I was in Parra today so I decided to pop into Sheriff's Mini Cars. I was looking for that Binaltech Jazz but I couldn't see him anywhere.
Anyway, the back section where they have their sci-fi stuff (including TFs) on the floor was a boxed G1 Metroplex
The box looked pretty ratty & how much did they want for it? $400
Bloody hell, I didn't even bother checking it for missing bits & pieces (It's a given that some things were missing).
That's the first time I've seen an actual G1 in Sheriff's before. Even their Beast Machines stuff seemed to be jacked up in price compared to the last time I was there. $400 for a boxed Metroplex? Boxed Fort Max's go for $500 odd on Demonbay and they wanted $400 odd for a smaller & not nearly as cool cityformer? Damn Scalpers.
I hope that Metroplex sits there & rots for all of eternity - it'll sure teach those Scalpers at Sheriff's a lesson.
