    'Cuz I've got $325 store credit at my favorite comic shop...
    I thiink he has all his stuff, and looks to be good condition....
    Is it an average price. or is it a score?
    Should I get him?
    (I don't care for G1, and I only have store cred because I sold them the last of my TFs...)

    Before you decide, check ebay prices, go from average price it sells for. My question to you is , if you sold the last of your TF, why buy a TF? Although I think I understand, Collecting Tformers never die's, you just go through phases of the hobby.

    If you don't care for G1, then I don't understand why you'd even consider getting a Sixshot at that price.

    I think it's a little much as you can score a near mint condition Sixshot (complete w/both guns) for $50-60.

    Definitely on the high side. If it was MISB re-issue maybe, but $150 would be closer to right. A MIB G1 could possibly go that high. But demand on him is not high. I want to get one eventually just to have, but no hurry to find him either so when the best deal pops I'll get him. Comic shops also way over charge on stuff like this to. I'd pass.

    I dunno, it seems a little high. I got my G1 Sixshot for $70, in near perfect condition, though it didn't come with the box. Look around on eBay first.

    ppl are easy to say pass when ppl ask about G1 stuff.

    There is to many factorys to look for when going after a G1 item.

    1: Condition of the toy, is it mint, undamadged, no scrates, no discoloration and so on.
    2: Is he complete with all papperwork and parts and what are the condition on these.
    3: The box, how crisp is the box, is the corners dinged or sharp, tech and points still intact.
    4: Styro Sixshoot came in, is it undamadged and white.

    If all of the above criterias can be meet and that I seriesly doubt it would easy be worth the 175.

    there is mib and there is MIB. These can be very diffrent in prices.
