    You got the 1/1 Error piece! Congrats!!!

    Here's mine. So stoked on this figure. Possibly one of the nicest figures to come out in a long time. The detail and paint work is flawless.

    I personally hope this is the only colorway for this sculpt because it is just perfect. I am sure there will be other variants and hand paints but this should be a stand alone piece... having said that, id be curious to see what other colors would look like on this guy!

    i am seriously starting to get frustrated that i cant figure out these secret base releases.

    do you guys just check the website all the time? i couldnt even manage to find that guy on the medicom blog, maybe its just not in the cards for me to own secret base stuffs. :oops:

    Looking for it there would be as futile as it was frustrating!

    Medicom Blog & Shop, but they din't ship outside Japan and besides that, Snotty sold out early. But you can still have fun on YJP, some of them are pretty close to the original retail price! ;)

    sweet, thanks for helping a n00b out.

    my bother is stationed in japan. if i can get him on board to buy me stuff from YJ and other retailers (provided, he can figure it out and has time to do so), i think it will make things somewhat easier for me. :D

    And he can use APO/FPO shipping which is really inexpensive.

    How much originally? $140? How does a retail store mark it up another 100+?

    You hit the nail on the head.

    Word on the street is that they fell off the back of a truck...so the markup is INSANE!

    Do I need the text to be purple?

    the original price at hyperstoic event was 200.00 plus tax.

    i dont see what the issue is, get in on the ground floor before these see the KvP price surge that is imminent.

    they're probably just breaking even on the release esp with shipping from Japan.

    the point? you should go enjoy one before they're gone and at dick-head prices.

    a friend of mine who is an Usugrow RI fan bought one and its his first pushead toy. i'd say he went strong for his first.

    Thank you. I was asking not stating. I thought I had read originally it was $140. If it was $200 then a 20% mark-up isn't so bad. And it helps me to know if the toy is in or out of my price range.

    Thanks for the clarification. I was wondering on the quality of the vinyl/plastic.

    It feels like the bronze kvp. Has good weight to it even with the narrow body. I didn't even realize it was made in China but it doesn't matter to me. It is a well made toy.

    If you can find it then get it. You won't be disappointed if you like an uncompromising attention to detail.

    ^ It actually is, and the TT price is very fair. So if you are in the US, stop complaining and GO GET ONE! If you're non-US, try YJ, as it will spare you the ridiculous USPS int. shipping costs of ~$65.- . :roll:
    I got mine for about $225.- all incl. (EMS shipping, tax,... )! :)
