    I know the guy who made it produced and sold extras but it wasn't a mass produced item in the least, very very few numbers. You cant get it anymore.

    Yeah the short answer is you can't. Takara actually allowed the guy to make them but put a limit on the number of pieces (60 I think?). I know Redline has one though.

    the japanese guys at botcon 2005 were selling them for 80 bucks apiece, they have went as high as 225 on ebay. Honestly, I didnt think the quality was all that great in person. There were ALOT of imperfections that you cant really see in the pics. They had 6 of them for sale at the beginning, and as far as I know they left with 6 because I didnt see any sell during the 3 days I was there.

    meh, I think youd be disappointed if you spent that much on it, the ones I saw had poor paint aps, the plastic looked bad in some spots, dont get me wrong, it was a marvel in engineering, and awesome for a fan to make,

    but as it was a semi official takara product, It still wasnt up to par, other than being able to saying you have a limited item, the quality wasn't there. I woulda paid 35 bucks at the most for it.

    The maker sold all his already. He made about 30 initially to sell it at a japanese con and then received permission from Takara to make another 10 or so to sell at botcon 2005. Your only hope is if the very few people who has them are willing to sell them. I've only seen it once on ebay a few months back and it went for over $200. The same guy also made the gun pieces for WST Megatron. He sold some at this year's botcon for $50 I think.
