After missing out on many auctions in early 2010, some of which were from Australian sellers when I was there, and another close miss when I was in Japan in February 2011, finally....... D-310: Blue Bacchus MIB, whew!
In a funny sort of way, I managed to get this piece due to Botch emailing Bodhar2000 and myself in the same email, during his awesome adventures in Japan (more awesome then Bill & Teds adventures I tell ya! Go read 'em - Botch in Tokyo Part 1; Part 2; and The Loot).
So, back to the email. By the by, I asked Bodhar2000 whether he happened to have a MIB Blue Bacchus for sale. 2 days later, he came back and said, 'yes, I do have one for sale'. Whoa. I was over the moon.
So, here it is, Blue Bacchus, sourced from the very land that produced it itself...
D-310: Blue Bacchus MIB
Box = C7.5 (flaw on back)
Toy = C8 (I'd say its C9.5, but there is a peg broken off in the back)
Paperworks = complete
Out of box. I have been staring and staring at this guy. I think he has one of the best looking Pretender shells among the "Crossformers"/ Mega Pretenders.
Close up of head sculpt. There's just something about the Blue Bacchus head-sculpt and to me is what makes him a clear winner among the Crossformers/ Mega Pretenders. Simply the best head-sculpt among the lot. Menacing, yet mysterious.
