    100% Complete with box. Any idea what he's worth? I know he's fairly rare, but not sure how much demand there is.

    According to my newest issue of Lee's Toy Review (not new, bought it Feb. 07), he's worth $20.00

    I did a quick search on Ebay and the last loose ones ended at $40 and $50.
    I've even seen MISB ones go for as high as $100.

    I think $50 should be about right for what you have.

    I think only about 10 000 of him were made. That certainly makes him rare, but there's not much demand for him. So it could go a number of ways.

    I've seen complete with box and instructions go for almost $150. I've also seen compelte ones, no box or instruction go for $50-$70. $75-$100 seems to be about the resonable price for what you have.

    Ebay:
    Worth only $20? I'd swear he was worth a lot more than that.

    Is this referring to the Beast Machines Optimal Optimus painted in G1 colors?

    There was one at Botcon for $60 (MIB not MISB). I'm still looking for one, but not really MIB, just complete (I'm cheap).

    I remember some kid at Botcon years back (01 maybe?) paid like what had to have been $500+ for a MISB one at the charity auction :lol 

    But ya if it's opened with box, complete, and good condition (watch for chrome flaking) $50 sounds right

    How long ago did you purchase it? I didn't realize it was worth this much.

    I'd pay $100 for it easy! I used to have one, until my ex-wife (when we were still married) made me choose between my transformers and her because she thought it was childish for a grown man to collect them, so I sold him on ebay :( 

    I want another one and $100 is a realistic price to me for something so rare MISB!
