    Thirty dollars? Hell no, not even worth the twenty minute drive.

    As everyone else is saying: "$30?!?!"

    Not that I was going to buy it anyway(being the old mold and all...even though I do collect Skywarps), but a $10 price hike ain't what I'd call low prices.

    Why oh why couldn't they just keep it at $20?? I hope that's not the price for all voyagers now.

    ...even $25 given the fancy packaging, but $30? p-shaw.

    If all Movie Voyagers are $30 big pass on all of them. If Hasbro see that were buying at $30, they'll probably jack up the MSRP.

    It has to be a pricing computer error, it has to be. Wal-Mart wouldn't knowingly offer an exclusive they know won't sell, and at a higher price than other offerings in the same size class.

    I'm not interested in buying, so it's no biggie to me, but the $30.00 has to be an error.

    Thirty clams for a Voyager? That dog won't hunt, monsignor.

    Ah well; my plan was always to wait to see if these hit clearance. Now it's just more inevitable.

    Well TRU has their Ultra Class exclusives for $5 more than all the other Ultra class figures. They make us pay more cause thats the only place we can get them. Damn exclusives. Why don't they do it like the Target exclusives, jack up the price but throw in a little figure in there.

    I doubt they are going to sell many at $30, so I'm gonna wait it out and buy them on clearance. They are still kick ass, but yeah, anyway.

    I'd start considering Ramjet at $10, probably buy him at $5

    Skywarps $30. bucks?

    now I don't feel so bad for passing over T'cracker and selling my G1 deco Starscream away.

    not really a fan of that mold anyway. Top heavy, chicken legs, no hands, etc. Though the new mold looks really nice.

    :banghead:  Now the scalpers will really jack these up! I will get Skywarp if I see it. I am not interested in a lot of the Voyagers from ROTF. So it won't break the bank. So Skywarp has a different head? hmmm

    You mean like the Walmart exclusive Wolverine figures that are $10.44 for soft goods jackets and no accessories?
    Compared to $8.44 for the normal retail figures?

    I was going to get both, but since they're $30 each I think I'll just get Skywarp.
