    Okay, need one of these. Too bad I'm not going :(  would anyone who is going be willing to trade one for a FP Code? or just pick one up for me? I cannot miss out on an IDW accurate version.

    That was back in 2012. They allowed 3rd party last year and there's no ban memo for this year.

    I'm going to assume that's a rhetorical post. ;)

    It's a very nice paint job, but I'm happy with the original. I just don't like having a battle-damaged figure standing amongst the rest of my figures, who are battle-damage free.

    This is just absolutely the sweetest thing I've ever seen, and one of the best reasons to possibly go to BotCon.

    Can you go for a single day?

    And that answers my question on how come 3rd party stuff is allowed to be sold at Botcon and at that insane quantities too. Thanks Daimchoc!

    Wish i was going. I've been to every botcon that appeared at Pasadena but no dice this year. Have fun guys!

    That's the only real problem with a battle-damaged figure... it needs company. Lots of battle-damaged company.

    That is a pretty awesome paintjob. Shame I'll not get the chance to get this, but I'll make do with the general release which is still pretty awesome.

    It should. WAR Gauntlet is basically the retail version, painted up and customized.

    Sweet. The other bot in the pic with WAR Gauntlet doesn't have yellow, so I wasn't sure. Thanks for the info.
