    Wow, that is a lot for the little blue monkey. Seems a little steep even if he is as rare as green Ramulus.

    Agreed. That does seem awfully high. More so when you consider how "meh" that mold is. Any other thoughts from the more serious collectors out there? Is $4000 actually a fair price? I'm having a hard time wrapping my mind around that number when I've seen the unreleased G2 MOSC Protectobots go for around $2500 a piece.

    I'd rather buy a used Honda CRX if I had 4 g's. Or some other 80's compact car.

    That is good to know. I thought I was going crazy for a second. When I clicked on the auction I expected to see somewhere in the $300-$500 starting bid range.

    That guy always jacks his shit up soo high that people that may have interest in the toy lose all hope when they see the price. This toy can start out at .01 and feasibly reach around 1k or more on a non bin auction. I think he doesnt really want to sell it.....maybe show it off and keep it at his house.


    This is the first time I have ever seen it on ebay also.

    Like his BW waspinator proto, still had a day or so left but he yanked the auction before the bidding even started.

    Damn, this toy gets no love at all. Nevermind that the first pics took online were about 3 months ago. Always the optimus minor was pretty cool fig and I rate this right up there with the unreleased G2 stuff, but o'well, to each his own.
