    Just a few minutes ago, I purchased one of what I call "The Fabled Four," four G1 Transformers that I used to own but have since lost to time and moving.
    The Fabled Four are: Powermaster Prime, Ultra Magnus, Rodimus Prime, and Galvatron.

    I decided to go ahead and try for a reissue PM Prime. I was in a pretty fierce bidding war but got one, MIB, for $85 with shipping! Seems to me like a good deal considering that most of the others on eBay were over a hundred bucks before shipping.

    Not sure when I'll get the next one, but I'll post here again when I do. I'm off to drink the wine of victory! (In this case, Yellow Tail Shiraz)

    should have gone for a powermaster prime reissue a few years back. bbts was clearancing out the japanese version (god ginrai) for around 20 bucks. they were available for a looooooong time at that price too.

    but hell, I paid 80 for mine when it came out, and dont regret it at all.

    Cool stuff though.Ultra Magnus is my fave of them.

    Thank you, my fellow fans! I know no one who can appreciate this the way another Transformers fan can.

    My wife was somewhat excited, but she still doesn't get it. No one can if they aren't a real fan.

    I'll keep you guys posted on how things go with the next three...I'm hopefully going to be making some eBay sales this week, so we'll see!

    I picked up an incomplete PM Prime for 25 bucks at a comic store last summer, then got his cannons on Ebay for 10 bucks or so, and a friend gave me one of the guns for free. Then I bought a God Bomber in box at the same store on sale for 50 bucks, but one of his fins was missing. :(

    What did the TRU reissue go for, wasn't it $50. originally?
    $85. seems high, even w/shipping.

    Congrats! Off your list, I just picked up a reissue Galvatron, but it cost a pretty penny. Good luck with the rest of your fabled four, and I'll tip a glass to you.

    Yeah, a lot of reissues have had crazy appreciation. This one in particular is more valuable and essentially tanked the market on vintage Powermaster Primes.

    Congrats on the score!
