    Ive been considering selling my Alt Swerve, RM Screamer and Seekers, but dont know how much to ask for them. I know that Swerve is rather rare, and the RMs are highly sought after or something like that. Thanks for the help :)

    Pfft. You'd be surprise how high Alt. Swerve goes on ebay. At most (I believe) would be between $60-70 after shipping included.

    It's almost going to be a year since its release and prices are tripling. This was shortpacked, so yeah, rare for those completist that missed out.

    Swerve goes for $75 or so MISB, and about $50 loose. I have seen them go as high as $100 MISB, but that seems to have been an anamoly. Occasionally loose ones will go for as little as $40, but that's about the bottom end at this point.

    RM Seeker mold has suffered as more people saw first hand how crappy the mold is. Starscream briefly enjoyed a period of being highly sought after for the first few months it was out, but has since dropped way back and now goes for about original retail, if not a little less. Starscream commands about $20-25, and the Thundercracker/Skywarp set runs about $40.

    Are these prices for MIB, opened, or for the sealed ones? Because mine are MIB, opened.

    RM Starscream is still available at retail for $19.99 so an opened one will go for considerably less.

    RM Skywarp & Thundercracker probably will go for the $40 retail opened as they are still pretty hard to come by.

    Alt Swerve is about $40 to $50 opened without the sticker on the hood.

    an MISB Swerve is creeping up to the $90 mark.

    $35 is the bottom floor for the RM Skywarp and Thundercracker, RM Starscream can still pull $20.

    (all prices are for MISB items)

    Sigh.. and I passed Swerve at Target and TRU twice too.. could've made some money out of it. :redface:

    I got RM SS and Seekers for $35 shipped on Ebay so you can find a good deal if you look. But mostly they are priced as mentioned by others.

    Holy F*** had no idea Swerve had gone so high.


    Glad my completionist streak did me a favour for once.

    I just sold a MISB Swerve for $50 plus shipping. I don't think he's worth as much as the claims here. Before listing him on the boards, I did a closed auction check and $61 was the high mark. Even at $11 less than that, it took a while before I got an offer on him. He did sell at my list price though.
