Good God are you kidding me????

Is it too late to talk you out of opening that? That's kind of something.

I know so. I know Transformers and you have something my friend. Especially if it is in any kind of solid condition. Look it up. Botcon is this weekend in Ohio, if only you could get word there. Don't open it, don't leave it laying around, make sure the other staff know to not mess with it. Check it out online or in Transformers forums. Just don't let it drive you mad or turn you against your friends.

Okay, so is this like the holy grail of transformers nerds or something? I had the local transformers nut look at it and all he said was that it was rare, and to find it complete is almost impossible. He's never seen or heard of one sealed... his estimation was around a grand or so.

I wouldn't consider it a holy grail style thing myself. But it IS rare and almost impossible to find anywhere sealed and in good condition.

To be honest, I don't really know why fans like it so much personally. It's a trainset. To the best of my knowledge, only one section transforms, and that's into a shuttle craft, not a robot. But as Lord Retail and that customer have said, it is worth roughly a grand or so.

Pocket the cash and buy a different train set for 100 bucks! Take the remaining cash and blow it on hookers and booze! It's a win/win situation!
