    Yeah, that doesn't look dubious at all.

    Some parts appear to be missing.

    I do believe that's been up for a while. I know shortly after BotCon I saw someone had put an unassembled Sideswipe for at least 500. This looks like it.

    If memory serves, this (or one like it) was listed in igears store for $300, then yanked or sold, then relisted again for $600, and again yanked or sold. There's another thread around here about that.

    It's all there, 9 sprues in the auction photo, 9 sprues with my G2 Sideswipe kit at BotCon 2010. All the parts are there.

    Wow! Its still there after all this while?? :lol 

    They put out a cheaper set before this & it got sold. Then they started asking for USD $600 for the 2nd set (which is this one here)

    I'm surprised that no one had bitten the bait, especially when the going rate is already USD $500 a couple of months back.

    Can we safely put it down as "The hype is over finally?" :p

    I almost bit on a $500 one, but I came to my senses. I would rather just paint a sideswipe for that kind of coin. I would bite at $300 though.

    Way too much for what would amount to me making a Deep Cover and using the red head to make Generations Red Alert accurate to the toon.

    USD $300 (assembled kits) is easily market rate these days. But an On-sprue at USD $300 sounds too good to be true. I mean, people were paying USD $500 for those on Botcon earlier.

    D@mn, I can't sit still thinking about what you'd said. That On-sprue, its no longer there, even as we're speaking now right? :drool: 

    And to answer your question: I've a few LD pieces but I'm not in the LD group basically because nobody "invited" me? :lol

    I have a set of the custom stickers for G2 Sideswipe if anyone wants to paint a black SS and throw on some stickers.
