    I think it is a bit high, myself, but I'm not sure how prevalent he is anymore.
    If nothing else, Toyarena (via Amazon) has him for about $55

    Whilst Korean BW toys are comparable to the original toys, (IMO) the boxes are pretty drab, and maybe a little on the cheap side (?). Possibly not worth paying the extra for.

    Just my 0.02.

    You should be able to find one easily for $50 or less if you are patient. They were $40 MISB at Botcon this year.

    I seen them as low as 20 loose so I'm sure you can find it in misb for a way cheaper price.

    From my experience, Toy Arena sells everything boxed & sealed. They'll specify if it's actually loose or opened.

    I agree with this. The Korean packaging (well, the Sonokong packaging, which the Korean Beast Wars Neo releases fall under) is a bit dinkier (toys are held in plastic trays with nothing really securing them, if I recall correctly, so stuff can bounce around a bit while en route).

    I have the Korean version. I don't know what the Korean boxed figure goes for currently, but if you want the figure boxed you should go for the Japanese release. The Korean box and insert is pretty dull. So much so that I didn't even bother to keep the packaging. The figure itself is top notch.

    Basically what others have said. Screw BBTS, go the ToyArena route. Of the Japanese Beast Wars stuff I do own, all except Bighorn are Korean versions. The boxes don't have that nice window for you to see the figure, but they are sturdy. Also the plastic tray that holds the figure within is sturdy as well. I bought BWII Galvatron & Starscream+BB a week back from ToyArena. Good stuff.

    I got one from ToyArena a month or so ago, boxed, $39.99 before shipping. If you can, too, you probably should.:thumb

    Despite being a Shell-former, this guy's a great figure.

    $75 is way too high. I got one for $44 at BBTS before they sold out and restocked again. He is fantastic for around that price.

    I have one. I may consider selling him. $75 is a rip.
