    I was wondering about that, either Ceji or IGA? Didn't look like the standard release.

    Awesome, vilkommen tilbake! (I only know a little Norwegian and it's really rusty, hopefully the sentiment comes through in Swedish :) )

    Yeah, G1 distribution wasn't the greatest in Scandinavia. A good portion of my G1s were bought in Norway, but most were from the later years and over Christmas, so there was more available. My Fort Max was bought there too, and I was told a while back that only 10 FMs were shipped to all of Scandinavia, but I don't know how accurate that is.

    Where'd you get that poster of the European TF:TM VHS box art? That's really cool, haven't seen one before.

    Tack! Yeah Norwegian is pretty close to Swedish :) 

    I don't know how it was here in Sweden I was probably like 10 years old max back then. I think I got in touch with Transformers by the comics first then one of my friends got Cable Tv and we could watch the show on sky channel I think it was called. Then we were hooked and wanted the toys. But i dont really remember anything back then :( 
    Holy shit if 10 Fms was true then you got lucky :) 

    I don't remeber sorry

    Fiddling with Doubledealer, I kind of wish I had his loose parts. Kinda irritating having to manually actuate the buttons on his pelvis for the Powermaster gimmick to enable transition from one form to another without breaking him.

    Never underestimate the willingness of middle-aged geeks to fork over $100+ for a collectible :D  That being said I really have no leg to stand on since if I had the funds these would be bought, bought, bought!

    Hi, I need some advice.
    How to approach a "buy it now" with "best offer" on ebay.

    It all depends on if you think the buy it now option is a reasonable price. This will determine how likely you are to lean toward just buying it, rather than splurging on offers. Some sellers will say best offer, and yet reject any offer that isn’t the buy it now price. These guys are called jerks (the official name I believe) and you’re better off just buying it or looking at a different listing. However, if the seller is reasonable, you can make decent offers. My usual techniqe is to work shipping into the total price, thereby generating one large, round number such as $50 or even $120. If shipping is free, you don’t have to worry about something like that, though:)  Either way, since you only get 3 offers, you should probably use them wisely or you’ll be stuck with a possibly over-sized buy it now price:(  Hope that helps!

    I had a guy who countered me a dollar less than the BIN price (the running value of what he had was about 70-80% of his BIN, which is what I offered). Do we call these folks almost jerks, or are they just jerks as well.

    Most Best offers I've done have been around 80% of the BIN cost. I've seen that anything less than about 60% is usually rejected immediately, so I wouldn't bother if that is what your offer would be.

    If the buy it now price is reasonable, I'll submit an offer for ~90% of the BIN price.

    If the BIN price is not reasonable, then I usually move on to another item.

    Ikea discontinued the brown base ones, so I am seeing if I can replace them with black wood pieces, hopefully CS will be friendly in that respect. I am also thinking of adding some lighting into them
