    I second that. But you know what else might be nice? A bonus head, a la Demolition Crue! ;) 

    Anyway, really looking forward to seeing this guy and his bro's hit retail! I hope the regular editions come out soon...

    I'd still be able to get him either way :lol 

    But yeah, that'd be 'fairer', for lack of a better term, i guess

    I may or may not pick one up while I'm there. While I don't doubt $30 worth of work went into custom painting one of these, I know I'll still need to get the standard version to fit in with the rest of my collection. I'm not sure if I really need two.

    Guess we'll see how my willpower fares at Botcon next week. :)

    Wooo! Thanks for posting those. That looks so good.
    I'm not going to BotCon so I'll have to see if I can find a sugardaddy.

    Damn. The realism that would portray would be seriously NUTS.

    Without knowing price ... yes, I would be interested in a battle damaged/weathered Feral Rex.

    LOL. Sorry, I had my browser opened up and had the images already there. I just forgot to run the submit, until much much later.

    I would settle for just being able to finally own the toy at all. Between the original implosion and the delays I am pretty sure people at Botcon will own it before I do, and I pre-ordered Day 1 (both times!).

    Looks great!

    Is this paint job factory-applied? Or is it done by a customizer?

    Thanks in advance!

    Now if MechIdeas' pricing would *also* set a new trend for 3rd Parties... I'd more than welcome this.

    Really, the releases they've done so far are the best prices out there for 3rd Parties... and this Botcon exclusive is *still* cheaper than a number of 3rd Party deluxes now.

    That aside... they did a *great* job on the WAR paint job. I wouldn't be surprised if they get bugged to make the Demo Crue again in this setup... and other 3rd Party Wreckers get a similar treatment soon.

    All made in a factory, but the paint job and bullet holes are actually customized by the factory workers, from what I was told. One of the reasons its more expensive than the regular version.
