    The producer says its currently limited to 100 pieces. More info here: mastercollectors

    All in all its really quite nice. But its definitely for those of us who can paint. Or at least pay for painting :) 

    If this is old news Please excuse me, its the first I've seen of it.

    -=edit=-
    My bad about the 50 pieces, don't know where I got that from.

    I personally will probably pass on this in hopes of an official Wheeljack from Has/Tak.

    It's going to be a hard paint since its red plastic. But on the plus side that is a NICE modification kit.

    I just cant believe it would only be 50 pieces produced, when you have hundreds of thousands of collectors. That puts that up there on a Lucky Draw scale.

    On the site it says that they are currently reviewing stickers. So I guess it won't be as plain as in the pictures. Anyone ordered from them before? Also they've planned 100 kits for the moment and might do 100 more, making the total 200 kits according to the site.

    I have to say I don't find this as terrible as everyone else seems to. It's probably a lot better than I could do.

    Mind you I do think it still costs too much.

    However long it takes Hasbro to make a Classics Wheeljack, I'll wait for that. Or buy a custom off eBay, because I can't customize for crap.

    Yea, as decent as this looks, it would become a debacle in my hands. My customizing skills go as far as putting the stickers on the Transformer, and this is even a chore.

    I do think it is a decent look, and will love to see what some of the painters from Radicons can do with it.

    and that price is just insane.
