    Hello guys, someone is offering me a Superlink Galvatron G and Nightscream R figures.

    For those who don't know the figures they are one of the last pieces that were sold for Superlink in Japan. Galvatron is the purple one and Nightscream is the recolor "G1 Starscream type" of normal Nightscream. Both come with an extra recolored energon weapon.

    They ask $60 for Galvatron G and $40 for Nihgtscream R, is that OK? What do you think?

    50 and 20 are more reasonable prices.

    $60 for a sealed SL Galvatron isn't too bad. I've got one I won on Y!JPN Auctions coming and I think after fees and such it set me back around $55-60.

    Nightscream R for $40? To me at least that sounds a bit high...but then again since he was released at the end of the line he does seem a bit harder to find.

    I'd say the price for Galvatron G is reasonable, but I'm not so sure about Nightscream R. Though, it's not too bad.

    I paid $75 for a MISB Galvatron G and $30 for a MISB Nightscream R. I guess it really depends on how much you want the figures. Personally, I'd go for it myself.

    it seems the galvatron general is pretty hard to find on ebay, but yes on yahoo jpn, they can be found for about 50-60 shipped. its one hell of a nice figure, and the paint apps are better than the energon.

    Hello guys, thanks for the info. I really want that figure, I forgot to explain that Galvatron G was $60, no shipping. Is that OK? What do you think? I am sure now that Nightscream is a bit high.

    You could get Nightscream a little cheaper.

    Would go for it before they go higher. This might be a better deal than the rest in the future

    Believe me when I say this, his price is going to go up. With the lack of him being on ebay, and his badass paint apps, and he is somewhatt limited, its all a recipe for his price jump, and it will happen. plus, just look at him with his brother-$60 is a great deal for this fig.

    Don't know about Nightscream, but it's a great price for Galvatron G. Got one myself from Rynkia, and after fees and shipping it went over $150.
