    Most online retailers had the TAK reissue on clearance for $60 or less, took a long time for them to get rid of it too, but not as bad as Star Convoy. I love mine, all kinds of fun with the trailer and almost excessive weapons.

    Star Convoy never hit as low as God Ginrai. BBTS had God Ginrai for 20 dollars for a loooooooong time.

    I picked up the set at BBTS on clearance for something like $15 many years ago. The market had pretty much collapsed on it for some time, I recall eBay auctions for it ending at the initial bid, so people were getting theirs for anything from $5 on up.

    Ebay:
    i must not be reading this thread right.
    i have been on the eBay for the past couple of months, and the prices for this figure ain't cheap.
    and the one I want, the TRU PM Prime is floating around the $150-200 range.

    so if you could find it for $45-50 then god bless, dawg.

    Wow!, I am glad I picked up the Japanese reissue back in 2001 for $35 from Imageanime.com. But yeah it is a fantastic toy. It may be a G1 brick in many ways but is a beautiful G1 brick with bad ass weapons!

    Well! I wish I had known about it bact then. Where would be a place (not Ebay) that I could get an okay price today?

    I don't know if any online retailers still have them in stock. You might want to put a want ad in the Junkion Exchange wanted section. That, besides Ebay, would be your best bet.

    I am not fond of the Brick Prime, but as a playset/base, i love it.
    which is why i am looking for one.

    it is a wonderful addition to the G1 collection.

    I'm with you, finding the Hasbro reissue for under $100 has been a pain in the ass. I lucked into one for 80-something, counting shipping, last week.

    Very true! Despite essentially being a brick, he can pull off one or two poses:
