    well, the box looks like it might be the best condition trypticon box I've ever seen from that picture.

    but, the seller says "near mint in box". what's "near mint"? the figure? the box? he doesnt say the box is sealed. is it sealed? if not, why arent there any pictures of it's contents?

    very good deal. A complete one will run you 150$, A box in that shape is very hard to find. If he let it run for auction woulda ended around 300$

    40 bucks for shipping, so 240 for a really nice MIB tryp, i'd say this is one hell of a deal.

    I've been reading the Ebay section of this site for awhile, after I saw this topic-I had to register. This is the first opened Transformer I have ever bought, I'll let you know how it looks when I get it. You should see the other stuff he sold for dirt cheap!!

    Trypticon showed up today, It is in very nice condition. Much better than any other I have seen for sale. There are a few nicks, and flaws here and there on the box. The toy itself looks minty. I am guessing because of the sheer size of the box,(HUGE!!), it is near impossible to find a perfect one.

    Very nice for the price!!
