    If you can buy this for $107/mib/shipped.........

    What would someone pay for just the figure loose/in good shape and nothing broken? Meaning, no other parts come with him other than the parts needed to transform.

    $40. reasonable?

    I'm asking because I just purchased one MIB and decided not to open it, and looking for price suggestions on a loose one w/ZERO accsessories. It does'nt even need the Arm cannon!

    The real question is... Can it be found?

    I was thinking the same thing :lol 
    But if one were to be found, what would you pay for it? I'd pay $50.00 shipped for one MAX!

    Ya, no kidding.

    Hypothetically though I would say that if you did find one I would be paying no more then $40.

    If it had the arm cannon, I'd offer $50 before shipping, and maybe $35-40 before shipping if it didn't have the arm cannon.

    That is assuming it can be found, of course. I doubt many people (or anywhere, for that matter) here are interested in a mace and mini Kremzeek figure without wanting Megs, too.

    I guess I'll have to wait a year or so. Time usually has a way of stealing little items from TF's :)

    WST Ravage wants a word with you. He hasn't been in his box since the day I bought it... (about a month after release) Hell, I even sold off Soundwave (it broke :cry ) and Ravage is still here.

    You might just be better off finding another sealed one and opening it.

    I'm trying to focus on the main 3 though. G1, MP's and Alternators. I just spent a wad on a mib MP meg and a mib G1 Omega Supreme. Just have enough left in PP to cover a loose MP meg if anyone has one ;)

    I have a very hard time seeing the $40-50 value that Kremzeek, the handgun, sword and mace supposedly make up. I could see maybe $20-$30 off because of that, but no way would it be half price as a result.

    I wouldn't see people doing this if it were Prime missing his energon axe and Megatron gun

    I thought I saw the Megatron/Starscream gun alone going for $25.+

    You pop the box open though and it's an instant $10.+ off the figure right?
    You're probably right though. I posted a WTB here for $50. anyway.

    You might want to contact BBTS and the likes after everyone gets their shipments... I'd imagine they buy a few extra to strip (for those that get one with missing/defective accessories) and maybe take some parts off of... And worst comes to worst, you waste some time... Right?

    I've done it before successfully... (I was looking for a Reverse Evolution Sixturbo a few years back after they were common on the market) So I figured I'd pass it on. It isn't the same concept per se, but it could still work.

    Just wrote to both TFsource and BBTS about my situation.
    I put the name of the forum here and slipped your name in there also.

    Thanks again.

    Wish me luck
