    Came across this and was startled by the price:

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI....m=200196308723&ssPageName=STRK:MEWA:IT&ih=010

    It's a great set, one of my crown jewels, but is he really worth this much? I got mine about two years ago for significantly less, about £100/$200 shipped.

    This one's box is a bit beat up, and I don't see the stickers (though they could be under the instructions, or have been applied).

    It has been going up in price, I think. But $750 still seems way too high, especially with the box in that condition.

    That is WAY to high for that, I have seen a few sets go between $300 and $500

    As I said I was rather startled by the price, since the movie all versions of Megs seem to have increased, but not by this much. $300 to $400 sounds fair to me depending on condition, box, used/unused etc. I've got no intentions of selling mine, it's firmly in my 'Only to be sold if I can't afford food/shelter category'!

    Yeah that's over the top.

    Straight G1 Megs and the TFC reissue have been going down in price for the last several months, presumably because of the Encore release.

    I think the price for this item breaks down to this:

    $100 Megatron figure and accessories
    $150 Microman Box
    $500 Microman Foam box

    That sounds about right.

    Ok, I'm wrong ninety....

    Seriously...
    $600 for the foam box.

    I'm telling you, custom foam boxes for G1 stuff is a BIG Lucrative business!
