    It’s expensive for sure. I got my order in a while back and now he has raised it to 698. I have been looking forward to this one. I think he has the most reasonable deal amongst all Chinese retailers. Only thing is that someone in this thread said he is like dangerously tight. That is how my cell shade one is and I’ll be selling that one soon. Good luck in your decision brother

    Hey before you commit to him check out terryfsclub which I believe has it also. I would hunt around and see who has the best deal. Problem is right now everyone has hiked up their once good prices to its tough to tell. Bababobo is another place. Showz’ s price only went up a little to 698 from 689. His perfect constructor went up way too much. Good luck. Others chime in for help....

    Never owned one before either, but I love super detailed figures. Held off on buying the yellow version once I saw this one would be coming.

    Kind of wish I'd paid the $455 for the yellow now that the OG is going for $600 plus but this is my preferred color. I have a preorder at ShowZ just so I can think it over more, I can spare it now but might need the money at the time it releases. ShowZ lets you cancel pre-orders at any time.

    The only other thing I’ll add from buying from Showz is that he is excellent in sourcing TW parts. American retailers can’t match that.

    LOFL! Go with your gut. Want to display and transform all of them individually and have them in combined mode then go with the perfect. If you are content with keeping them in combined mode then the painted ones work because transforming them is hell with all the paint application. FYI.

    Yeah, same for me, I was just waiting for the closest thing I could get to the original green and purple so the perfect edition was exactly what I needed. But there's definitely other versions that look great

    The perfect is really nice. I’m just waiting for prices to adjust. Too expensive to buy from overseas.

    I finally made it through all the ratchet joints, in the arms, freed up the waist swivel and ab crunch, sanded down and lubed up where needed and got to a place I can start playing and photographing! Despite the effort needed to get this thing working from the getgo, the paint work and sculpting on this set is fantastic and feels worth my blood, sweat and tears, in the end. It's going to need maintenance along the way too but I'll consider it a labour of love.

    I got mine from Showz in about a 6 days. It looks fantastic, but I can attest to the comments others have made about how stiff everything is if you try to transform each bot. I got long haul transformed fairly easily, but the rest are almost glued to together (they aren't but it's just that stiff).

    So if you go this route, you're likely looking at just having him in combined mode forever.

    That’s the V2 right? If you don’t mind me asking, how much were you able to get him for?

    No kidding! It's mind-bottling!

    I might have to settle for that one (Ol' Green is $850+!!). Does it have an alternate face? I'm not big on the Homer face.

    Ordered the X back in December for €432 that's about $472 current rate. I would have never bought him for today's price, but I have to say, imho, this is the best devy one can get. Solid (maybe to solid), huge! and he's got the best astethics. At first I wanted to buy the Jinbao OSKO because it was a pretty cheap solution for getting a devy but as soon as I saw the X I knew I Had to have him.
