    Need your alls opinion.

    A dealer friend of mine is selling one of his original g1 pieces. He has an original g1 swoop misb. There is no flap crease, still orignal tape sealed and small crease below window as if something was placed on box during storage. The problem I am having valueing it is because swoop, his inner n outer bubble have come off the card. Basically the glue wore off and the bubble came loose. It was a clean release except for one small area where the glue stuck and tore a little of the grey paper off the back of the card.

    So I need everyones opinion on what this item could be worth before I go purchase it. And this item is not a knockoff... its an original and been in his collection for over 15 years since I have known him.

    Thanks

    I glanced around eBay quickly. Here's some MISB on Swoop.

    Generation 1 Transformers Dinobot Swoop MIB Original - eBay (item 290458226796 end time Jan-22-11 21:00:56 PST)

    G1 TRANSFORMER DINOBOT SWOOP ORIG BOXED NO FLAP CREASE - eBay (item 110624971414 end time Jan-13-11 17:07:20 PST)

    Then here's one that's open:

    Transformers G1 Swoop Complete w Box Tech Spec & Bubble - eBay (item 140471675354 end time Jan-27-11 06:20:20 PST)

    So you're talkin' some where between $200 to $300. Although I'm not sure how much eBay prices are inflated and whatnot. Those boxes look to be in good shape. You may want to aim closer to $200 since it's damaged.
