    OK, I just managed to win this:

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI....MEWN:IT&viewitem=&item=270148113167&rd=1&rd=1

    Having e-mailed the seller - he told me the paintwork is perfect (even the end of the nose) and that the plastic is as white as they come.

    £62!

    Now, I got this having just been beaten on this one:

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI....MEDW:IT&viewitem=&item=260142007913&rd=1&rd=1

    Which went for £117!

    So... Was I lucky or was the guy who beat me to the post on the other one really unlucky?

    What is the going rate for a M(ish)IB G1 Jetfire anyway?

    Obviously the prices are UK prices.

    Steve.

    PS. As a side note I'm gutted that I missed this: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI....MEWA:IT&viewitem=&item=230154746504&rd=1&rd=1 I e-mailed the seller and then had a 3 hour journey to make. I came back to find that my question had been answered (all mint - no paint chips or chrome blemishes on any of them!) and that it had ended. Ebay heartache!

    Yeah you got a pretty good deal on yours. Though what I've been noticing lately is that there are TONS of mib Jetfires. So you might have gotten it even a bit cheaper. Same with Omega Supreme, it;s just flooded with them now. As for the Jetfire you won, I wonder where the flap mysteriosly dissapperas in the first pic.

    Yeah - I just noticed that! I guess maybe it's a little loose. Oh well, it's not the box I'm really after anyway - that's just a bonus.

    I'm noticing that the number of vintage G1 TFs has increased quite a lot since the movie came out. I think people are hearing the term "Transformers" for the first time in years and they're clearing out their attics and trying to make the most of the hype.

    All good. :)
