    Sorry to spam the toy section with one of these threads,
    but I am just completely overjoyed to have finally received this piece!
    Only 7 items left on my Japanese G1 checklist!
    It is truly a Grand day for my collection!

    Got it from Anabolik1 here on the boards.
    I'm sorry, but I do not feel comfortable talking about the price of this particular piece.

    Yes that is one beautiful piece of TF plastic. And to be able to be the person that opens it up should be well worth whatever price you paid. Congrats and enjoy your grail!

    what is wrong with ebay? I have been searching for "grand maximus" in ebay.com but I seriously never see this listing before!

    There is another MISB one in ebay for USD 4500 MISB

    Ebay:
    Are you going to apply the stickers? I recently bought a minty Victory Leo and have been trying to decide. On the one hand it looks brand new and on the other he's screaming for some details that only the stickers can bring out :D

    Thanks for the kind words man :) 

    Thank you :) 

    Yup, as soon as I get my G1 Bot-room set up, all of my unused samples will get their stickers applied before they go up on display :)
