    Too much for the Hasbro version IMO but the Henkei deco is well worth it.

    What Morph said. Sorely underrated figure and the Henkei deco is beautiful.

    New or used? Did you find this in-store or are you buying online?

    Feel like you could do better price wise, but he is SO worth ownng, even the US version.

    Double Quoted for Double Truth!

    He is a cool figure, but definitely not worth the price retail asks.

    That being said I am not sure you would ever get it any cheaper, just be sure you know what you are getting into. The figure takes 5 seconds to transform and has a jet screwed to his back. If you are okay with that, then go for it.

    Get the Darkwing repaint instead. Mine has Venska's upgrades. Looks awesome.

    Was thinking ebay, the trade forums here, etc.

    It's such a love-hate mold, I bet you could get a loose one cheaper if you were patient.

    I sure wouldn't feel good selling mine for $45 to a fellow fan!

    Not that I'm selling ;)

    Fixed :p 

    I gots me Henkei Silverbolt, Universe Darkwing (Venksta's upgrade kit is in the post) and Universe Skyfall, for which I already have Venksta's kit. I actually love the mold, despite the criticism it gets. It doesn't hurt that the repaints are all very different from one another (especially if you can get hold of the new heads).

    My Silverbolt, Skyjack, Darkwing, AND Hydra completely agree :) 

    It's a great mold, and once you take the bastard apart to part-swap, you'll learn, he's not nearly as simple a plane-on-the-back toy as it seems at first!

    Guys, he's not located in the US of A, the land of ridiculously cheap Transformers. $28 is a steal for an Ultra-class figure in Serbia. Going prices for DOTM Deluxes are $35, DOTM Voyagers are $55, and DOTM Leaders are $100. If Silverbolt were to be released here today, he'd likely go for about $75.

    If you buy a used Silverbolt online, expect to pay $25 or so just for international shipping.

    geez, in that case jump on it like a fat kid on cake!

    also, why did he need to ask us on such a deal? When I see deals in the wild I jump or lose my chance. Hopefully its still there!
