    I hit the jackpot today and found this little gem at the flea market for $2. I'm thinking of selling it, but I have no idea for how much, since no one on eBay has listed just the head in the past 30 days.

    So tell me: How much is this bad boy worth? It has a few minor dings, but the joints are super tight and there isn't a spot of yellowing anywhere. Apparently, the stickers were never applied.

    wow nice find. I remember seeing them range from 75-100ish, but that was a while ago. I'm not sure what he would go for now

    Wow. I was expecting it to be worth $50 or so.


    So, where should I sell it? I could list it in the Junkion for $100, but does anyone think I could get more for it on eBay?

    I think you should take it as a sign to start the journey of completing a Fort Max piecemeal style!

    Good find though.

    He's right, you know. You've just acquired the most expensive Fort Max accessory. In regards to it's value, if I had that figure for sale I'd want about $80 for it. Keep in mind when selling it that you only paid $2. Even if you let it go for $20, you still made ten times what you paid for it.

    Ha! I wish. I can't afford parts for the G1s I already have.

    Besides, I already have Brave Maximus.

    I'll keep that in mind.


    I think I'll eBay it. They may take a chunk of my profit, but whatever. I did only pay $2 for it. :)

    The history of this piece boggles my mind. Once brand new ... to being used but no stickers applied ... to being separated from it's body and in a flea market BIN for only $2.

    This kind of story makes me want to take notice of flea markets and garage sales more often ...

    Feel free to sell it in the Junkion and if I were you, I'd ask about 75-80% of completed ebay auctions since it's less hassle and you do save on the listing and selling fees. Just be prepared to be assaulted by lowball offers, especially since you've made it public you only spent $2. Entitlement is strong over there.
