    It's been reissued a few times and in a few different colors so if you don't have one by now then I guess you're SOL for getting it at a reasonable price. I'll say this as a HUGE lover of this figure: I don't think it's worth more than $180. Hell even $180 is really REALLY pushing it.

    So is UT dead or? I haven’t been keeping up since reports of Nero being their last. This gives me hope of a Peru Kill reissue.

    Well it’s good to see there’s still some life left in the company. I’ve been really impressed with the movie stuff. People have been overly pessimistic about the future of 3P as of late and have overblown most of it. Hard to discern what is actually “newsworthy” anymore.

    Yeah, everything becomes “3P is dead” now. TW boss gone for two days and there was a thread about TW being dead.

    Sure, but Unique Toys explicitly and specifically stated that Nero is their last toy, and they're closing up shop after that. Maybe that was a lie/marketing, maybe that was truth then but circumstances changed, but in any case a company announcing that they're closing is preeeetty different from some PR guy not responding to messages during the weekend and the forums spinning up an entire multi-part mythology about how the company is dead.

    No new designs being made, but they'll likely do reissues. There are KOs of Peru Kill available.

    ToyWorld's Knight Prime is good except the truck, looks like someone stepped on it. I would get Battled Damaged Challenger if the truck mode is clean, which I think its possible cause of how it transforms.

    I did some Googling and I couldn't find a decent comparison between the regular R-02 release and the new R-02D battle damaged repaint. Does anyone have side by side comparison pictures or videos?
    I'm thinking about buying R-03 and I'm trying to decide which R-02 to get to go with him. I've seen the marketing pics for the Battle Damaged. Does anyone know if it will actually look like that for production? Is there any history with past figures not looking like the prototype images? Thank you!

    The battle damaged version hasn’t been released yet, so no pictures of it yet unfortunately.

    Got mine today and the SAME stuff broke off just like yours. I pushed it a little bit so the pin goes in all the way and they snapped. The clip on side pieces do not tab in with the normal chest piece it seems. Tried all I can and they will not peg on. The gun and the foot helpers are pretty nice.

    Oh no that really sucks :(  I was able to install mine anyways since only half broke but the replacement should be much stronger.

    He said I can glue the chest. I think he means I can still glue the broken pieces back on.
    Before they broke I was having trouble removing the 2nd main pin. The first one came off real easy but the second one wouldn't budge. Used some shock jelly and that didn't help.
