G2 Menasor appears on Taobao with ALL ACCESSORIES – listed for $30,000

The world’s most valuable accessories, all in one place!

I love the Generation 2 unreleased toys saga and it continues today with another historic offering featuring components of G2 Menasor and the Stunticons.  This time, however, the listing features ALL of the components for a hefty $30,000 price tag.  The last time firepower of this magnitude dropped, the sale went for around $26,000 and hilarity ensued.  The important aspect of that auction was that the purple Menasor head was missing.

Well this time the gang’s all here and it’s on Taobao.  The listing can be found here. I’ve included some of the auction photos for the inevitable time when this auction ends or is pulled.

So are you going to be the ‘lucky’ buyer?

Are these authentic or has the ko market finally created a G2 version of the classics?  Your guess is as good as mine.

Looks like there are a few missing paint apps, but lots of stickers.

G2 Stunticons sell for $26,815 on Ebay – 71 bids – 974 watchers

g2-stunticons-on-ebay-2014

Now that’s some expensive plastic

Starting on June 27, 2014, a rather auspicious auction appeared under the ebay user z75sales: a bagged set of the Generation 2 Stunticons including never-before-seen factory-applied stickers and missile launchers for G2 Motormaster. Just yesterday, July 7th, the 10 day auction ended and the final bid was $26,815.00!  This is an unprecedented amount for a Transformers auction.  Here’s how it all went down.

The seller

The seller is a long-time ebayer who continues to state the same story: He is a broker who is selling a former Kenner / Hasbro employee’s estate sale.  The seller was kind enough to join Transfans in discussion about the items on TFW under the username starwarsprotos, which might give a hint at his history in toy collecting.  The seller was sharing photographs that were not included in the auction and during this discussion it was discovered that the G2 Menasor head didn’t appear to be in the baggy housing Motormaster.  Regardless of this missing piece, the value did not seem to be brought down.

The Transformers

The G2 Stunticons are some of the most sought-after and hard to find unicorns that are out there.  They have a sordid past and every once in a while they rear their heads and make sure we all know that we’ll never have them.  This particular auction was the first time a stickered near-production-ready version of G2 Motormaster had ever been seen.  Other versions that have been seen online were said to be painted samples and not finished toys.  Even the legendary Karl Hartman chimed in to tell a little bit of the history of these beauties.

 

The Buyer

It turns out that the winner was indeed an active fan in the community and known as HighPrime on the TFW2005 boards.  Congrats HighPrime!  According to him, he was on vacation and agreed with his wife to sell a large portion of his collection if he could spend the dough to get these guys.

 

Sorry I kind of petered out on the details of this article and just wanted to get it up.  Congrats to HighPrime and the seller!  Here’s hoping more goodies come out of the mystery bag.

Meet all the robot vehicles of Transformers 4

Transformers 4 is filming as we speak! Another two year stretch of Transformers madness is upon us, and this time, it seems some interested parties have learned a thing or two. Most of the information about the film has been coming directly from Michael Bay’s website. I applaud this effort, and the photos coming from set have kept much to be determined about the plot points.

With the reveal of the new Bumblebee car, we have apparently exhausted allt he pretty vehicle product shots for this movie. The cast looks to be our biggest yet, with over 10 confirmed new transforming vehicles. Have you met them all yet? If not, feast your eyes on the complete (as of now) robot cast of Transformers 4.

Can fan-fiction characters actaully enter the movie-verse? Apparently yes!

Supposedly this is an Autobot named Slingshot, but that information is pretty suspect

A lot of guesses on this one but all signs are pointing to Stunticons appearing in this film, lead by Motormaster

Botcon sets will probably be sold out tomorrow

Time’s a tickin’ for those of you who want to get in on the Stunticon action. I still predict that this will be the hottest Botcon set of all time, trumping the 2007 Games of Deception set. That set was 100% comprised of Decepticons and this one will be as well. Who knew we were all switching the dark side?

So what will the attendee sets have to offer? Who knows…

Botcon 2011 Menasor???

The horror!

Some industrious fans have been busy bees.  This digibash at least gives us an idea of what some industrious customizer will undoubtedly create.
