    hi does anyone know how much the takara version of the masterpiece prime is worth?
    its complete and used to display only and it has all its accessories and the box is in decent condition

    i see the US version going for under 100 but people are asking more for the takara version so if anyone can tell me what is a decent price for the takara version id greatly appreciate it

    check out ebay. You can pretty much tell fair market value by that...by cutting it in half :p  Check the boards here, etc.


    The thing that I think is strange is that an MP-4 (with trailer) is usually cheaper than an MP-1 (without.)

    If it's MIB, no less than $150. Depending on wear, it could go for less.

    I agree with the $150 estimate. That's about what I have seen a few go for over the last few months on the "bay".

    Is it worth $150 to you? That's really all that matters.

    ^ This.

    Personally I got the 25th Ann version, and was happy with that. If I'd known then, I would have picked up MP-4. But I take all mine out, the differenced between the Takara and Hasbro ones weren't enough for me to spend the extra cash initially. I'm happy with what I have, but a trailer woulda been nice... of course I can always pick one up later.


    It's all up to you and your reasons for getting it.
