    Anime Island had theirs lowered to $277 with free shipping. But they no longer have any available.

    BTW,

    anyone parting with their Miracle Works Vehicle Voltron (version 2 preferably)?

    I'm in long island and I had only seen the black Lion and purchased him. I was in Florida last week on vacation and found the yellow and red but I need the blue and green for full Voltron. I'm hoping that these will all be sold for a while so I can get them all. Anyone have any idea why they are so scarce?

    they never lowered it to $277, it was always $277 and if you were one of the earlier people that preordered it with the coupon it was around $250 shipped.

    Also Cruchyroll seem to still have it for $299

    I am bummed that I didn't buy all the LD lions when I had the chance. Since buying only the black, red, and blue someone bought out the remaining yellow and green (there were 2 of each left 2 when I got the other lions). Now I cant find the yellow or green lions locally :( .

    On a side note BBTS got back to me since raising the price. They are willing to honor the price of 299.99 although priority shipping is $34 to Hawaii, its still the cheapest and availability currently. But if I choose to then I have 24 hours to do so.

    Wow I'm impressed! I might pick up another. I bought mine for 299 through them. I didn't think they would budge honestly.

    Good to know

    Gotta do it asap though, since I inquired about it when within 7 days of the price change, think that's why they were willing to help.

    I buckled down and bought the $40 version. It's nice. I'm saving my money for the transforming die-cast version that will fit my shelf space a bit better, as well.

    Just out of curiosity, how did you get BBTS to lower their price back to $299.99? Did you ask them to price match Crunchyroll or some other website? I would much rather buy it from BBTS for its original price if I could.

    It seems like everyone is waiting for playmates to send new shipments of the combiners. Seems like EVERYONE is sold out.

    Thanks for the tip. I sent an email myself a little while ago. Not sure if it will make a difference, but I figured it would be worth a shot.
