    Not really. You over paid by like $30.00. Still at that price X9 Ravage is worth it.

    thanks guys. Now all I need is an original Black Arachnia and I'll have every show character. Even though I do agree I paid a little to much. I still think I got a deal on him, because I couldnt find him anywhere for under 150.

    I've just been to the Showcase forum and saw your BW collection.
    Looking forward to the update with Ravage. It's so rare you don't even see one in Japan very often, congrats :)

    I'm really kicking myself for not buying that X-9 Ravage for $50 at Botcon last year. What was I thinking?

    the only reason I decided to get it is because I actually got to transform one recently. and kind just look at it. and it was an awesome figure. it reall does take all of what makes TM1 cheetor and make it look so much cooler.

    You were likely thinking;

    "Hmn, $50 for a Ravage I'll be selling to Twin Twist in 6 months, or do I wait and go large at Hooters?"

    lol drama on the internet.

    125 is a lot more than i'd pay for it. I'd pay 75 tops. It's just a pity they can't be had for that much anymore.

    I got mine for free:) 

    Thanks to dlatkow, who gave it to me for my birthday.

    He is a great BW to have too, especially if you really love the show (who can't?). He was a great character in one of the best episodes of TF animation ever. That with Jap exclusivity make for a cool toy. I just can't believe he never found his way into US markets.

    The fact that you're asking at all makes me think you feel you overpaid. But in my experience, if you want something bad enough to pay more for it, then whether or not you overpaid is your own opinion.

    I wouldn't pay that much for it, but then I'm cheap too. And I usually go for loose TFs in good condition when adding older TFs to my collection.

    But as a wise, fat orange cat once said, "It's not the having, it's the getting."
