I wandered past my usual G1 toy shop today and what a shocker to see what they have in stock.
C-114: Fortress Maximus and 2 pieces of C-311: Grand Maximus, all looking like they are in at least C8 condition and very pristine (on the face of the boxes).
Man, this is crazy.
What is crazier is that the shop owner told me that the 2 pieces of C-311 are meant to be sold as a set, together!
What's nuttier is that he's asking for only slightly above half of what these gems usually go for on eBay (and I'll bet the ones on eBay are in worse condition than these).
Since I already have multiple pieces of this mold, I wasn't too interested to look inside. But knowing the reputation of this shop, I'd expect that the contents are also top-notch.
There were other things like a MISB individual boxed Abomunis set, vintage Predaking giftset, Goodbye Megatron giftset, 2 sets of C-347, 348, 349 unused (ie: Big Powered), etc, etc.
PS: I know the shop-owner very well and did have permission to snap those pictures. =)
PPS: Before anyone asks, no, I will not pick up a Maximus for you. Reason is, its too large, I don't have space and I have no idea how to ship something this large overseas. Sorry.
