    Help here guys: What is the current going price for a sealed in box, vintage C7.5 - C8.0 G1 Shockwave (american box)? I've checked ebay for comparison but there are no completed (or current) auctions for a sealed one. Thanks for your help.

    I'll buy it for $60. That's $40 more than the going price. From 1985.

    A sealed Shockwave could easily fetch stupid high prices (well, not stupid if you're selling)... loose complete ones usually have been reaching or breaking the $120 mark from what I've seen, so I'd be inclined to say a sealed one could hit something like 2 or 3 hundred, maybe more?

    I just bought a loose complete for $120, and I've seen most loose with box Shockwaves go for $250-350, and I saw and MISB AFA graded one go for $1000 once, so I'd say maybe $500-700 is what an MISB Shockwave might go for.

    Def more than $200-300. I'd say ^ (500-700) is a good price estimate. Loose complete = $70-125, but remember a lot of things can be wrong with him (chipped crotch plastic, hose wear, electronics, battery cover, flip up target, arm cracks, etc etc).

    I agree... if you get it AFA graded, it'll go for the higher price bracket.

    Indeed, be my only hope of ever getting one. Considering all that can be wrong with him when getting one, and the prices he goes for...I wouldn't really want to grab him second hand.
