I guess RK is only coming in a few dollars more expensive than local supplier.

RK shipping gets a lot more reasonable the more you add to the order. Good time to stack all the upcoming MPs for the next few months together if you have the patience.

Unfortunately none of the BAPEs, EVA etc has a certificate. Would be nice though, my wife's Disney dolls are individually numbered.
From the TV series called Toy Hunter, I recall the gold Energon Rodimus is limited to 500 or 1000 and only available through a Transformers club raffle. Elsewhere I discovered there was only one gold Cybertron Metroplex ever made and also available through a club raffle.

Could it be the quality of the gold paint that determines how collectable they are?

Not unless you got in on toybotimportz first pre order like I did which was only $172. Xin at saviers toys is usually pretty close in price too but he canít give a price till the product is shipped from his supplier.

Oh I did as well, but I didn't want to brag about that until AFTER it was delivered.

It's an odd two-tone colour & not in a good way. I'd hope it would grow on me but alas no. I quite like the chrome-look painted sections in isolation BUT combined with the unpainted poo-yellow parts it looks hideous.

The Golden Lagoon Optimus is now out (in Japan from TakaraTomyMall, and Asia), and images of the toy, box and contents can be seen here.
The others Golden Lagoon toys (Starscream and Autobot 3-pack) come out a little later.
