I'm a proud owner of this set. Picked it up a few years back for around $200USD. Worth every shiny Lincoln. The Coby Ramble is just the cherry on top.
Concerning the blue Ramble, it's not just that it was a Japan-only release, but G1-homage-lovers use him to represent Rumble/Frenzy(depending on your RIR/RIB bias) along with Cybertron Soundwave.
The Ramble/Scrapmetal molds are also delightful troop-builders, and make for intimidating swarms.
Was that $200 New or Used Mint? How long ago are we talking? And thanks for your response. Anyone els on site own as well, as far as you know?
Jelze or Counterpunch could correct me on this number, but I think the set is worth about $250 right now.
I'd purport higher for MISB, but I'd have to research.
I got mine late 2008/2009-ish IIRC, MIB. The box was open but the figures had never been removed. Perhaps I overpaid, but I really wanted the set and they were/are fairly hard to come by. (As are most Japan TRU Exclusives, due mainly to the high covet-factor of Western collectors.)
Cybertron/Galaxy Force was a great line by-the-large, and this set is one of its high points. I'd recommend don't stop there, some truly good figures to be acquired. Cybertron Leader Prime, even the vanilla US version, is in high demand and goes for tough money nowadays.
Piss around on ebay and check, you see what I'm talking about.
I told the fire to go **** itself, and it did.
Botcon 2005--Souvenirs Lazerbeak, Buzzsaw
Botcon 2009--Souvenir Sweeps
Botcon 2010--Souvenirs Rapido, Scorch/Shattered Glass Ravage
MISP preferred, but will consider opened NM/Complete, especially for older figures. Lots of TFs for trade! Please PM any inquiries, serious interest only!
