    Oh, nice, thanks for the info!

    You're going to have to be more specific than that. Currencies are usually denoted with three letters. You could go have a look at xe.com and see if you can find the currency you want. I doubt I can't help, but let's see... There's the Euro - maybe you're thinking of that? Looks like this: €
    Otherwise, I found this list which might help you: Currency Symbols
    The only other ones I can find are the Nicaraguan Cordoba (C$), the Costa Rican Colon (₡) and, technically, the Swiss Franc (CHF).

    Also, in regards to that eBay seller, updates on him are here:

    That's... quite a lot of custom work!

    Just bought one. Could not hold out any longer. This guy is just 1,000% win. DX9 outdid themselves here. Everything from the box art to the figure itself is just pure win. It would almost be a crime not to have this in your MP collection. :)

    Has anyone else noticed that Richthofen's red paint is a little bit lighter/almost dark pinkish instead of solid red?

    Only noticed the difference after I posed him together with some of my other red bots. I still think he's a handsome daredevil, though!

    Personally I'm going to be a bit more cognizant going forward when I see production sample pictures before figs release, especially when toy photographers so commonly apply filters that change the color. Look at pictures of him on these last couple pages even, he is deep brick red in some of them.

    In the toon PG was often (but not always) shown in a dark red color, something in between regular red (Prime) and bordeaux (Warpath). DX9 follows the toy color apparently.

    I'm fine with both. As long as it's not pink or burgundy, it's still Powerglide...

    Kudos to all toy photographers for taking amazing photos that help push the hobby further (and also help keep the forums alive) but nothing beats having the figures in hand. That's why i always prefer to get my bots from actual 3rd party specialty retail stores than ordering them online.

    My sentiments exactly. Richthofen still looks amazing in hand and on my shelf. He's still the best Powerglide figure so far!

    Yeah. I posted about that yesterday. His red is almost like a "faded" or not fully saturated red...

    Picked this guy up from TCP recently. He's awesome and I highly recommend grabbing one.

    That was literally what Ebay had before the price. The letter C. I did a google search, and tried to add it to my cart for a conversion, but no dice. Doesn't matter. I think it was from a scam account anyway.

    Huh, weird. What country were they from? That would likely have helped. Then again, it was probably China, so... I dunno.

    Without the url, people will just speculate. Though, most of my ebay dealings, a currency with "C" is Canadian, even if the seller is not from Canada.

    Good point. Yeah, if it's "C $" then it's Canadian Dollars on eBay. That was my initial thought but @Doro626 insisted it only had a "C". If that's the case, that changes things, but I'd assume Canadian Dollars is more likely.

    I tried to find it, but your example is exactly what it looked like.
