    he is in good condition and is only missing his sword :

    I paid $100 for him and it is worth noting part of the cost of allthe figures i purchased today was absorbed by the $135 in store value i got for my Lord of the rings figures, purchase was at my local vintage toy shop

    Considering the sword is only 3.00.

    thanks they had a nearly complete swoop in excellent condition for $160 there as well but i could not afford both so i had to choose and as the swoop almost looked too good i went with Grimlock also at first i thought i just had 2 missiles for him but i discovered the 3rd jammed in his compartment for a diaclone driver I had to do a bit of surgery but i got it out

    err, honestly, too much, but as long as you are happy... Plus the local store usually have higher prices.(Hopefully they also gave you high trade in credit)
    I won't suggest paying $160 for a damn swoop either, this price tag belongs to the shockwave :)

    agreed on the swoop price but it seemed in pristine condition and nearly complete to complete but once i saw the price i set it down and kept looking and as for local shops i know they can be higher than online but then again i don't have to pay shipping or wait for it come in in the mail or by ups so its worth a bit extra for that and im good customer of that shop so they did give me best possible price for my Lord of the Rings figures

    I got my G1 Grimlock for $65. It had sticker wear, but everything else was nice.
