    What's the price range for a vintage copy of the G1 Devastator giftset instructions? I can't find any for sale on the various websites that sell vintage G1 or on Ebay.

    Thanks.

    The giftset instructions include the individual instructions for each constructicon. They're similar to what was printed on the cardboard backing of the individual bots, but they're in paper form like a normal G1-style instruction. Four bots are on the front, two on the back. The back also includes instructions for Devastator.

    The ones on Transformerland are the inserts that came with each individual constructicon.

    Giftset instructions usually run about $15 to $20 but they have been repro'd so you can get them cheaper but beware, you might get a repro.....

    Thanks for the info. I picked up a lot containing this and 5 other instruction sets for $12.50. I was hoping the Devastator instructions would help me recoup most of my cost for the other 5, and it sounds like I was correct. Thanks again.
