    Hi.

    Since I intend to buy from somebody's private collection please let me know the current price for a MISB BT17 Black convoy (box in good condition) Wonder Winter Festival / E-hobby.

    I tried past ebay auctions but don't find any on Ebay's cache.

    Would love to hear from you.

    Regards

    Denny

    yeah even today i would expect to pay at least $700 plus due to its rarity. i bought one loose with the box almost 2 years ago for $600.

    Dang, that's how much it cost now? Glad I was able to get one MISB for $100 when it first came out.

    I sold my opened one a few years ago for $400, what it goes for today I cant tell ya. I know Binaltech's in general dont command the high prices they once did so that might have effected the price of this guy as well.

    Good luck tho, it's a gorgeous figure.

    yah I remember BBTS had it for that price. I bought mine off of ebay as a preorder. My mistake though it was $150, not $100. But apparently that was still a great price.

    Yes, as compared to the current market rate for him. :) 

    Now price discussion aside, the packaging fails me big time.

    It came boxed in Alternator-style while I was expecting it to follow in the tradition of BTs.

    He wouldn't have fitted in the BT box, and Takara didn't appear to have a large packaging design budget for him.

    I glad I got mine at the time, but not for potential resale reasons though. It'll probably still remain with me even if I sold off a lot or most of my collection, along with the BT RX-8s.

    Transformers Binaltech Nemesis Prime BT-17 Japanese - eBay (item 190500004956 end time Feb-21-11 10:21:30 PST)

    This one sold a few days ago. That's one of the cheapest prices I've seen for this figure MiSB. Typically, a nice, sealed piece goes for $800-1200. You can see the range there is quite a bit, but things can fluctuate quite a bit, depending on the market (as evidenced by the above link as well as the link to the previous thread already cited).

    It sounds to me that if you and the seller can come to a figure you're both happy with, you can call it a game won :)
