    a fair bit I've seen a few over £200 (about $300+). I'm not sure if they sold at that price tho

    I love that damn toy. I've got all three versions. I was really surprised to see it become the next Ghost Starscream, value-wise.

    Ive been watching it, and last night the same bidder who was winning at $350 put 4 more bids to cover himself. It was listed as a private bidder, but when I saw it, there were 5 bids in a row for $350, which means he was up bidding his previous bids.

    But If I could see that, so could a shill bidder...

    I can't remember how much i sold mine for but whatever you do, DON'T OPEN IT. My Astrotrain had a ton of problems with paint chipping around the train front right out of the box.:2c: 

    What its going for now is nuts... I remember buying it for 50 bucks way back

    For a while I was going to buy him, but after getting the re-issue white g1 astrotrain and the classics astrotrian right around the same time I realized that I really didn't care for the ehobby version as much as I thought I did. I guess I am surprised how much the price has continued to rise all this time.
