    I'm assuming that he's in the UK, so he'd have to go to a hell of a lot of flea markets/boot sales in order to find one! (Unless he's a very, very lucky person!!)


    What price is the seller asking and is the seller also in the UK?

    Nice one. Did you try and haggle the price down at all?!!

    But the fact that he was never released over here means that it's extremely unlikely that could happen.

    While I agree that it is a lot of money and more than I would be willing to pay, I wouldn't say that it is hugely overpriced.

    My advice would be to try for another version instead. I picked up a MIB complete Brave for £150 from a board member over at TF@TM.

    I'm more than happy with him and have no regrets buying him.
    While he doesn't come with as many accessories, I actually prefer the colour scheme to that of Fort. Plus the fact that I'm pretty sure I would never find a FM for that sort of price and wouldn't be willing to pay much more than I did.

    I'd say so, I bought mine complete and in great condition here on the boards for $700, so I'd say you're doing okay. You could just hold out and try to get lucky like some of these other guys, but over time, inflation will keep inflating.

    Personally, I'd say take this one if you can afford it. Also check the exchange here a little first, I believe I saw someone selling one for $600 a couple days ago.

    No wide release. It was offered as part of a in store coloring competition in Toymaster stores around the summer of 89, Hamleys, and maybe a few other stores also sold it for a brief period.

    Yup, those TF with lots of little compartments can sometimes hold surprises. Could be that if the seller knew he still had Spike in a compartment the price could've been higher.

    Ebay:
    What disturbs me more is that Hasbro or TT had to have know how much fans are willing to drop hundreds of dollars on a vintage, but fail to properly reissue FM from the original '87 US.

    And don't give this horse shiets about bad economy. I mean, if the demand is there peeps are willing to at least drop $250- for a well made re-issue FM!

    I meant the OP. But in guard convoy's case, indeed.
