewind. Without him I don't know if I can say this is worth $100.

    Rewind wasn't included in the SDCC 2010 release either.

    Doesn't change the fact that some countries already received this set. The Seekers and Trypticon as well. Isn't it screwed up if the toy is released before the official images?

    They just released the Coneheads and they released Trypticon as well, are they good enough for you? Plus there's the Hasbro Australia rumor of a Dinobot 5 pack.

    I know that but SDCC is a US event and the presentation was by Hasbro US, not Hasbro Asia. This set was not released in their region yet.

    Just because you have them doesn't mean that everyone does.
