    Was wondering what a MISB Jafcon Prime would run. Found one locally and the guy is asking 200 bucks for one. Good deal?

    That's not a bad deal. I typically see them run $250-$300 on eBay.

    Ebay:
    Check to make sure it isn't a knockoff. The people that made the high quality knockoffs last year also had a jafcon black prime as one of the ones they made-I bought it on Ebay, MISB for 65 dollars-nice figure-you can't tell the difference between the actual real figure and the knockoff so be careful. There is a website somewhere that has posted the differences between the high quality knockoffs and the real deal. I am sure someone on here remembers the website name.

    I bought a black KO prime, and let me tell you, I can definitely tell the difference. My KO prime is a POS. Loose parts, low quality plastic, floppy limbs, etc. Your mileage may vary, but for me, I can easily tell the difference.

    ^There you go.

    $250 is max, unless the box is perfect, then $300

    Yes, absolutely, Jafcon loose is tight and new. The Ko is floppy, I got it and did this to it :D

    Great minds think alike. I also bought my black KO prime to turn him into Nemesis Prime. It makes a nice display piece, but lousy for playing with.
