    Go find a box better than this to put the guts in. This kind of auction attracts a different type of collector, so come on guys, lighten up,to each his own-right?

    huh huh huh.It is in the middle of the week I'm sure alot of people are having bad weeks we gotta pick on somebody to lighten things up a bit.Besides you know you agree.Would you throw down that much on a K/O box?I sold a dead mint TM Cyclonus complete and only fetched $89.00 for it so you do the math and please join the band wagon.

    I see what youre saying about the middle of the week LOL, but there is no KO box for the TM cyclonus. And if I had sealed guts, I might toss alittle bit of money on a really nice box.

    This guy had this auction before with a starting bid of $199. I've seen a targetmaster Scourge box in this condition go fo $75 on ebay. Although I need this box, there is no way its worth that much to me.

    Where my Killa tape at???...:) 


    Alright, I guess I'll try to explain my point-of-view on the auction BIN price.

    I don't expect anybody to be in a hurry to click the BIN, but this box is a truly difficult piece to find in this condition. Did anyone notice the "Best Offer" option is available?

    As Malach Ra pointed out, this type of item would only be considered a valuable asset to maybe 5% of the collecting community. I have actually offered $500.00 for a Targetmaster Box to a member of the TFW community, and was turned down.

    It is a known fact that boxes for the rarer toys in excellent condition are nearly impossible to find, minty loose toys....not so much.

    Gadep...What do you think I need the money for?

    PrimulArchangel....Just the fact that you would assume it is a KO illustrates the condition quality of this box, and a couple other things:) 

    Backstop...I am motivated to sell.... for the right price.

    Hybrid Prime...That is pretty cheap for a minty TM Cyclonus. A high-grade box is actually the toughest component to track down for a minty MIB/Gradable piece.

    Jason Blue Boost...That was a great deal for TM Scourge box in comparable condition. I have heard of MISB G1 Megatrons selling for $200.00 on Ebay
    in the past, but have not been that lucky myself.



    I have it listed for what it is worth to me. I am a Decepticon Targetmaster fanatic.

    I appreciate the interest.....Thanks!!
