I might be able to help you out. Are you willing to take Swoop along with him?

Er... yes. I know they're not great, but didn't realise people had that strong feelings. How much d'you want for them?

If he's not, I'm sort of looking for Swoop at less-than-Ebay prices. I know they're lousy, but having one without the other is somehow painful.

Grimlock actually isn't all that bad, but Swoop...Swoop is. If you don't want him, I'll gladly sent him Notabot's way instead.

I'm looking to get rid of some toys like these that I don't have room for to make moving easier on myself in the spring. These two probably would have ended up in the box of stuff I'm going to ship off to my sister's kids to be summarily destroyed...

I'll have to dig them out and make sure they're still in good shape when I get home from work, but probably ~$10 over the cost of shipping each.

*looks*

Do people actually pay over $100 for this set MISB on eBay? That's absurd.

No worries, he's more than welcome.

Sounds good. If you want to drop me a PM with where/how you want the cash?

I don't think so. They're buy-it-nows by speculators. There's a MISB set + MISB Alpha Q BIN for sixty, and the actual finishing prices for boxed sets seem to top out at a fraction over fifty. They just happened to be released at the tail-end of Energon, IIRC. Not really surprising Hasbro didn't decide to order big production runs.

Ditto (despite the dubious punctiation ;)).

But Grimlock doesn't do the splits up to his neck because his legs are tighter than the joints in the torso. :(

How much for the Stormbringer retailer poster (I assume that's a poster of all four Stormbringer covers combined)?

It's the retailer poster. Distributed to stores to advertise the series --

-- IIRC it's that art. I never got around to putting it up, so it's been folded since it was obtained.

I wouldn't mind, as soon as they show up in stores here, I plan to get one for myself anyway. I'm not entirely sure on when that wave is supposed to hit stores though...anyone else know?

He's due in a couple of waves or so. Depending on distribution, that could be anywhere between a month or two, I guess.

Which means nearly half a year hereabouts. :(
