    The title pretty much sums it up peeps. I am wondering what's a fair price to offer for MIB (Only open for contents verification) Superion Aerial Team Appendage Add-on kit. The first version.

    I HAVE ALREADY CHECKED EBAY AND UNLESS I'VE DONE SOMETHING BEEN UNABLE TO GATHER ANY HELPFUL INFO

    I assume you mean the regular one and not the Snowman version. If so, I'd say somewhere in the neighborhood of $80-$100.

    Last two auctions for the kit only went for $170 and $175 on ebay. I'd knock 15-20% off of that if you're buying it here.

    Thanks! How are you accessing that info? I must be doing something wrong.

    Search for it and then select "Completed Listings" on the left:

    fansproject superion | eBay

    The price might be a little high, but it is what the market appears to be pricing it at right now.

    ^ Things are a little different now, as compared to what it used to go for around a year back...

    I'd say about $125-$150. Not 100% sure since I keep seeing the kit sold in a bundle with the ROTF boxset but not separately.

    For the kit alone? I wouldn't pay more than $80.

    $80 appears to be too low at this point. The kit had been going for close to $200 (maybe more, I don't have all of the data) in late 2010. The sudden warehouse find (or whatever the source was) shortly thereafter caused the price to drop back towards the normal retail price. However, in late 2011 it was already going for $120-$130 on Ebay, and appears to have gone further north since then.

    If you're looking to sell the set for more that $125.00, I'd do it sooner rather than later. There is still some demand for it right now, but once the Super-ion kits start hitting I'm thinking the price will collapse again.

    "I'd like to buy the Aerial appendage kit. What's the bill?"

    "How much you got?"

    "No, No. I asked what's the bill"

    "And I said how much you got?"

    "I wonder what the sherif would think of your business here?"

    **flips open sherif's wallet and laughs**

    I agree with DrTraveler if you are a seller. If you are a buyer...wait till real pics of Super-Ion drop. People will be selling the kit shortly thereafter.

    Also note that Fansproct never sealed Crossfire-01. There is no tape on it at all. If i could sell my kit for $125 I would like to.

    This is a good thing to have noted, because it's always a double take when you buy something new and it isn't sealed. :lol

    If your patient you can get the ariel kit for under $100 easily. Like others have said if you keep an eye on ebay you may find one cheap. I've seen a good few deals here on these boards for them. Just keep your eyes open and some extra money in your bank so you can spring on a great deal when it presents itself.

    PS: Get the snowman kit if you can. Its the one I owned and I loved it. Wish I hadn't of sold it now.

    I'm still amazed how high up the price on this kit shot up; since it doesn't nearly do for Superion what Munitioner and Explorer do for Bruticus.

    I don't mean to thread jack, but I have a quick question. How much would I be able to sell one complete Appendage kit, two mix-and-matched Superions, and a few extra limbs for?

    And as for the topic's question, I would say $120-$150 since ToyArena is selling there's for $160 plus shipping if I remember correctly.

    The kit took a good long while to sell out to. The LE snowman kit also took a good while to sell out. Its just the FP curse, the minute its sold out gl getting one.

    But it does make for a very nice bot. Very nice.

    I'll be watching out for the Snowman kit and a Target RotF set once pics and pre-orders for Super-Ion drops myself. I already have an Energon set and a FP grey set and would love the other variant for display.
