    Hello there once again to my fellow TFW2005 community folks! Tis me WSX here once again to ask one's opinion on whether I should take the plunge and purchase yet another pristine and highly rare Vintage Japanese Victory boxed set. :D 

    Barring price aside, this is not the thread to show off or make myself go on another ego trip and such, but merely justifying the purchase of a very expensive 6 pieces of plastic. Granted, to find one in this current condition is next to impossible, thus this might be my one and only opportunity to finally add this highly desired item of mine to my Vintage list.

    Cheers!
    Comments & critiques welcomed. :D

    LioKaiser is a great piece to own especially in the boxset.

    Looking at this particular one I'm not sure if it's the photos or not but all the white parts seem a tad dirty to me. I believe Leozack's body should be whiter in color than what I'm seeing. Hellbat is missing a sticker on his wing too. Box looks half decent. Are the individual sticker sheets included or have them been applied already?

    I've seen better condition bots and boxes go for less than $1,500.

    Hi man, agree with your assessment.
    l'll have to ask the seller again for stickers/ toy details.
    Thanks for the input, appreciate it. :)

    UPDATE: I can't read. Missed the price in the Poll Options

    No, too expensive. You can get similar quality for cheaper

    I'd pass on this at $1500, but that's just me. Like Sunlink said above, there have been nicer ones for less. $1500 seems high to me for this one. Just my opinion.

    I've never spent that much on one set, but if you have the cash I say do it, you only live once.

    Unless that's way less than the $1000 one linked above, pass. Just too rough for that kind of money. If I'm going to drop that much coin on TFs, I want them mint, I don't care how rare. I have the 6 individuals of Liokaiser MIB and they are awesome :rock

    Those are KO's, although they are excellent KO's, most people want the real thing
