    Hey guys just wanting to show off half of one of my grails I picked up over the weekend. I remember passing on him at a toy show back in early ninties for $35/40.00 (ended up getting Deathsarus). 21 years and $300 later I finally have him would have had the other half too if it weren't for another guy off the boards lol. Anyhow here come the pics:

    Nice! Bone white and a near immaculate inner tray, and an outer box without too much wear, nice one! You don't see ones as good as that come along every day.

    One thing people have advised me of, the sword blade drops out of the foam fairly easily, so you may wish to store it in the slot on the V-Star booster section instead so it doesn't get lost.

    Loving the Fort Max and Scorponok too, that's an excellent set to have.

    Yeah, I saw a sealed one at a show the other day, I didn't have the guts to ask how much he wanted.

    Why do you have to refer to me as "another guy"? As far as I see it, you snaked me out of this guy! I bought Victory Leo first and you didn't even give me a chance to make an offer on Star Saber, LOL. I'm sure we'll both complete our sets before too long!

    Now bring it over so we can combine the damn things!

    I dunno why but it always make me happy whenever I see someone scores a Star Saber. :D 

    Nowadays, Star Saber seemed to be the more difficult piece to find as compared to Victory Leo...
