Copper color weapons for the win! Really pretty, those.

Seems like that price should be the price to import these from e-Hobby. Has BBTS, TFsource or any of the other online retailers posted pre-orders for the e-Hobby sets yet?

Agreed. I hope they don't sell out soon, because at $200, I won't be getting these guys until I finish the list I got goin on right now...

And I still find it surprising that they still snubbed their Facebook followers when it comes to this, as something as big as this should have been posted there the same time it was Tweeted. Then again, they also excluded a e-HOBBY link on their page, while e-HOBBY posted a TFCC banner/link on theirs. >:oP

Also, I am wondering if this is Takara Tomy's second exclusive that was sold by both e-HOBBY in Japan and in an area that sells Hasbro Transformers. Because I read somewhere that the first was A-01U Ultra Magnus, who was also sold at the Transformers China Carnival in 2010. Even then, this is still a piece of Transformers history.

But with the price... I have to pass. I need to set up my 2013 vacation plans, and other stuff. Plus, I am iffy about trusting TFCC right now. So those who get it through them... Good luck. >:oP

Seeing how the items go on sale tomorrow, I am assuming we will hear something from them as early as the same day. TFsource, however, I'd give them an additional day or two on this. :-?

True. But those are not originals, much less exclusives, like these are. ;)

Yeah, but it's 7 toys... That's only like $28.57142857142857 each! Not too bad for an exclusive. LOL.

I'm not sure I see the price as being way too high. IIRC the last Soundwave reissue was on par with a new Voyager figure, price-wise. Blaster is a lot bigger, so probably be double the price, and the cassettes in their Encore line haven't been cheap. Plus this set is in exclusive paint colours and may or may not have some kind of yellow thing that we've only seen artist's renditions of, so may be entirely fictional. Still, if I had the money, and actually wanted these things, I'd buy.

as they are though, it's only the tapes I'm even a little bit interested in, and I'd maybe stretch to 50 bucks for them.

It's 6 toys, as the seventh is a "bonus" piece. But I do agree that the pricing is not too shabby when you separate the items into their own categories. :-?

I mean, lets say that each tape is $15 each. That is a $60 set right there. That is a really good price for a set of four tapes, especially when they are compared to the Encore sets.

And that least SG Soundwave and SG Blaster being $70 each. Which makes them a great price, taking into account that they are exclusive pieces. ;)

Just take into account that these items are not Hasbro exclusives, but rather ones that are tied to Takara Tomy. So when it comes to pricing, items like this go by an import pricing and not a domestic pricing. ;)

That's incredibly pricy. Even compared to previous eHobby exclucives.

Agreed, when compared to some. Because the 2008 exclusive "Gadep" was pretty huge. And 2011 Black Rodimus Convoy was a Masterpiece. But the rest...

...They were not this big of a set, especially the G1 exclusives. ;)

I'm not saying the price is high for e-Hobby exclusives. I'm saying the price is high for it being sold as a club exclusive. I would expect that would be the price we'd pay for the actual imported e-Hobby exclusives via BBTS or TFsource. This price doesn't seem like the Club is doing any of us any favors. I had expected the price to be cheaper. For that price, I'll just order them when the e-Hobby ones come out.

I was all in at $150, but at $200 I think Ill pass. The cassettes were all I really wanted.
