    If I recall there aren't very many at all... Doesn't AFA have a list or something somewhere?

    When I searched MB, or Milton Bradley on AFA's website, the only one that came up was a single carded Constructicon. If you check the serial # from the Dirge auction, AFA's website shows it as legit. That is partially why I am not comfortable going by AFA's search of the Milton Bradley population.

    Have you ever seen another AFA graded MB Transformer by chance?

    My curiousity is getting the best of me :)

    AFAed stuff is mostly US. This is probably one of only a couple, if not the only one.

    But what's so special about the MB variant? I don't think it should be any more valuable than a US release. And AFA 75 is a relatively low grade. I don't think it's worth it.

    The only thing that is different is the box, it's not like the mold is any different or there are different colors(ex black prowl, purple nosecone Skywarp). I mean its rarer than the US version, but to most people unless you collect MB stuff, its not that big of a deal.

    MB's don't pop out when you want them to, they pop out once a year, I say go for it before someone else does.

    MBs seen on ebay for the last 4 years:
    wheeljack - 2x
    bombshell - 1x
    soundwave - 1x (bought him)
    ratchet - 1x

    extremely rare to see MB boxes due to them being limited to Europe, it's misb so that makes it even more expensive and then it's AFA graded.

    yeah, i think the biddingprice is about right but the buy itnow. Def not

    I've held that same dirge and yes it is the only AFA'd milton Bradley sealed TF. Maz has a great article at tf-1.com on milton bradley TF's. Since they were released only in europe they are less common than the american counterpart. However identical except for the MB logo and the languages. Suki41 is an awesome, honest and fair seller. I held his pepsi prime that he has up too and it's a beauty. go for it killa!
