Ive only got Quint - 02, at $80 off ebay, i wasnt too impressed with the size. But the detail is top quality. I would of liked better colours, but the paint job is fine. The battery operated, "floating on lighning" effect needs your imagination to work properly.
I originally wanted to create the judgement scene with hotrod and cup, sharkticons and the quintessons, but I would only snatch the remainding quit-01, quint-03 and quint-04 if they came my way. So Im not exactly hunting them down. Although they are a limited realese I believe
So all in all, I would recommend if you can get it cheap, grab it! But not if they are overpriced.

I have a Quint-01 I got from KC99(thanks again) I cant recommend this toy enough, wish I had 4 more. Just about everyone that has seen mine in person wants one.

I will try not to be lazy and take some pics for you.

this toy is great, the little tenacles can move side-to-side and can be extended or shorten, has a red light-up function and its really detailed, highly recommended, heres a picture with Henkei/classics for size reference

I think that BBTS were going to have them at Botcon for dirt cheap ($20 US each) but it seems as though they're already sold out.

I highly recommend it jay. Ive got 3 of these. Absolutely wonderful.


BBTS does put them out cheaply at times, that is if your

a) willing to wait, wait, wait
b) dont mind their expensive delivery fees.

Also (as in my case) they sometimes have em on sale especially if the packaging was broken but the figure itself is intact and complete.

Got these 3 for US$20 each as opposed to regular price of US$45. just bought a Quint Scientist as well but still have to tick the "deliver now" button as Ive yet to pile up my loot to save on postage.

He's freaking awesome but I only have 1 as opposed to liege's planetful.

I'm up for a BBTS group order while they're cheap if you are Jd.

EDIT: F*** it. just checked BBTS and the Prosecutor and Scientist I wanted at $20 USD each are sold out. They were in stock just a few days ago.

Dunno, they don't do much for me. Only one I saw was the tentacled one that Borgeman had which while had a great sculpt was way too fragile for me which is the deal breaker for me.

The Quint-01 is pretty tough, I drop mine all the time and he is all good. Not sure about other models though.
