    Yep, those are Delphane's :)  I'm all for these baing AFA'd, especially with the new Defensor counterfeits...I wont be surprised if we see a bootleg G2 version as well as a Guardcity version.

    I think it's more than just that. With the bootleg / counterfeiting going on with everything from G1 originals, exclusives (Jafcon Prime), fake prototypes, and apparently Lucky Draws, buying on the very high end is getting riskier all the time. We KNOW these Protectobots are legit, but if you are collecting for value what happens if a bunch of fake sets start popping up? Personally I don't care about value, but I know a lot of people who do...unfortuantely if I spend the 15K on this and used the wedding $$$ I'd have a pretty ticked off fiance who would become FAR less understanding about my toy habbit :p

    Adding to that, these are targeted for a specific group... the 1% of 1% of the fandom whose collections revolve around such unique items. For those folks intent on having these, I'd imagine the price seems less surprising.

    Gotta say, if there were a Hotspot in the mix, I'd be trying to figure out a way to make it happen. But having 4/5 would keep me up at night. :lol

    I agree with in regards AFA'd comment and I see your point in regards to the potential of a bootleg version (to be honest, I sort of want to see a G2 bootleg Menasor since it would be the next best thing).

    I collect stuff after all for the neatness (like G2 Motormaster/Drag Strip/Breakdown) and I agree with your point(s)..ticked off fiance would not be worth it indeed.

    >I got lucky in finding G2 MM that I did while I have yet to see G2 Hot Spot.

    they are out there, i have seen a photo of a complete defensor and menasor next to eachother, so it exist

    Alright thanks for the info, and at any rate it seem very likely neither will go up for sale any time in the near future.
