I'm wondering if they were able to drop the price a bit by offering both toon and toy versions at the same time? Maybe that's one of the reasons why Skids is pretty cheap? If they get their repaint money right away maybe they can lower the price? That rumored price sounds way too low to me. Easier on the wallet if it's true but it makes me nervous about MPs using less paint etc. going forward. Maybe TT is trying to expand the MP price range by having the less prominent characters at lower prices? Soundwave V2 would probably be a higher spec release but maybe combiners and characters like Skids will be lower spec releases?
