    My set came boxed and complete, just missing the paperwork. I was thinking, since I'm 99,99999% sure I will never sell the toys, should I sell the box/insert and the 2 spare Victory Leo missiles? If so, what would be a realistic non-lowballer price? The box is beat up but still one piece. The foam insert is in pretty good shape.

    you sell the missiles, it's no longer complete, so i would keep them, but the box and foam are cool looking, but if you want to get rid of them go ahead, dunno what to tell you to charge though

    I'm just gonna pull this outta the top of my head so please don't get offended, but for the box+foam insert I'd say $100-$160. This is just my opinion for it though.

    $120-$150 for the box would be a fair deal. Possibly more depending on how well the foam instert is.

    why sell the missiles just keep it as backups and if you didn't want the box/inserts why buy it MIB why not just find a loose one?

    Because it was cheaper and more convenient, I paid 475 shipped.

    And cobra_zartan, you definitely undersold your missiles, easier to find Overlord missiles go for $25 if not more.

    Pity when you said the box is beat up or else you could possibly get a higher price for it.

    Missiles for Victory Leo used to go for higher $$$. (Note, "used to")

    Till repros started appearing on eBay...

    I'd keep the missiles man, just in case one goes missing.

    As for the box, I'd sell it.

    Just my 2 cents... its not worth selling the box. What little you make now is NOTHING compared to the loss in value if/when that day comes you have to sell.:2c:

    I haven't monitored those sets, but I've seen like 5-6 of those go for around $350-$500 "MIB" on ebay the last 6 monthes. I, didn't pay it much attention so I can't tell if they were complete or not, or what condition they were really in, but if you can sell the box for $160 like someone said and then then I say go for it. You're bound to be able to pick up a repro box for way than that or even an original one in way better condition for half of that.

    As for the missiles though, even if you got $25 for both of 'em then I doubt it'd be worth it as there are people who don't view it as complete without all the missiles.

    You sure you're not just talking about Victory Leo? $350 seems unrealistically low for a Victory Leo/Star Saber giftset unless it's super incomplete/damaged... Mine has heavy chrome wear on the sword and some slight yellowing on Victory Leo's backpack, nothing too noticeable though.

    I was more thinking about the poor folks that have a missile-less Victory Leo (I had one at some point and it really bugged me).

    I'm leaning towards C-327 Victory Leo as well. :sly2: 

    The giftset has to go way beyond that given range...

    I don't think he is joking.

    I've seen the gift sets go for less than what u guys are saying.

    I also see people put the two figures together and call it a gift set as well.

    Found lot's of them in the area he is talking about price wise as well.

    If my situation was different financially right now I would have had on already.

    I tend to poke around ebay on a regular basis and also Transformer type sights for things I am interested in now and the future so he is definitely not talking out his rear here.

    Still no word on condition or completeness at those prices. There's one currently at $510 with no sword and no small gun. One at $700 with no sword and no missiles. One complete for $900-1000. One complete at $950. One missing 2 missiles sold for $650.
