    It's this item, MISB.

    Also seen here, but I highly doubt it's worth that much.

    You are right about that. Check out the TF's on sale at his/her ebay store. Talk about overprice.

    If I really wanted it, I would probably pay $65 MISB. $45 loose.

    yes thats a bit much seeing as most of the value is inthe prime as overload isn't very desirable

    This is one of those items that I regret passing when I had the chance to buy it. On topic, that is too much for that, though there is an "make on offer" option. :p

    Actually, that price was a normal asking price two years ago before the economy tanked. MISB on that item is pretty rare. I bought mine loose for $70-80 and the price has varied around there. The figure's only worth it to minicon-completist though.

    Would it be worth holding on to for a little while then? I'm not trying to price gouge, considering my primary goal for unloading this item is merely to clear up some space around the house, but I suppose it wouldn't hurt to make a bit of coin at the same time.

    Honestly, I don't know why it's even in my possession. I was tempted to open it during a buying dry spell, but the thing's just so damn ugly.
