    i'm presented with the oppurtunity of buying an japanese bruticus giftset (the vintage one) and a japanese ultra magnus both MIB... the asking price on both is 200£ is it a good deal?
    i allready have the US version of ultra magnus so to get another one it must be a good deal, the problem is i have absolutely no idea of the japanese version worth...

    so can anybody help?

    200GBP? Seems cheap for a Bruticus giftset?

    Is there a catch?

    Magnus on the other hand, i might have wondered if it's a bit steep...but maybe it's worth more than i realised.

    You mean 200 each?

    Or 200 to buy both, together?

    Because if it's the second one, i smell too good to be true.



    Even if it's 200 *each* Bruticus still seems almost too good to be true.

    Really not sure about the value on Magnus.

    This is 200 British pounds for both right? And they are both the originals?

    Seems really good!

    Is the Ultra Magnus the unpainted head? Also are the boxes complete (eg. nobody cut out robot points? tech specs, etc)

    Buyer buys a KO and stuff it in a vintage box whilst keeping the toy. We've seen it before.
