    Ehobbybaseshop still have a couple MP Soundwaves in stock, for $240... BUT, if you buy this month, the $20 discount code brings it down to less than BBTS, and shipping will be cheaper. But when they go out of stock, BBTS is a good source to fall back on.

    Slightly cheaper than BBTS. Any particular reason why that we can think of?

    They must be getting mixed up with the Hasbro release, as the JP version would never be that cheap. If it really is TakaraTomy releasing another production run at almost half their first batch, it's gonna upset a lot of people who bought one of the first ones.

    And it's not like they'd be dropping the price to compete with the Hasbro version, as they've never done that with other MPs that had second runs... and it is a different market anyway, so isn't affected by what Hasbro releases.

    Yeah, I thought it was a pretty unusual price drop. I'm expecting RK to make an update either about the price or the item being incorrect. BBTS already have their second run of MP-13 in stock.

    My Takara Soundwave was $170 from BBTS, but I assume that's after their shipping and profit markup.

    Hey I just noticed HLJ's original sale price for Soundwave was ¥12,640, which would be currently around $128 US. So, maybe not that unreasonable?

    Edit to add:
    Via Seibertron.com, Cybergundam blog is reporting a rerelease of MP-13 is scheduled for September.

    Just seems real convenient that BBTS suddenly had MP-13 "In stock" and a few hours later pre-orders for a second run pop up on various online retailers at a fraction of the cost.

    I'm just speculating, but it does seem as though they kept a number of these for sale at a later date when the market price had gone up to make themselves a higher profit. They just didn't count on Soundwave receiving a second run.

    Up for pre-order at $159.95 on tfsource too
