Is it just me, or is this a lil crazy for a MISB Headmaster Scourge?

    Yeah, I think the overall gloss and niceness of the box (very little corner/edge wear) and the fact that it's still sealed trump the flap crease. Though I wonder how it even got that much of a crease while the rest stayed so nice.

    Sure about that? TM Scourge was only one to a case when he shipped, but that in itself shouldn't have created such rarity that there would only be three or four still around. Unless there's something even more special about this one in particular.

    Definitely not an unreasonable price, though; based on what I've seen in the past.

    way more than 3 or 4. as far as raity goes for sealed stuff in the G1 line, I think your bumblejumpers and TM hotrod are more scarce. but TM scourge and TM cyclonus are pretty damn rare. hell even TM kup and blurr are pretty hard to come by. but way more than 3-4.

    LOL, no.

    The insane sellers don't dictate actual value.

    This is an error box (there are far more than three or four though). anyone selling that for 75 is an idiot.

    it's very rare error box. (not 3 or 4 rare, but rare)
    even a regular TM Scourge MISB is worth a lot. but I see nothing unusual about the price.

    You tricked me, I thought HM Scourge was a custom. I was wondering why Scourge would even need a Headmaster,lol

    Was Scourge's box ever even fixed like Hot Rod's though? For some reason, I thought they were all 'error boxes.'

    Part two of that...even if it was fixed like Hot Rod's, i.e. late in the run, wouldn't that make the corrected version rarer?

    It's worth it imo. If this was 4 years in the future, I would get it.

    There probably are only 3 or 4 SEALED Targetmaster Cyclonus'. Great deal by the way. Not steep at all.
