    So I found my first test shot TF, by accident.

    a local store here in Vancouver, where I am vacationing at my gf's mom's house, had Botcon 08 Prime in a display case along with shattered glass jetfire/starscream.

    Starscream was priced at 95 bucks. prime had no price. clerk wouldnt sell it cause it was "damage" according to her boss, who she had to call.

    I go back on boxing day to pick up the KO G1 Clear prime they had for only $100. I asked the guy, who was helping me, about the Botcon prime. He said it was missing the leg panel but would be willing to let it go for $40!!!!!

    jumped on it like a fat kid on a cupcake. took it home and found "NOT FOR SALE" printed on the front bumper. Oh yeah I dont own shattered glass prime til now hehe.

    Huh. With our dollar and theirs being almost equal (or at least, closer than what it used to be), going up for some toy hunting was kind of out of the question (gas prices not helping either). I might have to take a weekend and head up, though.

    I used to go to Richmond a couple times a year with some friends to do some toy/gundam hunting. But we stopped about three or four years ago. Might have to go get something planned again. Likely make a trip or two during the summer (night market!).

    I'm not a fan of any of this "Shattered Glass" nonsense (Like Hasbro or botcon or whomever needed ANOTHER excuse to sell repaints) but it looks like you got a pretty good deal.

    You could easily replace that missing panel with one from another prime, but I daresay the missing part actually makes him a little scarier...more wartorn battle-veteran, to go along with the cracked windshield and all the bare metal gouges!

    I really like the mold. I have classic, henkei, nemesis, and UM. I still need crystal convoy. And if im lucky I might bite the bullet and get my first LD as gold henkei.

    The missing panel actually fits in with the damaged look. Nice find, dude.
