    Hey guys!
    Does anybody know the current worth of the abominus Italian giftset, also known as thundertron?
    The one I'm trying to evaluate is 100% complete with insert and instructions, stickers applied and box in c7 condition.
    I know he's kind of a holy grail for g1 collectors, so if anybody can help I appreciate

    If it helps your research any, i think the box reads "Tundetron" (no 'H')


    I'd hazzard a guess at $500+ (?). I may be too low there, but i think it's probably the rarest Hasbro gestalt set of the lot, and a good bit rarer than the Gig Bruticus.

    500+ probably was too low. Although i think i did allude to not being an expert on prices.

    Because it's in used condition I'd say around $1000 - 1200 as an honest offer. I can't see anyone paying around 2000, only if it's unused. Obviously you wanna lowball a bit and get as cheap as possible :ev:  Take your chances and offer around 600 - 700 if he doesn't know how rare of a figure he has. If he does know then obviously he'll decline straight away.

    $500 for that Bruticus set is a steal.

    feel free to drop by anytime :p  that is a part of my collection on the attachment and that abominus giftset would surely look good there :p  but my budget is only about 700€ so my chances are pretty slim :s
