    Yeah at that price, it's a no brainer and great value. At 320 or 330 it's a bit of a stretch. At 400, it's completely bonkers.

    ~$250 like you say is a no brainer, agreed. Having now held the beast and transformed it, witnessed it’s engineering to confirm there was no black magic involved, I’d personally do $320 or 330. $400 yeah it should be upscaled. But I’m really happy with the size it is. *Amazing* figure and a childhood dream!

    I’m sure you’ll love it. The way he compacts down into a sphere from the bot mode you unpackage really is something.

    You are not kidding. Every once in a while I ask myself, "Hmmm TB, should you really have spent $250 on basically a big action figure? Was that a smart decision?"
    Then I look over at:

    and it fills me with glee.
    Totally worth it.

    I just ended up ordering both. Have cell in person and still want Haslab's. I think both can co-exist in a collection.

    After debating back and forth on whether I needed him or not and having the Takara Unicorn one from a few years ago, I finally caved and ordered him from ShowZ. I know I should've ordered when the last run happened but was still on the fence back then. Yay late tax!

    It’s cheaper than the first release tho... there’s no late tax here.

    The price everyone keeps referencing only existed for a day or so only on Showz. They always make preorders cheaper, that one was just way cheaper than others.

    This product goes quite well with the Fanstoys products.

    Oh my gosh, that's hilarious. :lol 

    Does someone have the re-release in hand? Very happy with my first version, but still curious to see if anything was altered.

    At $400 or less, I think this figure is worth it. If it came out an initial $400 price tag I'm sure plenty of peeps would have ordered.

    Yeah I probably would have kept the box if it looked like that.
