    Ebay:
    Let's just say its not worth the $300.00 price tag that eBay wants... I'm looking for 1 as well but I'm not taking a pension loan out to get him.

    I've seen that one on Ebay, 3 offers have been declined. I think I'll try to look for it at local hobby stores first before I try Ebay. :)

    I sold one on ebay for $150 and was happy with what I got.

    I really dont feel it is worth more!

    I haven't looked into it since I'm keeping mine, but $150 sounds reasonable enough.

    He was available at a specialty shop that wanted approximately USD $120 for him but I simply refuse to pay that kind of $$$.

    They were asking for USD $60 just the year before! :drunk

    $100 shipped is the maximum I'd be willing to pay.

    I paid like $55 for mine when it came out and I wasn't super impressed with it then. It is a nice repaint but not $300 nice.

    I got mine last year from a Dutch Ebay Seller. He also came with a custom head...

    Yeah, that's why I passed up on him. Even at that price he was overpriced IMO

    Black Sheep - the custom head looks decent!

    Yeah, that head looks swelling enough! :thumbs2: 

    If only we had that design by default then I would see a stronger initiative to go out & buy him.

    *Looks at the Bio/Tech Spec Card, then the toy/figure*

    The quote: "Actual product may vary from pics" REALLY applies here. :(

    It appears you have quite a dust build up on Fort Max there.

    ^ Thanks Guys. I was preparing to be underwhelmed by the head (Ebay pictures don't always tell the full story) but now that I have it in hand, it adds a tonne of character to the figure (it's 1000% better than that repainted Kup head). & during transformation, it fits like a glove - no need to remove it at all.

    As for all that dust build-up... :eek:
