    the green grapple is a tfc reissue test shot and i believe that the "wolverine car" is a package sample of the go-bots line.

    i can't believe that he's parting with all these extremely rare jewels and pieces of tf history

    i'd love to own a g2 protectobot set...man i miss those funky colored bots

    As cool as the G2 Protectobots and carded Micromasters are, I love that see-thru green Grapple. I'm just a sucker for clear!

    I'd quite like some of the UK comic pages he has I have others from the same issues, but $200 for pages from the '87 annual? I paid about a quarter of that. No dice. The G1 covers are priced about twice what covers usually go for on auction too.

    Plus, the UK Transmetal repaints, $80? ..Seriously? I appreciate they're rarer in the States, but you can buy those things in the UK from as little as $1.50 loose or carded. I bought a pair of them on cards back in '07 on eBay for 99p each, then got a loose pair for about £2 a few months later just because nobody else bid and I felt like buying something.

    Nobody buy these before I at least get the chance to see them! (They're bound to be several orders of magnitude out of my price range, but at least I can see them in person...)
