The Masterpiece Cyclone is Two Hundred Dollars.


It is also available for preorder at Robotech.com.

Considering the fact that I haven't bothered to shell out the less-than-half-that-price it would cost to snap up a MegaHouse Yellow/Lancer Mospeada figure + bike, which I so greatly desire, I don't think I'll be buying one of these suckers. (Also considering I'm still unemployed, let's make that doubly unlikely.)

  • That's not a bad price, considering the Japanese version of it is about $40 more, plus presumably higher shipping costs.

  • I noticed at least one website claiming the "standard price" is $220, though they, too, were ACTUALLY selling it for $200. Still, you're right, domestic shipping's gonna be a lot better.

    I guess it isn't bad, but I've got a feeling that something that's THAT size at THAT price isn't going to be a whole lot of fun to play with. I'm thinking it's gonna be a little too fiddly. Besides that, personally, I'm not 200-dollars-fond of the Cyclones. I'm much more 50-dollars to 60-dollars-fond of the Cyclones, at most. The $80 price point the earlier mold was going for was pushing it, as far as I was concerned.

    Of course, again, the whole not-having-a-job thing does color my perceptions a certain way ...

  • lmao I'm unemployed at the moment too :|
    but 200 for that? oh geeze... I don't think it's worth it
    but maybe that's just me, I'm cheap
