    I have one MIB never removed. Stickersheet and instructions still taped up. I am not into Web Diver so what the heck do these things go for? This thing is huge and taking up a lot of space.....

    You might want this thread moved to non-TF Toyark :) 
    There's only one even at yahoo jp and I am not sure if it reflects the current value. Board member Pravus Prime has a complete collection of Web Divers so maybe you can ask him?

    While I completed my collection quite a while ago, I still watch them (and diagunder) on eBay.

    While it originally retailed for around $80, like most of Webdiver (Save Wyverion and Daitalion) the markets really dried up for them. Unless you catch a fluke I'd say around $40-60 would be a good price, but you may not find a buyer for some time; if you want to move it you may have to go as far down as the $20-30 range, though going any further is more or less giving it away at that point, which if you need to move it you may almost have to do. Plus the sucker is huge and shipping won't be cheap.

    A little over 2 months ago someone listed their Webdiver collection and only solicited bids on three of them; granted they didn't have the later pieces that carry the greater value, but even so, there's not much of a market for them sadly. It's a shame, because the system and the idea is so cool, but it's complete failure at retail as well as its obscurity meant that the market completely collapsed on them value-wise. I picked up most of my collection for less then a quarter of the original retail price and that was through stores like BigBadToystore and Gundamstoreandmore when they kept dropping the price to get rid of their excess stock 10 years ago. In the years since, the market has only gotten worse for sellers.

    It's a fantastic and huge showpiece, but sadly it doesn't have the game interactivity that other pieces have (it only does the tech spec/bio and the puzzle, nothing to help in game - no weapons mode), which doesn't help it either.

    As I said, it's truly a shame, it's one of the pieces that never fails to get a wow when I bring it out of the display case.
