    Hey everyone, hoping someone can help me with something

    If this is the wrong place to post it, please move it

    I have found a mint never opened Sky Garry in a store here in Japan for roughly $190.00

    is that a good price ? seems like it is but for not sure

    any help appreciated

    not for sure If I want to buy it though, it would be for my boy and not me

    if I dont, does anyone want it ? just have to pay for shipping from Japan

    Yeah, that's not bad at all. There was a fair sized case find of Sky Garry's two years ago which flooded the market: most internet retailers got hold of a few. I bought mine MISB from BBTS for $200.
    Back then, I did see a couple go for less than that, but currently, $190 seems a pretty fair price, considering most of that case find probably found new homes in the meantime.

    Seems a little on the high side.

    Market was flooded with him and he is a litte harder to find now for a good price, but u might want to shop a little first, including ebay and members sales here.

    Yeah the ebay one at least for me would be more expensive as I live in Japan and can just pick it up at the shot

    But 100 bucks from someone here sounds great !

    Did you just post something in the want thread ?

    Was it still sealed ? never opened ?

    Shipping will always be your bane, from USA to Japan is never on the cheap side lol

    Yeah, I payed $100 or $110 for mine within the last year or so from a member here. Seen a few others go for that or maybe 15-20 more. IF the glut of Sky Garry's dried up, prices will rise no matter what.

    Also if u need anything USA release, let me know and I will try and hook u up. I wouldn't mind a friend in Japan being a Transformer collector and all lol

    yeah especially since the USA stopped shipping by boat a few years back.

    Japan will still ship by boat so its a wee bit less expensive shipping from JPN to the USA but still expensive for sure.

    Thanks for the offer on the USA release stuff, will let you know if anything comes up for sure ! and yeah if there is anything I can help with on the Japanese front LMK ! Ill do what I can ! I usually come back to the states every spring for a month or so, Got a Vacation home in Florida, about 2 hours from Disney World.
