But it doesnt walk. Good deal? All parts no box pretty mint
Go for it. But check why it doesn't walk. Just old batteries or acid damage?
Sounds like a good deal to me.
If performing repair work is possible, I'd say it's an incredible deal.
It's vintage, how often are you gonna walk it across the living room anyway? LOL
Go for it, you can always pick another body pretty cheap if it bothers you down the road. It would cost you more than that to get all the accessories anyway.
I'll take payment for my advice in the form of Full Tilt's little gun j/k
The walking gimmick on G1 toys is highly overrated IMO; they plod along slowly and you only end up picking them up and switching them off again wondering why you bothered. I'd say $75 for a complete Trypticon is a very good price, especially if the stickers are in good shape. And if they aren't, the Reprolabels set for him is excellent; I used it on my own.
Even if he doesn't walk, if he comes with all the parts he's worth $75 easily. If you bought a perfectly functional Trypticon that walked but came with NOTHING, you'd spend that $75 and more completing him.
I'll go against the other comments here and say "think carefully". It depends on what sort of G1 collector you are; if you can live with having a broken toy, go for it. But if it's going to eat away at you (like it would me!) I'd possibly reconsider.
Still, $75 is a GOOD price, so you can't really lose - if you change your mind, you could probably sell it on for the same price you paid for it.
go for it, if you really really WANT a walking one, you can by that, and a gigastorm STILL for cheaper then a trypticon normally is
go for it!
It's worth it for the accessories alone. Finding a spare body that walks, but doesn't have any parts, is going to be a heck of a lot easier (and cheaper) than trying to assemble all the parts if you buy an incomplete one that has the walking gimmick intact.
Good deal. Especially if you get the gun for the little car robot.
I paid $115 for two trypticons one walking with all the parts and one non walking with no parts. Very odd sale.
Grab it. If it not walking bothers you later you can always keep an eye out for a walking one and then sell the non-walking one, while keeping the accessories of the second one you nabbed didn't have any/all of them, and sell your non-walking one on to recoup some of the cash you paid for the walking one.
Does that make sense? Damn, I really can't string together a sentence today.
ALL the parts? Jump on that!
I sold a Trypticon with full parts, walking, instructions + accesories and box included,
I didn't know better back then.
Sounds like a good deal to me. He's a very nice piece, and the parts are hard to come by. Especially Full-Tilt's gun.
go for it, nothing to loose there
its a fair price id go for it
This is a good deal. Get it.
