Transformers Vintage Japanese Headmaster heads…and SHUFFLER FINALLY!

Mid last year, i managed to acquire these Japanese Headmasters through my good friend.
But there were only 5 MIB headmasters missing the rare shuffler.
Price-wise for Shuffler, it is sometimes said that the price of shuffler can exceed the price of the other 5 headmasters combined!
Nevertheless, here they are…in MIB goodness.

Lione…i've done a review and comparison to the KO Lione. (Here)
The lion transforms into...
quite a nice face/head…i think Lione is the most good looking of the lot.





For the next few months to close to a year, i have been trying to find Shuffler. Going through TF groups and ebay, Yahoo Japan….and another important factor is that there are the KOs out there, which makes the search even more difficult. Found a couple of MIB Shufflers on YHJ but the prices are just crazy! went way about how much i paid for the 5 MIB heads. Just can't bring myself to throw big numbers for much a small figure. (But it would be different if they are the White Japanese Headamster heads, which are even more difficult to find)
Guess my patience eventfully paid off and i managed to find a loose piece. and at a really good price. The next thing is its authenticity…pretty straight forward for these heads, stamping = original; no stamping = KO.
So, now…..The Elusive SHUFFLER!!!

Another happy day for a collector….
