    Just wondering how much do you think this might be worth, since I have the chance of picking one up. It is loose, has just the launchers, it has a TF swoop head and beak, but he is including the Diaclone head, since it broke the neck, some chrome and paint wear.

    From the looks of it, it just needs to replace the gray "neck" piece. The rest is in pretty good shape, again with some minor paint and chrome wear

    around $60, its loose, broken, missing pieces, and in rough condition, PLUS the market is going to be flooded with Knock Off's in the next little while

    If you can find me one for $60, let me know. All the loose ones I have seen were like $400, but they had all their parts

    The price of this toy in general has just ballooned out of control. A little over 5 years ago they were selling for $250 MIB, then it shot to $400 and now even more.

    I agree that $60 for a loose one would be an absolute bargain in the current climate, broken or not.

    All the best
    Maz
