http://www.maj.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=142659 Got this awhile ago for cheap, had to remove some biking sticker a kid slapped on his head. But when he was polished up, it was actually in pretty good condition! I heard it was released only to "Green Stamps" stores (???) but I'm not sure I trusted that source. So... are these rare? Do they go for alot? Here's the pics... the 2 images before the last show the slight crack as well as a ding on his middle helmet piece. http://www.maj.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?i=1121244 http://www.maj.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?i=1121245 http://www.maj.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?i=1121249 http://www.maj.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?i=1121250 http://www.maj.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?i=1121251 http://www.maj.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?i=1135191 I also heard it may have been made by 2 different companies... but again, shitty source. Any verifiable data on this puppy? It's not often I sell strange or rare stuff... but it's even more perplexing because I don't know a whole hell of a lot about it yet. For instance, I'm wondering just how many were made. That's important because due to their fragile nature, I can't imagine too many still exist. This site lists the manufacture date as 1985: http://www.plumed-serpent.com/artifacts.html So far, these are the only places online I've seen it referenced with pics: $165 http://www.tias.com/7805/InventoryPage/1444324/1.html (no value determined): http://www.mythings.com/viewitem.aspx?itemid=218429 Notice too, where theirs both have silver, mine is more gold. So, that makes my quest for historical data even more complex... and this variant to the jar perhaps making mine even more rare. Of course, I do wonder if it's oxidization. (I have NO idea). However, I'm concerned in selling it in a timely manner, as it might get lost on eBay... surrounded by the upcoming Optimus cookie jars slated as merchandise for the new movie. EDIT: I'll "end" this auction at June 13th at 12PM. (Wednesday, EST) I think I'll start it at $225 and see who on which Transformers site still has interest after a day or two. Edit: Lowered to $125. I don't have Paypal, only taking Postal Money orders (or cash with pickup in PA.), just so you know.
