To be honest, I don’t really want to get it but because I have extra Cyclonus from the Classic/Universe three pack 2010 sitting in a plastic bag with the same left arms many years. I feel that he deserved a second chance for some upgrade since I got another one for free complete replacement. But due to the high US dollar exchange rate and the terrible global oil price, you got to think twice on your spending. Needless to say, 3rd party Transformers toys are freaking expensive these days.
My original plan was supposed to go for MM-02 Rear End alone and mixed with others. Since Robotkingdom no longer (two years?) carry both FansProject and Maketoys, you have to looked somewhere else. I only have two websites in mind previously, either Robotoy Base (formerly known as Chimungmung Toy Shop) or Upgrade Commander. The total price and shipping are definitely don’t come cheap. Yes, I know. Both countries shipping fee have increases. However, it doesn’t mean you got to suck it up. I am patience guy and it doesn’t matter to me losing any exclusive or limited toys in the collection. As long the price is right, I will pay.
After spending time looking deeper through the web in Asia, to my surprises discovering Maketoys happen to sell discounted Manga Mech series set for US$99.90 bundle at their own exclusive shop. I thought they only offer limited version at their exclusive shop. I didn’t imagine they would include other as well. Nonetheless, now it’s time for price comparison against the others.

Interesting isn’t it? I can’t believe myself saving so much from it! The offer has been ongoing for quite a while when I made my purchase first week of this month. You can see a ‘Half Decade Deal’ button below at their official website. So if you plan to get it, better hurry before the offer over.
