I created saved searches on eBay for every Transformer I need to get to get to my magic number of 400 with notifications for each new listing that comes up. A couple of weeks ago, I lost out on a Repugnus for what seemed like a great price of $25 with free shipping. Last week, I found one with a starting bid of $15. I won it at $17, which made me nervous. The description stated that it was in good condition, minus the gun, and decals had never been applied. What made me worry was that there was nothing noted on the state of the sparking action and in my haste to get Repugnus at a dirt cheap price I forgot to ask the seller before the auction ended. I won the auction on Monday, the seller didn't ship it until Friday, and I received it yesterday. That was pretty fast. I opened him up and the his sparking action works and he's in practically brand new shape. I can't wait until the stickers arrive from Reprolabels.
When my wife saw him, she asked if he was supposed to be a cockroach. According to her, Repugnus' head is very roach-like. I'm quite impressed with his monster mode. Articulation! The colors really go well together.
I do have a question about the pack on his back. What's it's purpose? Is it a jet pack, a remnant from a cancelled third mode?
