Just acquired one mib... is he just as valuable as trypticon???
No way.... Well, thats my opinion and I have no facts to back that up but Trypticon should be worth more than that stripped down, big horned version
not even close
well what did u pay for it? im sure u paid market price for it. i would say 150-175 is fair.
I actually traded mp grimlock and bbts seacons for it
Look at how easy this was!
Completed auctions are usually the best way to check an items current price.
Oops, that just takes me to the login page.
But yeah, I've seen Gigastorms go for less than £100 in the past. Might be because I'm in the UK and there isn't enough people who know who the figure is to push his value up.
I have to admit I like the Gigastorm redeco/remold better than the original. Does Gigastorm still have the stuff to walk though?
Gigastorm can walk and he goes for $150 to $175 MIB. I have been looking for one for a couple months now. Trypticon goes for more loose
Last I checked a loose complete Trypticon was fetching $300+ easy. Gigastorm I've seen as low as $150 shipped MIB.
i paid 300 for my trypticon but only 100 for gigastorm. i got lucky and snatched a gigastorm i guess before he became popular again recently.
if it was the US MP Grimlock then that was a really good trade. If it was Takara MP Grimlock then that is a pretty close fair trade. I would say you did alright.
Has anyone noticed any discrepancy in price between the Japanese and Korean versions?
Wow I didn't realize this guy went up that much in price. I got mine MIB a looooong while back for about $60 I think. I haven't really thought about him in a long time, I just keep him in robot mode behind Trypticon (in base mode) to have both modes displayed together.
Back on topic. I don't think he'll ever go as high as Trypticon because he had most of Trypticon's base mode accessories left out. When I originally bought him I was going to buy the Trypticon parts to "complete" him, but they used a slightly different purple on Gigastorm so the parts looked a bit too funny for my taste.
i had one of each side by side...aside from the boxes...they look exactly the same...price wise on ebay i have not see a difference on the few auctions that have come up with him for sale...
he was on ebay quite a while ago with tons of auctions...now he is pretty rare...not popping up too often
From where I am, yes, there IS a difference in pricing between the Japanese & Korean release.
I pick one up for 60.00 a few years ago, so glad I did.
Isn't Gigastorm's gray a darker shade than Trypticon's? That's what it seemed like to me.
Is the Takara version worth more than the Sonokong version?
i sold mine on ebay a few weeks ago...complete but no box or paperwork...put him up for $180 plus shipping...
settled on $169 via best offer....and he was sold in about 3 hours from listing time on ebay till the sale was completed...
with the box and paperwork...easily $200 or more.

I got into a huge argument with some Japanese fans who insisted Korean ones are KOs because they aren't Japanese, therefore cheaper. I did my first (and only so far!) ragequit after explaining SonoKong and still got the same response.
