    All depends. Do you feel like you got a good deal? If so, then the price is great! That's how I judge deals more and more. If I feel trepidation before buying or feel sad afterwards, then it probably wasn't a good deal.

    I know the seller. Brought stuff from him in the past. All his stuff are super nice. If I saw it, I would have gotten it myself.

    yeah i felt it was a good deal. I mainly got it for the box, ill probably put the one i have already in the box and sell this one. It was never released in australia so a loose shockwave can fetch $120AU or so on aussie ebay.

    I would love to get my hands on a minty fresh Japanese Shockwave box. I'll work on that task in this summer.

    I saw it earlier and would have bought it had I not aleady bought and MP-2 and an MP-5 earlier in the week (they ate up my TF budget for the entire month). I think you got a very nice deal. That Shockwave looks like it's in great shape.

    Fantastic deal. A loose Shockwave on ebay Australia could easily go for that price. But then again, things on ebay Australia tend to go for batshit insane prices.

    I'd say it was a good buy. I'd have bought it if I had the money, even though I can't make a lot of it back selling a loose Shockwave.

    In my opinion, it is definitely a good buy. I paid almost $180 for Shockwave without a box a few weeks ago. He was mint and in perfect condition, but yours has a box and foam, so definitely worth the $200. He is awesome. Enjoy.

    I've seen one in that condition go for $400.00 at Cybercon. Great deal hands down.
