    Hi,

    I can purchase both these guys for 2500 usd. Should I take it?
    The BG is unused and the metro is sealed.

    The questions "Is this a good deal?" and "Should I take it?" can be very different.

    Yes, it's a good deal.

    A MIB Japanese G1 collector with abundant wealth (which may be a bit redundant) should take it. Other people should not- $2500 can buy one hell of a Transformers collection.

    I don't collect vintage stuff so I have no idea how much this stuff is worth but if you have the cash and have wanted this stuff for a while then grab it.

    My BG is the same condition but has 2 stickers used on the sheet ( bahh ) but I dident pay more then 450 but that was from a Jap auction 1,5 years ago and int ppl hade to use a third party to bid.

    Im not up to date with Metrotian but hey a sealed Metroitan is always a seald one. and I dont think youll find a cheaper BG. He has a tendensy to go for alot of money when he show up, especially in unused condition on ebya withc is one every 5 years or so.

    That is one of the best thoughts I have heard about collecting.


    I also think you should go for them. The shape of the toys seems to justify the price. Good luck and I hope you could share more pics with us!

    dang..$2500, that's a lot of money...i don't think you should've gotten it...because, you can get so much more for it...like an electric scooter, or build urself a nice turbo powered computer...unless u are working in the medical field, then I would be all over it...maybe not...but u know...
