    An AFA graded one went for $5000 last year.

    Five. Thousand. Dollars.

    Ebay:
    That $5K does seem exorbitant, but if there's one piece of Transformers toy history that stands out to me as being very unique and special, it has to be Bumblejumper.

    For me, this guy is a lot more interesting than the majority of the other rarities out there, like lucky draws, unreleased G2 stuff, or toys that didn't make it to production. It's an official release of a toy that didn't really exist in the line, on a card for a different character. That's a real curiosity.

    I've got a loose one, but I can definitely understand someone wanting to have a pristine MOSC specimen in their collection.

    well, there are about 56 watchers right now on my auction. i was going to afa this but decided against it, afa is in the doghouse with me right now. plus this guy is in C9.99+ condition and i dont need afa to tell me how good of condition it is in. they have morons working down there, i swear. anyways if it hits over 1500 i'll be really happy, i just need to pay some bills and i can allways say i had it. but on the other hand i've been thinking of ending the auction early too, and just not sell it. we'll see.....

    Hmmm, I paid out the nose for my loose one that is dead mint, about $120 if I remember right. I was the only bidder the whole time then in the last few hours about 50 people came out of no where lol.

    I'm regretting not buying this when the current seller bought it for $710 on Ebay in November. Looks like it's already $20 more and there's still 2 hours left.

    I had this guy!

    I smashed him with a hammer because he "wasn't a real Transformer."

    I was obviously an asshole.

    Man, this was definitely a lesson in how to make $700 double doing practically nothing :)  Congrats to both the buyer and seller. Hehehe.
