    I'm looking to pick up one of these and I was wondering what am I gonna have to spend to get one? How high have they gone on ebay? I'd rather not get into a bidding war.

    They haven't been selling for $500. Check the completed auctions, they go for $300, with mp-01 being about $200.

    Just be patient & keep searching,
    I was ready to pay around $400 for MP-04 from ebay,
    but I just bought one couple of weeks ago from junkion for $200
