    Good luck.

    Syd makes my wallet cry sometimes. This wasn't one of those times, but it happens.

    I esteem this mold greatly... such that it truly is among my favourite TF figures, Prime or otherwise.

    Some of that comes from the fact that it's a 20-year-old mold that still holds up to current standards... gotta respect that.

    But it's not just a historical appreciation. It's true that the "styling" of the mold is boxy and oldschool ("clunky" as you put it), but he actually has a surprising range of articulation... honestly better than many new figures! He has a fully swiveling waist for example... for no other reason than because it's cool (it isn't a by-product of his transformation). As a result of this thread, I was messing with my Black Convoy, and I got some really nice poses.

    If you must, wait till you find one for a good price (I got my Black Convoy for around $30 shipped, and my Scourge (cab only) in a lot of figures dirt cheap!)... but definitely, it's worth having! :)

    You won't be sorry! If this makes you feel better, I have just paid $65+ for my CR Black Convoy. I opted for importing from Japan to save on shipping as I'm getting other stuff from there.

    Glad my sig helped you getting one of the coolest black Prime figures. You could have seen this sig of mine instead, and you'd have never been tempted, eh. So it was meant to be :D

    As soon as I can find one in my price range, brah. :D 

    After I attempt to get Black Convoy this afternoon, there's some Mugenbine stuff I'd like to track down... Bazooka comes after that.

    Looks like I was outbid on mine, but my dad said he'd pay ~$25 if I needed him to. I think I'll take him up on his offer. Glad I could help you get yours.

    EDIT: I'm in the club now. My dad and I are splitting the bill, so I ended up paying $20, he's paying $20. Not bad, IMO.

    I'd have gone for Scourge instead of Black Convoy, but I was a little concerned with the 0 seller feedback. It was still a great deal (probably a better deal than mine)

    I'm glad I got one just before this thread started. I have a feeling they are about to become rare with all the people buying them now.
