It's actually a pretty average price for the markets right now. Is it high? Yes. It's not even the highest price going right now. Actually is at the lower end of most of the sale prices right now.$599 is still too high.

But even loose ones are commanding that price, and they're selling. These are disappearing now. New collectors and hobbyists want them, that didn't know about them before. In comparison to new figure prices right now, a NIB one of these is actually quite decent at that price.
I know personally know of at least 3 that have been thrown out in the last few years because the owners didn't get their asking price (even lower than $500 USD), or just couldn't sell them because of postage costs, or even lack of interest (goes in waves really). So, they are in fact disappearing from the market. For every one that gets scrapped, the market shrinks and drives up the cost.
From what we can see on Ebay right now, that would seem like a fairly average market price. But who can actually decide whether it is scalping or not? It's not like there are rules or guidelines to say it is, or not.I own a fleet of them (MIB/NRFB). They are the ones that came with the pilot figure in the black colored box. It was the last iteration of the craft before 21STCT folded. I purchased the lot from a former 21STCT employee.
If I decided to sell them now and say my price is $600.00 each plus $100.00 to cover shipping and insurance, would I be accused of being greedy, a scalper, an opportunist, oblivious, ignorant, etc.?
No. I'm not selling any of mine. If I did, I do it in person at a collector show . . . maybe.
I thought so...I thought it was a typo.The price now is US $599.00, do you think he might have mistyped it before?
Wouldn't be a bad typo if somebody had bought it.
When were these made? About 20 years ago? Yeah, when they first came out, they were like under $50, but they don't make this anymore. Which means the more years that they are out of production, the more valuable they become. I picked up mine for about $150, but this was like over 10 years ago.$599 is still too high.
No, I would not think this, because that is what the market place is at. Why not sell your little bird for what the going rate is? I mean for 21C to fire up the molds to make this again...I would imagine it would cost...$300 or more. Your not taking into the factor of inflation and material cost now. I mean are you really thinking of selling it for the price you bought it for, $50? No! That would be crazy.If I decided to sell them now and say my price is $600.00 each plus $100.00 to cover shipping and insurance, would I be accused of being greedy, a scalper, an opportunist, oblivious, ignorant, etc.?
