    I've got a question about American/Canadian box price differences.

    Here's a ridiculous auction on a MIB unused Metroplex:
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ih=015&sspagename=STRK%3AMEWA%3AIT&viewitem=&item=250090429535&rd=1&rd=1

    Since when have these things skyrocketed so much in price?



    Now, I've got a near identical Canadian version, seen in my collection on p. 2/3 here:
    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/showthread.php?t=119512&page=3

    Would mine be worth less because of the French box, or not? I know brown boxes of the G1 stuff go for significantly less than G1's in the American "grid" boxes.

    theres a reason why this is going for so much, look at the box, its pretty much dead mint with really no wear.

    A Metroplex boxed in that condition is very hard to find. I've dealt with the seller a few times. Great service. Did you see how much a boxed sealed Scoponok go for?

    no, that price is right, like malach ra said, a mint metroplex is super hard to find.
    most of them have sun-faded or creases or tears.

    I don't agree at all. It's amazing how you guys even consider it's a right price. It's not worth that much...I paid a lot less for my four Metroplex and the boxes are in almost the same condition as this one:
    175$ for MIB Japanese Metroplex unused all stickers unapplied
    200$ for my MISB USA, Metroplex
    50$ for my loose Metroplex
    200$ for my MIB Canadian Metroplex stickers unapplied.
    I sold my MISB USA Metroplex for 450$ 3-4 months ago. That's what they usually sell for 450$-550$(MISB), no more. A MIB, unused like this one it shouldn't cost more than 200-250$.

    lets see some pics, and put your money where your mouth is, cause i dont think your metroplex is as nice as this. and if you have a pic of your misb metroplex. i'll also bet, even though its sealed, its nowhere near as nice as this. looks like you got some good deals, and it also looks like you love metroplex....alot. LETS SEE SOME PICS!!!!

    i gotta say, thats a nice metroplex, but for 200 bucks, damn, and its sealed. you got one hell of a deal. I think anglo's metro has alittle less wear in certain spots, as yours does also. all in all, your metro is on par witrh anglo's metro. but yours is sealed.

    I stand corrected. thanks for the pics. and its definately worth way more than 200. thanks mega-zarak for shutting me up. i'm happy now.
