    Just wondering if the Teletran 1 setup from I Gear was worth getting. Heard some bad reviews on it, but can pick it up right now for 76 bucks. Thanks.

    I have one. I wouldn't recommend paying more than $60-70, tops.

    I was pissed off frustrated assembling the damn thing. Once I taped it together from the back though it has been rock solid. I move it constantly sitting on a board and its my daughters favorite playset. It has taken a beating and survived. So I would say just know the frustrations ahead of you and its a great item.

    As far as materials go it's pretty sturdy. It's a nightmare to try to assemble though.

    I've yet to glue the frame together, but I've enjoyed using the actual consoles and accessories for my comic in the funnies forum.

    I've heard it is atrocious with warped plastic that doesn't fit together and acheives new levels of feeling cheap. I was so getting this at one point until I started reading reviews and now I've been put off forever.
