    Probably a number of figures equal or close to the value igear was selling it for, if only as a starting offer.

    I would offer a box of Thin Mints and some aspirin for their headache from actually owning that thing.

    What's with the hate for this thing? I think it's awesome and worth the original price.

    The thing needs some TLC but after that it becomes a brilliant 3P item. A dab of crazy glue on each connection point will straighten the set up and hold it together like one solid piece of plastic. The headaches and negativity were taken way out of hand on this set.

    I think IF you can find one they sell for around $350-450 but I think it is much closer to $450.

    What is a fair trade? Any figures of interest that equal to at least $350 on that after market.

    OK I high balled it a bit. It seems that recently more have popped up on ebay. They hover around $330.

    I'm amazed at the price too. I remember when it first came out, people hated on this thing HARDCORE. It tool a long while for it to sell out (at discounted prices) and once it was sold out interest in the item rose.

    Nobody wanted this set in the beginning. It was on sale at BBTS for $90 in fall of 2010. After they were all gone they started to go for $400 on eBay.

    $350 for it new seems to be the upper limit. If yours isn't new then it would probably go for less. I'd shoot for $250.

    I've found the kotobaya chain base kits can be easily painted to give the same effect as the teletran set.

    But does it come with Teletran 1? There is more to the set than just walls and a floor.

    It disnt really matter to me, the orange walls tell you where you're at even if you're not standing in front of the literal computer. There's also a teletran cut out kit online for free if you absolutely must have the computer part.

    I don't think so. IIRC it was a bad experience for iGear from a commercial standpoint. It didn't sell well, it stayed on clearence for a long time and It took forever to sell out. Only THEN it became a sought after item and prices became insane in the aftermarket.
