    Wondering how much a complete G1 Thrust would be MIB. I checked eBay's completely auctions but don't really get a good feel for it.....what do you guys think???

    I attached photos of what it SHOULD look like....just picked up off of eBay via "best offer."

    That one on the photo I think about 70 dollar. With insert about 90.

    ^ Maybe slightly less. Classics et al has caused the bottom to drop out of the vintage G1 market a bit of late.

    With a box in that condition 60-70 is a good price for it.

    Eh....I got it for $110. Only other ones I see in the box went for $86 and $150.
    There are complete loose ones for cheaper but the box is important to me. Doesn't need to be sealed but I need the box for display purposes.

    I'd say $80-$100 is fair. Not that $110 is outrageous, but probably on the high end.

    As for the $150 one, the buyer must have been eager to get one.

    I got one last summer MIB figure complete in mint condition with the box in no where near as good of shape as yours for 40 got it auction style though, then bought the bubble for 10. If I really cared about the condition of the box I'd pay more.

    I honestly think with that price it should come with an insert.
    But on the other hand, the box does look nice(but did you notice the punch hole in the middle?)

    Update: The more I think about that hole in the flap and the fact you guys are telling me I paid slightly too much, it bothers me. I actually contacted the seller and told him "hey I paid for it, but before you ship, can we just cancel?" He may actually do it. He talks like he will. If I can cancel this and get a refund I will try again.
