    It's a 75, but the bubble is crystal clear. I've always loved the Headmaster gimmick.

    Congrats Darren! Clear bubble horrorcons are near impossible to find.

    Yeah I saw a Takara Octane with better grades (85 for the box) go for $800 6 months back, this one really would sell for the same if it went to auction. I have to admit it is a win win concept putting things on Ebay for thousands too much because it's free to do.

    Chefdova hooked me up with this one last year. A really nice looking 75.

    Skullcruncher has always been one of my favorites. I love the colors! Also one of the ones that I think looks extra nice cased up.

    Very nice! You should post a picture with a wide angle, so we can see more of what you have ;)

    I've thought about that, but then I feel like it would just be showing off too much. :p 

    I'm very modest with my collection.;)

    AFA 60Q US Defensor Giftset. This is the rarest piece I own and just had to have it when I saw it go to auction recently.

    AFA 85 Bumblejumper. All 85 subs. Not an easy task. The guy looks beautiful and the Bubble protector that AFA did looks great.

    Anybody know why there are so few AFA Motormasters for sale? I've only seen one pic of him in this thread.

    I checked the pop report and there are at least 30. Do people not want to let him go?

    I know there were a few on ebay recently (first time in a few years) but he is an expensive 80 it seems.

    Motormaster is very difficult to find these days. For some reason, people don't want to let go of him :)  Onslaught however, people let go off easily. Poor guy :D

    Did someone say Motormaster? :p 

    Here's an 80 I just got. Have to thank Iamratchet for hooking me up.
