    I have an instruction manual of G1 HeadMaster Hardhead that's in very nice condition, and was wondering the approximate price they go for?

    $10., $12., $20.?

    Like with most things they'll go for whatever price people are willing to pay for them. Unlike say buying a figure, people can easily find instructions online if they need them to transform a TF they've just got loose. Buying instructions is probably really only for the collector, but even then I doubt they fetch much unless it's for a really rare figure, perhaps more if it's someone trying to piece together a MIB set from loose.
    A few months back I got a complete G1 Hardhead figure in great condition, along with his unused sticker sheet and instructions for about £4 total from a car boot sale. Doesn't help you, but I enjoy mentioning it because I'm pleased with that. :)

    most standard manuals go for 4-8$ for common figures leaning towards the 4$, hardhead is neither rare or very desirable so he falls into the 4$ range.

    Just wanted to take this opportunity to point out that, unlike the 2 color ones form 85 and later, the 1984 instructions are beautiful and worth collecting on their own!

    Oh yeah, those 1984 instructions are great. Still got a load of those in my TF storage somewhere. Using them to transform a figure for the first time was like having your joy bundle lovingly stroked with a feather.

    Erm...

    I agree.
    In fact, I collected all of the American releases from 84 to 90. Including the rare gift-set ones like Piranacon. They look great in plastic sports card holders. I'll take a few pics of my binders when I get home from work tonight.
