    Nice. BBTS's "no charge 'til we ship" deal is great for stuff like Strafe.

    I still want that guy. Preordered Strafe though. Can't wait to see pics. It would be really cool if they gave him a new head.

    Cheaper than Wildrider was/is now.
    And this is speculated to be more valuable than Wildrider in the long run. Sounds like a pretty good deal, if you're into this kind of thing.

    Yeah, I paid like $145 on eBay only two months after Wildrider was released. I haven't seen him in forever though so I can only imagine how expensive he is now. Strafe... hard to say, but it is still cheaper then Wildrider was/is... cheaper then the WonderFestival G1 Movie Arcee figure was/is too for that matter.

    I think the thing that gets missed a lot of times is that figures like this are always expensive. It's an exclusive in Japan as is and it's also something that has to be imported to us. On a similar note... I wish my Japanese was better so I could go on some of their TF message boards and see how they react to Botcon Exclusives.

    Man, I'm still trying to save for Wildrider, hopefully Strafe isn't that tempting. At the same time I hope it looks awesome.

    Just ordered my Henkei Strafe and it looks as though there is only 15 or so left. I wouldve gotten two but dont have the cash for two of these....one of the clear mirages, and masterpiece grimlock and Botcon. Going broke...I tell ya!

    Wow. That's pretty fast. Well, actually, it's hard to guage how fast they're selling because no one ever checked at the begining how many they had and it's hard to tell how many of this exclusive they were able to get. Still, that seems fast to me.

    I like the TFU Cyclonus mold, but $110 for a Deluxe? No way.

    Well, a thread was started on Seibertron.com at 2:35PM yesterday.
    At 5:00PM it was stated here that there were 500 left!
    That sounds like a lot!! And in less then 24 hours they were used up.
