    I'd love to get that Bruti, but it's clearly not worth that much...

    I would love to own an oversized Bruticus, but not at that price.

    No, it's based on where you live. If you live closer to him, it costs less. If you live further away it costs more.

    I think Ebay's shipping calculator is just messed up, honestly. It always seems to charge people twice the correct price when I use it.

    No way, you must be confused. Those things are rare as hell.

    Hmm...not as big as the ridiculously oversized Defensor that towers over Fort Max, but still huge in comparison with other figures.

    These are quite rare- I've never seen this figure in this color scheme before. Oversized Bruticus KOs are more valuable than a mint, loose Hasbro G1 Bruticus.

    Defensor comes close. But Fort is still bigger.

    I wish imagecave didn't delete my pictures (proof) but yes, I paid $16 (correction- I remembered how ridiculously cheap I paid for it from a Chinatown store that was closing down) for Bruticus and $25 for the Supersized Defensor.

    I was going to paint it to match with the G1 Bruticus. If I could get it out of storage, maybe I could take more pics but it's a good scale to G1 Starscream.

    You got very lucky, man. These did no receive much distribution. Neither did the Oversized Defensor. Even in China, where they originate from, they are very hard to find.

    The seller seems willing to have this one sent UPS as an alternative - which, in his answer to some buyer's question, is quoted as only $15. If someone was seriously interested in picking this one up, I wouldn't exactly think he's full of crap from eBay's shipping calculator alone. I didn't even think Parcel Post would be an option for a toy of that size, rules being what they are within USPS, these days.
