    $400-$600? And here I was thinking it might be greedy if I list mine for $250...

    When I saw they had Lupus on TFSource today, I'll admit for a split second I was tempted to buy it. Luckily, I came to my senses. I did pull the trigger on a G2 Scoria I saw on TFSource earlier this year for $329.99 and kind of regretted it.

    Yeah. It went fast. Within 15 min after I received the email.

    I am holding out for a reissue that fixes the crappy parts on Lupus like the cockpit that slides loose

    I was asking myself that same question even back when I was a wee lad. Well, I mean, I didn't really know what Hasbro was back then, but I remember standing in the toy aisle staring at all those wild, inaccurate colors and feeling nothing but confusion and disappointment.

    Selling a Lupus for $250? Wait to take advantage of the desperate. I'll buy it, but only to make sure no one else falls victim to such a predatory listing. Seriously, PM me if you're selling it for that and I'll buy it. Only cause I want to make sure that no one else has to pay that price though.

    Are you saying you want to buy it for $250 to sell it to someone else for $250 to make sure someone doesn't have to end up paying $500 for it?

    I would be making the selfless decision to pay $250 to add it to my personal collection. As someone that only started collecting during Covid he was long since gone when I hit the MP scene. I'd hate for anyone else to agonize over if they should buy him or not, and would purchase him to spare anyone else the same hard choices that I'd be making. It would be a heavy cross to bear, but for my fellow collectors, one that I would shoulder willingly.

    Lmao. Lupus was up for $300 at terries last year. I should've jumped on it but I could never track down a bat to go with him. Now that they're actually doing chomp... idk what to do lol. They had better reissue their mindwipe if they do the wolf...

    After hrs and hrs of budgeting, checking sold prices on ebay, creating and pouring thru countless spreadsheets, washing my truck, having "relations" with my wife, reading the entire old testament....twice, inventing a completely new form of thought to text communication app called the "super duper texty app"TM, and taking a poop i have made the heavy decision to make an offer on said lupus figure. I am prepared to blow the last bid out of the the water with my offer. Are you ready for it? You might want to sit down for this.



    $250.01 USD


    Maybe I shoulda put this in blue?

    Nah looks good

    I definitely remember wanting dinobots. Missing out on them but playing with my friends toys. then seeing these ugly things on kbtoys shelves…… and not being able to understand why. So I turned and walked away

    Per their Facebook page, Australian site robotoys says FansToys is reissuing spotter, Lupus and Dracula. Preorders are up.

    Heard rumors they didn't want to reissue this one. May consider.
