    Wow, expensive. I'll probably just end up getting Season 1 only.

    I'll probably stick to the individuals. They fit on the shelf.

    I wouldn't wait. These are listed as "While Supplies Last" and I imagine that any that make it to the secondary market are going to run upwards of $200.

    Oh please! This hobby is getting ridiculously expensive. The *ONLY* thing that should be expensive is a MIB original vintage G1 figure that's 20+ years old. All this Botcon, Japanese Henkei & E-Hobby exclusive crap plus $150 dvd sets is complete BULLSHIT! They know we love Transformers & they're taking advantage of us. Plain & simple!

    Oooh watch out for the secondary market! Better blow all your money ASAP before the big bad secondary market gets you! C'mon man! I don't like it when people use my passion for Transformers as a weapon against me. That's not cool!

    Had it been $100 shipped....I'd have been all over it.

    Guess I'll stick with my wooden box set that I got years ago for $98 shipped....until the price comes down

    Just curious... does anyone know how many Matrix of Leadership Sets they are making?
    Sense it says "while supplies last" I imagine they don't have a shitton of these being made.
    It be pretty cool if they were numbered though I highly doubt they will be.

    $140 for a complete series, plus extras is a damn good price. Don't know why people are complaining.

    I will wait for other places to put them up, because I've never dealt with that particular site.

    The site is the official Shout! Factory page for the box set. If I'm not mistaken this set is an exclusive from Shout! Factory through SDCC and the website.

    If you're going to SDCC you may want to wait. Shout factory have by their own description a limited pretty "neat" gift with purchase.

    While supplies last on their web store. Then Amazon and the big box stores get a crack at the set. This could be substantial savings if it ends up being sold on Amazon.

    I'm not sure if I should wait for retail (Amazon?) ...it's worth whatever price, honestly, but if I'm just paying extra to get it first I would rather wait. Maybe Shout can/will comment more on this.

    Judging from the HomeMediaMagazine.com quote below, it doesn't sounds like a "if Amazon sells the complete series set" situation but, rather, a "when Amazon sells the complete series set," which (if I had to guess) will be around the same time ROTF is released on DVD since Shout! Factory could piggyback on the film:

    I was thinking I would pass on this, but it was just too tempting. I just preordered and listed my rhino sets on ebay. Hopefully I'll break close to even. I think the price is well worth it compared to what I spent on the Rhino sets when they came out.

    Hmm... I placed the order for it. One has to wonder how long the wait is for this set to be available at retails, especially Amazon. I do not mind shelling out this much for it. A box set is never cheap unless you wait 5-10 years down the line for it to go into bargain-bin prices. Yet this is a special all-in-one packaging that some people will get first-crack at. While supplies last? I hope it is a limited supply.

    little to much for me no matter what the extras are. G1 was good but not that good. I loved G1 as a kid but when i rewatched them as an adult about 80% of them were so bad lol. Im glad i never bought them lol.

    The Rhino set is good enough for me. For those of you who want a new set of the original series, $140 seems like a fair debut price.
