Fantastic looking over this thread, so many memories of being a kid again. To me and my bunch of friends at junior school, these were like our version of pogs/trading cards - we were swapping ships all the time! Still got a ton of loose ones around somewhere, as well as the Bronze Enterprises, runabout and shuttle, still in it's box (near-mint condition as well). Would love to see them made again using today's modern standards. :)

Man I wish I would have kept these.
I had all the micros and I managed to score them at retail.
I even had multiples of some of the harder ships.
Didnt think they would be so hard to get later.
I sold or traded them all years ago.
I do somewhere have a defiant, voyager, and all the enterprises but E somewhere but I havnt found them as of yet.
I did find my aliens micro drop ship.

Holy crap... I'm too much of a hoarder to sell any of them, but I have a little plastic utility box that's probably worth it's weight in Gold-Pressed-Latinum if these are the prices that single, loose, Galoob MicroMachines are going for!

The not-often-seen Franco-Germanic packaging. Some spirited bidding drove this example up to $14.22 excluding shipping from Yurrp. And that, as we all know, is a bargain when it comes to Star Trek Micro Machines, which are worth more than sterling silver per ounce still, in 2017.

Set XI, aka the one with that blasted HMS Bounty, Farragut and Spacedock Shuttle sold for $28.51 w/out shipping from the UK recently.

 

Very well bought all things considered, because unopened sets with that Bounty are worth their weight in... certainly sterling silver if not gold. (Even I don't have a Bounty).

Here are a couple solid sales indicate of where some desirable Micro Machines are trending: set XI with the Bounty brought $25.80 + $12.29 shipping while the bottom Voyager set brought $31.00 + $12.29 shipping, both from the same seller.

 

Well bought on that Bounty set -- that's still a bit of a bargain -- while the Voyager set achieved an impressive result after 7 bids.

Here's something of a rarity, even in this relatively well-saturated market: the small set with the Enterprise-A, which I never saw in stores back when these were new. (I don't think these were foreign market, but I am not sure).

 

Unsold on eBay with a starting price of $46.00. Perhaps something for the packaging maniacs only.

These were released over here in the UK and were only available in Argos stores as far as I remember. I know it's in my collection somewhere.

 

Take care,

Thanks for the info, I had a feeling these were Euro-market or something, but I wasn't sure. Very cool set -- it's like a difference between American and European food portions in restaurants : )

A loose USS Voyager micro machine sold for $25.00 + $2.61 shipping in the last quarter of 2017. That's a pretty strong result, all things, considered, and quite a bit north of 1/3 price for an MIB 3-pack with the same Voyager in it.

 

This remains one of the 3 or 4 rarest Micro Machine 3-packs, and it's still drawing plenty of bids.
