    I saw G1 thundy at a hobby shop the other day loose with all his stuff for 35$. I kind of want it, for G1-ish value... is 35 over or under what you'd pay?

    Yea I would get it. If it's in good shape then you've got a deal. Even if it's not it can still be used or you can resell it for parts.

    check the length of the machine gun missles, if they are abnormally long then its the us re-issue and worth a bit less then 35$ (about 20) if its the true us version with all 4 missles and his landing gear ,then thats definaly a steal at that price.

    You should consider the sticker wear though, if the stickers are in bad shape you have to pull them up and get new ones; if you want him stickered that is.

    As others have said, check this isn't the reissue version (which adjusted the missile length to bizarre proportions), and also sticker wear. Sticker wear is one of those things a lot of collectors (like me sometimes) say "Ah, I'm not too bothered about it", but trust me - it can really start to irritate after a while on display, and you'll find yourself wishing you'd paid a bit more for a minty-mint version!

    Yeah if it is complete and is an original G1 over the reissue then it is a good buy. If the stickers are in horrible condition, you can always buy reproductions of TC's stickers at Reprolabels

    You can see comparisons of G1 vs. reissue at tfu.info
