    ... I think I can do that for $35.

    I notice it mentions they are "available at the robotkingdom booth at botcon." :sly2: 

    Ah, missed the read more part:
    Subject to Botcon rules on 3rd parties, this convention exclusive PE-10X might be selling as a form of a voucher, and trade outside Botcon.

    Scouting Force had a limit of 1 last year. This'll probably be the same.

    On the flip side, he only sold 200 at Botcon but made 500 total, the other going to other conventions and a handful made it to the website.

    I don't think this should be considered in violation of the third party rule. Unlike some figures where the resemblance to Hasbro's characters is obvious, this looks nothing like Ratbat. It's just a robot bat. Did Ratbat ever turn into a giant spear or sword? No? Then suck it, Botcon.

    I could have gone for a version that was colored more like Ratbat, since the first version wasn't really, but this is very "meh".

    And yeah, this really doesn't seem to step on Hasbro's toes much at all.

    Doesn't hold a lot of appeal to me, honestly. If someone wants one though, I'm fine with giving mine up and picking it up at the show for ya.

    Hm. I already have the birdjet and humanoid-gun not-cassette molds from ultimate form, but no Kingbat, so I'll go for this.

    Honestly, I'd get it, but, I don't think I have a place for a 100 dollar deluxe scale sword in my collection.

    No offense to anyone is intended btw...

    But I'm damned sure that next year BotCon will probably amend its "No 3rd Party" rule to extend to vouchers, assuming more vendors like RK wind up selling a good number of them.

    Still... neat repaint.

    No need for them to amend it...their rules already would cover vouchers just fine, since they're clearly still selling the product by substitution. They may or may not have an issue with this particular product, but if they do, they can stop it entirely, at least on the show floow.
