Fair play to them, that's a good price if it still includes the metal. Bear in mind that the Alternators aren't the same; this may also not be.

That means it'll cost $90 here in Canada. A little expensive but it's about what I expected to pay for it.

I like the price for US retail. But Australia, that would probably work out to roughly... (now add exorbinant profit margins, carry the one, and compare against Unicron)... A$200.

Unicron went for ~US$50-$60 or something like that and worked out to A$130-$150. Seeing that OP has always been purchased by collectors in whatever form he took, that means that Hasbro can possibly add a bit more to the RRP, seeing that most collectors will buy it, and get the money however they can.

Oh well, can always find out the real price in Jan(US) or February (AU probably as a TRU exclusive)

Well, seeing as the closest target is out of my way and usually doesn't have what I'm looking for (I've had to buy the last two exclusives online), I'll have to pay the extra $10 at TRU.

What makes the US Alternators different than the Takara ones? Do they not have metal? If the Hasbro ones are just plastic I'll definitely have to stick with the Takara releases.

90$ is way too much. You could get some games with that.
