    Just wondering how much the typical boxed and complete G1 Overlord goes for and or what would be a reasonable price to pay for one. Also any preference on the Japanese or European versions? Thanks

    Not at all; a VERY quick eBay search find there's 3 boxed Overlords right now (2 Euro, 1 Japanese). One of the Euro ones is MISB, and currently at $350.

    I paid $400 for mine, plus a few other things with it. Anywhere from 350 to 4 is par for the course, I'd say.

    Anything over $200 is mythical in my book. Incomplete ones are not worth it, parts are too hard to find.

    I've been eyeballing that Overlord myself, though I just purchased a Sky Lynx and Trypticon in the same day, so I may pass. I fully expect it to go over $400.

    I got mine loose for about $190, missing 3 or 4 little parts (radar dishes). A boxed complete one... it's been a while since I've watched them, but probably $300ish. The guy that does the toy shows here was asking that for his originally, I think he got about that when he ebayed it in the end.

    Yeah, he's going for a lot these days. Plan on dropping around $300-$350 for a MIB one. I was lucky enough to find a MIB C9 one for under $150. He was just missing one of the Powermaster and the rocket pack. But for C9 and MIB, I can't complain for that price.

    And if I were you, I would get Liokaiser's Overlord even though it doesn't come with a box. I saw that figure in person. If I didn't get my MIB one, I would have brought that Overlord. He's worth the money, especially for his battlestation mode.

    To be honest if I'm going to get this guy, I'm going in and committing myself all the way. He's really the last of my G1 supergrails that I need and if I'm going to get him its all or nothing. Which means when I do get him he's going to be boxed, complete, and in decent shape. Not necessarily looking for absolute perfection, but I really don't want to go half way on him. Like I said its really I do this all the way or don't do it, even if it does cost me I would rather get it done right the first time and all in one shot then buy something half-fast and regret it later.

    You sound like me, Soundwave. Yeah, I totally agree with you 100%. For Overlord, he had to be MIB. The box is just so big, it's worth every penny. When I get a chance, I will put up pics of my collection. But for now, enjoy:

    I bought my Overlord for around $330 and I thought it was MISB but turns out it's MIB but I don't regret buying it one bit. Only regret is not getting the Japanese cuz I like the packaging better.

    I'm inthe same boat with Liokaiser. He's that last of my Super Grails. Do i buy him loose, missing a breast partner or go the disance and get one that is 100% complete and boxed, or get the giftset, or buy him piece by piece.

    I never saw much want in overlord, he looks cool and all, but never tickled my fancy like Liokaiser

    I got one 100% for $200 BIN. I DID want a MIB one, but at half the cost, loose, unused, missiles on tree, I caved.

    Good luck with your quest, I myself prefer the Japanese packaging.
