    Oh, I plan to. I would've gone with Cell if his used price had dropped due to people buying this one and getting rid of their old one as they're known to do 'round these parts. Oddly enough, used prices have climbed. Don't get it. lol

    Used Cells (heh) went up in price because over here and in Chinese fan communities everyone raised a ruckus over the grey and orange on Pumpkin being too dark. For me that oversaturated color scheme may or may not be as screen accurate as Cell, but it would absolutely rock on lighted displays.

    This is what I was thinking before placing my order. I was dead set on getting him but not right away as I had a layout for what I was buying. $299 is a great price and when I started seeing ShowZ having more and more shipping problems, bigger items started receiving price increases to cover better shipping options I assume, so I jumped him to the head of the line to avoid that. Hes been shipped and almost here so I'm anxiously awaiting his arrival. It's good to see that they've kept his price the same, but for how long!

    Just a warning to all of you! I made the mistake of leaving Cell as a ball on my bed while I figured out his rings and he rolled onto the floor and this happened! Thankfully doesn't really impact the look as its on the back of his leg (or bottom of planet) but definitely need to be careful with it!

    Hell, the ONLY safe place to transform him is on a bed. Even being gentle on the table, the weight of him causes those little details to snap off easily.

    I suppose I should have said "floor" instead.

    No, no, I understood you. It was the landing to the floor that caused the breakage. I just don't know of any other place which is safer.

    I cannot lie this made me laugh! Thankfully I don't plan on selling this figure, so I'm not too fussed about the damage, as I say its hidden. Just need to learn to be more careful especially with expensive toys!

    You can use a hairdryer to warm the bent piece and it should relax back into place and will help with the stress marks too.

    I bet the red and green version comes next with a limited edition Santa hat

    Wait… isn’t that pretty much the same rule for anything that’s not made of rubber?

    I could drop him all day long, my room has one and a half inch padded foam flooring in place, I have fallen on it myself and felt literally nothing (Its padded because I rescue disabled cats)
