    Hey guys, was wondering what an open, complete Universe Starscream is worth? I have someone interested in buying one, but I have no idea as to what to ask for this thing. Sadly it's one of two MIB pieces that got trashed by a friends kids.... Moot point, so what's it worth?! Thanks guys!!

    Try EBay. It's my understanding that that piece is worth a bit these days. $30-40 maybe?

    It's worth quite a bit. At least $30.

    You should ask for $200.

    It's worth quite a bit. At least $30. That's what I'm getting from board asking prices, online retailers, and eBay...although I think the latter is somewhat of a poor gauge for determining exact prices.

    You should ask for $200.

    I thought the Classics version was about $25-30 loose and the Uni 2.0 was about $20...

    Is the 2.0 version going for more than classics now? that'd be a shame, it's about the ugliest deco that mold ever had.

    When I last did a price check using eBay's completed listings about a month ago, I came up with $45 minus shipping for a MoSC version, and about $35 for a loose/complete piece. I wouldn't imagine the price would have fluctuated that much since then.

    While this may (or may not, as I really like it) be, this is probably as close as we're coming to a "G1" Starscream this side of Henkei from an official release. It will probably be quite a while before we see a new mold for "Classics" Seekers as well. Given these two things along with the lack of fans during Universe 2.0 as compared to now creates the demand for this figure.

    2.0 is more g1 accurate thus making him a little more popular than 1.0 ( gray scream ).
    30-40 loose is average.

    I actually kind of like 2.0 Starscream more than the Classics version. I honestly think the only thing it needs is some extra detailing, because it looked unfinished in certain areas. And I agree with SQ7 that the 2.0 version has more of a toon accurate appeal that the Henkei verison may not meet to some collectors.

    I traded mine for a blue ML Soundwave before the price spike. I kind of want a replacement, but I'm holding out for someone willing to sell it for a relatively cheap price.

    I have one for sale for $30. When I first joined up earlier this year people PM'd me asking anywhere between $35-$50.

    I agree that this is the blandest deco of this mold BUT it is still the most toon/G1 accurate deco we have for Starscream. Really sort of a win-lose with this deco but what are you going to do.

    I am kinda underwhelmed with mine, but I also want a G1 accurate SS. (Now where can I get a good deal on a Generations Thrust, lol.)
