Weapon: Switch Blade Tail
So...according to Google, Metroplex's current pricing would be worth $101.30, which is a dollar and some chump change. So...why is the TakaraTomy asking price $250.00, again?? I know e-tailers have to factor in shipping costs, I get it, I do, but damn.

And when did the Yen drop? Deluxe and Voyager prices are still high, but some of the stuff is US priced.

I wish that Skywarp had more black on him. Either I'll end up importing him and taking a black sharpie to him, or I'll hope and pray for a domestic release that has appropriate amounts of black.

A lot of fun looking toys.

When eating planets alone isn't enough to satisfy the Chaos Bringer's hunger, Unicron comes to Earth to fill up on McDonald's. McDonald's golden arches will light our darkest hour (when the Chaos Bringer would not share) by clogging his arteries, raising his blood pressure, and giving him diabetes.

A better paint job and an extra gun? Although I do have to admit,it is rather steep a price difference. I just hope Hasbro doesn't go all cheapo on us and deliberately make the vanilla models look terrible.

Part of it is better quality, a lot of it is just the general trend. Everything is more expensive in Japan than it is in the US. It makes sense on some products, but by and large I don't get it.

The yen's exchange rate dropped within the last few weeks, and very suddenly. So everybody, import your stuff now before it skyrockets again! It's almost 1:1 and it ain't gonna stay that way for long. Maybe.

Looking up the prices on eHobby shows these results:

Metroplex standalone: 18,753 Yen = $190
Metroplex + Optimus Prime & Bumblebee Legends: 21,832 Yen = $220

Still too high for me. Now if it was somewhere around $140, then I might bite.

Agreed. And I don't understand those prices at all. In this thread, the magazine scans in the first post show that Metroplex is $101.30

What Google did you use? I see the Yen price on the scan and it's at least 17,000, which is still $173. Me thinks you misread.
