Joecon 2010 Z-Force set - I bit the bullet

Postby the enemy muton » 02 May 2010 22:58

So I did it; other than the :shadow: and :major: this was the only Joecon set that appealed to me. Found a US seller on ebay who wanted £52.00 for the set of three (at least £30 cheaper than the next cheapest seller). Didn't want to take the chance of missing out so pulled the trigger. At least I can console myself with the fact that it is possibly cheaper (or at least easier) than finding original mint :jammer: , :gaucho: , and :doc: :-) .

Some people are selling the :shadow: for around $30 each which is pretty reasonable, but the shipping costs quoted are a bit steep, so I'll maybe email a few and see if they are correct (could just be ebays calculator wildly over estimating).

For anyone else looking at ebay, the prices are all over the place for this stuff; from 'very reasonable' to 'I think somebodies been on the crack pipe'.

Now all I need to do is decide what to sell to repair the damage to my Paypal balance :-( .

nice one! I picked mine up at around the same price - a lot cheaper than others listed at the same time.

I'm just waiting for the dust to settle I think. If I dip out, I dip out. Can't wait to see your pics TEM.

ya the originals are so expensive that I never even considered buying them, so when I saw these guys I was so happy, Now I can have Jammer and Guacho ( with the 2nd looking really different from Gung ho now ) at a reasonable price and NEW !

I will of course post pics as soon as they arrive. Hmmm, I think I know who will be manning the Whirlwinds now. Wild Bill just didn't look 'right' somehow.

So is anyone going for the Q-Force set, then? What about the Staff Car?
