for that much money, I'd ask for pictures to check for yellowing. You can fix that, but it'll be expensive.

its all personal preference, some people like it, some dont, but i do feel you on the price, you also got to think if hardtop and payload are included thats another reason it fetches a high ticket, those 2 guys are highly desired among collectors and hardtop sells for around 100 all by himself and payload fetches about 50. so its going to cost you if you want it with the figs. i havnt paid attention to the price of a defient in quite some time but i know they get up there sometimes. i personally think its a cool vehicle but i dont own one.

Put it this way: I would take a relatively high offer - in the $600 range - for me to part with mine. That's how much I enjoy it...
It's a GREAT playset. Forget about "space vs. realism" and all that. The relative amount of detail makes it a fantastic piece of art. But again, that's why I primarily collect GI Joe- for the artistic value and personal nostagia. I just don't play with them anymore but completely understand those who do, and it's cool.
And IMO, the Defiant doesn't take up that much room. NOTHING like my Flagg; that thing is huge!

when i got mine it was shortly before the started doing the star brigade figures. once the second wave came around it was by far one of the coolest playset ever created. i wish i still had it.

I never had the Flagg or the Terror Drome as a kid but I did have the Mobile Command Center and the Defiant.
The Defiant was first and foremost the most fun I ever had assembling a GI Joe Toy. It took me nearly five hours just to meticulously put the thing together. So if you are going to buy one and you are ridiculously wealthy get a MIB one that you can put together.. LOL
The Playset itself is massive. It has a lot of cool compartments and features in the cargo bay including the elevator and other command consoles.
For me I simply LOVED the bridge section. I thought the front of the Defiant in general was the coolest part. I loved the driver area for the Hauler and I super LOVED the Bridge of the Playset. I liked how the command consoles were arranged and the seats were very cool looking.
The Small shuttle was also neat and it has its own cargo bay and crane/arm.
All in all I absolutely LOVED the Defiant as a Kid and I would LOVE to have another one as an adult if I had the space.
That was the one thing bad about it, this thing is so huge and bulky and hard to move. I used to trip over it all the time just trying to get around the thing.
However, I'm a big Sci-Fi fan and while a lot of you DON'T Like the Sci-Fi element in GI Joe.. That's what drew me to the whole property to begin with. I Loved all the Sci-Fi elements even in the cartoon except for Cobra-La.
So To each their own, but I for one LOVED the Defiant and still Do.
A Gem of That Size Answers ALL my questions.

To each collector their own opinion/liking of the playset. I like it because I love space and aircraft. I do agree that it is an awkward piece to display but if you have the room, it looks great. I have one of my own, never been put together, still unassembled in original plastic bags. I am undecided if I want to sell it to purchase a less expensive built one already.
