    The figure was given to lucky draw winners at TRU, though I couldn't find the info about the condition of entry or the number of winners. I think the going price is about the same as Fox Kids import?

    I recently saw one on Yahoo! Japan auctions and see them every once in awhile. I'd say a fair price would be $20-25 since the only thing different about this release is the white shipping box.

    I don't think Cheetor, Rhinox or Airazor are plentiful, but they aren't really rare either.

    Still a nice deco on a great mold plus you've got the nifty white box.

    If it isn't that valuble to you, you could always modify it into an, X9 Ravage (or Metals Ravage?), which is kinda rare. You could use an Alt Battle Ravage head for the new head.

    Now I always get confused about the technicality. What's the definition of lucky draw?

    I am not clear on how this Cheetor could be won, there might have been a sort of lucky dip thing at TRU shops to win instantly or you might have had to leave your name and address to enter the draw at the TRU you shopped.

    As for the price I saw one going for 4000yen (not Yahoo jp auction).

    Yeah, the details on those are kinda sketchy. I heard it was a contest @ select TRU stores...probably a form that was filled out and left in a box for a later drawing.

    Not sure what the definition of Lucky Draw is, but the guys over @ Transformers @ the Moon could probably tell you.

    See, that's how I get confused. For example, a TV magazine gold whatever TF is a LD figure, I understand that. But for this toy (Cheetor), there must have been some kind of draw involved as well. Your name had to be drawn out of the barrel to win the toy. The same word can be used for both figures (抽プレ-draw prize) in Japanese. Only difference would be the "激レア-extremely rare" tag a seller would attach to the magazine prize figure.

    So I assume in English (or at least among collectors) the term LD has some extra meaning to it, like the number of the toys produced? I want to know that :)
