    I've already sold him to some of the Boardies here & I'm doing USD $65 shipped from Singapore. MISB sealed specimens. :)

    Are you looking to add the FE specifically, or just get a Bulkhead for your Prime collection?? I wouldn't say it's cheap, but that's about what the going rate is now a days. Got mine from the Phillipines for $35, thanks to a buddy that brought it back with him after a trip over there. I'll tell you this though, it's tough to spend the extra $40 on a figure when the PRID Voyager is out and isn't really that bad in comparison. If you would have asked this question before he was out, I would have said go with the FE for $60, but I'd really have to think about it now...

    Yes FE Bulkhead is totally worth $60. That's a little cheaper than I paid for mine from bbts.

    It worth that much but it can be cheaper if you look for it.

    Incorrect statement is incorrect. While RiD Bulky might be fine on its own merit, when compared to FE Bulky it fails miserably.

    I bought my FE one for $60 and haven't regretted it once.

    FE Bulkhead is VERY worth it at 60. I got mine at 75 shipped and I would easily do it again if asked. Between the RID and the FE one, there's just no contest. I'd prefer the FE one any day, and I wouldn't settle for anything less.

    If there isn't anything else you want moar that you can get with that money & if you're not keen on waiting however long until a reissue/remold/repaint/whatever comes out, then go for it.


    ... and yeah, I'm definitely kicking myself for not picking one up now when I could've. Not a big deal either way, but eh. :)

    That's not half bad. It's about what I paid after shipping from RK.

    It sucks that he wasn't widely available, but he's a HELL of a figure.

    I bought FE Bulkhead for $65 and I have zero regrets about it. It’s hard to appreciate just how amazing he is until you have him in hand and have transformed him. I would say go for it.

    I completely agree that if money is no object, $60 is a fine price for the FE. And I probably should have actually answered the original question of if the FE is worth $60, which I believe it is. But some people may be more cost conscious than others. That's why I asked the question about whether the OP was looking for an FE or just a Bulkhead to fill out the characters of Prime. For $40 I can get three Vehicons (at retail of course), two more voyager figures, or put that money towards Masterpiece Soundwave. I was lucky enough to get an FE, but I can tell you right now that my son will be getting the PRID version for his shelf. I guess I was just pointing out the fact that there are options with pros and cons. But if the end goal is the best possible Bulkhead, then I say go for the FE. You won't regret it!!

    Cheap, no. Worth it, yes. I paid $65 shipped and absolutely love it.
