    For those still looking, TRU Vivocity has the new wave of ROTF deluxes in: Ice Cream Truck Twins, Blazemaster (peg-warmer), Jolt and Dead End.

    Combiner Class Devastator also available, also sighted 2x Voyager Class The Fallen on the shelves.

    Popped into Action Toyz IMM this evening for a look-see and saw a Leader Jetfire in the glass cabinet... priced at $179.90! :crazy: 

    I wonder how they are going to sell it at that price...

    andy> They won't. Their Henkei ultra classes are still fermenting at $99.90 a piece. :lol

    Now who in their right minds will pay 99.90 for Ultra class figures?

    Just cause its relatively rare, doesn't mean its right to jack up the prices. Honestly, i'd rather sell it at 50-60, earn something AND do that poor soul who's been searching high and low for it a good deed than let the figure collect dust and pray some fool without internet access and common sense stroll by and randomly decide "hey, i've got a 100 bucks, lets buy a transformer at a ridiculously inflated price today!"

    But maybe that's why i'm not much of a businessman....

    Haha...I don't think businessmen would sell their items at such ridiculous prices if they want to have a good turnover.

    I was thinking maybe the reason Action Toyz charges those crazy prices for some items is so that they DON'T get sold.... I dunno, maybe the owner is keeping them for himself and puts in the store cabinet just for display or something.

    You know, they were having quite a bunch of TakaTom's Premium Battle Mode Convoys sometime back & selling these for $125/piece. These sold out pretty quickly as I don't see any more around. :eek: 

    Also, they'd sold out their Henkei Red Powerglide at that price point! :eek: :eek: :eek: 

    I had a casual chat with one of their staffs at Vivo's branch & the boy was telling me that Action Toyz rely on customers from Batam & Indonesia. Understandably so since that branch was located at Harbourfront.

    Heh heh... please excuse me there, solitudinal bro.... I actually did not understand what that pic meant when you posted it previously.

    BUT NOW I DO! :D 


    So obviously Action Toyz do not really rely on their sales at the IMM branch since the stuff there do not actually move. I keep seeing the same old things there...

    They have another branch in Tanglin Mall called "Kidz Story" or something like that. I guess over there they prey on Minah Sallehas who don't know any better.

    Well, if they were to fold at some point, they can always consider becoming farmers. :lol 

    The same old stocks will probably still be there till TFs 3? :sly: 

    Then you'll see those stuffs disappearing from the shelves/gets transferred to Harbourfront where MORE of our Batam & Indonesian friends awaits. :lol

    Dude, try U-Toys at CSC, if I'm not wrong they might still have some Movie 1 Legends around.

    Hey... don't talk like that.. that's my country your talking about. We do have our own "up to date" store in Indonesia. I remember that I got my ROTF leader premium on may 29th ( I bought it at Walmart) and the next day some of my friends in Indonesia also have it.

    Man, read my previous quote & you'll see that the "info" was obtained through a talk which I had with the staff working in that specialty shop. We ain't even commenting about how fast/slow you guys get your stuffs so don't read this the wrong way. :)
