    Seems outrageously priced if there isn't some metal. On the fence.

    In practicality, it is quite difficult to make a metal figure that is transparent.

    It's about the same price as regular BTs, and even though there's no metal, considering it's limited production exclusive, not too bad.

    I dunno, when Kirk and Scotty went back in time to save the whales, Scotty gave a dude the formula for transparent aluminum. That dude may have worked for Takara. Who am I to say?

    It's exclusive, it's a BT, it's Takara. Nuff said.

    p.s. - it's plastic

    5775yen (US$48)
    Production run depends on the numbers of preorders ehobby received. Number of preorders + some extra, I hear.

    Replace "die-cast" with "rubber" and you're right.
