    I really dont want to buy a used one, but ebay has sealed in the box ranging from 130 to about 160. Am I crazy to purchase this ?

    Yes on both counts. Shouldn't cost more than 60-70 USD MAX before shipping, either version.

    Well I am unable to find any sealed, I been looking for awhile. I was told to go to toyarena.com but they have been sold out for sometime. Any idea where I may possibly get one ?

    its a bit much for my blood but given the popularity and the age of the toy I can see why people ask for that much*

    *does not mean they will ever sell for that price

    Nemesis251 has an MISB Rampage in his BST for way less than that.

    I wouldn't get Rampage though... Yes, Rampage is cool, but his transformation is basic level (he's basically an ultra-sized flip/back-pack former) and thanks to the giant claws he can't stand up.

    Ebay:
    WOW, Glad I brought my VS Rampage set a few years ago. It was going for 80 dollars back then.

    As for Rampage, he is worth the money, regardless of the version you get. Personally, I wrote a review on this in 2010, I prefer the Takara version

    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/transformers-feedback/346023-bw-rampage-takara-metals-vs-hasbro-tm.html

    Just love that big X! Hope this helps with the decision and DON'T PAY 130+ for the Hasbro version. That is just crazy

    There's been almost 10 that have sold recently on eBay for $70-$100, so with a little patience it shouldn't be hard to get one cheaper than what sellers are asking.

    In fact, there's this one currently at $64 shipped: Beast Wars Transmetals Rampage MISB | eBay

    Thanks boys for the help.

    Im going to keep my eye peeled bigtime. The only bitch is ok lets say I get it for 70-90+15 shipping, being in Canada Im going to get screwed by the duty from U.S. Sellers.. The auction I seen for 125 was in Canada with free shipping (so 125 total). it may work out to be almost the same. I had rampage when it came out, and I was like why did I buy this ? so I returned it, thinking I wouldnt buy anymore transformers, 15 years later Im kicking myself.

    Anyone ever noticed Carlton dances 'exactly' like Lewie Spence from Pineapple Dance Studios (as seen on shows like Harry Hill's TV Burp)?

    [Sorry that's probably far to UK specific]

    I've even seen Shokract under $79.99 from time to time. [P.s. The Metals one is better]
