Make sure he's not broken before you buy.

May I should have rephrased that.

Any helpful hints.

Grumble, grumble.

There are a few different variants which change the value, complete I would say between £50-£80 depending on version and condition. Watch out for yellowing on the blue and the one pictured is missing his Gung-ho style gun.

It's worth while spending an hour or so checking yojoe or the Bellomo book to understand the 3 main variations. Version A is concidered the rarest and commands the most money. I paid a LOT of money to get mine from a good seller and it is pretty minty with his uncut FC and all accessories. His black visor can be an issue nowadays as there's some vey good repro's doing the rounds and a lot of sellers just don't know the difference :-( Normally Version A goes for £120-160+, B & C about £70-90, maybe that sounds a bit much but when I bought mine 2 years ago I was losing bids at just under £200 for the A so it shows that people were paying that amount! Another thing is check the elbows for cracking as well as the groin, both seem to be really prone to cracking.

Lash him to a ducking stool and drop him in a pond. If he drowns, he's innocent.

I agree with Graham on this, paid $175 for my version A with uncut filecard. I havent bought the B or C version (yet) because they are hard to find complete and getting more and more expensive.

Interesting reading. It does seem that on Ebay the BIN prices have a huge range. I shall have to keep my eagle eyes open for a good opportunity.
