    Hello,

    I hope you want to help me with this.

    I "found" a MISB RID Optimus Prime and would like to know the realistic value of this figure. Not intended to sell it most likely, but always good to know. Looked on the internet, but found prices that differ alot.

    The box has (major) shelf wear and faded colors. All corners are damaged. Figure itself is in good condition.

    Hope to hear from you and thanks in advance.

    Greetings,

    Antoine

    ^ After all these years, he's definitely not USD $30 now...

    Not for a sealed specimen...

    Then again, with a box condition as per your description, value's not getting any higher. :)

    $35 is really low for a MISB RiD Prime. Maybe if you're lucky with a low starting bid on eBay, but not on a BIN or even in the Junkion Exchange. Maybe a couple of years ago, but now in the last 18 months.

    I won MISB Car Robots Fire Convoy, God Magnus, and Black Convoy for 110 on ebay in a lot about a year ago. I still see them go for about 45 each MISB... I dunno why anyone would pay more for an inferior version.
