Henkei Thundercracker Limited to 9,999 Pieces *Updated*

Toy Hobby Market and Ganbo have updated the product pages for Henkei! Henkei! Transformers Skywarp and Thundercracker, respectively, with stock images and are now open for pre-orders.

If you are having problems getting the Thundercracker page to load, it is probably because they are getting hammered. This is most likely due to Ganbo's announcement that Thundercracker will have a limited production run of 2,000 pieces and it looks like customers can order up to 10 at once.

$139.99 for both! Ummm, I don't won't both...nobody over hear (US) wants both.

I do. :P

I think he looks LOADS better than Targetwarp, and since I'm gonna have a Henkei Starscream and a Henkei Thundercracker.. I'd like to have the 3rd one as well, since they've all got the same look to them.

Besides, having 2 Starscreams, 2 Thundercrackers and only 1 Skywarp would be silly :tflaugh

I kinda hope that they are packed individually. At least that way if I'm stuck with 'ol warpy I can keep him sealed. I'd go the kb route myself, but my artistic ability with a paint brush stopped progressing in kindergarten. I wonder what the packaging will look like?

aaahhhHHH...BBTS disappointed me SO much! $139.99 for both! Ummm, I don't won't both...nobody over hear (US) wants both. We just want Thundercracker! Well...I'll definitely be kitbashing NOW! :P

Oh, and I'll be keeping my Classics Skywarp. :D

I see in my magic ball the future...and I see Classics Skywarp dropping inmensly in price due to all the people who bought the Henkei TC/SW set selling their classic version :tflaugh.

Crap, looks like BBTS is only selling both TC and SW together. Ah well, Sept will just have to be an expensive month for me. Anyone interested in the SW? I've already got the one that came in the UM 2-pack.

Hence probably the reason why they're being sold together and not individually. They'd probably get stuck with so many Skywarps they'd be lucky if they could give them away.

Does anyone know if these are even going to be sold as individuals or if it's a 2 pack?

The encores are going to be a 2 pack so perhaps these are just following that lead.

Good to see the update to "9,999" figures was correct! There might still be a chance to get one...that is if you can find anyone to buy it over there for you & ship it! Does anyone know how true this is that Toy Hobby won't ship to the US? There was an earlier post that said he signed up, then found out they wouldn't ship to US...

My understanding is this is true, neither store selling the exclusive Seeker (or SkyRoboWhatever for Goki ;) ) will ship to the US, so you'll still have to go through a middleman, which is why the cost seems to be (from what I've seen) in the $50-80 ballpark for each.

It's not limited to 9,999 pieces

it just saids that because the system can only display up to 9,999.

You can order unlimited amount

Wait...it is limited up to 10 per order. As for the "9,999"...it's gotta be limited to a particular number of these items manufactured; otherwise, they wouldn't be called "limited editions".

I mean, that's great if they want to make over 10,000 of these...but then there's nothing really 'limited' about them, is it?

Great, my chances of getting one are improving exponentially! Now getting one at an AFFORDABLE price is another story... :)

Well any figure that's not produced in the same numbers as a general release can say they are limited. Limited doesn't necessarily imply that it's going to be all that rare or hard to find. In this case, I think the term only really applies to being limited in the sense of where you can get it and not so much about the number of them available.

I'd like to get a TC, but if the price doesn't come down a bit then I'll just pass.

I think it's funny how the prices on these here so far are pretty much right on (or more) than what they would have cost individually as botcon exclusives. Even funnier that the botcon exclusives were produced in FAR less numbers than what these will apparently be produced in.

Now it's one thing if this was the price for them when only a couple of thousand of each will be made, but now that that's apparently not the case then I think some people need to start lowering their asking prices a bit! Especially BBTS!!!
