    Depends on condition of both box , insert styroframe, papperwork, and of course the bot condition for example sticker wear and electronics.

    Even MISB, I wouldn't pay that much for Trypticon. Pass.

    It seems pretty fair. Does the price include shipping?

    I'd say it's a pretty good deal in that case.

    You're absolutely right. But he's $150 great, not $300 great.

    I paid $110 for mine, 100%, MIB. My box is C6-7, so it's not the best. Everything else is mint.

    If it's in pristine condition then maybe it's worth the $285, but it still seems pretty steep to me.

    He's been topping out, for the most part at around $200 complete, but if it's with the box and sticker's unapplied including shipping...it might be worth it.

    285 is a good price for stickers unapplied, paperwork and MIB Box. as long as the box is nice and styro is white. FTW

    Well if its MISB and the plan is for it to stay that way then you have found a deal if the price didn't scare you away. But if its out the box so that you can play I rather do it piece by piece and save some $ any day.

    I keep hoping for an Encore Trypticon. We got the big boys from the 'Bots, now we need the 'Cons!

    I got my Trypticon loose but 98% complete for under $90 including shipping. The figure and accessories were in great condition but it was missing the box. That price for your auction seems a bit too high in my opinion...
