    Hey everyone,

    I'm hunting this guy down fiercely and i was wondering how much I should expect to pay for him... BTW i'm talking about the recent reissue, not the original. Please help me out.

    Thank you.

    PS: If you've got a complete one that you want to sell, let me know.

    I seem to remember him in the $200-$250 range.

    Yeah, it probably won't be cheap.

    Check out these Auctions. One guy wants 594 dollars. He probably won't get that but jump on one of these. I wanted one a couple of months ago but they never showed up on ebay! Only parts did and a Junker trailer sold for 75 bucks. GOOD LUCK! I settled for the Fansproject DIA commander (which is AWESOME)

    There is a brand new minty fresh one at my local import shop for $275. But unless you are in or near Seattle, WA it is probably out of your reach.

    I won an auction for a sealed one for $350-something about a year ago (I probably paid too much but being a diaclone reissue - how could I say no? :) ).

    I was just wondering, which E-hobby Magnus goes for more - the Diaclone reissue or the shining-urine repaint? Honestly, Why would you want that shining-urine repaint? :lol  Unless you're a completist...

    I only paid $85 for mine when he was pretty new, but now he goes for at least 3 to 4 (or more) times that much.

    He must have been released before I got back into collecting, cause I never remember seeing him for less than $150. And I got back into collecting in 2002.

    I got mine off of eBay, probably in 2001 or so.

    Shining goes for more; a lower production run, 800 verses 1500 I think. I actually prefer that one to the Diaclone style one.

    Also, to be pedantic, neither were e-Hobby exclusives, they were exclusives for two different Japanese stores. It says on the boxes, but it's way too much effort for me to look.
