    The price is a bit high but how many of these have been seen for sale? Ive counted 3 not including this one. The same seller offered me one when it first came out for $99, the next went for over 50000yen + proxy fees and the third for 35000yen + fees. You might think the price is stupid or insane but do you collect any rare items or is it all just retail stuff?

    Ebay:
    Many of us have been looking for an opportunity to pick this guy up for a while; he's one of only a handful of exclusive/campaign Microns I'm missing personally.

    This price is a little out of scope, but not dramatically... a few hundred less seems more realistic. If I had the cash sitting around, I'd jump on it. Need a new TV, though. :)

    I think this is the highest I've seen it but like everyone has said - He's rare.

    Oh well.

    Its all about how you collect/what you collect.

    indeed and lucky draws don't appeal that much to me, not that i wouldn't buy one at a flea market being sold for dirt cheap

    If you don't mind me asking, what's with the name? I thought the thread title was a joke, but it appears there is an actual Transformer with the name Drago Yell? :confused:  Does it mean something else in Japanese, or did the Takara dudes really make a Rocky IV reference?

    As for the price, well, I'm with the original poster.

    Wow... I knew they were rare, but I didn't realize it could go for THAT much. Just another example, I guess, of rarity inflating prices crazily to prey on people's collector OCD.

    This little guy does haunt me a bit, though.... I feel like he, the two Henkei Lucky Draws, and the unreleased Wonderfest black Convoy will forever stand between me and having a complete Classics/Universe collection.
