BBTS is now offering the exclusive Encore Ratchet (Emergency Green version). But it doesn't come cheap.

You may either love or hate the colors, but this exclusive is definitely a tough one get.



Here's what BBTS has to say:

"This item is only available in Japan if you purchase a $30 book, fill out a mail-order slip and pay retail pricing for the item. We are lucky enough to have a supplier in Japan who is willing to find the books and fill out all the paperwork needed for this item. Because of the expense and time spent on his end, our selling price is a bit high, but it is the best we can do on this item. "

That's a very reasonable price considering the difficulty involved.

BBTS needs to change their supplier, I'm getting the book and two figures for that price.

Of actual intrest, they restocked the Golden Disk set and Unicron stand with a note that this'll most likely be the last time they can get them.

The Golden Disk set is real nice, I ordered one a while back but it was to nice to open, so I'm happy that I got a chance to get a second one for actual use.

The first one is in a display case, and one day I swear I'll make it to some conventions and get it taged up by some Beast Wars staffers.

Here is the link and quote from BBTS

"This item is only available in Japan if you purchase a $30 book, fill out a mail-order slip and pay retail pricing for the item. We are lucky enough to have a supplier in Japan who is willing to find the books and fill out all the paperwork needed for this item.

I think it is funny that BBTS found some guy to manually fill out a bunch of mailaway forms that come with a $30 book so they can import this hideous thing from japan at a price that only the most dedicated of collectors would pay.

Have to admire BBTS' efforts to make every TF on the planet available through their store.


Is the book gonna be included with this?

I dunno. The work they're putting in to getting it, including the retail value of it, plus the fact that they have to make a profit in the first place makes $150.00 not incredibly unreasonable.

Im sure this is a limited figure and the value could jump significantly in years to come.

Or I could be completely wrong and you're wasting $150.00 bucks.

But I cant even find a regular Encore Ratchet for half that price.

And as much as I like Ratchet, I just can't get into this repaint. The diaclone colored Ironhide, yeah, but not this Ratchet.

BBTS Pre-Orders are normly, great. I always use them as a first reference, then shop elsewhere, but the pre-orders almost always rock!

For $150 I could get a MP Prime, but I already have one. So I'm going to get this Ratchet instead.

I thought the same thing when I pre-ordered it earlier.

Isn't it one figure per book? Anyway, BBTS is not dealing with only 1 figure, so you can't compare.
