    I ended up buying mine at $40 a pop.

    What I find really funny is how people can bid so high on an item they could've "Bought it Now" for much less here.

    I'm accually the person that won the bid. Seller was auctioning off his entire TFC collection and i wanted to buy the ones i missed out on. I didn't have the patience to shop around nor buy from overseas. Also the fact that i live in Canada and shipping/customs is not always the easiest thing to deal with. Bought 11 figures at once.:)

    Still, that's a pretty high price for convienience.

    I got an original G1 blizwing from the states a few months ago for about $25USD, and it had the gun, sword and two missles with it, so almost 100%. And it's pretty damn good on the stickers too.

    But if you look at it the way that it will complete a hole in your collection now and not later.... I guess what you want to pay is what you think it's worth for those reasons I guess. :)

    Just some further information on my purchase...
    Kup,Blaster,Astro,Tracks,Sideswipe,Smokescreen,Blitzwing,Stepper,
    Hot-Rod,Soundblaster,Prowl = approx $525usd total or average $47.73, before shipping and possible custom charges.

    I kinda remember my local TF store and a online store carrying TFC for about that much when they did carry them. Yeah it was out of convience as mentioned before. At the same time i was the first bidder on all 11 items, of course i wanted a good deal but thats the way ebay works, where there is a demand, there will be a cost factor involve which drives up prices, No?


    so yup there u have it, different folks , different strokes.

    Is this the only case where the mass release reissues is significantly more than the Ehobby repaint?
