    I saw a TransMetals 2 Rampage for 75 cents. I didn't get it though because the treads where broken, it was incomplete and it didn't have a head. Do you think that was a bad choice?

    hmmm for 75 cents for a broken incomplete rampage... not a bad call to pass if you consider the cost to try and get that figure completed and fixed up.

    You could have bought and stored it somewhere safely. Who knows? Maybe one day you'll happen upon another Rampage who is missing some parts that this Rampage has. Whip out some tools and do the ol' switcharoo and you'd have a complete Rampage.

    As you describe it, 75 cents might be fair for it... but unless you have a use for it, you didn't miss out on anything. Would cost a lot to complete it. And would be tough to sell it because shipping would cost more than it's worth.

    For parts, thats a deal, but as a figure, that would be a stretch for missing a head. It's hard to find heads like that in a parts lot or on the Junkion Exchange. Not impossible, but hard.

    There was a very played with Dragonzord that I was going to get for my little bro (Power Rangers were his time like TF's were mine) at a yard sale yesterday, but I didn't have cash on me (was walking the dog) and I didn't feel like going back. It was a buck.
