BBTS Valentine's Day Sale
Posted 04 February 2012 - 12:48 PM
Looks like BBTS has a sale going with a handful of TF items marked down. It's the usual suspects on the list, but the Darkside Optimus Prime & Darkside Megatron set is now down to $59.00. I still have yet to jump on this set as it has not been on my top priority list for collecting, but is the current price a really good one for it? I don't seem to recall how much they actually went for at the toy show they were released at, but the price now is approx equal to two regularly imported United deluxes.
The set does look cool enough, but judging how long they've been sitting on these and the quantity they have in stock, it doesn't seem like the fandom took to them all that much. Regardless, I'm still considering owning them, but I was looking to get feedback/opinions on the current price before I jumped on this sale offering.

Actual retail price was ?5000, so at today's rate: 5,000.00 JPY = 65.2656 USD
Even a better deal considering what the shipping would have been initially from Japan, coupled with BBTS' Pile of Loot ability (if you've got one), etc.
I'd say go for it...plus, IMHO, they're very nice-looking repaints.

Yeah, I was AGOG at that purple when I got the toy. So gorgeous. I was like..."How did they DO that...?" It just jumps out at you.
