    Does anyone have the Insections set for sale in the range of 320-350 USD? I'm a new collector and missed a set for 320 USD some weeks ago, and prices in Ebay are now totally absurd.

    Thanks!

    Welcome to the "you'll soon be broke" club. If you're truly new to the community, then unfortunately you'll find out very fast that FT figures are like stock and appreciate in value very fast. The Insecticon set is one of the harder to find but most sought after sets. They average about $600-800 now. Insane, I know (especially since each bug retailed for about $75-85). But unless you are extremely patient and get lucky, you'll probably pay $320-350 JUST FOR FORAGER alone! Gray chest Bombshell is just as expensive.

    Good luck w/ your quest.

    Thanks! As I mentioned, someone sold a set some weeks ago here for 320 USD, so it's not impossible. I can also find mercenary cheaply in China, but not the others, so I would prefer a set if available at a reasonable price.

    I vaguely remember that post. I also remember the poor seller got flooded with messages as soon as he posted. LOL

    I admit I was one of the ones that tried to jump on it as soon as it was posted (prob. within 3 minutes) but I struck out too.

    Have you tried joining a TF Facebook group? Many sales in those groups.
