    What should I expect to pay for one of these MIB, complete with gun, gun clip and instructions?

    Thanks!

    Gonna need a lot more info. There have been so many toy companies that have sold valkyries that you need to mention which model, made by who, and scale.

    That's a Takatoku VF-1S. If you don't mind that it's not vintage, Bandai just reissued that mold and you can get a new one for $100ish. If you really want that box and something vintage then go for the toy you posted.

    AS for what is a good deal....I'm actually not sure since the prices on those have dropped because if the reissues back in 2001? and now.

    Thanks bigkid.

    So it isn't super rare or anything?

    I just want to offer a fair price for it but don't want to get ripped off either. Is it worth between $100-200 do you think?

    Thanks!

    I've got the Bandai reissue that I'd consider selling for a fair price if interested :) 

    It's possibly my favorite toy mold of all time, but I have it in a bunch of versions -- the one above, Jetfire, the brown common Valkyrie, and a KO.

    There have been MUCH better Valkyrie toys made since that one. You can get a brand new Yamato 1/60 scale, which is a far superior toy, for almost the same price, in case you didn't know. Maybe about $20 more before shipping.
