    I recently sold mine that was in excellent condition I would consider it MIB for $180 range. It did include the box with styrofoam and paperwork. That price of $140-$160 would be a good deal.

    I know for a fact that that you cant get a MIB one for under $200 unless you get lucky.

    I paid $150 for a loose Shockwave in good condition, so $140-160 loose sounds about right. For a MIB...yeah, $200+ also sounds about right.

    my uncle gave me a shockwave he bought at a garage sale for 3 bucks.....

    only missing the battery cover, nice hose, and electronics all still work perfect.

    but yeah a mib I havent seen sold online under 200 in a long time.

    even junkers usually fetch 65 bucks if they have some of the important parts.

    Got mine a fw months ago, without box but in fantastic condition, for around £60 (about $120 at the time).

    The electronics work, the crosshairs are there and the rubber tube is in great shape. Maybe I was lucky.

    I recently won one cheap at $56.00! The seller refunded my Paypal immediately upon receiving my payment and then relisted the item the same day at Buy-It-Now for $149.99.

    Beware eBay seller: 210christine214 She claims that there was a glitch on eBay the time her auction ended that didn't allow other bidders to place their final bids on her Shockwave. I think that's her language of stating she didn't get to shill bid her item back up in time before it ended.

    G1 SHOCKWAVE TRANSFORMERS 100% COMPLETE + INSTRUCTIONS! - eBay (item 160300530335 end time Nov-30-08 09:22:07 PST)

    Are sellers allowed to do this if they are unhappy with the final selling price?

    NOPE... that's why there's a thing called "RESERVED". She should have used it.

    NEG her.
