    Auction link?

    At this point in collecting I'm hesitant to put that much trust in ebay for a red Optimus cab.

    I might think about it if it had the blue cab.

    Since clearly the best offers came from you ;)  , how much were those offers the seller rejected? If there's a certain ballpark he's leaning towards, we could more easily tell whether it's worthwhile to continue or not.

    Well, "they," I suppose. I need to brush up on my overseas Diaclone/TF rarities now...

    What were your offers? I'd say no more than $1500.

    Years ago, I got my mib complete blue cab version for about $400. Personally, i'd pay about half that for the red cab version, but that's just me. I like the blue cab more. I haven't been following the market much, the last few years, so i'm not sure what the going rate is.

    Also, in my expierence, finding parts to complete these rare guys, is almost impossible. But again, that's just me. I've never had the luck finding rare parts.

    it doesn't have the metallic trailer bed. i'd want the metallic one. i have a custom that someone made where they brought the trailer to a shop and had it chromed, only problem is, one tab that connects the shoulder is broken so it flops a little.

    I will pass on this since seller is asking for way too much money.
    I guess i can save now for a lucky draw :) 

    Thanks for the info!

    yeah I bought the chrome one and then it went missing! :( 

    If this guy can charge $1800 for that red-cab GiG incomplete then I can charge $2500 for mine!!

    The reason it's so expensive might be because it actually has a very good box and that is MIGHTY rare when it comes to Powered Convoy. My own one is a GiG and red-cabbed, but the box is practically case fresh and I have the unapplied stickers. On top of that, there is a clear plastic cover on the styro that you almost NEVER see with powered Convoys from any country, that's how unused it was. So I would feel much more justified charging that for mine thatn this guy.

    All the best
    Maz
