    Wow. That is a lot of money. But again, I have no idea what an Overlord is worth.

    If they go for $1,000 USD and you paid $560.00, then it sounds like you got yourself a propitious deal.

    Overlord is generally a little cheaper than $560. I'd say closer to the $400-$450 range IMHO. But if it's in immaculate condition it might raise the price.

    I'd say it's a great deal. I paid almost $300 for one loose/complete 4 years ago.

    Good luck with that. As you may or may not know, Black Zarak suffers from gold plastic syndrome. I bought mine back in 1998 MISB and it had it - all I did was place the shield on his arm and the gold plastic around the peghole broke off. The next victim was Guard Minder's (the little car) arm sockets....I still cringe just remembering the horrific event. Anyways, all I'm saying is keep an eye out for it and if you do buy one, leave all the gold plastic accessories in the box.

    from what other people are saying about the price point, looks like you got yourself a hella nice deal.
    A little more than what I'd be willing to spend on a figure, tbh, but still a nice find.
    I'd listen to the others and send a scan of those stickers to repro labels. They would be most happy for those I bet ;)

    Seconded. If you don't want to work with reprolabels, if you have access to a scanner, please provide me with a 300 DPI or higher scan of the sticker sheet.

    I need stickers badly!
