    Muther Fucker, I just bought one off of eBay for $825.00. I swear this always happens, I wait a while to get it, and when I do finally get it, a week or so later someone finds it cheaper. FUCK!!

    Excellent pics as always! I've been watching Victory for the past week for the first time. I liked it just fine until Disc 3 Form Liokaiser, then I f'ing loved it!

    Although I get excited about and love all the MP's I get, this is one of the few that doesn't have any of that little bit of 'checking off a box' feel. It's just pure fun and joy.

    Oh hey, look at that - TC knocked it out of the park, again! :rock 

    Bumblebee is tied for my second favorite MP, right along with Sideswipe, Prowl, Bluestreak, Soundwave, Rumble, Frenzy, Buzzsaw, and Laserbeak. No. 1 is Optimus. Duh :D  As you say, Dean, Bumblebee's a dream come true, but so's the vast majority of this line.

    Except maybe the humans. Even the exo-suit just doesn't look like it had the same love and care put into it as most of the line - the lack of paint on the helmet is the first thing I noticed. DAMN THESE EYES!!! And the inconsistency - going from the style of Spike and Daniel in MP-22, to Raoul with Tracks - is enough to drive a consistency nerd insane. Fortunately, the humans in the line have never been my selling point, so they don't bother me too much.

    Now, bring on Star Saber!

    Have fun, gang!

    $500? For a legit BAPE Convoy? Considering the going rate, that's not that bad. Way better than paying the $1200 I've been seeing.

    Man, I've been fiddling with Star Saber for a while now and it's really an amazing figure! Yuki-san really expressed how he loved the G1 character and turned it into one hell of a beast!

    I hope you guys get your figures soon so you can appreciate Star Saber the same way I am now.

    PS. I'm uploading pics from my phone and I don't know how to rotate pics. :-D

    Good review. I'm surprised by how badly Star Saber holds the sword. You'd think they would make a better handle for it.
