Hehe, I hear ya. I did preorder Sideswipe but didn't grab Red Alert until more recently (thank you ToyArena for still having him instock, saving me from the scalpers on ebay
Red Alert can still be found at reasonable prices, but there was one ebay crackhead selling customized versions in Stuntacon and G2 Sideswipe's colors for $600 each!!! They look great, but I could replace my iPad for that kind of money.
true. Of course, I don't have an iPad and wouldn't spend that kind of money on any phone or Apple product (I'm a biased Windoze user though, even though Windows is no prize by any stretch of the imagination).
Anyway, yes, those customs would be quite nifty, but definitely not $600 nifty. I'm still hoping that Takara gets permission to produce more Lamborgini Countache MPs so that they can do more Sideswipes etc. for the collectors who haven't been able to snag one yet as well as the prospect of a full remold to make Sunstreaker.
