    That seems strange to me... are these the re-releases or did they find old stock?

    I'm all for making money, but if this is the re-release ones that had been mentioned in other threads, why are they so expensive?

    Exactly.

    They charged LESS for Bulkhead for Christ's sake! So you could have had a VOYAGER for LESS than a DELUXE (Bulkhead VS Vehicon). So much for me giving this company a chance, since they are basically taking advantage of people. I'm shocked that they re-sold Bulkhead for so low. Someone must have messed up there with the pricing. lol

    I'll have my FE Cliffjumper from SDCC, and since the Prime RID Vehicon is better...I can pass on the FE mold.

    Robot Kingdom Limited Restock on Transformers Prime First Edition

    Not sure if this has been posted yet but Robot Kingdom has a limited restock on TF Prime FE Deluxe figures. Great way to get a FE Vehicon for a better price than ebay.

    EDIT: Nevermind...already posted. didnt see it!

    The Vehicon is nice but the only reason I would want it is because it belongs to the FE run. To be honest the RID version is leaps and bounds better than the FE version. The only FE figure I want that I do not have (I am in Canada so I got all but two) is Zombie Cliffjumper.

    Not too much more than $36.90, I would imagine.

    So... This is a US version of the Vehicon, right?

    Does that mean we can assume this is going to be different, like all the others are?

    Given that the mainline Vehicon is shown to be better than the FE in terms of sleekness I think I'll just save my cash.

    It's the FE version of the Vehicon, not the US RID version.

    If you ask me, you'd be better off hitting EBay for the RID version that looks better.

    It seems to be a RK trend as of late. If they get a "limited restock", the price is a little higher than what they were originally charging. Personally i think it's still a good deal for anyone that wanted the FE figures and didn't get a chance.

    Oh yeah, if someone needs the Vehicon that's not a bad deal. RID is better but if you had to complete the FE "set" then this isn't too bad.

    But the other two, Arcee and Cliffjumper? I think I've seen them for less on the Junkion Exchange, and recently too.

    And the preorders go up when I'm sleeping. What a poor rerelease, Robot Kingdom said they would restock on FE Bulkhead the week after the preorder for it went up...and they never restocked on it.

    You could probably buy a few of the Vehicon (to lessen the shipping cost per figure) and then scalp them on eBay for a half-decent profit. I know I've seen them go for crazy prices. Hell, the one I got as part of a lot of toys I resold for about $90 (and that's from bidding, I didn't set the price that high).
