    No gun, handle in boom box mode broken. The guy wants 40 for it. How much would be a realistic offer for it?

    Missing gun and broken? 10$ or lower or pass.

    At that price I'd go for the reissue which I've at 40$ cad.

    40 sounds very reasonable. I'm guessing there's no box or anything else?

    Ebay:
    $15 or so

    Tape deck doesn't work either probably but that is an easy fix

    If the handle is broken, $10 is pushing it. The guy probably wouldn't take a reasonable offer if it's so far below the asking price. You're better off looking for one in similar condition on ebay.

    isn't fixing the tape deck on soundwave/blaster a complete ballache, requiring a doner toy, an electron microscope, three arms and several scientists on standby?

    $40 is way too much.I just sold one in what sounds like the exact same condition for $15.I wouldn't go any higher than that.

    I bought one a few months ago in really nice shape(minus the gun) for $20.So there are much better deals out there.

    No gun and handle is broken = $20, $25 tops if you REALLY want it...I wouldn't bother with it. Trust me, you'll find better ones at that price.

    I'd rather not buy a broken Blaster. He has little articulation to begin with

    Sad that sounwave came out first and is such a better toy. Larger toys should be designed better and have better articulation. I had wanted to get the sdcc set to match up with the sdcc soundwave set, but then I saw the blaster set at a local comic store...easy pass at anything above $40 for the set because of how dumpy blaster is.
