    Is it the Walmart MP Skywarp or the Japanese release?

    Not for the prices Bruticus goes for. MP Skywarp is pretty easy to find and the US release has really dropped the value of both versions, IMO.

    Rotf bruticus is probably worth 3x more than skywarp, so I would say not even close unless the person with skywarp threw in some cash to even it out.

    No. Bruticus can go for alot of money, more than a MISB Takara Masterpiece Skywarp!

    U.S Skywarp is common. You should just sell ROTF Bruticus and you'll get alot more money for Bruticus than U.S Skywarp.

    Doesn't matter if you don't plan on getting the upgrade kit, it's still a really bad trade.

    Bad deal. Bruticus goes for a lot more. Mp skywarp is really cheap anywhere and there will most likely be a new version out of the mp 11 mold.

    As others have said, it is a pretty bad trade. ROTF Bruticus can command a pretty hefty price so I'd suggest selling him. If you are dead set on trading then make sure the other guy gives you some other stuff as well.

    Bad trade, do not do it.

    Thanks to Fansproject the price for that set and all other versions of it have skyrocketed and have stayed there despite the kits being virtually sold out and only available at sky high secondary market prices.

    as others have said sell Bruticus and using the money to buy MP skywarp and then some.


    if you are going to go ahead with the trade get some cash or additional items to equalize the value.
