    so, eBay prices seem scattered from 50-120, and higher for those that haven't sold (250? really? really?) and BBTS has him listed for 120, so what should I expect realistically if I decide to sell my MIB Devastator?

    Not much unfortunately. I see them not selling anymore since all the news on the new stuff. All Devys are taking the hit, yours more so then most.

    TJD cannot get rid of his at like $65.

    Ebay:
    since you've checked ebay, i would say average those prices, and go with that, maybe 75-80?

    i did, that's where i got the first numbers. but also asking he gets a more real value, as it's what fans will pay. ultimately, nothing is worth anything until someone agrees to pay an amount for it. by looking at eBay, i gain a little idea, then i can come here and ask and see what people here would pay, which is sometimes more realistic. that all goes into how i price items.

    I got mine in a giant lot I bought at Comic Con.

    Have it up for sale for $75

    I think that is the best price on Amazon / Ebay.

    Words I wish more people would listen to. I love how people try to tell you what something is worth. Worth is a relative term. Relative to what a seller is willing to let go of his item for or relative to what any buyer is willing to pay for your item.

    I think how you approach setting your target price is great.

    Good luck. With Classics Devy it's kind of a crap shoot. I just got rid of one for $55 and it took me a month to sell at that price. It did not sell on Ebay twice for $70.

    Alucard is right. This guy took a hit big time.

    thanks man, i think he's still got some value, because anyone who can't afford $600 for a new Devastator might dig this release... i sent an email to BBTS as well, and they made me a pretty decent offer for Devastator, and 3 takara book reissues, so I may just do that, as it's about what i was hoping for total and one nice easy transaction...
