    Hi all,

    How much is a G2 MISB OP worth? Is this eBay auction price realistic?

    I personnaly think it's a bit high. I have this exact version MISB and if that price is realistic, I'd sell it off immediately, for much less.

    250 isn't too high for a MISB one but $400 would be too high for me. Hell both are too high for me. If you dont care about it being sealed decOy13 has one for sale right now for $55.

    250 is way too high for a G2 Prime....
    G2 Prime is going for around 100 bucks and less then 130 on Ebay

    Way too high. Compare:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/Optimus-Prime_W...oryZ4697QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

    I could have sworn I saw one sneak by about 1 month ago for < $100 when I was looking up how much to sell my loose one for.

    Further, it was mentioned in a thread in the eBay section, that picture doesn't belong to the seller, it belongs to some guy named Elvin (others seem to know him). Who knows what the buyer will receive.

    This is really pissing me off. I really regret not watermarking my pictures a long time ago.

    Which ones are yours, Pena?

    I wouldn't pay a penny over 100 for that toy.

    I used to have it when I was a kid but I think I ruined it somehow or another. Stupid kid :(

    I paid $80 for mine like a year ago, but that price for the original auction is extremely laughable.

    If you haven't already, and that auction gets relisted, report his ass.

    I would report him for using your pic Elvin.

    and.. Yes, this is way too much to pay for a G2 Prime. Plus I am going to start watermarking my pics to prevent this type of copying.

    This is his reply to my initial email:
    To which I replied:
    This guy has got some nerve! I did report him, by the way.

    Good show Elvin. My hats off to ya. I hate people who don't post original pics of their items. I agree that this practice is very deceitful, and misleading to the buyer. What's bad is the buyer has no clue of what he/she will be receiving. :(  (if they receive anything at all.)

    Maybe just someone that values what he's selling too much?

    All the comments I read don't seem to differenciate between the north american version and this Italian version (which is what this auction has). Are they similar in price?
