    At my local import shop in the mall, I've been eyeing the Fire Guts release of Ginrai. Now I wanted to know how much he's worth and if for say 125 dollars is he worth it?

    I paid less than that for mine, but mine was a package deal with God Ginrai, Fire Guts Ginrai, and Nucleon Quest Convoy. Right now, yeah, that price is probably pretty good for him. There's few things as impressive as those three standing together. The only toy display that my wife has ever looked at and said, "Wow, that looks pretty cool." They may be bricks, but they're damn pretty bricks.

    I'd say that's a pretty good price. He's a very pretty bot, worth it if you like the mold.

    I've never had Ginrai and God Bomber before so it would be my first time with the mold. As pricy as he is, if I get him, I might be tempted to leave him in the box either that or taken him out on occassion to fiddle with him and put him back in the packing.

    What he said! I paid about $150 I think for mine, never out the package with the stickers unapplied, so $125 sounds like a good deal to me. It's a cool piece to have and looks real nice displayed.

    I would pay that for Super Convoy (the black version) but the orange and red scheme isnt my cup of tea.

    Since you've never had the mold, you might want to just get this and leave it sealed for now, and track down a reissue of the regular version which can be had for a reasonable price ($30-50ish) and open that one up as a test drive. The Fire Guts version isn't likely to go down in price so you could always resell.

    You're talking about Nucleon Quest Super Convoy right? The straight black powermaster prime without godbomber.

    I think i'll wait and see if the import store knocks it down a couple of bucks. The reason why this one is tempting is because it's only one of like 1.6k or so. Since it's rather rare, and since it depicts God Ginrai at the end of Masterforce it is more of a collectors/display piece. Yes, the color scheme is rather garrish however overall it seems like a rather cool piece.

    I agree, if you like the mold then he's totally worth it, if not you might want to pass.
