BBTS E-mail- Joel from BigBadToyStore.com passed along a little e-mail update to the customers who had pre-ordered the MP-Grimlock through his store.


Hi - We just wanted to send you a quick note letting you know the price on the MP-08 has been reduced from $149.99 to $143.99. It looks like our landed price will be a bit less than we anticipated, so we are passing those savings on to you. We have adjusted the preorder price on your account and thanks so much for buying from BBTS!

Thanks
Joel


Yes, it is still on the expensive collectible toy end, but $6 savings is better than the original price.

If the 7 lbs shipping weight is accurate, seems shipping would cost about $40 to the US making BBTS about 3 bucks cheaper in the end. Can we say un-pwned?

Ouch. But, let's be fair. Their shipping costs will definitely push the price well above BBTS. However, most collectors end up buying more than one item to save on shipping costs, and RK does combine shipping, so in the end...they're going to beat BBTS in sales on this one.

Are we sure this figure will weigh 7 lbs? The description said 4 figures per container. I have a feeling that is the net weight of all 4 figures. 1 3/4 lbs per figure sounds more accurate.

I still feel that BBTS has overpriced the figure and wouldn't don't if they lower the price again.

Dunno...that just what they're listing as the shipping weight. For what it's worth, they lists Megs shipping weight at 3.36, Magnus at 4.97, and MP-04 at 10.08. If accurate, would lead one to believe it's a bigger figure than Prime/Magnus with a good amount of die-cast. Either that or it comes in a heavy ass box...

I didn't know that about the other figures with their shipping weights. You may be right then that it will weigh more than the previous MP's.
