    Hey guys,
    So, out of curiousity,
    How much does THS-02 Convoy go for in Japan? Like, at the store?
    Anyone know?

    I got mine from an online shop in Japan for 4390yen. That's about US$40, I think. At retail it could be cheaper though.

    I ended up with this guy by accident. He just happened to be in one of my pre-order boxes that sat here at home for the past few weeks before I flew back. Opened it up and there he was. Not entirely sure what to do with him though...



    Sorry, I know that has nothing to do with the original post. I'm just trying to decide what to do with this guy. :confused:

    That was meant to be read with a preschool teacher's voice :redface2: 

    Anyway, open him! It's a fun figure.

    While totally aware that I'm contributing to the thread derailing, I recommend that you keep THS-02! He's an awesome figure!!

    ...Just don't transform him ;)

    I've transformed my THS02 at least a half-dozen times, with no problems at all :)  my only advice is be gentle with the flipout part of the fore-arms, they pop off easily, BUT they're made to do so, its just two lil dots holding that on so it goes on just as easily.

    I think he means don't transform him cause the truck mode sucks...

    I really like him. I hope they make a Megatron for him to fight though. :)  He is one of those toys that would look nice on a desk. Small, but very cool.

    I live in Japan. I purchased a THS-02 for 3,990 yen. That's about $37 U.S.

    Thanks

    Thanks for the info Quiktake.
    No wonder it's even more expensive here. :( 
    I'm determined to get him somewhere though. My wife 'approved' it for our anniversary, so now it's just a matter of finding the best deal I guess.
    Thanks again guys.

    I traded my Star Convoy for one, I look forward to messing with him. That and he fits into my downsizing mode of have fewer and smaller things to take with me when I move.
