I feel really bad for those of us who paid the TakaraTomy price. $250.00+ and this one's rumored to be $100.00? Ouch.
I hate to see anyone get burned like that. Hopefully there's enough differences to make them happy with their purchase.
1. Takara's versions of MP figures have held better value than US versions. Heck even my Takara import of the US version of MP-03 Starscream sold for more than the actually US version did.
2. As will probably happen with this guy many will probably not seem them at their TRU, scalpers will buy more since it is Prime, and unfortunately many will have to pay more than retail to get this one.
The $225 retail I paid did not hurt as I paid retail. What hurts is if this guy comes in at $100 and he starts selling for $175 or more.....That hurts and that is getting burned.
Good luck to those who don't currently have the Takara version and want the US one. Hopefully he is easier to find at TRU than Grimlock was for many.
