I, like andy, have this watched. In two minds whether to bid or not as it is a lot of money. He had one for sale for buy it now of 95 the other day, that I sent him an offer on. Whilst he was pondering my offer a notorious us based collector took the buy it now, then it reappraree for sale, so I emailed him. Turns out he had three! First one was to "test the Market" apparently. I don't really collect in bag or in bubble figures as a rule, as the lack of options to display them frustrated me, but I am tempted by this. What do folks think? Too pricey?

This is my understanding of the variations:

With Vehicles MOC/Bubble:

Z-Force Quarrel C/W Scarlet's Crossbow
Z-Force Steeler C/W Steeler's Accessories, Helmet is Red, Front of Visor is Red
The Enemy Red Laser C/W Cobra Commanders Pistol
SAS Stalker C/W Snake Eyes Accessories

With Vehicles MISB/Baggie:

SAS Hunter C/W No Accessories
SAS Blades C/W No Accessories
Z-Force Jammer No Camo C/W No Accessories
Z-Force Jammer Black Camo C/W No Accessories
Z-Force Gaucho Orange/Red Waistcoat C/W No Accessories
AF Dolphin C/W Grey Zap Acessories
AF Moondancer C/W Grey Short Fuse Acessories

End of the line Overstock MOC/Bubble:

Jammer with Green Camo C/W Stalker's Gun
Blades C/W Black Tripwire Accessories
Gaucho Dark Red Waistcoat C/W Gung-Ho Accessories, Bergen is Z-Force Green
SAS Hunter C/W Cobra Officer Gun
Red Jackal C/W Destro's Accessories

I think the origins of how, when and where the overstock figures came about is a mystery.

I've been looking at this to, theres one on ebay for £95 BIN. Tempting but alot of money, though a nice an not very often seen piece i suppose.

We should all chip in, and take it in turns to look after him...like the school rabbit.

I think £95 BIN is a dam good price, if I didn't already have him MOC I would've snapped him up!

Have these been widely available then?

Is "overstock" a fact or a speculation? Surely a lot more would be in circulation?

Does anyone know if the Blades/Tripwire Convention exclusive was packed in a similar fashion as what has been pictured? Is it defo the same Blades SAS paintjob or a black Tripwire?

ahhhhh with questions come more questions :)

All the convention figures came with blatant overstock, Blades came with an accessory of 1990 Salvo and 1990 Freefall. If I hadn't picked up this version of Blades I would definately be bidding for the one in the bubble.
