    Hadn't seen this mentioned anywhere else, but if it has I apologize in advance and moderators feel free to kick it to the curb.

    Found this while browsing BBTS' latest pre-orders:

    Toshiba Red Movie Starscream

    I absolutely love exclusive stuff like this, but that's a bit pricey for my blood! :D  Still, I suppose if I had the extra cash... :lolol  I actually really like the colors too...

    Even with international shipping from Asia, it's still a good $80 or so cheaper on eBay.

    I find it amusing that he came with a player for a format Toshiba themselves have now abandoned.

    People is actually willing to pay for that thing?

    You gotta be kidding me. That is hideous since the first day I saw it and I can't believe how much it goes for. I believe the Premium SS would look even better.

    Ugly toys get alot more interest if they're Japanese ;) 

    The same goes with American toys sold in Japan - by virtue of being in Japan at some point in its existence makes it more valuable to certain individuals.

    After checking out eBay you're actually right. Wonder why he's jacking them up so much.

    Actually, for some reason I really really like the colors on him. Maybe because it's different? Really really different... that and I like limited/exclusive figures like this guy... yeah, I have a problem... :D

    i believe those had a run of 1000 or less...there was some article on a web site a while ago extolling the virtues of HD DVD and was waxing toshiba's ego about "issuing one of the most exclusive transformers" ever made....ugh.

    it looks neat but nowhere near $349 worth of neat.....

    Which is funny that some of their stuff is overpriced, because I got a Wonder Fest Exclusive Movie Arcee from them for $125 when the normal going price on eBay is close to around $150. Frankly, I've noticed that some of their stuff tends to be a bit overpriced, but some of their stuff is a good deal. But, yeah, those two that you listed are a bit much aren't they?

    I'd buy it as a Sunstorm standin if it was a domestic repaint release, but that price is laughable, even for BBTS.
