    An Unofficial MOTUC Price Guide!

    I spent a lot of time on eBay last year as I constantly checked auctions for good deals on any missing MOTUC figures. Patience paid off in the long run because I was able to find some nice deals and strategic lots that filled in missing gaps. The marketplace here was also very helpful!

    Anyway, I recently revisited eBay and looked at the current rates for every MOTUC figure, as if I were starting over again. I compiled the latest data to present a comprehensive "Unofficial MOTUC Price Guide"!

    Here are some basic rules/disclaimers...

    1. The prices only reflect eBay prices, no other sites were referenced.
    2. The prices are for MOC figures only.
    3. No differentiation was made for 1st releases and "The Original" re-releases. Running variants were also not taken into account.
    4. These are actual bids by consumers, not Buy-it-Now prices. In most cases, the price listed is an average of the 10 most recently purchased auctions.
    5. The prices are for single figures only; No lots of multiple figures were taken into account.
    6. Best Offers were not taken into account because the settled sale price is not shown.
    7. Packaging that featured additional changes, like AFA grading or autographs, were disregarded.
    8. Prices include the total cost with shipping included.
    9. Only US auctions were taken into consideration...International shipping would've thrown off the average costs.
    10. Evergreen Matty Essentials figures were automatically listed at Matty's price, with tax and shipping included, since they're still available at "retail".

    Now that all that is out of the way, here it is...

    Overall, this is a rough guide and will not remain accurate for long due to the constant activity on eBay. So keep in mind that these prices reflect recent activity as of October 2013 and March 2014. In the future, I suggest consulting eBay's completed auctions to get the latest going rates.

    I hope this is helpful and thanks for looking!

    Definitely props on putting this together! Interesting stuff.

    Damn, didn't know Barbarian Vykron wasn't going for that much different than the others. I should sell/trade my MIB Tank-Or one and upgrade to a MIB Barbarian one.

    Shadow Weaver goes for nearly a third of what the sub costed that year. Crazy stuff! Glad I got mine!

    Thanks, guys...This was actually a neat project to work on! I know my work is brainwashing me when I start crunching numbers for fun, Heheh!

    At first, I was looking up how much SDCC & Bronze King Grayskull and Color-Changing Orko were expected to cost if I ever decide to buy them and it slowly spiraled out of control. I also felt like looking up the Sorceress, Teela, Fisto, and Scareglow to see if the prices are really as bad as I've heard (Yikes, they are!), then wondered about "pegwarmers" like Netossa and Mighty Spector. Before I knew it, I had prices on a bunch of figures and decided to finish up the entire collection during my downtime.

    The results are pretty interesting, though. All the TRU packs, except He-Man and Faker, are going for about the same price as the single figure by itself. There are quite a few "pegwarmers" in the series, too. Poor Hurricane Hordak...Nobody likes him!

    Two big things to also keep in mind, though. For every purchased auction, there are also a lot of unsold ones that are simply set too high. Barbarian Vykron, for example, is usually set in the $60+ range but none of those have sold recently. I also noticed several "Best Offers" that were accepted. I'm not sure what the final sale prices were in those cases but it's a hopeful sign that sellers are being willing to negotiate on unsold stock.

    The big-ticket items, like Sorceress, Teela, and Fisto are hard to come by at lower prices but it's not impossible. I saw that some people snatched up decent deals, at the right time when few bidders were around, while I was getting the averages. Overall, though, it's not a bad time for a collector to pick up some missing gaps in their collections, especially for common figures.

    Of course, I still recommend going to our Marketplace forums first...I found the most helpful people there. Where else could I get multiple Catra Filmation masks after I lost mine?...Twice!

    Thanks! It takes over 1,000 auctions to cover everyone so it's probably not something I can update too frequently...But perhaps I can try to do quarterly updates. If anyone wants to be a part of a "Price Guide Team" and split up the workload, it wouldn't be so bad to keep this updated for future reference. I definitely wouldn't mind if anyone wants to help out. All you need is to keep a few simple formulas in Excel and you're set!

    Argh, Rattlor! I knew someone was missing...Ok, lemme go look him up!

    Edit: Rattlor is now included, thanks for letting me know!

    Nice job in putting this together. Don't forget "Flocked Mossman". I think the last one sold for around $80.

    He said he wasn't going to do variants ... I'm assuming this is one of those. And for the record, I'm pretty confident the last one sold for $150 and please don't ask me why I know that, lolz

    Definitely helpful, especially for those who are just joining in the fun, or those who are trying to catch up on certain figures.

    I believe that certain figures, i.e. Wun-Dar, Shadow Weaver, King He-Man, Fangman, etc. will continue to go up in price due to their "rareness."

    Thanks for the list and the hard work put into it Micro!

    I wasn't going to include Flocked Moss Man because I rarely even see him but it turns out that a couple recently sold, so I added him to the list. The only other significant variants that I probably won't include are all the different versions of He-Ro. It's tricky to know which one you have when he's still MOC and only loose sellers seem to be able to confirm the spellstone color and whether or not he has the SDCC stamp on his chest. Most He-Ro's on eBay are simply listed as a SDCC figure but I haven't seen a listing that gets specific about these details. So I'll just keep He-Ro as a single listing.

    Hey, never say never! Patience is the key to getting the big players, it takes time but opportunities do come up. One of the Beast-Man's in the average I calculated actually sold in the $40 range and someone scored a Sorceress for less than $100. In my case, it took about a year to find a decent deal for Battle Armor Faker. I also lucked out with Teela and paid less for two (I really wanted that extra one to give her that vintage Warrior Goddess look!) than her price guide "value". Remember, eBay isn't the only option out there!

    Thanks, I hope this is encouraging to new collectors...I wish I had this type of data when I jumped in last year. For the most part, a sizable MOTUC collection isn't too hard to attain, if you pick your spots. Don't forget that figure lots, which I don't count in my averages, can also be a great way to pick up nice sets of figures at a good value. Another tip I learned is to check the seller's other auctions. Almost all sellers will give you combined shipping rates on multiple purchases and you can pick out your own "lot" from a single seller that has lots of offerings. I was able to cherry-pick a set of Whiplash, Beast-Man, Scareglow, and about six others from a seller who sent me a big box that averaged about $40 per figure, shipped...That's pretty much Matty "retail" prices!

    Yeah, there are a lot of Ram Man's out there right now, so his price is one that will be constantly fluctuating.

    I appreciate all the positive feedback on this, I'm glad to see that this guide is helpful!

    When I got mine, it was $90+ I believe shipping was about $20 or so to Canada but that was last year when he first went on sale.

    Actually, that is Matty's price once you factor in shipping and tax!

    Right now, Granamyr is at an average cost of $138.52...He was originally around $95 or so, $80 plus shipping and tax, when he was offered in December.

    This is a great list. Lately I have been trying to track down a Teela, Shadow Weaver and Wundar, seems like I am going to have some hundred dollar holes in my collection. Very accurate and neat little piece of information.
    The rest I am glad I got when I did. : )

    Micro-man,great list, could you post this on the matty forums. Many fans over there have been asking for a list like this as well. I do not want to post it myself,you did a lot of work here and I want to make sure you get the credit. Thanks.
