    That's because all we see are MIB or MISB Overlords. Not so long ago, there was a bunch of complete/loose Overlords floating on Ebay.

    I'm pretty sure he's pricing it as a real one. He's got an OP KO that he's selling as a 'super rare version' for a similarly ridiculous markup.

    OK now that seller should be shot, The only concept I like is the chrome gun & tank turret. That beats the purple.

    Horrible, crappy, Overlord/Starsaber hybrid. And at THAT price? I got a perfect REAL Overlord for a fraction of that. Twunt.

    well, its is actually more rare than a regular overlord.

    and its actually quite a coveted piece with that gonzo star saber head.

    its a decently documented KO and that is a very fine specimen in box.

    That would be the rare Korean oversized G2 version. Those usually go for what he's asking...

    You are correct sir! That version is much bigger and much sought after. As for the Overlord, I've never seen one before if that tells ya anything about it's rarity.

    those at 500 are all BINs from "stores" hardly an indicator of an item's going rate. those guys ALWAYS overcharge for their crap.
