    Doesn't a fellow board member from Indonesia got a bunch of them? I wonder if BBTS bought him out?

    :lol  I know, I'm afraid I'll have to declare bankruptcy. Luckily I'm not much of a gambler at all so that helps a TINY bit.

    I'll be on the lookout for Fatburger! Anything that sounds that unhealthy has to be delicious! :)

    I'd say go for it if you don't have it. I got mine for 128 shipped on the initial run of 2000. Great figure.

    Hmmm. I've hear it's a good figure, but not $75 good. At least for me. I know it's like a limited edition type figure, but...

    Try to add a high number of an item in your cart and the available quantity will show. For example add Swerve to your cart. Change quantity to 100. Update cart and the available quantity will be shown. Right now 17 is now available.

    That's just higher than what I paid for it off ebay when it first got released. Not bad.

    I just had Fatburger for lunch. yum.

    $75 ... Too bad. I have seen it in real life and it is a neat toy.... but $75 for a Has-Tak deluxe (not FP) is too much.

    I was fortunate enough to get one for free + shipping up here when they were being given away in Canada, a bro hooked me up on Cybertron.ca. He is a pretty rad figure and has a really cool and unique transformation. It is sad that these never hit mass retail.

    There's only 10 left now. I watched Vangelus' review on it and it pushed me over the fence. His transformation is cool and considering his "semi-grailish" nature and rarity, I just couldn't pass him up. I figured somewhere down the road I would regret passing him up so I bit the bullet.

    Given that Swerve was a GM promotional toy only given away/sold in England and Canada in limited quantities, that's not a bad price. At it's zenith, it was commanding well over $100 and in some cases approaching $200.

    I was fortunate enough to get one from a guy in England off Ebay for a very reasonable price ($50 ish dollars plus shipping).

    If you don't have this guy and can afford him, don't think twice! Get him!
    He's one of my all-time favorites.

    This is one of the few figures that "got away". I had 2 chances to this guy for almost nothing, and didnt pull the trigger. Been kicking myself since. Every time I read, see, come across, or hear about this figure - I feel like a tool for not getting it when I could.
