    at this point there is simply no way you can find one for its orriginal retail price. You may be able to find an open one in good condition someone is willing to sell for near reatail, but thats going to be about it.

    So you want a collectible toy that's been out of production for some time at the original price???

    Yeah, good luck with that.

    You might be able to get a loose one at that price.

    Yeah, if you're looking for MISB at retail cost you'll probably never find it. I actually remember that it was closer to $60 at retail, so I honestly don't think $80 is a bad price point personally.

    I got mine for $60 shipped about a year ago. I saw some dude in the Junkion Exchage that wanted $50 for his a while back but it got snatched up quick. So it is possible to get gim for $50+shipping just have to have patience.

    Ebay:
    It was $48.88 which made it $52.91 after taxes (Texas). To break even ~$55 paypal and ~$60 ebay.

    It weights 3lbs to ship so about $10-$12 shipping.

    -----------------------------------------------

    If you want it for cheaper then $75 then I'd look for a used on the forum. They seem to run about $40 for used.
