    Good evening, all.

    After giving it much thought, Jon and I have decided to sell off our sets of carded G2 Protectobots and Stunticons. Beginning on Sunday, March 26, and continuing over the next several weeks, we will be putting these toys up for auction individually on eBay. Jon's user name is "elrich," and he will be listing them under his name. Please note that the auctions will not have reserve amounts or Buy It Now options, we will not be accepting advance buyout offers for items that have not yet been listed, and there will be no discounts for multiple items won. They will all be listed as standard open auctions so everyone is treated as fairly as possible. Please don’t hesitate to ask if you have any questions. Thanks, and good luck if you decide to go for any of these.

    Karl

    why do i have a feeling the winner for the first item in each combiner is going to drastically overpay for the other ones :)

    I know these were never actually mass produced, right? I remember the Breakdown was a convention exclusive, so he's not impossible to find. But what about the rest of them. How many are out there?

    Be prepared to pay for that Defensor & that Menasor. That Breakdown is like $300 by itself.

    I want those so bad, yet the price they are going to fetch is beyond anything I could even comprehend spending. In the end I will watch the auction end, and then I will cry

    I've never seen carded versions of Motormaster and Hotspot in G2 style. Were they ever produced, and if so, are they part of this set of auctions as well? I might go for it if I thought they were also available, but if there's no opportunity to complete the combiner, I'll just be content with my G2 Breakdown.

    Come to think of it, I'm not the best person to own these anyway, since I'd rip the suckers right open... these should definitely be preserved in a MISBer's collection.

    No carded G2 Motormaster or Hot Spot has been publically found to this point, but it would not surprise me if one exists somewhere. As far as quantities produced of these, it may be as few as 12 of each. Complete sets of either of these, there may be 1 or 2 out there, but most people that have any only have one or two single guys. These are not graded by AFA, either. They have been in our hands for 14 years, and now, it is time to let them go.

    I wish, I could get $300 for my Breakdown. Plus I'll bet thier Breakdown does not have the Botcon sticker on the back.

    Actually I think they'll make out a LOT better doing it individually. A lot of us (myself included) don't have the funds it would take for a full set...but I'll be looking to add 1, maybe 2 if I'm lucky....and I know others that are thinking along the same lines. It's not like all 5 of either team are there, so whoever wins probably wouldn't have the entire set anyway :)
