    I do want a Rager but $27 feels way to steep for me, it's almost double what the original went for.

    Just ordered mine a little bit ago. Once I slap some Reprolabels on him I think he'll look pretty sweet. I too hope that some day they make a larger one but for now I'm happy with this.

    I've been eying Rager on ebay for quite a while, so this cheaper and free shipping version is a must have. I do hope they upsize him later, but I went ahead and finally ordered Hench/UFO while I was on the site.

    Instant buy. This is a great repaint, and the packaging looks awesome. 27 shipped for a third party product is a deal.

    Yeah, I think they have milked the mold for sure, with the black and yellow Erector style versions... though, mind you, I have liked the various colors. It's just my wallet not liking it. Heh.

    If they kept putting them out in eHobby colors for each mold, I'd get them. On that note, if they put any/all of them out in Constructicon colors, I'd buy those too... especially Spooky version of Gears. I'd buy the crap outta that.

    Anyone else excited about the repaints? Excited to get the new characters, or sticking with one per mold?

    On that note, I ended up with and extra black Rager, unopened. PM me if you need one to complete your set. Would sell at cost plus shipping... same price as all the usual online stores.

    I was telling myself to wait for an upscale version since I'm sure Pipes is on their to-do list anyway, but I was a weak and went ahead and ordered. I'll probably feel like a sucker if they do release a larger version later, but for $27 it probably will be a satisfying purchase, at least for a while.

    You'll deserve a medal if you can find one for that now. This is as cheap as you'll get one.

    Yes, as a loser in an eBay bidding war for this guy that just ended two days ago (went for $75 for the "winner") I am really glad I can still pick him up at a way better price.

    What is the deal with the yellow and red "Shafter" repaint of this mold from the 2012 TfCon Canada? I'm reading that he is supposed to be G3 Erector. I'm not familiar with G3. At any rate, Shafter is my least favorite repaint of Rager.

    I'd grab one of these if someone would take my original Rager off my hands. PM me if you're interested.

    I've no idea where you got the "G3" from (G3 is the technical episode code for the Beast Wars show and has nothing to do with Erector).
    Erector is a micromaster character slash internet dick joke made popular by certain elements around the TFW boards, to be fair they pushed the joke so far it made the 2011 HOF awards a lot funnier, but then it hung around like a bad smell for a few more months and TFcon still found it funny in 2012.

    Nice little repaint though.

    wondering what happens if they scaled him up. I just like Hench and UFO.
