Those prices are a joke. I got them off RobotKindgdom with the the total price plus shipping is less than those prices before shipping. I don't understand why people use BBTS, I really don't.

Only CG pics of Lambor/Red Alert and a silhouette of Soundwave (and he looks like he doesn't have a shoulder cannon)?
I'm not biting.

What do you expect for things that aren't going to see release until December?

A few reasons really for us in the U.S.

1. POL - saves tons of money on shipping.
2. Domestic store with excellent customer service - If you shop a lot online you will come across at least one problem. BBTS rules in this aspect and you don't have ship defective product back to Hong Kong.
3. Price for all three at BBTS - $342.76 shipped
Price for all three at RK shipped to U.S. - $343.48.
4. You can preorder without putting a penny down.

IF you use the POL feature, then BBTS is cheaper.

oh god. how I wish that were possible with a UK-based store. Certain retailers have missed out on so many pre-orders from be simply because I don't want to commit £xx.xx out of my funds for months without seeing anything for it.

BBTS is the better choice for those of us in the States. Plus, they made good on the cancellation of the Chell Portal gun by giving those of us who had our preorders cancelled a full 5 days to order one before making it available to the general public. Now, whereas before we were going to have one portal gun and that's it, my girlfriend and I are going to each have the one for the co/op character we play as. I'm P-Body, she's Atlas.

Thank you for four reasons to be happy I'm not in the US.

1. POL is over rated unless you live in US. For the rest of the world it costs people more money.
2. RK has excellent after sale service. My problems have been sorted out with no need to send things back.
3. Price from BBTS before shipping - $329.79
Price from BBTS to my location using new prices - $384.14
Price from RK with shipping to my location - $316.29
4. I don't like buy now pay later, it's a good way to get further into debt. I can afford them now, I bought them now. Christmas is already an expensive time of the year, dropping $316 and paying for gifts for other people will be even worse.

I am very happy with the price reduction. Still a little pricey, but hope I will be wowed with the test shots.

EDIT: NVM me, just realized I probably should've waited a little longer before jumping that gun again and pre-ordering from TFSource. >_<

I preordered them before I had to go to work tonight and something hit me while I was there: I just ordered 3 Masterpieces for less than the cost of Giant! Holy f***ing crap!

Did anyone get the "thank you" email from bbts where they dropped the price of Mp-13 to 139.95 to those of us who pre-ordered??? Friggin AWESOME!! Between that and their rediculous awesome customer service, they are the place to go...HANDS DOWN! (No, I don't work there, lol)

Site Sponsor BigBadToyStore has sent an email to its members offering a Customer Thank You to those who have preordered the new Materpiece Red Alert, Sideswipe or Soundwave. This thank you takes the form of a 10 dollar reduction for each new Masterpiece. If you've been holding out for a lower price, it probably won't get much better than this!

I talked some shit about their initial price so I suppose I should at least own up and recognize their continued price cuts...especially if RK doesn't follow suit and drop their price a good $10-15.

At their current price offerings, I'm leaning toward getting them at release rather than waiting to see what Hasbro offers up domestically. How butt-hurt will I be later?

Oddly enough, I skipped the Masterpieces and went straight for that MiB Gun.

:KREMZEEK: Well considering that close to 1k ( much to do with Green Giant's expense ) has been spent there this year it is much appreciated the way to go is with the Pile of loot action....patience is a virtue but it does help your shipping cost :CON: Companies cannot operate with giving away their product. I feel that BBTS is pretty fair with prices overall and have good customer service. :BOWDOWN:

Agreed..Once I started using the POL feature BBTS became pretty much the only retailer online I purchase from.
