    Pricecheck: Going rate for a MISB Universe Ramjet?

    I recently acquired a MISB Universe Ramjet that I'm looking to sell and a friend advised me that it's a bit rare (thanks, fabexmax!), something I was surpised by since I got a loose one pretty damn cheap a while back. So, I go take a look on e-bay and I find these 2 auctions:

    Loose:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/TransFormers-Armada-Universe-Lot-RamJet-StarScream-g1_W0QQitemZ320080513112QQihZ011QQcategoryZ4696QQrdZ1QQssPageNameZWD1VQQcmdZViewItem

    (Insane, IMO, especially since the Ramjet set is incomplete)

    and

    Sealed:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/Transformers-Universe-Ramjet-MISB-AFA-90-90-95-4-minis_W0QQitemZ150095110193QQihZ005QQcategoryZ4696QQrdZ1QQssPageNameZWD1VQQcmdZViewItem

    Stupid AFA! Totally nuts!

    So, what then might be fair and does anybody here want one? I'm not looking to gouge anyone, but it would be nice to offset the costs of the lot I bought that contained this thing. Shoot me a PM if interested!

    Thanks, all!

    That's worth how much now?
    That's retarded. I saw tons of them when they first came out. Whatever.

    Ok just to set the law of the land here, please keep any bartering and deal making to PM's and Junkion. Thanks.

    Anyway I wouldn't say he's that rare at all. I think he ended up being on clearance up here for a wile.

    No problem, Soundwave.ca. I know the law of the land here for the most part. I just figured I'd add the sale clause and kill 2 birds with one stone if at all possible.

    If he's truly not rare (and people will assuredly tell me as they are doing now), then give this thread another day or two and then axe it for me. I have a hard time believing it too, but others in the world seemto think otherwise.

    I figured I'd move it to the Junkion anyway, once I got some pricing input.

    I'd guess $20-30 for a MIB one. I haven't watched much Universe stuff but I've seen MISB Nemesis Primes go for only slightly more than their retail $20, and I doubt Ramjet would fetch more.

    A completed items search on eBay came up with two - an opened one at 28.10
    and a sealed one at 14.00.

    Interesting...thanks, guys! I keep forgetting you can do an ended search on e-bay since I never do it. I guess the 2 current sellers are complete f-tards.

    Well...I think I'd just be happy with the money. :p

    Had a MIB Ramjet for the longest time and nobody ever seemed to want it.

    Eventually an online bud of mine got the Air Military Team for his Mini-Con collection and I traded away Ramjet and Thunderclash, valuing them at about $11.

    Aside from someone who really needs one MISB, I don't think Ramjet was or is all that valuable right now.

    It was very easy to find in Canada. It must just be where you live.

    An AFA-graded Armada mold? That has to be the most retarded thing ever.

    Well, it IS Universe (a bit rarer than Armada...sort of...), but, yeah, it's absolutely retarded. I think a Energon fig. would be worse, but maybe that's just me.

    It's all good, man, it's as good as sold to a fellow fan! Hooray! It is indeed a sweet set!

    Soundwave.ca - you can now slaughter this thread if you wish. Blow it up! Blow it up good!
