    Hi guys just want to know how much the value of the giftset is nowadays or how much you'd be willing to spend.

    He's quite rare to find, especially the giftset. I have seen more of raiden and liokaiser giftsets than road caesar. In fact I have only seen 2 of him on ebay the last one sold for around 900USD

    USD $900?? :eek: 

    That's overstretching by a mile.

    Unless I'm out of touch or something...Roadcaesar don't close at this kind of pricing, even if they're Unused.

    Ok, maybe its sealed or AFA graded?

    ^& I saw one listed for USD$ 800..:redface2: 
    but yeah generally agree with Auto, that the good price is bordering not more than 700 bucks for a minty unused one.

    I got my Road Caesar earlier this year for a very gd deal at 400 USD in a C5 - 6 box, toy was in c7 - 9 condition. I don't mind the box being in lesser condition as I would have liked it to be but it was so hard to find and get him you gotta sometimes grab those opportunities.

    It was barely sealed with tapes coming loose due to age on a c7 box with the clear plastic on the boxes window having a big hole in it. It still went well over 800USD!

    Stickers applied unused? I think it should b stickers applied used?

    I'm lucky to own 2 pieces...the first being a lousy box at abt C5 but toys are C9 used (abt usd500)
    The second is a c9 box n toy unused (abt usd 600)

    But I seldom see one with this condition n price on ebay...it's always higher priced!

    I musta been lucky. c9 bots with a c6+ box (probably would be higher if there wasn't a hole in the clear plastic) for under $300 a few months ago.

    Road Caesar just isn't that popular and he is kind of common. You could buy the giftset, singles, reissued singles, and the european gold box version:2c: 

    As far as comparing him to the other characters of that show (Value wise), I'd put his popularity behind jan:lol  (I'm exaggerating but its low). Outside of Star Saber and Greatshot, the autobots got some really crappy figures. Landcross and Road Caesar just flat out suck.

    Also, the Decepticons were produced in lower volumes in comparison to the Autobots since bad guy toys did not sell well in Japan (correct me if i'm wrong). Another thing to consider, Lio Kaiser commands his price because of the GPS issues (Killbison) suffers from.

    I donno what all the hate over road caesar is. If your referring to his child bearing hips then that can easily be fixed by extending a little. You also must have looked at the perfect times cause I have seen so few, like I said I've seen more Raiden and liokaiser giftsets than Road caesar.

    I would rate him slightly above the power core combiners, that being said, he is one ugly toy. I would say 600-750 on a nice minty MIB one.

    Which was the reason why I quoted "depending on condition." ;) 

    I gotten mine (C9 box Unused) at an even lower pricing in 90s.

    As a whole in Victory series, Landcross seems to be the only character that has maximum "play value." (IMHO) :)
