    I imagine a loose one would fetch at least $200-$250. They don't pop up frequently on eBay.

    Not me. I never liked his light gray, especially when Blitzwing was spot-on the same colors in the show. I do like the US version more than the Japanese white/black, but the Anime/catalog deco is best of all! :D
