    $1000K?? :lol 

    I would like to think that the interest in owning him is the lowest as compared to his G1 & Operation Combination reincarnations. :)

    Because Baldigus only came out 12 years ago, and Bruticus is around 27. Battle Gaia was a European-exclusive G1 that came out long before the age of internet imports, and is incredibly hard to find, let alone buy.

    Baldigus was widely available from several sources, so it's saturated in the market compared to other versions of that mold. Isn't it harder to get the urban camo?

    Ye, $1k would be the lower end for complete MIB Battle Gaia, anything less and it's considered a steal...Bruticus is the most reissued/retooled G1 combiner, that's your main reason it's so cheap.

    This. There is little reason to compare the availability of Baldigus with Battle Gaia: big difference in year of release, different ease of availability and big difference in production numbers (Baldigus was produced by both Sonokong in Korea and by Takara).
    A couple of years ago, around the time I was still able to buy a cheap Sonokong Baldigus on eBay (for about $35), I also looked for the Walmart exclusive Urban Camo version of Ruination. Even then that version was hard to find and pretty expensive.

    Next time, buy it before alerting a public forum with over 50,000 members.
