    It's been there for ages, hasn't seemed to sell well. I'd say it's a more than decent price.

    I have one and it looks great with all the other classic-like and commemorative stuff. I got mine at this price a while back and I wouldn't hesitate to buy it again.

    Meh, I'd wait till it hits $30 again. Yea hes definitely "worth" $40 heck even $50 if he would of had decent stickers but what can I say I'm a bit of a tight ass when I know a figure has been sold for less and sill has yet to sell out.

    Yea $30 around last Christmas I believe and $33 like last month??? Just keep an eye on the stock to make sure that it doesn't drop too low and if it does go ahead and order, but, with 2468 in stock at substandard grade (that's all that's left), I wouldn't be too worried about that happening.

    Unfortunately, there is one bad thing about it: there are quite a few QC flaws, specially with Overbite, who can't seem to hold on to his gun on his attack mode. Also, for some reason (don't know if it is this one, or if its Piranacon PERIOD), it is really hard to make him hold any of his components in weapon mode and not lean forward (or fall over =_=)

    Just to give you an idea of how "fast" he's selling last Christmas they had ~3400 in stock. I foresee him taking at least another year or two to completely sell out maybe three... Also if you don't own the G1 mold definitely get him. Like I typed earlier, $40 is a dang good price for what you get but yea even better at $30. Plus if you use POL with other figures shipping will be a lot cheaper.

    Pile Of Loot. Basicly you create an account change shipping to POL and they hold your items till you tell them to ship in one big or small shipment. You know bundling for shipping. Great way to cut shipping cost however if you don't order much form them may not be worth your time.
    Here's the link to BBTS that goes more indepth. POL

    His stickers are horrible quality, colors aren't identical to G1, and Snap Trap's head isn't black. BUT it is an awesome set. $40 for a full combiner, with six members and tons of accessories is an absolute steal.

    You cannot go wrong with ordering this set.

    That's because Piranacon was never on the G1 cartoon. He was on the headmasters cartoon in Japan

    If G2 Bruticus sells as badly as Piranacon, I won't have to worry about it selling out.

    He's not bad for what it is. If you collect combiners he'll fit in nicely. I wouldn't recommend him if he costed any more than he does now however.

    Nope, but Japan is the only place he showed up in the cartoon, in Masterforce.
