Thank you for the kind words.

I feal your pain on the funds issue. Zarquan knows there are figures I would love to have that are a wee bit out of my comfort range. I got lucky with my Star Convoy. This was a few years ago, so I don't recall exactly what I paid, but since he was used I got him for a good price, then, as mentioned in the review, since he was missing the ramps for base mode the seller gave me a partial refund on top of that. Ebay: so many rip offs, the occasional great deal.

As far as the Roller goes, sometimes when I review older figures, there's a part of me that thinks that I'm probably not saying much that people don't already know quite well. Glad to hear that there's at least one case where I was able to provide new insight to someone! :)
