    Hmmm, interesting find. What's the going rate for a boxed, complete set? Also, is Blastoff supposed to look that "yellowed?"

    Ebay:


    $800-$1200, depending on whose crazy that day. Shuttle Gunner is supposed to be white, but that should be fixable with the proper yellowing cure.

    Ah, thanks. Not sure I would feel comfortable trying to cure the yellow on that toy. I'd be afraid to ruin it. There certainly can't be that many Battle Gaia figures floating around.

    I thought the shuttle looked a bit yellow. Anyway he is incredibly hard to find though, much harder than guard city and I wouldn't mind blowing a 1k on him if I had the money.

    As a long time japanese collector I've seen prices for a lot of MIB japanese stuff go really high lately. I watched a MIB Grandus go for $1000 recently.

    Goodness. Someone must have wanted that very badly. Makes me wonder if some of the new TF collectors (ones that started because of the Bay movies) contributed to the high price.

    coptor limb reverb,
    tank limb gunbarrol
    fansprojects munitioner and explorer sets

    its repaints warcry and flameblast

    energon storm jet for the breast plate

    and 2 sets of plug socket connection points to attach skyblast and the missile cannons wepaon pack to this odern day battle gaia with

    the plug socket rear shoulder parts being salvaged from 2 parts figures energon barricades/rotf classics onlsaughts

    a bit of paint here and there to finish the colorscheme for each figure and the combiner form and your done

    que?

    a) You realise this is G1, not "CHUG" (god I hate that term!)
    b) Even if you were to say the same using a cheap Bruticus, some people like the originals. Who are you to judge what people spend their money on?

    ^$1,800 for that BIN auction for Battle Gaia = :eek: 
    IMHO a thousand smackeroos would suffice.
