    That much? Surprising, given Generations Thundercracker being to common now, and Henkei's awful QC.

    Goes to show people will pay more just because it's Japanese.

    Well i may be wrong on the price.

    Completionism and seekers go together. Not to mention the fact that if you buy all three Henkei seekers, they'll have uniform markings, as opposed to the varying schemes used on the Hasbro versions.

    Say what you will about the loving or hating the chrome, but we arnt just buying them because they are Japanese. The three seekers in that line have consistent uniform paint schemes, where between Classics, Universe, and Generations, the Hasbro releases are just a hodge-podge. Plus especially for Starscream, I really prefer the Henkei color choices.

    As far as price, $50-$60 doesnt seem too terribly far off, though I havent really priced one in about 3 months.
