    This is my favourite Dinobot and I found him on e-bay for a reasonable price. Note that I only want him to play with. Heres his description. You are bidding on a Generation 1 Slag figure. The figure is in good played-with condition, with average chrome and paint wear and minor sticker wear. Please note that there is a small chip on the left side of his neck, where it meets the back panel (I think you can see it in the picture). There are no weapons or accessories. Please also check my other listings for more dinobots and dinobot parts. Just click on any of the links in the header above to browse, or use the search box to look for specific items.
    I dont really care about the weapons either. He'll cost me 30 bucks, should I buy him?

    The link might help to see the condition of it. That being said, $30 seems like a good price.

    Yeah, that doesn't look too bad, though to be honest I've not shopped for Dinobots in a long while. Got mine at various car boot sales and the like.

    For reference, price check stuff is usually better suited to the Toyark.

    Not too bad, but I'd beware that it may be floppy, especially the dino's mouth/robot chest plate. I can't tell from that picture if it's open for display or if it just won't stay up. Also, that particular side may look okay, but with no robot pic, it's hard to tell if the other side looks the same way. I'd say it's 50/50 that it's a good deal.

    It lists the joints as tight so i'm not that worried about the mouth.

    if any of the stickers are bad, get yourself a set from reprolabels. they do wonders for making vintage tfs look new again.

    I got him today, better than what I expected for the price. Just the mouth is a bit loose. I want to know where I can get a good sticker kit, could you guys list some names please?
