    that's hard cuz I have them all except unflocked Moss-Man and the SDCC Grayskull's which I don't really like. I would try to be as dirt cheap as possible, and really wouldn't spend more than 30 on anyone.

    SDCC king Grayskull $25 (I just don't care for this to pay much than regular price, if I wanted him at all) I'd be just as happy with the 2010 variant.
    SDCC king grayskull bronze $25 (I just don't care for this to pay much than regular price, if I wanted him at all) I'd be just as happy with the 2010 variant.
    He-man $25
    Beastman $25
    Teela $25
    Unflocked Mossman $25 (I just don't care for this to pay much than regular price, if I wanted him at all)
    Shadow Weaver $25
    Wun-Dar $40 (because that's what I paid)
    Fisto $25
    Sorceress $25
    Whiplash $25 (I just don't care for this to pay much than regular price, if I wanted him at all)

    for the ones I would buy, I would pay no more than $25 from Matty, no more than $35 from BBTS if I had extra money, and wasn't buying many.

    SDCC king Grayskull $60, although I paid much more the first time round.
    SDCC king grayskull bronze $60. Don't have. Won't overpay.

    He-man $
    Beastman $
    Teela $
    Fisto $
    Sorceress $
    Whiplash $

    Now... These are major characters and giant holes in any collection. In my opinion, and with my collecting style... These figures are worth whatever you have to pay to get them.

    Unflocked Mossman $20+shipping
    Shadow Weaver $60+shipping
    Wun-Dar $60+shipping

    I guess Shadow Weaver might depend on your view of pop/ filmation.

    If and only if I needed only one or two to complete my collection and considering that most of the released motuc so far are long gone may be I would pay more than $75 for the one I need.
    Right now I need Roboto and I would pay $90+shipping for him as it is on ebay, but obviously I would try to find a cheaper one. Last month I purchased King Randor 1st release for $50 final which was good considering that most of Randors are above 50 w/o shipping
    I know that you may be interested in the different prices for each figure listed but IMO, I think it is meaningless if you need one to complete a collection it doesn't matter which character you need

    If I wanted them, I'd be willing to pay whatever the going price was.

    Other than the Bronze Grayskull ,I got them all upon initial release. I ended up paying about $100 shipped for Bronze Grayskull and it was well worth it to me to complete the collection up to that point.

    Generally speaking I would like to not pay much more than the original cost plus shipping for any particular figure, plus the shipping to me.


    With that said each figure has had some value above that I was often willing to pay. Beastman, Sorceress I got pretty good deals on from board members.

    I am still hunting one of these, and I would prefer not to mention outloud what I would spend. But will say based on an exchange between you and I, that value I gave you is what I would pay for loose and which I mentioned that not as some sympathy plea or anything. And carded maybe the median between our values.

    Hard to say as I have them all except SDCC King Grayskull and SDCC King Grayskull Bronze

    I suppose I would pay whatever the market value was for them if I needed/wanted them both (I have the carded King Grayskull so I have no interest in the SDCC ones)

    I guess if I didn't have Teela or Shadow Weaver I would pay what I could to get them - but I would shop for the lowest prices. Since I don't need them I have no idea what they are currently going for.

    Honestly if I really wanted them I'd be willing to pay prob between $50-100 for each one, but I don't think you'll be able to find any for that cheap. Bottom line is, sure we all want stuff at cost but that's not gonna happen, most of the posts above are not with realistic numbers of what people would sell stuff for. Even people selling full collections now know the value of the rarer figures and wouldn't sell them for that dirt cheap. I know the posts are just of what people "would" pay but I think a lot of that has to do with them having subs and having all the rarer figures already.

    For the record I have all of those minus unflocked mossman and SDCC KG.

    You are correct. The more common version has unflocked ears.

    I would also say the individuals desire towards said figure. Fisto for me, I wouldn't pay much more than cost for just to complete the collection I had has a kid, but based on his going price I am not going to bother trying to get him.

    No more than $30 for any of them. $30, because that is just under the price I pay when I buy from Matty with shipping. I actually got a Fisto on Amazon cheaper than I did purchasing on Matty.....I was lucky. I don't believe in paying more for a figure than what they are worth, so I do not support any dealers with a high markup on collectibles. If you don't pay the high price, the price will fall......but there is always somebody willing to pay more and keep these dealers in business.

    This is me, I refused to pay $80 for MAA & Teela, and $60 for Tri-Klops before BF/CM 2011, I could have simply lived without them, sure they would have left a huge gaping hole in my collection, but to me price outweighs desire to have something. Thankfully the BF/CM sale happened and I was able to acquire them at a fraction of what Ebayers wanted. Which is why I said what I said about the SDCC KG, I don't care about it for one, because honestly would be fine paying $35 from BBTS for the 2010 variant. Maybe once MOTUC is over and MOTU fans have moved to new things eventually you can find a decently priced Fisto.

    The most "rare" in terms of numbers produced on your list is Flocked Moss Man. He was made by mistake at super low numbers and instead of pitching them, they sold it as a variant.

    How rare is he? My mother got him for me on eBay for my birthday without a white mailer for 60 something dollars shortly after his release. I traded the mailer from my unflocked one to him. Is he rarer than the SDCC King Grayskulls?

    Relatively new guy here (started collecting MOTUC last August). The prices below reflect how I feel about each one and the prices reflect what I would pay if I had all that kind of coin. Even if I was a lotto winner, below is what I would want to pay. Of course if I won the lotto I would probably pay more, but I would still "want" to pay what is listed below based on the fact Mattel could be doing a little better job with re-issues of majorly popular figs.

    SDCC King Grayskull $50 (I have the new edition one coming and would only keep this one MOC, and it's not worth that much to me)
    SDCC King Grayskull bronze $75 (just don't like the forced uber rareness of a fig)
    ***added*** SDCC King Grayskull "spirit" $100 (I like the idea which is why I would pay a little more)
    He-man $22 (I have him and think a fig that was in stock last year and is still in stock this year, should keep the old price)
    Beastman $35 (about what I paid for mine last year)
    Teela $50 (I know she's not coming back, but she should)
    flocked Mossman $22 (the variant doesn't do anything for me)
    Shadow Weaver $22 (don't know the character)
    Wun-Dar $35 (price increase based solely on the fact Matty made this silly version)
    Fisto $65 (I WANT him!)
    Sorceress $50 (WANT!)
    Whiplash $35 (is really that rare? I'm still gonna try to find a deal on him, or a trade)
    Take it easy,
    Drew

    Looking for: deals on MOTUC Roboto, King He-Man, Meckaneck, Zoar (from Sorceress) and more!
    Have to trade: A couple MOTU vintage, GIJOE (vintage 3.75 inch and 25th Anniversary figures and vehicles), Star Wars, Transformers (movie line), and Marvel Universe and a few Marvel Legends, plus MORE!.
