Classics Actionmaster Starscream – custom to go with Botcon AM Thundercracker?

Classics Action master Starscream custom

Wings, dear God he actually has WINGS!

Deceptigtar sent me an awesome custom from yahoo Japan today.  It looked so good I almost thought it wasn’t a custom!  It also made me think that this would look super cool next to the supposed Action Master Thundercracker that has been rumored for Botcon 2011!

Enjoy the pics.

I'm dreaming in green

Well so much for winning the deluxe Starscream.  Ending price on Yahoo Japan topped $600 USD.  Good lord.

So fresh and so green, green.

An exceptionally fun and rare piece traded hands recently on Yahoo Japan. The Lucky Draw Black Micron Legend Megatron was sold this week for 100,000 Japanese Yen. Congrats to the lucky winner and the seller!

With almost 50 bids, there was definitely some heat on this auction.  Just what will we find next?

Generation 2 ATB Megatron snags over $3500 – again!

Transformers Generation 2 Unrelease ATB MEgatron and Starscream on Yahoo Japan

Shiver me timbers!

I made a special note to wake up today. Not for my job interview, but instead to make sure I put my final bid in on a special rare item I recently found on Yahoo Japan. The alarm buzzed but I paid no heed, until I woke up to find what the alarm was for: I had missed the end time for a MIB Generation 2 ATB Megatron on Yahoo Japan!

If I were ever to get a decent price on this guy, snagging it under the radar from Yahoo Japan was my chance, but I had missed it! I rushed to my fancy new laptop and checked the auction as my heart sank. The auction had indeed ended. I scrolled down and my grief dissipated. The end price was 332,300 Yen! That’s over $3500 USD! Now I don’t feel so bad for missing the bid because there was no way I was bidding that high!

I will probably never add this special piece to my Starscream collection, for even this Collecticon has his limits. Congrats to whomever was the lucky buyer though!
