    Makes me wish I'd bought the other three I saw in stores after buying mine. Damn I missed the boat, just like with Energon Ultra Magnus:(

    Somehow, I knew this guy would go up in price. I had a weird feeling when he was first released!

    This seller should thank me for not picking one up. If I had he would be worthless, that is the luck I have.

    Far too much money for a single toy, especially a slightly remolded repaint no less.

    I almost feel lucky that so far the only "Oh crap!" I have is missing out on Anime Astrotrain form ehobby. My Alt Swerve is still in the box and to think I bought him to make a Red Tracks!

    Yeah thats really nuts, i've been trying to get him for awhile now, but he's been far to costly and with shipping and the custom fees sometimes. I guess i better keep saving.

    Is he really worth that much, or was that just a bidwar gone bad?

    Ebay:
    Whew. Boy, I have one that I've disassembled for a custom, and my MISB I sold to a member here as part of a commission for a custom piece of artwork.

    I honestly never liked Swerve, and the only worthwhile piece of him was his remolded head. His mis-matched parts is as bad as Optimus Prime. Man, some of the Alternators are crap while others are close to art. There really isn't a middle ground.

    $120 is high, but he has been averaging about $80-90 on ebay.
