    Rate what you think are the rarest G1 gestalts. Include rare variants if you like. I reckon the rarest imo are:

    Very Rare
    1. El Greco Devastator
    2. GIG Bruticus/Abominus
    3. Hasbro Defensor
    4. Takara Superion

    Rare
    5. Hasbro Piranacon
    6. El Greco Defensor
    7. Battle Gaia
    8. Guard City
    9. Dinoking/Liokaiser/Raiden
    10. Takara computron
    11. Predaking(original)
    12. Takara Abominus
    13. Hasbro Computron
    14. Road Caesar
    15. King Poseidon
    16. Landcross - one of the 2 crappiest combiners imo, but not many of them floating around. You do see some, but they are probably the same ones because no one wants him LOL
    17. Takara Menasor

    Hard to find
    18. Takara Bruticus
    19. Takara Devastator
    20. Hasbro Menasor
    21. Predaking(reissue)

    Common
    22. Hasbro Superion/Devastator
    23. Bruticus reissue
    24. Predaking 2nd reissue
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    25. Piranacon reissue

    I may have missed some, but that's most of them off the top of my head lmao.

    Ye, I listed U.S. Devy as a common figure too. In fact why did I start calling it U.S. instead of Hasbro, I'll change that now lol.

    I've seen a lot more Liokiaser giftsets than Dinoking ones over the years.

    I think I've seen 3 or 4 giftsets in the last 3 years. Dinoking about the same. I guess it depends on when you're looking in the market. In fact, of the last 5 I listed in the very rare section, I have yet to see any of them lately, but I wasn't actively searching for them.

    Liokaiser - not as rare, only costly. Same can be said for Raiden.

    Dinoking - maybe a little more uncommon as compared to the above.

    GiG Abominus - Ultra rare beyond all these.

    Still, nothing beats the VSA Giftset.

    Edit: Takara Superion Giftset is not rare...at all.

    Lol, it doesn't even officially exist, nobody has one :lol 

    Ye, I say Takara Superion, cause I've only ever seen 1 or 2 ever. It's a hell of a lot rarer than the Hasbro version.

    Gig Abominus is real rare, Battle Gaia and Guard City are rarer than Dinoking.

    Hmm, All I need is a goddamn Dinoking to complete my Victory collection! But man has the price really reach astronomical levels these past few years. Try a minty mint set going for close to 2K! :crazy:

    I've seen Battle gaia and Guard city quite a lot lately. I guess it's like Raiden and Liokaiser, VHTF and very expensive.

    Ye, he ain't worth $2k imo. He's the other crappy combiner along with Landcross :p 

    I moved GIG Abominus/Bruticus to the top. I guess I could rearrange the "very rare" section, but it's really subjective.

    yeah, somebody shld just sell Dinoking to me at only 1K IMHO. That combiner is only worth it for his unique Dino shells.

    There're talks about this being in "someone's" possession.

    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/trans...n/227336-vsa-giftset-menasor-vs-superion.html

    Hate to rain on your parade but Japanese Superion is not rare at all. He's one of the most common Giftsets to come across couple of years back. ;)

    Not sure about Gig Abominus, but Battle Gaia and Guard City are the rarest actual released combiners so far I thought. Only thing rarer would be G2 Defensor and G2 Menasor.

    Personally, I think Landcross is an creative departure from the bland "Scramble City combiner" philosophy. But I get you, he needs a little getting used to.
