    What size class is BW Neo Heinlad, and what was his MSRP? Also, to those that own the figure, what do you think is a fair price to pay for him? Thanks in advance to anyone who can help.

    I think he's an ultra figure [like BW Primal, Megatron, Depth Charge, Big Convoy etc]. I don't know his japanese retail, I'm guessing around 3000-4000 yen back then?

    He's a steal for the 24 or so bucks he so frequently goes for now, to be honest.

    Ultra, 2980 Yen in 1999, Anything under $50 is probably a good deal.

    I've had him for years. I've used him as an alarm clock. He's a fun and notable Transformer. Plus he's a member of the BWNeo cast, which I really rather enjoyed.

    Current new value is more like the previously mentioned $24.00.
    Not hard to find at all for comparable prices.

    Yeah, I've seen him between $20-$30 many times (I got mine for about that), though I suppose it depends on how MISB or not he is. Someone can correct me on this, but is there not also a Korean edition for this guy, which is probably cheaper than the Japanese edition?

    Great figure. By today's standards, probably an Ultra, or a rather hefty Voyager at the least. He's about the same height as ROTF Bludgeon or Inferno, but a bit chunkier all around.

    Heinlad never hit the Korean market, as far as I know. Definitely a good figure for the $25 or so it goes for, and it's high up on my list of things to reacquire.

    I got mine for $25 and I think he's brilliant for that price.

    My only advice is that you want him, he's freaking awesome.

    Ah. I wasn't sure, since a lot of those Japanese BW figures did get released in Korea. I always get BW Neo and BW II mixed up.

    Tanooki transformers can't go wrong. If the clock still works that,s cool and worth a bit more then $24. Don't forget Heinlad can freeze or slow down time itself! He's something more than just a recruit cybertronian.

    Fun alt mode, bottle of sake that turns into a gun, working alarm clock (currently use him as my own alarm clock, actually), neat goggle gimmick, and an all around solid robot mode.

    For his size, $40 or so would be reasonable. Since he's easily findable for around $25, you really should get him if he interests you at all.

    Got mine from BBTS for $25.00, I think they still have him. I think he is a cool and interesting mold and worth it.
