    I was originally hunting for this one http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewI...W:IT&ih=009 but slipped in the last second.

    I then fell back on another one i had ask about - the seller had had two up for sale. This one http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewI...DME:X:RTQ:US:11 (went very cheap) and then the following one. I asked if it was bone-white but he said "not bone-white" so if it's white is hard to say, but the box seems to be in a fair shape, and it's a rarer bi-language box. To me it's looks pretty white though. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewI...N:IT&ih=015
    So in utter despression about the first lost auction I placed a max bid of $185 with a take it or leave it attitude... never thought I'd end up taking it though since it originally had a "buy now" tag of $300.

    But I'm not sure... did I bid too much for the bi-langual version ?.
    I'm also still awaiting the final invoice from the seller.... wondering if he's going to sell it for that price.

    I'm still on the evergoing hunt for a mint bone-white Jetfire that I'll be able to afford... yea I'm a sucker for jets in the danish national colours and which can transform to robots.

    Hmm. I'd say you got that for a very good price. Congrats.

    Not bitchin' but you know that as soon as there are variations in this out of the standard it's either price down or price up, and I really wasn't sure with this bilingual example.

    I don't know about the comparative rarity of the bilingual box, but I've seen LOOSE Jetfires in that condition go for more than what you paid. Good on ya!
