    I didnt know there was reissued combiners? Squawkbox and Slamdance?



    If they are original and MOSC the price is probably too good to be true?

    Look legit. For one, I don't think the combiner cassettes have been counterfeited as of yet, and two they have old 1980's price stickers on them. I don't think any of the counterfeiters have gone through the trouble of attaching old price stickers to the fakes.

    Echoing what others have said, all those figures haven't been bootlegged (yet) and they have other signs indicating they're legitimate vintage figures.

    Add my voice to the "They're legit" chorus. I think those sets are the only ones not already bootlegged, he's probably trying to get what he can for them before bootlegs show up and start eating away at the market.

    They haven't been bootlegged but they have seen Chinese releases in the early 90's. I would only really question the Squalktalk and Beastbox as possible Chinese releases due to the possible removal of the Chinese sticker.

    Well, i am interested in combiners but im looking for loose squawkbox an slamdance.

    So even the opening price was more than i was willing to go.

    I was sniped on three of these damned auctions tonight. He overpriced the Slugfest/Overkill, otherwise I would have bid on it too.
