    nothing over $50, I say the toy is worth maybe $15-$20 and the box the same depending how good each one is.

    I would think Darkwing is more as it is common he breaks.

    There was this nut at one point on ebay that bought EVERY single Dreadwing that showed up. He may still be doing it...

    Those are BIN or store listings that have been around forever and don't really reflect their actual value.

    I'd say $30 for the figure and $20-25 for the box (if uncut) at the most.

    when I get him I would prefer him to be mint or near mint. wish I were going.. I could get it for much cheaper than the shitty ebay prices.

    botcon should be your best bet, I found two last year for 4$ and 7$ one of them had the standard broken hinge,but after about 5 minutes of fiddling I had hm good as new :)

    I would ask someone to get one with a box if it were a good price... but that is asking alot! I might have to find a friend that is going and have him look for me.

    just look in junk lots. you'll find a perfect one for less than 10 bucks all around. ive gotten several dreadwings and darkwings in the past year on my ridiculous quest to complete 5 predakings while i was in iraq. i ended up getting frustrated and put all that stuff back on ebay in junk lots haha. for far less than i bought them too, but i completed a roadbuster! one of my all time favs so its not so bad after all:)  and i found actionmaster rad. but back on subject, yea man theres tons of them in junk lots.

    I will look around for you, but I myself over the years with toys have purchased fillers cheap and worked on making them complete. Then once a deal comes along I upgrade and sell the filler. Just a thought to save you some cash in these hard economic times lol.
