    Okay I'm having trouble finding Henkei Hound within a reasonable price, most places have him way overpriced or sold out. Is there a place I can get him for less than $30 (w/shipping combined)?

    Does anyone know if Henkeis get reproduced more?

    Or should I just settle with the Universe one?

    TFSource still has him, in my opinion he's way worth it.

    the other challenge was to try and get Henkei Cyclonus, but... what's the release date for Henkei Hot Shot?

    Also no place I could get Henkei Hound without paying $10 shipping?

    Depends on where you're located. In the US, from BBTS, I think it costs like 6 USD to ship him on top of the 24.99 asking price.

    Managed to get one a few weeks back, and it cost about 31 USD to ship him with two more henkei. Never once did I regret it.

    Henkei Hound is definitely worth it. But he does seem a little scarce - not sure why, guess he's more popular than a lot of the others!

    I'll probably never own him. I barely order off the internetz except maybe once a year and I can't FIND him in stock anywhere online.

    He is way worth it, the dlat dark green looks so good on the mould, the hasbro one looks bad in comparison

    I just got mine from TF Source this week. I had him shipped with E-hobby Sunstorm and shipping for both was only $7.50 priority mail. I ordered on Monday and they arrived Thursday. He does seem to be out of stock at many online retailers so if you are thinking about getting one you should get it done.

    toyarena.com has him pretty cheap and if you haggle with tom you MIGHT get it alittle lower than the RRP price on the website (I.E ask for a damaged card version or something)

    Had to get mine from TFSource as well, since HLJ ran out of Henkei Hounds. Awesome figure. I can't find Mirage and Hot Rod anywhere, though.

    Sidecutter is the man I always shop at Captured Prey. I plan on picking up an extra Hot Rod for the future TFC Rodimus Trailer.
