    omega same price as bbts. I'll stick with bbts since they don't charge me tax.

    Me too! Ugh! I waited for Amazon, but they charge me tax! It's actually more expensive on Amazon, even with free shipping. I put in my order on BBTS.

    Same here. I want this but probably won't have any cash until late this year. I'm hoping the price doesn't shoot up like Unicron's did percentage wise.

    Still not seeing it. If it was there before, it's not now. At least for Omega.

    I paid like 8$ in tax so 108~ total on Amazon. How much does BBTS charge to ship it? Less than 8 bones?!

    Thanks. I just figure to get a good looking version of Omega for 100 is actually pretty good, considering similar size TFs out there. Sometimes size matters I guess, haha.

    I really don't think the Genesis X one is worth anything near it's asking price.

    $100 for Omega is too steep for me.I'll have to wait and hope for a cheaper price down the road.Who knows.....


    That Prime is an easy pass though.I hate that mold.

    Whoa, whoa, whoa... hold the phone! $79.99 and $99.99 for Fatimus and Omega Supreme. I payed like $35/40 for Voltron... I mean Optimus, and only $50 for Omega Supreme. A new arm and head does not justify that price and what I payed for Optimus doesn't even justify it. That was a terrible mold.

    This gives me time to save up after Masterpiece Soundwave comes out. Pre-ordered, because it's just too cool to pass.

    Cheapest shipping option on BBTS is $12.79 for UPS so Amazon is still cheaper with tax included at least in California. Still, if you add other items into the same BBTS shipment, BBTS would be more worth it potentially. Still, I'm not sure if I wanna go with Amazon again as I went with them for G2 FOC Devastator and both times they shipped one to me, the boxes were beat up. What's worse was that they got thrown up on sale sale a few weeks later.
