    That’s more than the official at release.

    The original was around $100-$200 depending where you bought him. And that's not counting the fact the only way to get him now is the aftermarket.
    This guy is anywhere from $15-$115 cheaper, so it will come down to the quality.

    Mines was $86 shipped, probably will have to pay a bit more next time because of taxes and shipping but this is pretty much the price of an official with a wk-2wk shipping.

    Yikes at the ShowZ price. That’s more than the official toy was at release.

    Considering what the Takara figures are selling for now I don't mind paying close to the original retail price. I'll wait for the reviews though

    I don't think the price is terrible considering the current price for the original.

    However, I'm concerned paying that much if the white parts start yellowing. After seeing yellowing on my IT MP Megatron and KO Ratchet, I'm very hesitant.

    Just got notice to pay him off at ShowZ. Hope he turns out to be just as good a KO as Megatron was.

    The colors looks a lot different in that video and the ape chest is extremely glossy. Hope we get comparison shots soon

    I wish this was MP-38. Finding one of those complete for a decent price is tough.

    Pulled the trigger because for HasTak "worldwide" means US/CAN/UK/JP so at least for me it is always difficult to find them for a fair price (resellers ask at least 3x MSRP).

    Ironically, this isn't all that affordable. It's the same as the original’s price. (retail anyway)

    It is affordable unless you have a time machine. If you could still buy the retail version this wouldnt exist.

    Oh it would exist, and would be cheaper. Tigatron and dinobot both got KO’s while still in stock.

    the price would be more palatable if it had improvements like most KOs.
