    I know it is late now that I already won this, but it seems cheap for what it is. Any comments?

    I would argue that nothing that costs $360 is cheap, but it seems like a good deal.

    That's easy, because wheeljackslab is a tool/moron and a lot of people won't deal with him.

    I think that's probably the key. While I'd argue that anything G1 in box is still pretty sharp, I don't think this version is particularly sought after--certainly not in comparison to the American release. Still, a nice addition to any collection.

    Wow, I really thought this was a good price if it is as described. The stickers are even still on the sheet. I have a superion that I purchased on ebay about 6 years ago and his joints are loose with lots of sticker wear and I paid about $100 bucks for him. Per the auction, this one is unused with unused sticker sheet and all parts. Once I sell my current set (maybe for $60+) then It seems this will be a good set. Thank you all for your input.

    Hey, if you're happy with your purchase, it was a good one. That's my motto. Not sure? Don't buy! Enjoy! :)

    if it is dead mint bots when you get then it was a fair deal,
    a great deal would have been $275
    and even better if less than $225

    but superion and devsetator are the 2 more common

    now for these expect $400 +
    defensor
    computron
    abominus
    bruticus
    seacons
    raiden

    Like CZ said, Superion is the cheapest in price of all the combiner sets. I wouldn't have paid more than $200-$250 for it. But whatever, what's done is done. Another transformer set you can cross off your list. That's how I see it. :)

    I pretty much stole mine then :D 

    Defensor and superion in 1 lot for under $300 usd
    computron around $275
    abominus around $250
    king posideon $400-450 cad and got a free mint g1 jetfire :D 

    raiden is usually one of the highest same with menasor.

    Gigi is the ital boxset

    Actually, it is just Gig, and Gig was the distributer of Transformers in Italy. Just like in the USA, the Pentajet giftset (Italian name for Superion) is quite a common giftset. I think this is the most I have ever seen a non-sealed one sell for. Granted it is nice because the stickers are unapplied, but I don't know how the seller justifies calling the box an 8.5 when there is something cut out of it. Just my 2 cents, but there was nothing cheap about this set. This piece was very over-priced.

    What's worse is that he has another listed in pretty much the exact same condition with a buy it now of only $300.
