I was in the same boat, I didn't want to spend all that clink at once, but I figured if I combined all that shipping, I would end up saving some dough on stuff I was going to end up ordering anyway.

I put it all on Bill me Later, so I can pay it off as I come up with the money.


RK has 'Bill me Later'? How did I miss this before? Well, regardless, I won't have the money if this thing releases in January anyway.

I'll be pre-ordering both of these. The articulation looks outstanding and the diecast is a nice touch. Well played Perfect Effect

ARGH!!! What to do, what to do, what to do.

Currently have zero fembots. The only female Autobot I'm interested in getting is an Arcee (don't really care about Chromia, Moonwalker or Firestarter), but I'm struggling to get past the whole Arcee as a motorbike thing. That being said, I don't think we'll ever get a fembot that looks this good in robot mode that transforms into a car.

Thinking I may have to pull the trigger on the pink.

I'd also like to learn more about this "Bill me later" option mentioned by rpetras.

looking really good. seems expensive though.am holding off right now. the robot mode is good enough for a Classics Arcee, and I do like the bike mode, but it's not specific enough that I couldn't end up using it as someone else if I miss out on the pink one and get a later repaint.

Just went to preorder the pink and the blue... cheapest shipping to the USA was $26. So, for the two bikes, my total is $186. This seems a little steep to me. I was figuring this would be more like $50-60 each, plus like $10-15 shipping.

Anybody have any thoughts on whether it's worth seeing if other places, like BBTS, will carry it? For less? Or will the preorders sell out?
Any thoughts?
Thanks.

I'm going to say that it's likely that other stores who have stocked Perfect Effect stuff in the past might get this in.

I have all the official authority and actual knowledge of this that a raccoon raking through Mr. T's bins does though, so it's up to you.

BBTS has offered everything PE has put out. I'm sure the pre-order is coming. Be patient guys.

Went ahead and preordered both at BigBad for $90 each unshipped.

Looks to be an order of 500 pieces for either color for an initial shipment (1000 total) at this one e-tailer. Should be plenty come this April.

I know that Hasbro may unveil an arcee in the upcoming conventions, but I have a feeling it wont have sharp edge swords or a sniper rifle that looks like Motobot's.

I really like the fact that it comes with a comic... story will be paramount in keeping the blue variant's preorder.

Wait, it's MORE expensive at BBTS than at RobotKingdom? I was counting on the opposite happening...
