    He's a good figure. Just small for his character. Too bad he wasn't leader size. He is quite small in robot mode. He does look good though.

    Great animated figure, not sure about the price. I think 50-65 USD is good, not sure the conversion rate is. I'm glad I picked him up though, great alt mode and a nice beefy figure.

    I got him for about the same price at Botcon. He's pretty neat.

    Ebay:
    50 GBP= 79 USD.
    honestly, that is a bit much for my taste.

    but, i will say, the figure is great and if you are having trouble finding him for cheaper prices, get it over with and just enjoy the toy.

    sometimes you have to bite the bullet.

    i love my Blackout. You should be happy with it.

    Not the best price, but he isn't getting any cheaper! Great figure.

    Indeed, not the cheapest but about going rate I think. Glad I got mine for £35 back in t'day. You'll love him :)

    Blackout is nifty, aside from a couple peevy flaws that bug me.

    * bigass disc weapon that stores nowhere except on the end of the arm.

    * G1-level shoulder articulation.

    Is a very good figure. Blackout's hands looks menacing.
    The only drawback is the size... like Lugnut, Blackout deserves a Leader class.

    A little High but given he was a Japan exclusive, its likely a fair price. I got mine for $50 last year
