If it's in good condition, then yes. You could find Calcar for cheaper, but I would say the box and instructions are hard to find these days.

hi all, I am posting this question in the "Questions" thread and the "Price Check" thread.

Since I broke the news that I have acquired a Diaclone "Marlboor" version Wheeljack, I have received a deluge of requests from all over the world asking me to sell this piece.

I received an average of 5 requests per day from people I have never ever spoken to on boards and emails, which I consider a lot because I don't even get a blip of such interest when I post stuff I think is rare like C-350: Rabbicrater, God Primus, etc. Even Minelba only gets the occasional mention or request to sell.

I thought, what in the world? What's with this piece? Is it really that rare and desirable?

With that in mind, I have 2 questions:

1. What is your view on its rarity compared to other rare G1 TFs (eg: Artfire, dino-casettes) and compared to other rare diaclone pieces (eg: blue Bluestreak, white Sunstreaker, red/black Tracks, blue Swoop)?

2. What do you think is a reasonable price?

How much would one expect to fork out to get a decent D-306 Hydra and Buster set?

Seen them for about $500 - $600 I think because its usually around half that for the separate ones.

You should be able to get one shipped for just a bit less than $100.

If you can find one for that price Prowl, buy it I paid approx. $120 for mine from toywiz about 5 years ago. Even though they are well known for their high prices, that was the cheapest I found at the time.

Agree with Valkyrie there. However, i don't think ppl will sell it for that price. It's more likely to go for 750 to 850 online.
