    Yeah, I was just searching for Trypticon and, doing that, he doesn't show up on the first page at all - there is metroplex, omega supreme, a bunch of other listings, but not the official Trypticon listing. If I search "trypticon platinum" then he shows up, but he's the last listing. Without this post, I wouldn't have found it to be honest.

    Same, granted I'm in the states and shipped it to my friend, but I actually paid 10 USD less then what they have it for currently.

    I'm hopeful they'll cut the price as one of their sweeping Black Friday / Cyber Monday deals, but yeah, the one I ordered from overseas arrived in perfect condition and also less than the current price (when tax is added in).

    I have my complete G1 sitting right next to me... I was going to get this and sell that since I was going to reprolabel it up. But now it won't be much of a delta in price after ebay fees.

    Unless one of you guys wants its. It's in very good shape and totally complete with working electronics

    There may be a Black Friday deal, but that's yet to be determined. I will say as others have noted, it's gone out of stock at several retailers already (several times) for the $200-225 range.

    Keep in mind this is a little more than your average re-issue in that it has all of the motion electronics, etc. The Predaking re-issue was around $100 at release and didn't have the complexity of Trypticon. I expected a price of around $130-140, but $160 is still reasonable.

    That is FAR from reasonable. Encore Skylynx new cost me $54. Encore Omega Supreme, also new... $85. And both of these guys have their electronics intact.

    Anything over $110 is batshit insane.

    Well that didn't last long. I just hope they were bought by actual customers and not those "Fulfilled By Amazon" jerkoffs.

    All that wait for a rotten price. It was cheaper to import reissue Metroplex from TakaraTomy. I think even Generations Metroplex was cheaper!

    More extortion here. I'm glad this mold is available, but this is a $40 toy. Even accounting for a lower run, this price is outrageous. If you thought Toys R Us was the problem when reissue cars were $35, KMart and Amazon have shown you that there is only one constant behind ridiculous prices, and it isn't the retailer.

    This is why I think Target bailed on Trypticon. I got mine from The Chosen Prime back in August I believe and I love him. I understand the frustration with amazon.com.

    I fail to see why people are complaining about the price now, we have known for half a year that it would be in this range based on the fact that every single other retailer had it for 200$ and up. Even amazon.ca had it for 180$. Why would anyone think he would magically cost less than 100$ when amazon.com had it?
    People said they would hold off because the main distributor in the states would have it cheaper than online collectable retailers and he is, he is 40$ cheaper. Thats better than what a deluxe costs on amazon compared to what it would cost on bbts.

    So whats with the big surprise?

    Get your facts straight, Hasbro announced the day after the presentation that they made a mistake and that it was with amazon. As far as we know it was always an amazon exclusive, and never switched hands.

    Ya the price is reasonable to me and it will probably just go up in price later better to pay the 163.22 price they have right now then spending like 300-400 later. I am still seeing it as in stock too from Amazon

    I think the "out of stock at $200" was in reference to Trypticon selling out at TFSource at the $200 price point. I was confused as well and checked (since I am one of those hoping he will drop in price. :)  )
