    What do you guys think a fair price is for a complete Monstructor (by complete I mean shells, weapons, combining parts, the whole deal)?

    If you have one for that, I'll take it! :) 

    eBay says $250 - $300, but there are live auctions and store items with BINs that want $450 - $600

    The most expensive combiner by far. Personally, my least favorite too.

    yeah, I've got dinoking which shares the same gestalt mode, and he's underwhelmingly tiny, especially for what his going price is.

    If I really wanted it, I'd never pay more than $200 for it, but as I don't want it, someone else might be willing to spend some more cash.

    Just watch out for the GPS problem on Bristleback and Slog. That alone can drive the price higher since Bristleback can be incredible brittle.

    10 years ago maybe.

    Speaking of...if the person who bought one from me on a.t.t. about that long ago, for even more than that, is here...you uh, wanna sell it back at the price you paid? [​IMG]

    I'd say a wide range of $200-300 now. Lucky to get one totally complete for less, but no reason to pay more ala the ebay store peoples.

    I spent $150 on mine a few years back. Stickers were all worn, and one of the gun pegs broke very quickly, but never had any trouble with the gold plastic or with the shells being gummy / slimey.

    I quite like them too, they look good menacing my Micromasters. The shells are decent too if you can imagine them as huge monsters lurking in misty forests and stuff, like something out of an old B-Movie. Actually the same could be said of any of the Decepticon Pretenders... except Stranglehold.

    im sorry but thats just funny. i like how you were all confident, then epiphany: so much for that theory lol

    i like the monstructors, but not for the combined mode, for the same reasons i dislike the MM combiners. but i kinda think the individual designs kinda neat, both monster and bots.

    ToyFare price guide claims $70 US. Completely inaccurate?

    I always think of guides as just that: a rough guide.

    My thought is that the price of something is always going to be dependent on how in demand the product is. The more in demand, the more it's "worth". I think that looking at an average of the prices that these things are being sold for is the best indicator.
