Auction for Movie Wonderfest G1 Arcee

Postby starfish » Fri Feb 15, 2008 1:16 pm

Just saw it on ebay, don't know if it's old news or not.

P.S. I am not the seller, but I HAVE just bought one! Only 1 left now!

Eh, not worth the money for a pink bike that's supposed to be black anyway.

Ah, I forgot! At 99 USD, that's the equivalent of 10 regular deluxe figures at retail, right?

But in the UK, that equates to 50 GBP - and as deluxe figures retail here for 10 GBP, for us Brits that works out to only five times the price for a retail deluxe figure. So it's relatively cheaper for us, if that makes any sense at all!

Like the Vardia Starscream. I could justify picking that up for 240 USD / 120 GBP, because that's only five times the price of a regular Voyager here (25 GBP), but for you guys used to paying 20 USD for a Voyager, that's like 12 times the price!

MY LORD!!! Everything is so expensive in the UK. Thats insane. No wonder there's a Disgruntled Brits Thread.

Maybe I should start my own TF store that can tailor itself to overseas buyers so they get US prices on items. And NOT the ridiculous inflated prices you get at some other online retailers.

Im gonna look into that.

I'd like to have a black Arcee. Will it be released outside of Japan?

BTW I'm not too big on the G1 colours. I think I'm one of the few people who really liked the deeper colour on her for the movie line.
