    Another re-release?

    Makes sense though, considering the re-release of Magnus and Nemesis via Takara.

    Despite its re-releases, I still can't get myself to pull the trigger on this.

    Always tempted, never tempted enough to buy it.

    It's way better than the superion set (which I think looks fairly bad in hand) but completely changes the character of the figure. I guess I just like the old voyager prime mould more than CC.

    If they turn out something that matches the United version, i'll bite.

    I'm too cheap to pay the going rate for the Classics one, and the mismatch would annoy me.

    It wouldn't.

    I think people forget that almost all of the figure is covered up from the Armor outside of the Door Kibble and thighs.

    Besides the silver on the thighs and white calves poking through the boots, it wouldn't look any different.

    I love all the miraculous extra stock the e-tailers keep getting though :lol . I just wish I had waited on my Shadow Commander because I bought it for $130 after the price hike :eek:

    And in trailer mode Henkei Magnus hubcaps are silver as opposed to the bronze.

    I'm considering this for the Henkei Magnus I have on order. Time to do a little research.

    Then again, its probably better to just not and put that money towards Green Giant.

    theres a possibility I would have been interested at 80 or 90, but not for 130.

    I can't see how this armor set could possibly be worth more than a full figure like Assaulter who is much larger than steel core and has diecast.

    Also I'd have to find a figure to use with the armor which would raise the overall price point to something well beyond my comfort zone.

    Agreed on the price. I think bbts is just tacking on their own luxury tax for the figure just because theres so many fp fanatics that will pay that price
