Anyone else pick up this Toys R US Japan exclusive? I just purchased recently and now wonder if I got suckered with the "Rare" aspect of it. So is it all that rare? Does anyone else own it?

It's more difficult to find than anything else. Not everyone wants to part with theirs cause it is a pretty cool set..

I need one though. If you decide to part with it, let me know.

So not rare but rather highly collected?

I think. There are others that are more well-versed in AEC than I am, but the main reason it's so wanted is because of that Cody. That set is the only way you can get Rumble with the robot head that isn't bug-like.

It's still a TRU exclusive in Japan so it also has that behind it. I wish I knew the production numbers, but as far as rare is concerned, there are definitely rarer AEC figues out there if that makes sense.

That makes sense. I saw this variant of this mold, blue scrapmetal go for almost $100 shipped on eBay.

What's so special about this mold? Excuse my ignorance.

The US only got the Red and yellow versions. Blue is rare cause it's Takara only.

I still need the blue one myself.

Seems like a price gouge to me. I doubt anyone will buy it for that price.

So do I. I hope Sonokong has released a blue version for their Galaxy Force line in South Korea, same for Sonic Bomber.

Trivia: the version of the Sonic Bomber mold used in that set is the tweaked Hasbro version. The original Takara release had a misaligned nose guard on the head mold which was fixed for the Hasbro release.
Top 5 Priorities:

1) BW Neo X-7 Elphaorpha

5) BW Convobat (red) & Megalligator (purple)

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. :-B
I told the fire to go **** itself, and it did.

Rijie Seeking:

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!

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 purchased mine for $150.00 complete, mint, displayed only. After reading various post, wasn't to bad of a deal. It truly is a bling of a display. Thanks to everyone for your feedback.

The price has been steady for the past years as far as I can tell. Back in 2005 I saw him at a convention NIB for €200 or $260. Too rich for my blood.

won't dare try to guess how rare or valuable it is, but it does look like a damn nice set, even without the exclusive Scrapmetal guy. Congrats on getting a hold of one!
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Ramjet, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party Motobot Arcee, iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.
