    I lucked into BBTS having some "Substandard" ones back in January that ended up being mint in sealed shipping box.

    (Ended up with all of the UW stuff save Grand Scourge)

    Especially when you consider Voyagers are now $30, and Snapper has two foot accessories, his sword, his gun, and his shield.

    It’s pretty much what I expected based on the costs for the Takara legends figures, so no surprise here. And arguably a better deal since many of the legends were mostly repaints, some with a minor bit of retooling. These are pretty extensively retooled.

    Ugh. Piranacon is going to be $230 (plus tax). That's approaching Chogokin Voltron prices.

    Not too bad. Of course I wish they were mass releases but I'll take what I can get.

    Have we seen any info on the packaging?

    Damn you HasTak. Snap Trap and Skalor came out to $101 after taxes. That's more than I paid for CW Superion or Defensor!

    Transformers Unite Warriors UW-EX Lynxmaster uw lynxmaster for $220
    takara pricing is what you should be going by for these releases, they are imports. cw pricing has nothing to do with this equation honestly other than percieved value

    I realize that. I was just making a point that Superion and Defensor together were less than Piranacon.

    Even UW Computron was a lot cheaper even though it could be argued that there were 3 new molds.

    Edit: 3 new molds (Afterburner, Strafe, Nosecone)

    fair, but its only $15 more than lynxmaster (if pricing stays consistent) and has an extra deluxe

    When Lynxmaster first dropped (along with the other UW-EXs) they were about $160-180. The reissue prices are where they climbed. Lynxmaster especially since he has the Ratchet figure that never came stateside compared to the Superion reissue that by now everyone who cared had either bought or found Quickslinger.

    I guess the other benefit is that Piranacon doesn't look like he needs any additional 3rd party weapons to look complete.
