    I'm pretty sure the reason it sold for so much was because of the inclusion of the Megs/Waspinator set, but even then the auction seemed to go out of control, I remember Peaugh sold his around Botcon time last year and it went for about half that much which had all the same goodies if memory serves me right.

    Realistic prices if sold individually. That lot auction only sold for 10% more than the total below.


    Megs + Waspinator $500
    Laserbeak + Buzzsaw $140
    Tigatron $100
    Boxset $350

    the price peaugh's complete 06 set sold for was a fluke. I think this set ended about right.

    This seller has put up loads of goodness the past couple months. I bought a combiners lot from him but in the description he says "I forgot to mention, Menasor's waist peice is slightly warped. These items are the miraculous survivors of a house fire". You'll see that in some of his other descriptions.
    Half the items arrived covered in a layer of grime. A few appear to have permanent discoloration but I haven't tried cleaning them, in case I have to file a claim. I wrote to him and he's offered to reimburse me for not fully disclosing condition. He says he's selling his collectin to recover from the fire but I haven't heard from him since. Don't know if I believe it was really his house that burned.

    Someone on the boards was bidding on that. He was outbid and agreed to buy my Megatron for $500.
