    Wow. A worthy purchase, certainly.

    Nice, I envy you my friend, great pickup.

    It's not a deal if that's what your asking. But typically a complete boxed one sells in this range on average.

    Holy crap. BEAUTIFUL. And yes, I'd say that was a VERY good price.

    I'm actually really excited for you - you won't be disappointed. There's something oddly compelling about this guy. I can't put my finger on it exactly, but I feel that way about both him and Raiden. Maybe it's because they're G1 figures that I didn't grow up with, but discovered as an adult.

    I think I paid $325 MIB and complete about five years ago, so the price you paid seems about right now that we're a few years down the line.

    Congrats on a real special piece!

    like I said I've wanted him for years, and figured since I plan (the key word here is plan) on pretty much stopping collecting after the movie figs, I'd better get him now. I was just hoping I didn't overpay for this guy, but it seems I didn't so I'm happy!:thumb

    That's not a bad price at all. I saw that the other night, but I can't spend $500 on a TF right now. Plus I also got a knockoff at Botcon last year which Im quite happy with for now. Sadly there are no breast force partners but for $10 I can't complain.

    Edit:

    At botcon last year there were people asking as much as $700 bucks for a MIB giftset that wasn't as nice as that one.

    What I need is a loose/complete one with sticker wear or no stickers to make it more affordable.

    Lucky man. That's a beautuful item right there. :D 

    You know, I can't wait to start a Victory collection. I just need a few more G1s to finish off what I call my essential MIB/MOC collection (all toys that apeared in season one of G1). I have yet to get Hook, Shockwave, Swoop, and SLudge. Then I hope to fallow the path you and others have laid out before me and start on VICTORY.

    That's about right for a Liokaiser giftset. Especially a dead mint one like that. Good catch!
