View Full Version : $? RM Robin -- with repro mask?
Jan 1, '08, 10:05 PM
Can anyone offer their opinion as to the general value of this little fella? I'm considering a trade for my SI Clark Kent, and would like to know how RC Robin rates. Thanks in advance!

i would guess 250 maybe a little less. mike

while were on the subject, how much for one with a real mask? I mean, how much more value can a mask add?

I sold mine for $225, he was mint with a repro mask.
MegoNinja, if he indeed has the original mask, you might be talking four digits here.

Thanks for the figures, guys. And by that, I mean the numbers. The numbers for the figures. Oh, go figure....

glad to help. megoninja the mask is a big difference becuase its so rare to find one thats origina. i would say the 750-1000 range if in mint shape could be wrong though. mike

Well the last 2 Window boxed examples of RM Robins with real masks both sold at or around $1000.00.
A nice boxed T1 PM Robin will sell for between $200-$300
A nice loose T1 PM Robin will sell for between $50-$75
A nice loose RM Robin with repro/no mask sells for between $100-$200
See if you can crack the formula and see how much value a real mask adds.

I bought my RM Robin WITH original mask at a toy show for $400 about 2 years ago. I suspect it would have went higher on ebay, so that might not be the best guide, but at least it's a start.

wow, that is a fair bit. I was hoping to add a RM Robin to my collection instead of ever having to buy a PM Robin, I guess I might have to go with repro parts (I HATE repro parts).
thanks for the help guys, does a mask by itself ever appear on eBay, or are the chances of the poorly made mego strap falling off after 30 years far too high?

In 6 years of collecting Mego, I've never seen just a loose original RMR mask on ebay. In that same time I can count the original loose RMR figures complete with original mask that I've seen on ebay on one hand.

Yeah, I remember that one, Dave, you lucky dog.
MegoNinja, I'm not a big fan of repros either, but sometimes you have no choice, and have to give in to a repro part here and there.
The masked Robin is one example of that. He still looks awesome with the repro mask, it's well made, the figure is still worth $200.
Same thing with my Zorro.
Dave helped me a lot with that figure. The head/figure is all original as well as the sword. The hat is an original Wyatt Earp one that was dyed and painted black...the shirt and pants are from a Lion Rock Chinese Guerilla Fighter figure, it fits right on the money, same type of cloth material as well. And Dave made me this very cool cape for it...so while it's not an entirely original Zorro, it's still a pretty kickass figure.

over ten years ago I sold my original RMR with Original mask and back then I got $495.00 for it so it's up there. It's one of the things I wish I had never sold as It seems I might not ever get another one.
