    seems over priced to me. that more than $1,000 each which is way more than I would pay for them.

    Well, you CAN make an offer. I think Anabolik1 would accept an offer of $2k but that's just my guess. Plus these are all MISP/MISB never been touched. All the other GOD sets that you see for sale have been opened and TFed.

    11 to be exact.

    Not exactly a get rich scam, as it's unlikely anyone will pay that price - more like a "lose money oversight" as he may be paying some heavy fees before lowering the price closer to what it should sell for or accepting an offer; more like $2000


    Good luck to the seller for getting the most he can out of it.

    Yes, $2000 seems closer to the right price to me as well.

    It was coming sooner or later...

    Yes, I am on the boards...no offense taken bro :thumb  You're just making conversation ;)  It's all good!

    Maybe a year or so back, but nowadays, no one would sell a complete set like mine (untouched, sealed) for $1000. HOWEVER, if they did, I would buy it...in all seriousness :thumbs2: 

    :lolol 

    :lolol  I thought it was reasonable for the fully padded, box-in-a-box treatment...I even bumped it off a few people. Yes, I am serious - not being smart or anything like that.

    :lolol  Nah...you're not drunk. The listing is really there :thumbs2: 

    Thanks bro but...well...you'll see...

    Nah bro...not a "GET RICH scheme"...I don't need money. It's not like that at all. Besides, I'm not that type of person, otherwise, I wouldn't have included the "Best Offer" part to that listing price...no worries though. I know you're just stating your opinion.

    Yep...you made some very valid points there...you think like me :thumbs2:  Thanks! ;) 

    Thanks bro but...

    Yeah...that sounds about right for the current market...

    It's not anabolik1's fault that the GOD set and the rest of the '07 BC exclusives are worth so much on the secondary market - you can all thank Hasblow for that. As well as the average secondary market buyer with more money than sense. That's why it's often called a "buyer's market." Sometimes people are willing and able to buy things for ridiculous amounts of money, and the built-in price people will often pay along with the demand that accompanies it decides these things, not sellers. If a seller sets a price up front, there's usually a sound reason, as this case certainly suggests. And after all, offers ARE accepted, so the technical estimated "worth" is not "fixed," in this case.

    And considering what some of the separate figures from the 2007 set (that have been opened AND transformed) alone fetch by themselves in some stand-alone auctions, and that everything included here is brand-new, MISP/MISB and untouched by anyone, not to mention you're getting EVERYTHING from the 2007 convention in one fell swoop, I'd say it's a pretty square deal straight up and down. I mean jeez people, I've seen some folks out there asking $200 for JUST AN EMPTY BOX from this set. Think about THAT. :lol

    Really? :sly: 

    I had such a hard time trying to peddle my extra G.O.D box. Furthermore, it came with the comic book, Collector's Pin & Certificate Of Authenticity.

    I guess I'm now holding a new record for being the Seller that took the LONGEST time to offload this. (Must have been 6 months at least!) :lol

    Yeah man, seriously. I LOL'd at that quite hard back when I saw it.

    Now I'm waiting to see just the FOAM by itself from the box set sell for about $50 - then I'll have seen it all. :lolol

    the value of these things is dictated entirely by what people are prepared to pay (based largely on speculation about what people will be prepared to pay for it in the future). There is no 'real' value associated with collectibles. It always makes me smile a little when people declare that a Transformer is worth $225.07 or something. So precise! Is that the Official Hasbro Secondary Market RRP? :D 

    ps. OP - it's worth six dollars, but i'll give you ten cause you seem like a nice chap.

    I hope Anabolik gets every penny. All the while I hope Hasbro and the Botcon crew will see this and realize that good, collector based exclusives will continue to be desireable. It's far to late for this year (crosses fingers they will be good) but there is always hope for next year.
