    Thanks cobra and counterpunch. I'm assuming that the prices you are quoting me are w/o shipping.

    $90-150 for the set? Ouch. *scratching off the want list*

    So $50 MISB shipped is a good price?

    Did you get a look at the quality? I hope it wasn't a combination of these KO's
    http://cgi.ebay.com/TRANSFORMERS-KO...ryZ31392QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

    I just paid $20 shipped for a loose set. Sounds like a fair price since I'm not too fond of the use of the name wheeljack for the US version.

    Is this different from the red/black shield with the mini-tins? And did you mean 12 instead of 120 because I got the shield with the mini-tins last week and paid $15 shipped for it.

    Found the gallery. Colors are kinda bland so I'll pass.

    What are these? The G1 ones? Pics/links? When I first read it I thought you mean a Target exclusive. . .

    You got kind of lucky. The individual sets sell on a regular basis for $40 a piece, which is what I based my price off of. I was surprised to see how tough this set could be to find. I originally passed on it by accident, thinking it was the Road Rage team.

    All of the Emergency team and Air Assault Team repaints. The emergency vehicles turn into blasters and guns, the Air Assault turns to melee weapons. Sorry if the name threw you off.

    Not true. You can pick up the entire booster v1 set for 20-40, don't use ministry of toys prices as a guide as he is overpriced on just about everything. I paid $25 for mine sealed.

    MM-17 comes packaged as its own also and is the same as the one packaged with rampage.

    Do you know anyplace where this is still possible? If you do can you PM me? I've been looking and haven't found it for less than $50 before shipping.

    I do think I was lucky but I think you mean $40 a piece for the minicon AND the deluxe he came packaged with. The one I bought was just the three minicons and their tins. And yeah, I actually passed on this set because I had just purchased the normal red deco. I was so suprised that the set didn't sell when I was checking my ebay page that I did a double look and saw that it was a different color. Contacted the seller and completed the transaction! =)

    No problem. I'm looking for minicons weapons for non-Armada so I only know of the shield, sword, blaster, and prowl redeco minicons.

    For peeps who will soon be competing with me looking for these here are some pics:

    the hardest ones to pick up are going to be your lucky draw minicons-the ice magnus, the black and army green armada megatron and what not.

    i have been looking for an ice magnus forever, and I just found out he isnt translucent blue, he's solid. he is a different shade of blue than the energon ultra magnus, more like a blue green.

    O god. From the info I've just read, please correct me if I'm wrong, Ice Magnus is the exclusive minicon that came with a LE of 100 Ice ULTRA MAGNUS(Overload) in Japan. Where/how was it sold, and please direct me to a picture. O god.

    I don't know if you're estimates there are realistic.

    I haven't seen MB1 for less than $70 on eBay for a long long time. Even the terrible MB4 sells for $45+ on a regular basis...why would the excellent and sought after MB1 sell for less?

    I don't doubt you got your set for $25, but when did you get it? These days the prices are pretty high for these little buggers.

    Yea, you're right about that. I got the Japanese and American one's confused.

    not to jump your thread, videriant, but it's great to see other minicon-focused collectors. :D  my minicon grail of the moment has also been the Fire Saber... i've been looking for a reasonably priced one for years.

    No problem. I've wanted to build a minicon army ever since I got primus. =)

    I've started my mini set slowly but just the past week I've dropped cash on the walmart skyboom, MM-17, crystaltector, CD star saber and booster v2. After v1 I'm going to have to slow down and get the rest at a slower pace.

    The lucky draws and non-targetmaster x-dimensions are going to have to wait until after I fill in the G1 WST's.

    Like I said dont use ministry of toys prices as a guide 95% of these sellers from singapore and china and japan sell their stuff at huge markups. Shop directly from japan, I have bought a ton of stuff at dirt cheap prices, whens the last time you have seen lucky draw items go under $100 on ebay? I won my white moon for $20 usd and the last two that hit ebay were over 200-250. If you look in the right spots you will find what you need cheap. Booster 1 isnt hard to get ahold of and it doesnt come with any chase figures.
