    I found em once in a store for $90 CAD a year a go. Didn't buy it. Thought I'd do it later alongside $100 CAD coneheads. Store went out of stock... Probably actually one of the biggest regrets in my collecting history.

    Yeesh. I'm glad I was able to get most of these guys for fair prices.

    Personally, I suspect these prices are timed around people receiving stimulus checks and wanting to capitalize on those who can afford to splurge.

    I was lucky I scored my blazedash (sideswipe) with all his gear for 30 shipped.
    These prices are rediculous... these figures aren't that amazing.

    I would like them but not at these prices. I guess I'll just be happy with Runabout and Runamuck for half of this mold.

    I'm sorry I hadn't gotten into Iron Factory before these entered crazy land prices.

    It really is a shame IF won't do a small second run on the really hard to find sets. I can see the Dynabots because they sat around forever but Starscream and such they know there is a high demand for. I was lucky enough to get a Headless Sideswipe from a board member dirt cheap and a ghost Starscream for reasonable

    Or they are harder to find now and people don’t want to let them go for cheap. It’s not like they were cheap and plentiful before this mess.

    Yeah, I made some casts from the red alert version. Not the cleanest cast, but it works

    I sold my IF Sideswipe to a board member last year, who then sold it to another. That second member inquired about replacements for the cracked elbows. If you are that member, please PM me

    i think it is a safe bet. it is a US seller so you will have the bots in about 3-4 days. either way if something goes wrong paypal will just refund it. so it is not that big of a deal in my book.

    the only thing i dont understand is why are they selling the same bots over and over in a 24hour period. i think that makes you the 3rd person to buy that same set.

    99.2% is BAD?

    Dude only has 1 Negative review in the last 12 months [for an item that was received by the buyer, just not in the condition they assumed], with total feedback of 3,100 and they've been a seller since 2002 - either you're being sarcastic, or you have impossibly high standards. Why would they ruin a practically spotless 18 year eBay reputation to scam a couple of folks out of $100?

    I think @Chareos will be just fine!

    For a north american seller, it is not great. Is it bad, no. But it is not a confidence builder.

    i cant tell if you are being sarcastic again. for a NA seller i think it is fine and i personally would have no issues buying from anyone with that kind of feedback. especially on ebay and with paypal protection.
