    I am selling one currently on ebay complete. Great shape too, but having trouble selling it. Anyone here looking for one?

    If it is complete and in good shape they usually go for 50-100 USD in my experience.
    If you are looking for more than that you may be out of luck.

    Stickers good? No fading? Dusty looking? Good photos?
    These could all be reasons that it is not moving. Course it may just be that people are going to wait until the end of the auction.

    Maybe send me pics of what you've got and potentially avoid eBay fees?

    Don't want to start a KO war, but you can get a great quality MISB KO version in a G1 box with metal components for $80. Maybe that has affected the price? One would think Devastator would go high since the popularity of the movie....I dunno...

    I sold one of mine last week for $80 and I was missing the small guns. If it an open auction, I wouldn't worry. Like others have said before a lot of people like to snipe in the last 20 seconds. Good luck!

    There are just too many "devastator" listings on ebay. You've got all the G1, G2's, Classics, KO's, ROTF, Legends and loose parts. It's hard to sort through them, it's a hit or miss.
