    Hi everyone. I ran across a MIB Brave Max from a guy that I deal with regularly. I was very interested until he priced it. I about pooed myself. I know these have gone up lately, but, dang. What is the going rate on this guy? This is a person I deal with regularly, so I'm sure that he wasn't gouging me. Just curious as to if I'm gonna regret not buying one when they came out even more. Thanks in advance.

    It's a good price. you might be able to find one cheaper, but once you factor in shipping, the prices will be almost the same.

    I have no idea what this means.

    I'm glad I got one for 105 shipped a few years ago. It was the Korean version, but I don't care!

    I was advised by the pricing lords on here a while back to spend no more than $100 for a loose, mostly complete one, so $300 MIB sounds pretty good.

    I see them go for between $200-300 on average. Well worth the price in my book.

    Man. I am SO glad my wife bought one of these for me when she did. $129 shipped back right before we heard about them releasing it in the states. Which they then proceeded to drop.

    My wife = a goddess. Possibly the goddess, as I haven't met another one.

    That sounds about right to me. I'm glad I bought two of them when they first came out. I believe they cost me $120 and $180 each.

    I really can't help but envy you on having such an understanding wife! LOL! Anyway, back on topic yeah, I too would expect it to be in the USD$300 for a MIB Takara Brave Max. If you want it cheaper, you can try getting the Korean version...I believe its quality is also decent.

    I think the only difference is in the packaging.

    One sticker is upside down on the Korean one. Can't remember which one right at the moment, but I remember it being a world-ending issue when the Korean version first came out for certain folks.
