    He's probably talking about the going rate today since there are not many places with it in stock so it's mostly eBay sellers which are $40+.

    TFsource has it for 29.99 but if you really want one, I'll bet you could find one in the trade threads for cheaper.

    BBTS has it in stock for the ridiculous price of $60. Yet they have the Rage of Hercules for half that price.

    To be fair, the pink one was always around that price everywhere. It was a exclusive when released.

    Joints are looser than Leo but I think that's a good thing

    As someone who owns both, do you think the quality is better?

    The paint job is just as good but the color scheme is simpler

    The looser joints mean easier posing and more play

    It feels a little bit lighter? My mind could be playing tricks on me

    Claws are still metal just like the katanas on Leo

    You may draw your own conclusions from my observations

    Edit: the tail whip segments are also looser which I personally like better

    Heres an idea to differentiate Xerxes from Leonidas just a little bit more: switch the shoulder parts so that the head is on the left shoulder instead of the right. That should work without issue.... I think.

    Awesome photos and review Ender! I'm still on the fence with this guy. I ADORE the design, but I never picked up Leonidas because I was worried about breakages and such. I was hoping Xerxes would be better, but it seems he still has his problems, which is such a shame. If he were more solid I would be ordering him without a second thought.

    Well, at least it sounds like the joint issues have been worked out. I don't care about the other stuff as long as he is nice and stable in bot mode. What's his back look like when he has the "cleaner" look with the lion head on his back?

    minus the upper body(shoulders, bot head) not really transforming this is the best Lion bot transformer, I do hope they continue with the zoids theme and do big convoy with some elephander infulence
