MEGATRON G1 - Worth it or not? Need help!

Postby dioworship » Sat Apr 28, 2012 3:20 pm

Hi guys, I really need some advice as I dont know alot about the pricings of transformers. I live in the uk, and I have been offered a boxed megatron G1 that has all the parts. the stickers have been applied. The transformers token has been removed from the back though.

The price is £150, which is roughly $245.

Does anyone know if that is worth buying, am I getting a good deal, or am i getting ripped off?
and is there anything I should ask, to make sure it's all there, and not a fake?

Thanks everyone, I hope you wont mind helping me.

You mean the robot points have been removed?

I would say that you could probably get Megs cheaper, unless the condition is EXCELLENT.

For that price, it should be very near-mint, figure and box. I think you can get one for less, unless you're a stickler for perfection.

That's a pretty hefty price. I wouldn't pay more than $150.

Like what was said before....it would need to be SUPER minty for me to consider that price and i would still knock it down too 200 bucks.

Does it have to be an original G1 Megs? You could always get a MISB G1 reissue and save yourself around £100.

I really do want a G1 megs as it's not even for me, it's a present for my brother, we grew up with transformers, and always wanted Megatron, so I want it to be really special.
