    After months of not having a release date, not only is there a date, it was apparently yesterday.

    Like I needed more things to hit in Nov/Dec. heh.

    He's currently available as well if you didn't have him pre-ordered.

    I was starting to think this thing was cancelled.......

    Curious to see in package shots.

    Should this go to N+R?

    Quick! Nobody buy this right away so Amazon'll drop the price like they did on the Year of the Dragon Prime. :D

    dangit. I'm tapped out till next payday. I wish you could pay for stuff on amazon with paypal so I could use my bill me later option!

    Although, I do have the regular one, so maybe I should spend that money on ones I don't have instead of this repaint.

    Ugh, if it weren't for the paint job on the wings, I'd be all over that.

    yeah I really would have liked this mold but as far as the paint goes it looks like a leprechaun lost his lunch on it. not worth $100+. $40-$50 maybe for customization purposes. sad they didn't just do a plain paint app, I would have been fine with it.

    Samesies. If it drops down in price, I'll consider it. Otherwise, I'd rather spend the extra cash and get the one without the paint on the wings and gun.

    I was looking forward to getting this but I'm scared the price will drop. :lol 
    I'll give it a bit and see, it's not something I need right away.

    I fully intend on painting the guns a nice gunmetal grey, and the wings metallic silver.

    $105 + $10 on paint + a couple hours painting is much better than the $250 ebay prices.

    I'm looking forward to seeing this on clearance. I'll totally buy it at that point. Its a great mold and I don't have the extra bits.

    Maybe I'll wait, too. If I knew I couldn't get it cheaper I'd buy it now, but I don't want it so much that I'm not willing to wait... If I didn't already have RotF Prime, I wouldn't take that chance...

    Yea, I paid a bit more (some of it in trade) for the Asia version about a month before this one was announced, but not having these paint apps really softens the blow that it would have been.
