    I'm trying to get a set of TFC Insecticons right now, with them often going for prices of $120 or more just for MIB on ebay I'm wondering whats a good price for them both MIB and MISB I'm really worried about overpaying.

    Bid what you believe they are worth to you. If you don't win the auction at that price, try again. And use an eBay snipe program or something similar to bid at the last moment - that usually leads to a cheaper price.

    I got my about a year ago for 65 dollars from Digital toys. Personally, I wouldn't pay more than 70 for any of the regular TFC releases. There is enough of them out there. They shouldn't warrant that high of a price.

    Ya they've been around the $100 range for a wile now. If your looking for just the Insecticons I would maybe try and go vintage but if your looking to complete the TFC line or just have to have them your looking around $100 for sure.

    Yeah, that's a good point... if you're trying to complete your TFC set, they'll probably run you about a hundred, but if you just want the three figures for your display, you can get minty-fresh vintage pieces for like $15 each (I paid $18 each for mine and they came with all paperwork and the most immaculate chrome I've ever seen on a vintage piece).

    Yeah, I'm working on getting all my favorites in the TFC form. Thats why I'm not going for the 1980's release. The price of $100 makes me nervous, but I guess if I think of it as three seperate figures then $100 isn't bad when Blitzwing fetchs $80 as a single figure. Thanks

    Is there any chance that the insecticons set gets re-released in the current Takara/Tomy Encore line?

    It's possible since they are re-releasing the minibots (who are also in the WTF price range).

    Chance? Yes.

    Odds? Difficult to pinpoint.

    Judging by current Ebay prices, I'd say $140 the going rate for MISB.
