    How much do you think a MIB Star Saber is worth? I found one in Japan for 350 shipped and complete. Does that sound like a good deal?

    Depends on the condition but, I'd say its over priced. I sold one for roughly $200 last year which was complete in decent condition. At AA one sold for a bit more, the box was in better condition but it was missing the gun and had a reproduction sword. Complete and in really good condition $350 is at the absolute upper end of what I can imagine anyone paying.

    Fraid not but bargains do pop up once in a while. The two I mentioned are really at the lower end of the price spectrum, but you should be able to do better than $350 if you keep an eye out over a few months.

    Its all a matter of perspective though others might tell you $350 is a good price and you could have it in your hands in just a couple of weeks.

    I paid $300 for my complete MIB Star Saber at Botcon. I was very happy with my purchase. I wouldn't say no to $350 shipped, especially if it was as mint and untouched as mine is.

    I'd definitely agree with you guys that $300 or a bit over for a boxed Star Saber is a good price. I bought MIB versions of both Star Saber & Victory Leo for $300 each in July last year (the Ebay Seller wanted $350-360 each but I haggled him down) and all I can recommend is to keep searching Ebay & make offers around the $300 mark - eventually the Seller will get desperate & take the cash. :lol

    I just picked up one of these MIB stickers unapplied for a little bit more along with Victory Leo (same condition)
    They arrived beginning of the week
    FANTASTIC pieces (though won't be applying the stickers)

    you'll have to pick up victory Leo eventually now the combined mode is awesome

    I reprolabelled mine; they're excellent quality, and no matter how insanely cool both toys look without stickers, they do look a lot better with stickers on. I got Starsaber mint, stickers unapplied, at Botcon 05 for $275, and a loose but complete Victory Leo on eBay a couple of years back for $80 (I later picked up a damaged but displayable box for him with styro for $40).
    DAMN right.

    Thanks for all the support guys!

    I think the only Negative thing about this purchase, is like what someone else mentioned, your going to want Victory Leo. Thats going to be another 250-300 bucks. OH man, this is going to be the most expensive combiner I own.

    You won't regret it. I bought Bogatan's off him, he's amazing. And yes, you do have to buy a Victory Leo, the world will explode if you don't :lol

    I've had them nearly three months now and I haven't formed Victory Saber yet. I gotta get on the ball!

    I refuse to combine them.

    Victory Leo is far too awesome to have his purpose in life amount to: 'become platform shoes'
