    brave max's price has been on the rise lately, looks like you scored a decent deal IMO. I sold the korean version of brave max for 575.

    not bad price at all. i bought my loose one for 220, so what you paid seems right around the price range w/ the box and all.

    Holy crap, has the price on him really gone up that much? I remember when I bought him between RiD and Armada and I got him brand new in the box for $120. Yowza.

    Hehe, I just got Brave Max through ebay too (and have received him). I'd say that price is ok but not great but indeed his price has been on the rise lately. I got mine (Korean) w/out box but w/ instructions, pretty mint except dust, for $215 (plus $40 shipping). I saw but missed a Jap one with box but opened for $240 but it was BIN and went within 2 hours.

    So I'd say he's not quite worth that much but people are starting to buy him up as if he was vintage Fortress Maximus (prices like $400-600 just seem silly to me) so it will probably be worth that soon enough (seriously do some people think they are buying Fort Max w/ these $500-type prices lately?)

    i think its probably in part cuz of the movie...people who havent been into TF's in forever are coming in and throwing money down for large items...its crazy, but sweet for those of us selling...

    i dont have any right now cuz my megabolt is in storage, but i missed an auction that had a complete brave for 175 BIN that had a fort max door swapped for the ugly neon green one and a megabolt megatron with it. I saw it and by the time i went to check my bank account and come back it was gone!

    So i broke down and bought one of the last few korean boxed braves on ebay, over payed but i was sick of getting into bidding wars on any kind of max. This was like 2 years ago. Since then I got the repro guns and megabolt and the upgrade sticker sets from reprolabels. HE is the ultimate hybrid max lol If i ever find a cog and gasket

    yeah the megabolt is in perfect proportion. Try to get the red/ purple one i know theres like 4 color variations on him. The rubber legs hold him in place, and bend without permanently warping them. I heard somewhere that the whole reason megabolt was re released in RID was because he was supposed to be an alternate head for brave max.
