    i sold mine over year ago and it took me about a year to locate it...

    from what i have read...it was one of the last released figures...that along with the green recolored insecticon beetle in superlink are among the hardest to find figures...i kept my superlink insecticon...never got into the shadowhawk guy and ditched him along with razorbeak and buzzsaw botcon figures all at one time ....

    I lucked out and got one (and forest type Chromehorn) from amnebo (or whatever the site is called) when they got some extra stock in... I only paid reail price for them, and just paid a lot for shipping. Well worth it, considering how hard these guys are to find.

    Amenbo...I forgot about those guys. Wonder what happened to their site. It went down for maintenance and never re-opened (to my knowledge).

    I am pretty sure this fig is prolly the hardest to find superlink out there(not counting the LD's) and Ive seen way more superlink exclusives than I have of this little guy.

    so that's worth about $40 excluding commission and shipping?

    I am looking for one too and i found a deal on actoys for $15 :)  I guess 4 year of Chinese in college finally pays off......

    A toy's worth is only how much someone is willing to pay. It's a fair deal I'd say...but the toy isn't the easiest to track down.

    I remember the ridiculously roundabout way I ordered mine - from Archonia.com, a European import toy store, who imported it from Japan. Easily cost me $40-50, and this was maybe a year at the most after its original release!

    Although honestly, it's been so long since I originally assembled my quartet of recolred Terrorcons from Superlink, I can't remember exactly how I picked up all of them (except Desert Jaguar, was from a random eBayer in Michigan). Long since sold off them all, too.

    wow, guess I'm lucky. I've never had ordering problems with Archonia.com before. Their only problem is their inability to find suitable mailing boxes. Ever single order has gotten crushed.

    I never said I had a problem using them. It was just more expensive than I was used to at the time, because I didn't import much in those days.

    He is pretty darned hard to find. I got a Shadowhawk Cosmo type and a blue GF Ramble last year (from an awesome fellow TFW'er) in trade for a SWTF Death Star Vader, and was ecstatic.

    zealottoyou: That $15 deal is AMAZING. Do NOT pass it up!

    Well, I am very certain that Lord Vader is as much appreciated ;)

    got one, alittle pricey, but he was worth it. My problem is getting the jump on cool figures too late.
