    wow that's nuts.
    pardon my ignorance, but what's GiG? is it a different manufacturer or something? I saw GiG on his box...just don't know what it means, and what makes it so rare.

    GIG - Italian.
    And it's also rare because it's a mint, sealed Overlord.

    Ebay:

    ohoh what a smart comment.
    tell "scalper" to me..this is a great piece of news,and I'm glad to hear it.
    Macraptron,in my auction there is the "best offer" option..
    how much do you want to pay a c-10 misb overlord? 100 usd? 200 usd?
    in my opinion,it is worth 850/1000.

    PS: I want to thanks Draven,Hitch-TSB and Cobra Zartan for the explanations about my item.thank you friends. I read this thread only now.

    Ummm, trying to figure out the relevance of your statement since noboby here is talking about a MISB Takara Overlord. They are talking about a rarely seen GIG Overlord that is sealed no less.

    I paid $100 for a MISB Overlord in Japan.
    Sorry didn't mean to offend, but 2k is way too much. I'd say 700 top.

    Awesome! It's too bad so few people will know the awesomeness that is Overlord... and what a stellar specimen this is. Good luck with the sale.

    Wonder why no US release back in the day?

    Not anytime recently you didn't, and if it was recent, you know that you got the deal of the century, and you also know that $100 is not a reasonable market price that everyone is going to find. You got lucky and you know you did. Now $700 might be a reasonable price for a MISB Overlord in Japan, but I think you would be hard pressed to find one in a Japanese toy shop right now for that low.

    Your logic is flawed. Just because you got a fantastic deal on something does not mean that the market price for an item drops drasticly.

    I see people paying $1200, $1500, $2000 for sealed first series cars, jets, soundwave, etc. and those things are dirt common and nowhere near as great a toy as Overlord, so $2000 on super rare GIG version is a great deal by comparison.

    Either he got a crazy deal or he's just lying about it. Easy, I can do it too.

    I got a MISB G1 Fort Max for $25.

    The first,last , and only sealed graded takara overlord went for $2500 a couple years ago. There are at least two GIG sealed Overlords that I have seen. Both are owned by members of this board. Puff and another member. Normally GIG releases have a slightly lesser value here in the states but fetch higher prices over seas. I do admit i like the box art on the takara release better it is more dynamic.
    I could easily see that going for $1500, in fact, I wouldn't let it go for less. Overlord is one of the best figures ever and he's never been re-released.
    Honestly, if there was a cheap sealed overlord to be found in japan, It would have been found by one of the many selllers over there; MOT,ANglo, Bodhar2000, etc. long ago.
    It's $500 for a MIB overlord, how do you get a sealed one for $700? Be fair to the Puff. I'd pay extra just knowing he was going to donate to the italian earthquake victims.
    A beautiful piece of TF history.
