    Interesting...though if they were going to go back to book-style, I wish they would've randomly restarted the Collection line for this, even if it was just for Sixshot. At least it'd be a liiiiiittle bit cheaper.

    Looks nice though, I will admit.

    Yes, the box is a bit more complicated than an Encore box, the Chrome and metallic paint add to the cost.....

    ...but i'm starting to think Takara have lost the run of themselves.


    If you can get the original for 60, i'd say jump on it right now.

    Packaging does look really sharp!! And he was such an impressive figure back in the days, if you had this guy, you were the super cool kid at school haha! But with the 3rd party (imo) UPGRADED version coming from MMC I can't justify it's pricing ;[ But for fans of G1 aesthetics I'm sure this is great news!! I just enjoy being able to display my figz in Dynamic Poses. Would pick this up if it was priced LOWER.

    Looks really nice, but I can't throw $180+ at it. Gonna have to pass, unfortunately.

    I think I would bite if I have nothing else to buy and can get it for under $150, but it is not a priority right now, as cool as it is.

    hmmmm.... My love for the toy and character will let me suck up the high price but I just dont see how it could cost so much unless theirs something they have not told us yet

    the only changes I can see are...
    Chrome Guns
    chrome back wings (maybe they do look lighter then normal)
    maybe a little on the legs on the nose cone area

    But this could be an old toy in new packing for pre-visual work I dunno

    Mm...

    Packaging is better than what I'd imagined it out to be.

    But the pricing is... *speechless* :(

    It's the same box art the original had for those wondering.

    Yeah, I noticed that too. For the price though I'd have rather either all new artwork or at least having the full-colour artwork.
