    I have a unapplied MIB Big Powered Giftset. I like to know what such a thing is worth. Can anyone help me on that one?

    A sh*t ton... they're near impossible to find, so an exact price is tough, but it'd easily be over $600... I've been working on collecting the trio individually... I paid $50 for my Dai Atlas, but it was all yellowed with KO parts, but my MIB without Micromaster Sonic Bomber cost me $200... I've yet to get a Roadfire, but the two I've seen were loose and in moderate condition and sold for over $200 each.

    About a month or so ago I was able to get all three boxed, not the giftset, for about $800. All mint and nice. I can't remember where I saw it at but the giftset version went for $1200+ (it wasn't robotkingdom.com)

    "Just about tree fiddy, that's tree dollas an fiddy sents."

    I have no idea what he's actually worth, though I can garantee you it's way more than I would ever pay for him, or any other TF figure.

    1k is a fair price for this, some people will try and gouge others and get 1500-2k but it will be months and months before it would sell.

    The market for these older Japanese TF's in top shape is very fluid. They don't come up for sale enough to get a good track record. $1000 is a fair estimate, but that could easily double at auction. Depends on who's looking and who had money in their pocket at the time.

    I recall Hydra from Black Gears had one up on eBay for a while. It started at $1500 and did not sell so he dropped down to $1200, then $900. I don't think it ever sold.

    BP is worth alot of money due to its rarity... but if you just want to enjoy the three toys, it's much cheaper to wait and find good deals on the three individually... that's what I'm doing. $300 btw/ Sonic and Atlas, and I'm just biding my time for a good Roadfire.

    I think I paid about $800 shipped for mine years ago, and it had the stickers unapplied. of course, I realized when trying to put the stickers on how important it is to wipe the plastic first and not to try this when it's 90 degrees out and you're sweating--half of the stickers peeled right off. had to glue half of them on.

    Yup I remember that too, I remember I saw one end months back for $600-$700. Now the box was not mint but it was still a giftset
