    What would be a good price for a Sealed Airazor?

    I am kinda wanting to get this figure and was looking around. But some of the prices... oi..

    Also which would be the more accurate or better to get? The original version or the VHS version?

    And if I was to get one with different writing on it is it legit? It sometimes has stuff like "Beast Wars, Bio Combat" is this just a foreign version or is it a KO? Were KO's of this figure ever made?

    I'd like to be able to get a new, legit version.

    So what are your guys opinions or suggestions? Thanks. :)

    Bio Combat is the packaging variant for some European markets.

    Anyone else? Any idea what a good price is? Original or VHS version? Which one is more accurate color wise to the show?

    Go for the VHS one. It's more screen accurate. I got mine sealed in package last year for $17 I believe.

    EDIT: a good price for a MOSC specimen would be $20-25.

    Yeah. Both the original and the video should be around that price (I think the video one is rarer, but both are fairly easy to get MOC).

    As for your other question, I think that the original is more accurate, as the video one is rather shiny and glossy, but both are still quite alike, and both look pretty show-accurate.

    Well from what I can tell the Video one looks like the parts are more orange and the original looks more yellow? Not sure which would be more accurate to the show?

    Yes, the original is more yellow and much more show accurate. I don't remember Airazor ever being orange.

    Good news is she's gone down in recent years. Airazor sealed went for upwards of $60 for awhile, but now is easily had for the previously stated $20-ish.

    Ok so the original is better to get then the VHS as far as accuracy? And umm... if I get one that says "Bio Combat" or has non English text all over it it's just for other markets and is still legit?

    Yeah, the original is better, but if you can't get it for a decent price or find the video one for a really cheap price, then that one won't be that bad (but regardless, I'm pretty sure the normal one is easier to get).

    If it says Bio Combat, then it's a knock-off. I remember when BWTF had pics of those a long time ago. But if it has multilingual text on it, then it is probably real, but it'd be best to check first.

    EDIT: I'm sorry, the foreign ones actually DO say Biocombat. I think the ones that I was thinking about didn't say "Beast Wars Biocombat", but rather they just said "Biocombat". My bad.

    Ok so the general consensus is that the original one is more "accurate" color wise? And oh... for a moment there you had me concerned about KO's. But yeah it says "Beast Wars" Bio Combat.

    Most people say the video one is the most accurate. I tend to agree. She was more orange then yellow in the show.

    But either these photo's are not accurate or I'm not understanding. Doesn't the Non-Video one look more accurate. It looks more Yellow/Gold like the show then blantant Orange.

    The video one (which I have) is nowhere near as orange as she looks in that picture. It is more of a golden colour and far more accurate to the show than the pastel yellow of the original deco.
    I would offer to sell you mine, but she has been opened and jointed tightened up with superglue. Plus I would imagine you are in the US?

    Anyways, get the video version.

    Could you take a pic of your video one?

    But thanks for the offer. I am not really looking for a non-sealed one though.
