    Ah, but if only Stepper were retooled so that Nightstick could fit on his spoiler and/or his shoulder.

    Works for me. Stepper and Maketoys' Battle Tanker will probably hit BBTS around the same time.

    I like it, but I don't love it enough to fork out $150 or whatever he's gonna cost. Here's hopin CHMS make a version. I'm lookin forward to Stepper here a bit more than their G1 recolor of Botcon Breakdown.

    Get the right sources and you'd pay less (I'm paying like $55 for mine).

    Very nice! If you or anyone else could drop some links towards the $55 purchase I'm sure myself and a few others would be grateful. I'd (happily) pay $55 for that thing. Now where is Artfire..?

    its around 100$ for 2 Steppers if you live in Japan and bought that generations magazine with the mailing form. My uncle is getting 4 of them for me sent to his house.

    wow, so does anyone want to share with me their wisdom. I've love to get this figure but that BBTS price tag is killer.

    Unless you have some out-of-country connection, it's gonna cost you. This figure is especially problematic because to get it directly, you'd need to buy a book and mail in for this.

    BBTS' price is not actually terrible for this, when you consider you'd have to buy the book, ~$37; the figure, ~$59; and likely a 15% commissioning fee, ~$9. Total that's $105, plus approximately $20 for airmail shipping, for a total of ~$125. It's worth mentioning I was quoted 2 figures for ~$110.

    Unless you really want the book, you'll probably save a lot of trouble by ordering domestically, unless you can find it at one of the usual online overseas retailers for cheaper.

    Indeed. It's ~ 100$ to get two of them directly... so yea...

    But it's more or less as process indicated... unless they're somehow able to score these without doing all that was mentioned above.

    Regardless of either... damn nice deco... not paying 100+ for it. =/

    Jeeze, it's about time. I was starting to wonder if they were going to manage it this year or not. Would be nice if Million did a little more to keep people updated.

    Regarding the price, I've got them at $110, but I absolutely understand that's still too high for some people to be comfortable. There's just not much I can do about that, since if you're not in Japan, you have the aforementioned costs, plus payment fees too. If the Dollar:Yen ratio wasn't lousy it would make the cost much more reasonable.

    Is this the same figure BBTS had on pre-order a few months ago for something like $200?

    Yah......but.....I'll still bite :)  Why? Because with priority mail shipping to my house.....its STILL cheaper to buy from you than the price before shipping from all the other stores I've checked into.

    Just did :D
