    He's exclusive to the Japanese C3xHobby Convention we just saw photos from in the other thread.

    Note that while the regular line is named "Henkei! Henkei!" ("Transformation! Transformation!"), Wildrider changes that into "Gentei! Gentei!" ("Limited Edition! Limited Edition!").

    Also note that the toy is officially named "Stuntron Wildrider", the second Takara toy (after "Cybertron Perceptor" from the Transformers Collection reissue line) to have a faction/sub-group prefix in front of his name (possibly for trademark reasons).

    As much as I want that I'd be better off getting a BT Mirage for that price instead.

    Hmm. That's crazy. Even the crystal convoy is more worthwhile than the gentei stuntron wildrider and that is only 150 now on ebay....

    the price hasn't been set. the seller is trying to capture the time value of the auction. some one will be over anxious and purchase it for that price, a few others will pay even more but when ebay is flooded with them then we will see the true price. we need to be patient.

    Word.

    Even though I want this guy quite a bit I'd rather pay that for BT-18 Clear Rijie

    If he comes down to say $50 I'd pay in a sec but that's probably a pipe dream

    Anyone hear how many of these guys were made? I think there were only 1,000 Crystal Convoy made for those trying to compare production numbers and price.
