    That's nuts. Is this a fluke or is that figure extra popular over there?

    Don't some Alternators go for crazy prices there? Like Mirage, Rumble, and Ravage XK?

    Normal Japanese stuff = rare here
    Normal N. America stuff = rare there

    MISB 10 year old limited exclusive from another country?

    82,000 = 794.01$ US

    Doesn't seem that absurd to me.

    Deffinately a ripoff for that amount! Not picking on your opinion, but if I were going to pay that much for a 10 year old figure, Id buy a G1 Dinobot sealed or so for that amount, +/- a few dollars of course.

    Well it is limitted to 600 IIRC, and only released on one day, in Anaheim California, about 10 years ago :) 

    The price really doesn't seem all that "out there" to me...glad I have mine and don't have to pay that kind of $$$...but still, I'm not surprised. Antagony has always been on the upper end of desirability, probably the best figure of the early Botcon exclusives.

    I think that was just a fluke. If you check, there were only 2 bidders. The next antagony may get off cheaper that that.

    she is commonly a 350+ fig. so i guess her not being released overseas has a big reason for it, but 800+. thats awsome.

    A sealed Bludgeon went for $1000 on Yahoo Japan not too long ago too. Yahoo Japan isn't totally in sync with western TF prices, I guess.

    does anyone know the production limit as far as antagony and vice grip are concerned? whoops, just saw that she had a 600 limit, well, that could be considered lucky draw numbers. I think I may take down my 04botcon breakdown, considering only 204 were made.
