    I still need Ratchet and Flareup. I can't believe it's gotten so high for Ratchet. I can remember a year ago that could be found around $100-$150. I should of gotten one then. Would of been a deal compared to this.

    I was watching that one too. Had no interest...just wanted to see how high it would go. I never would have paid that much. It's a nice figure, but not that nice. Not to me anyway.

    Not long back I got a Botcon Ratchet for roughly $250 (buy it now, and i negotiated to have international shipping included in the price). I was on the edge of "No way I'm paying that much!" the whole time, but checking out auctions since which go from three to four hundred helped me feel more confident about my own purchase. I know there's a lot of people who got Ratchet for much less, but at least now I know I could've done much worse (or got none at all).

    Man, I like this figure, but it FLOORS me how much he goes for. I don't have one, and probably never will.... he came along before I got into TF collecting, and has shot so far past my price range that I could never justify it to myself. I guess everyone just wants him to stand alongside their Classics..... it's frustrating having a big gap where classic G1 characters like Ratchet and Ironhide ought to be, and I guess for most folks this is close enough.

    I hope the attendee exclusives this year don't shoot up quite so high.... at least not for a few months. :)

    Could be wrong here. BC'05 Ironhide and Ratchet were always pretty expensive on eBay, but the prices didn't really take off until Classics reared its beautiful head across the stores of the world.
