Horrible Hamilton in excellent condition sells for $500. Here's the eBay listing:
https://www.ebay.com/itm/1964-HORRIBLE-HAMILTON-by-REMCO-Hamiltons-Invaders-COMPLETE-WORKING-Rare-/113348598238?nordt=true&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.m43663.l44720



Horrible is the signature HI piece, and HI collectors want a nice one to display, so they bring a good price these days. The ones that usually pop up on eBay have missing pieces and no longer work. Even the damaged ones sell for $100-$200 or more. I wouldn't be surprised to see an excellent one break the $500 threshold before too long. There aren't many around anymore in undamaged working condition. Horrible Hamilton isn't as scarce as the HI Cave but demand outstrips supply more for the big bug than any other HI piece it would seem.

Amazingly, another of the scarce HI Caves popped up on eBay on a BIN for $90. It was snatched up immediately. Sellers are underpricing the cave pieces which should probably bring more like $150-$300 depending on condition. I'd like to see one listed in an auction to see what it would really sell for, but sellers list them as Buy-It-Now when they rarely become available and they are bought very quickly in the $100 price range. These things are corrugated cardboard and most were torn up and discarded not long after kids got those Sears exclusive HI playsets on Christmas morning. I was fairly careful with my toys as a kid and my HI Cave didn't last a month. They're probably nearly as scarce as the original shipping boxes, or maybe more-so.

Those sets are truly stunning, did these sell already and any idea as to price if they did?

It's a high price although I'm not so sure for something like this, it seems a fair deal to me (even though it would be way outside my budget). I'll take a look at the others in a bit but thanks for the link.

That's not me in the picture, and sadly I don't have such a Helmet and Grenade Pistol set. I do though have two different M.I.B. Grenade Pistols plus a loose helmet with box:
