    Ohh... I think I might have to get one of these. I love G2 and had all the G2 minibots. Purple is my favorite color too.

    It's like everything I like rolled into one.

    I hope he's not crazy-rare.

    EDIT: Just looked on eBay, the cheapest is in the $170ish range. NOPE.

    I saw some loose ones before on Ebay. The MOSC ones seem to be priced quite high.

    That'd be what I'd want. I open everything. I think I'd even open a MOSC G2 Breakdown if I got one. It's my grail, and I don't know if I'd actually be able to do it if I ever get one.

    Well, it like the normally coloured ones, except more purple, so I dunno what pics could really tell us here, especially since the colour range could easily be inaccurate in said pic.

    Also, it's thing like this that make me glad I already have Beachcomber & Bumblebee, and that G2 Hubcap isn't insanely priced if I decide to pick him up too.

    What's sad is that I think I might have seen one as a kid but never got him because "he was the wrong color". I didn't get the concept of rare variants back then lol.

    Loose ones seem to be much cheaper (an recent auction ended at 51 for two!). Just be patient and it will be cheaper.

    It's not very rare at all, but sellers always ask a premium for it. If you're prepared to be patient and check Ebay regularly then you'll probably snag one at $15 at some point.

    Basically G2 stuff had the same quality issues Beast Wars Transmetals did. The inconsistency in dye caused blue / purple / pink variations. Unintentional but variations none the less.
    I have only just discovered that the same variation exists with Cryotek. The purple highlights on some are pink. Very very rare, anyone know of any others?

    I read somewhere that G2 Beachcomber is also available in different shades of green.

    Never heard of that one but I will definitely keep an eye out for it.

    Haha, well for me, I'd have probably gone for the purple one instead of the blue for the sake of it being the odd one out, or even just couse I like purple.


    Well, the purple parts on mine are very dark purple, so its probably not one of the rare examples.

    I thought the purple color was just fading from the original blue.
