    Hi all

    Sadly I have decided to sell my G1 US Bruticus Giftset as I need the money for other things now. This piece was long believed not to exist. I got this one many years ago from a former Hasbro employee. It is the only one I have ever seen. It is complete and includes the US English giftset instructions

    Accepting SERIOUS offers now before I put it on ebay

    Thanks

    That is awesome. Im not used to seeing one without GiGi on the front; but Ive seen one of those before a few years back at a flea-market. I think it was like 1990 and the box was trash... So how much ya lookin for?? $1,000? Send it to AFA for grading.....

    If you found one of these at a flea market, that would be the luckiest find of all time.

    And $1,000? that's a good one. Seeing as how there are probably only 2 or 3 of these even in existence, and the fact that there are a lot of giftset collectors out there, you will probably want to add at least one more zero, and considering the worthlessness of the US Dollar that probably still wouldn't be enough.

    Yeah, I like your poke at the US Dollar there; you've got a point. Also, like I said - I think I saw it back in 1990. I was 7 years old; I cant recall every detail of it. It possibly may have been a GiGi set that found its way state-side or maybe there as a bootleg giftset. Ive seen some rare stuffs at the market before tho; MIB c9Jetfire (complete) w/c7 box -- I talked the guy down from $40 to $24. Once I convinved my dad to turn around and go back to get it (showing him $140 value in ToyFare) the guy had already packed up and left.

    I tend to have stupid luck like that... I'll get a really good deal, but when I get back with the money its gone. Oh well.

    I still think that giftset should be sent to AFA....

    Sorry guys!

    APRIL FOOLS!

    It's an old photoshop I did years ago to wind up Karl Hartman. Its made from an Italian Bruticus Giftset and a US Menasor giftset

    I got quite a few offers too! Lowest was under $100, highest was $5000

    Here's what it is in reality!
