Played with this once as kid at my cousin's place, had loads of fun with it, and was pretty sad when I'd to leave his place as this really was and still is, a fun toy. It doesn't matter now, thanks to this reissue. Keep the reissues coming, TakaraTomy!

    i am happy for you.

  1. neoconvoy says:

    so you can get a metroplex for me ? that will also make you happy...

    it's sad that Metroplex appeared quite useless (at least from what i can recall) in the cartoon...i not sure how they portray it in the comics...

    and i was thinking with all these reissues, it is good for the collectors, but how are they buying in with kids these days ? does the play value and design appeal to them ?

    my nephew was asking me about Sixshot the other day, and i was quite happy that he knew about sixshot..how i need to hunt for a reasonable price for xmas...

    no if I get metroplex for you, I will be broke for one year.

    yah metroplex was quite cock in the cartoon. I only remember him in the opening credits, transforming to fight Trypticon.

    I don't think kids care for these reissues, as they have been spoilt by video games first, then toys with much more articulation and better sculpts than what we had in the 80s.

    Sixshot is potentially a S$150 - 200 damage these days right? I am also looking forward to my HT Batmobile Xmas present from you.

    so cheap now and you cant afford...i am disappointed lah...i think i may have to start charging interests...with all those financial institutions falling apart nowadays...

    and to debut in the movie, it was also utterly useless...i rem the eps after the movie the other TFs had to replace its damaged transforming cog...so it does goes to show size doesn't matter...

    i am not sure, tho i m not expecting it to be so expensive...but the live action movie did increase the prices....

    yes, after you buy for me an unused MIB (no need MISB) C-111 Fortress Maximus...or just pray TakaraTomy reissues one...then we talk abt the Batmobile...

    @Anonymous: Great deal to be had if the prices are in rupiahs, not so much if in yuans.

    I think you might find some eager buyers at retardednoobs.com.
