    I'm in the market for one and I wanted to ask fellow board members...

    What is a fair market value on Grand Maximus?

    Any tips for buying one?

    Please post your replies.

    Your input and advice will be greatly appreciated.

    Lately been seeing auctions for MIB ones for $2800. Those prices are way out of whack. I still think you can get one for $1000 loose at least but will have to really dig.

    I'm dreading the day when I have to get him. :cry

    Here may be a good spot to ask.

    What are the differences in

    fortress maximus (takara vs hasbro)

    Grand Maximus?

    RID (Brave?) maximus?

    thanks!

    Fortress Maximus was pretty much the same across the pond, the sole difference is that the Japanese version comes with two swords, a huge one for the big robot and a small one for Fortress/Cerebros.

    Grand Maximus has a different colour scheme with more red and brighter blue, and...umm...the large headmaster unit has a Pretender shell.

    RID Maximus again sports a different colour scheme, with more black and some neon green and drops nearly all the accessories.

    For those going to Botcon 2010 with the goal of getting a Grand Maximus there... How much do you think you'll be spending for one?

    I remember at last years Botcon Bodhar2k brought one with him to sell. It was around $1.7-2k if I remember right.
