    I think I just saw Alphie's next holy grail, if she doesn't have it already.

    I got it. with the box, too, and mine hasn't yellowed, like that one has. that was one of the hardest things for me to find, when I was trying to get everything with prime's likeness 8 years ago when I really got back into collecting. anyone know what it's worth now?

    i, too, desire to unscrew optimus' skullcap and extract baked goodies from within his disembodied head.

    sounds like a good premise to the comic series war within: TF - cookies within.

    GOD, I remember going to the big Kane county fair ground in Chicago for the annual toy show they had in 1999 and seeing that in the doll barn for sale. I must have circled that thing like a vulture, I wanted it so bad. It was $400 MIB and the lady would not budge on the price. I was only willing to cough up $250. Oh well, all was not lost. I managed to find a complete set of Cannonball Run Matchbox cars from 1981! Sweet.

    I would love to get this. There was a time on Ebay where SEVERAL popped up. The cheapest in mint condition with no box went for only $35. Missed out on it. :banghead:  The most expensive was $100, but most I've seen on Ebay went for around $70.

    I've seen lots of them come and go on E-Bay. Like alphie said, the cheapest has been around $35, and I've seen plenty go for between that and $60 or so. Lately though, they've been fetching some pretty high prices, probably due to the movie coming out. They're not super rare, but still rare enough to drive the price up a bit, I guess.

    Saw one of those at some trade fair for $25 and picked it up. No yellowing, in great condition.

    I think it's in the attic.
