With Botcon 2010 revealing their Generation 2 themed boxset over the past few weeks, a lot of focus on Generation 2 figures and lore has been popping up. It really came to a head today when Deceptigtar showed me this auction for the very rare G2 ATB Megatron and Starscream set.
I have been trying to get my hands on one of these for a few years and two of them have slipped through my fingers during that time. Now we have one publicly listed on Ebay for a whopping $5,500.
I don’t think I need to tell anyone that the price is absolutely ridiculous. It also brings up a topic I’ve been wanting to cover for the past week or so: what is the most expensive Transformer ever, or even more specifically, is any Transformer worth more than $2000?
My reasonable offer was declined from the seller automatically, so the seller apparently believes his asking price is appropriate. in the end, he price is set by what someone is willing to pay for it. So Collecticons, are any of you willing to fork over $5,500 for some plastic parts in a sealed box?
Oh, it’s also nice to see that the seller isn’t expecting to inflate shipping charges on your $5,5000 purchase – it’s only $9 UPS! HOW THOUGHTFUL!!
I figure I’m going to have to drop USD 1000 for a nice LioKaiser one day, and while I’d really one day like the Dino-Cassettes, I really don’t see it happening.
Yeah that will be tough. Hey.. speaking of Dino-cassettes…
