    Default Transformers Holy Grails and Loose Ends

    from the old board:

    "There is one _really_ uncommon holy grail for me, although I never really bother looking for it now - the late Japanese G1 set, Battle Gaia." - dirge

    Well, I've finally found one on eBay... item number 250185845983, and this thing looks brand spanking new. Having said that, it'd cost more than what my car is worth (admittedly not that much!) at $US1797. But I've finally seen one


    LF:

    - MyClone Dirge
    - Blue Microchange MC-04 (02) Familia 1500XG (that's the pre-TF Bumblejumper)
    - G2 Grimlock (turquoise or silver)
    - Car Robots Indy Heat
    - Unite Warriors Strafe

    I want it... but I'm not going to buy it. I can't justify spending $2000+ on a Bruticus repaint!

    It is a *lot* of money to pay for a Bruticus repaint, and there have been a few of those.

    Also, it seems the set doesn't include Brawl's double cannon.

    My Holy Grail is Liokaiser, and is likely to continue to be...

    Depressingly, BB08 is becoming one as well.

    Ooh pretty. But I would have been more interested to see what the current value of it is by having it listed as an auction instead. Sure, it might sell, but that only means there is at least on desperate fan out there with too much money. Or it could hide the true number of fans prepared to pay more than that.

    The original Bruticus had the best colour scheme imo. All the repaints have been inferior and this kind of price is just ridiculous. Think of the dozens of great tfs you could buy for that amount!

    Pipesqueak, this is exactly why I won't be purchasing this grail of mine. Yes, it's the only one I've ever seen on sale and, yes, if I wanted to, I could fund the purchase. But I'm not buying Combaticon repaints at $400+ a pop, no matter how nice they are (and, aside the from the originals, this is the nicest colour scheme IMO).
