    Damn, best day and worst day for you. That's the breaks, sorry to hear your loss, and hope you can find a replacement piece. Either way, I always enjoy your posts.

    Gold Plastic Syndrome makes owning BlackZarak a very unfortunate victory

    However, the Cybertron repaint of Energon Scorponok is a homage that doesn't suffer Gold Plastic Syndrome which the original suffers from.

    It's only worth about $20. Maybe $30. I'll give you $40 for him... and you could keep the box even.

    well, honestly, you ruined the "unused" appeal of it, and now it's broken too.

    If you were really worried about the value of the toy, you shouldn't have touched it in the first place.

    If I were you, I'd ignore the amount you paid for it, and don't plan on ever selling it.

    I think you need to sort out your priorities if you have to take a payday loan to purchase a $2000 toy.

    If Tak-Tom do an Encore Scorpy, loads of folk have their fingers crossed for an e-hobby BZ.

    We've been through this before with him :rolleyes:

    ok heres the deal im gonna be honest with everybody in here i bought this black zarak the peg hole on the shield was chipped well i got it here a few days ago so basically he also menchioned to me that that was a mold defect but thats not true that shield was probably jerked open by someone an then reclosed which caused it to break i really don,t know anyway the shield wasint even completely closed so i closed it an tried to re open it an it broke then i had to glue the gold peg back on with superglue which sucks so now the shield opens an closes an the gold peg was fixed so im just gonna have to find someone else that has a gold shield an see if they will sell it to me im not selling this figure NO WAY not after what i went through to get it

    plus at this point the gold shield was chipped anyway. before he sold it to me he said it was a mold defect but it was really chipped as i owned another black zarak along time ago that was broken but shield was unbroken however the first one i ever owned had a perfect gold shield i use to open it an close it an it never broke cracked or anything, that is rare to find so either way im in the dog house until i can find a way to get another shield im gonna wanna go totally bananas after all this spending

    I'd never buy a Black Zarak due to the GPS, no matter what the offer was. Heck, I've heard more then one story from owners who bought it MISB and it was broken inside despite never having been opened before.
