    Seriously. Been looking for it on eBay for YEARS. One of my holy grails. Finally snagged a Transformers Activity Center a decade ago, but no STARS mailaway. Any idea of rarity, price, someone who wants to ditch one?

    It's rather rare. Have seen one on ebay before and it went for about $55. So, judging by that I'm thinking it's pretty hard to come by.

    Whew! I was afraid it was gonna be expensive. Now to keep my eyes peeled...anyone who has it wanna give it a review? The good the bad and the ugly?

    Is it as cool as it looks in the brochure?

    I had one back in the day and was underwelmed by it. If memory serves, it was just cardboard that folded into a boxey command center...No idea what happened to it...

    I think that is a tad overpriced for some cardboard lol. just my thought. It's not THAT cool. Probably why they are hard to come by. After a good amount of play it fell apart on me as a kid so it got thrown away.

    Overprice much? Dang! I want it bad, but not "mortgage or car payment bad". Well, they'll have that for awhile :)

    I had one as a kid and was SO excited waiting for it to come, but was not impressed at all once it arrived. As others have said, it's basically a cardboard box. It tore up from use (and I was CAREFUL with my toys as a child) within a month or so and we ended up pitching it. That may be why they're hard to come by now.
