it's hard to say, there's a lot of macross veritech fighters out there, new and old, and there's this one flimsy knock-off one all over e-bay that's real cheap plastic thrown together (but still an okay-looking figure). do you have the link to the auction?

They are both obviously the real thing, but $710 to start out seems pretty high to me. Not sure if the Macross figure is that valuable, but I'd top out a Jetfire in that condition at $200, absolute maximum. So, $500 for the other figure? That's way too much, methinks. You'd better be a HUGE Macross fan if you're willing to pay that.

Edit: I also noticed a little bit of yellowing on the Macross figure's nose, that's gonna bring the value down a bit, unless it's just the way the light's hitting it. Also, you live in Singapore, and he doesn't list prices for international bidders, so he either won't ship there, or is gonna charge you an arm and a leg for it.

It seems to me that the only real difference in the two molds is the nosecone. Jetfire's looks more rounded than the Macross guy's. Other than that, they should be identical. I can't really comment on the Macross guy's value or anything like that, since I stick to TF's I don't like the green eyes, though.
