    Well I managed to pinch my pennies and work my butt off the last several months and therefore will have an obscene amount of cash to throw down at this years Botcon. The big ticket item that is at the top of my list for this years show is tracking down a G1 MIB Overlord. However despite having lots of cash I don't want to blow all my Botcon money on one toy so I ask what's a good price to look out for him at?

    I concur with the above. $250-$300 is a good price, and you can find him for that at the show. Some Botcons have him, some do not. Usually there are no more than 3 at a show. If it's a European dealer expect to pay $400-$500.

    I have one for sale, but it's not complete. I would say $250.00 max for a loose complete mint one. A box one will run you $350.00 plus.

    I'm guessing the gold boxed European version are harder to find, thus the higher price tag?

    The guy from LastCentury should have one, I think he was asking $300. Not sure if it was complete or not, but it was Jp boxed.
