    How rare and expensive is Monstructor? I used to have one when I was a kid. It was one of my favourites.

    Probably one of the rarest / most expensive of the US released combiners. Although it depends if you want the Pretender shells and guns. I'm not really sure what price he goes for.

    Seen prices from $150-$250. But at the same time I want to say as high as $300 or more on ebay. All depends on how complete he is. It's the stupid guns that really screw you up. They are super hard to get. But if you're in the market for then, there' a guy on tfans.com that are selling reprods of them. Worth the investment.

    I got mine loose/complete (maybe missing a few guns? can't remember) but it was a long long time ago. I want to say it was around $100. But they are pretty damn rare, I hardly ever see on listed.

    I just got a couple of the pretender monsters at a nice price. No guns, of course. But I like the ugly little bastards.

    My Wildfly, Bristleback, and Scowl shells had a ton of strange brown spots all over them. they've probably fallen apart by now.

    I've got 4 of the little monster bots, but no accessories. I've paid less than $5 each for them. I got hold of Scowl's shell but I just sold it on for about $10 or so. I hate pretender shells and expensive TFs.

    Tell me about it, I'm actually trying to hunt down a Dinoking and there's 1 of the little suckers on eBay right now with a BIN for like $500:thumbdown  There's even an Instruction sheet for $45 double:thumbdown

    Good luck with finding a Dinoking. That's even more rarer than the monstructors. I got lucky and found a complete set MIB for $400. And that was supposely a steal. I think out of all the gestalt, Dinoking is the hardest to get or complete. The giftset is also impossible to get. Only a few have that.

    I got my complete Monstructor for around $240 IIRC. Wildfly's shell had the common spots though, and soon I had to glue parts of Bristleback back together. Stupid gold colored plastic.

    Actually I do really like the little Monstructor guys. Hopefully one day I'll get the two I'm missing.

    IIRC, a near perfect Monstructor will run you $250 or so - aside from the problems with brown spots, and finding one with all the parts, Slog suffers from the infamous brittle gold plastic syndrome.

    Bought this set for $120 off ebay. The guy sold it pretty cheap since he did'nt feel like making the auction, and I threw the offer to him beforehand

    I was shocked when I realized how tiny he is
