just wondering i just got this figure MIB and i was wondering is it worth more than a normal g1
Maybe more than the TRU reissue, but worth more than an original G1 toy In the same condition no.
I don't think Ultra Magnus is worth much G1, Reissue, and Hasbro...
I remember watching a couple of MIB G1's go for under 100 bucks awhile back.
I just got an open G1 magnus mint missing a launcher and a missile for $40 w/shipping, so no I don't think its worth the same as a misb G1 magnus. Sorry man.
Reissues are generally more common than originals, so they tend to be worth less than a vintage release. It is certainly true of characters like Ultra Magnus where the reissue was quite widely distributed at the time of release - there's a whole lot of them out there.
It is worth more than the US reissue one, though, for being a true and accurate representation of the original toy, not altered in any way to comply with modern US safety laws. That does put it up a bit for those who dislike the huge missiles on the reissue.
With all of Takara's 2010 hype, i'm a bit surprised they haven't solicited a reissue.
The last one was what... late 2000? Early 2001?
Unfortunately, this theory doesn't fit into that darn eHobby Astrotrain which I'm missing for years.
That was never available for purchase during the G1 era. The only grey Astrotrain was a prototype that couldn't transform and who knows how many of them survived after all this time.
I'd love to own that one, the arms even slide out
