    I sold one for $150 on ebay a few months back. I can only imagine that its gone up a little, especially with the battle tanker upgrade kit being made in matching colors.

    I checked on eBay and one is going for $224, but it is eBay and who knows. Anyone else care to chime in?

    $200 looks to be the average price now that the Battle Tanker add-on has been revealed with full pictures.

    I expect the price to get even higher once people get this add-on in-hand and start snapping pics of it. The hype will send the price flying.

    If you're looking to sell, personally I'd wait unless you really needed the money; the price is just going to keep climbing. If you're looking to buy it, I'd do it sooner rather than later.

    200 is actually on the high side, the past two weeks a lot of auctions ended somewhere in the 140ish range with some going 160-170. But yeah apparently he's spiked a a bit since the announcement of the battle tanker upgrade. That said I'm glad I got him for a decent price right after Botcon. That add-on was practically inevitable.

    Is it worth getting current figures graded? I never really thought about doing that.
