    After a year and a half of searching and saving... I finally have it! I asked a friend of mine from Hong Kong to acquire it for me at whew!... $190. No surprise its that expensive but its definitely worth the waith and worth every penny of it.
    Now, I have a few more TF Takara collection to go in order to complete 00-21.

    I hope for your sake that the upcoming Prime Encore reissue won't be a TFC #0.
    But for MY sake, I hope it is because I really want one of them!

    Thanks! But I had it pre-ordered too! By the way, on digital-toys listings for TF Encore if says "New mold used for some parts of the figure". What gives?

    I wouldn't be surprised if they remolded his head the same way they have done to that upcoming white iPod Prime thingy.

    Very nice. I waited forever on him, too, and my fiance got me him last year for C-Mas. (Yes, she rocks)

    Awesome piece indeed. :thumb

    They remolded the head on that white Prime who's trailer is an iPod dock, the one that was announced at the same time as MP3 Soundwave.

    Didn't it come out less than two years after New Year's Convoy? I passed on this because it was the same as that, but with an ax.

    Crazy appreciation, I thought the MSRP was around $60.

    Pretty much, yeah. It also came with a binder to put the pages that came with the other TFC reissues in (not that I would have removed them anyway, but there you go)
    Crazy nut true. I've been outbid on this before, when my maximum bid was well over £100. For some reason they seem to go for shitloads.

    Geez, I should have bought spares of the ones I own, just in case I break something. It'll be an arm and leg to replace my TFC Bumblebee, for example.

    i got mine for £40 off ebay, but the description failed to mention it had its stickers applied and that the pages in the front had been torn out. i guess thats why it went for £40.

    congrats, btw.
