    Wondering how much MIB Jetfires usually go for?

    Basically the toy is in great condition, box is in great condition, however open.

    Any idea the range on this?

    Thanks in advance!

    If you see a MIB Ldr Jetfire for 20 on Ebay, triple check the shipping, lol.

    Personally, i would knock of 15-20 percent of the retail price because it has been opened and played with.
    So for me, considering he is still new and reaching shelves, a MIB Jetfire should be reasonable for $30, maybe a smidge more if you really want it.
    not counting shipping.

    I've seen them go for $200-$300 (or even more) over the years. It really depends on who is buying.

    A complete Jetty (Let alone a MIB one...) used to fetch hundreds easily, lately they seem to hit $60-100 on the open market, even the REALLY nice ones (No yellowing etc.).

    I inherited from my ex-GF a MIB Jetfire, we used to joke about it being our retirement fund, but since the first movie and the general public awareness of TFs has peaked again, the market's become pretty saturated, and it's not the plastic-turned-into-gold it used to be.

    G1 MIB Jetfires are not that expensive. They were 3+ years ago. Can't understand why they got cheaper though. I think you can score a nice MIB one for under 150.

    I would say ~$150.

    ~$100 for one without a box.

    This would be for a good condition, no yellowing, complete.

    I disagree, this is actually the best time to buy stuff.
    Try getting these prices when the economy picks up.
