And when did the Yen drop? Deluxe and Voyager prices are still high, but some of the stuff is US priced.


Looking up the prices on eHobby shows these results:

Metroplex standalone: 18,753 Yen = $190
Metroplex + Optimus Prime & Bumblebee Legends: 21,832 Yen = $220


Still too high for me. Now if it was somewhere around $140, then I might bite.

Agreed. And I don't understand those prices at all. In this thread, the magazine scans in the first post show that Metroplex is $101.30

What Google did you use? I see the Yen price on the scan and it's at least 17,000, which is still $173. Me thinks you misread.
