    This is the Black and Silver repaint of TM Tarantulas. I haven't seen any on ebay and was wondering how much it's worth now. Might be looking to let it go soon. Thanks in advance!

    He's only worth about a nickel. But I'll give you a dollar for him!




    In all seriousness, in the only completed auction that came up for me on eBay (here), he sold for $9.99 MOSC. I've seen him go for more than that, but rarely more than $15-18 MOSC recently. (For a while, he did seem to command higher prices. Probably due to him appearing in some BotCon comics.)

    In further seriousness, if yours is complete and in good shape, I'd be interested!

    Interesting you asked that because I picked one TM Tarantulas Fox Kids MISB on ebay recently. I paid U$35.00 plus shipping costs to Brazil (U$10.00) - It´s a great figure for any BW collector.

    Bye!

    These BW repaints are VERY expensive now... I´d like to have Botcon Tigatron but is freaking expensive... So I simply let it go.

    Which ones? Maybe just the Transmetals?
    .... I picked up a bunch of extras of the Cheetor, Rhinox & Dinobot when one of the online stores clearanced them... Haven't noticed them worth anything more than retail.

    I've never seen Tarantulas go for more than $15, but then again I'm not looking for one so I'm not really price shopping.

    ...

    But BC Tigatron is both a BotCon exclusive and the only U.S. use of the X-9 Jaguar mold -- two things that make him so pricey. Not sure what he has to do with the FK & FKTM recolors' prices, which are not even in the same ballpark.

    Bad for me, because I love these BW repaints... I´m looking for an Botcon Apelinq and Windrazor too. If somebody knows where I can find them please let me know...

    I picked up one a while back in June for about $20, MOSC. I think I overbid a bit though, because I had just won a bunch of other things from the seller for a really good price (I'm of the 'buy it all in one place' mentality).

    I want one of these, but can't budget the funds for one right this moment.

    If anyone is interested send me a PM. :)  If the price is right, I'll let it go.
