As for the Retail version, why would I buy a package deal for 100 dollars when I can simply spend the 14.99 in stores and buy them seperately? ...Totaling 75 dollars.

Whats the incentive to buy them as a package deal?


The G2 set is $60, compared to $75 for the retail version. Only the SDCC set is more expensive than the retail one. So if you can get the G2 version for $60, that's your best option. It's the cheapest AND (IMO) the best-looking.

That's the retail version, with a substantial markup tacked on by BBTS. You can buy those individual figures at retail for $15 each for a total of $75. BBTS is just doing the work for you so you don't have to run around town trying to find all five figures. But when we talk about the "$75 retail version", that's what we're talking about.

BBTS is also selling the G2 set, with better colors and better packaging, at $60: http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/prod ... ode=retail

You want the cheapest retail version?

Hasbrotoyshop

http://www.hasbrotoyshop.com/SearchResu ... 1354068760

Free shipping and not sure it the code still works but try FRIENDS2012 for 20% off. If it still works $60+tax Bruticus delivered to your front door.

If the code doesn't work, then you get a $75+tax Bruticus delivered to your front door with no gas wasted.
