how much was yours and are you able to help me out by telling me some good websites that i may find him cause i have been looking every where on the internet for him.

hi again, sorry to hear that you are having trouble locating this :( I bought mine when it was first released and I understand that this is a rare item (all the Dragon Soldat series items are). I don't know of any particular store that might still have them because they are in such demand.

ok i have found one on ebay i am going to try to win it for at least a hundred somewhere around there. how much did you buy yurs for cause i want to see if i am getting a good deal

@lex Gen X 1:6 Hardcore said...

hi, that price range sounds good because that was about the price of the item when it came out. I expect the price to go up nearer the end of bidding as they always do so you gotta monitor closely. Good Luck :)
