    Hi everyone! I hope you guys can help me?

    Anyone know the average price on these 2 guys? I've been scouring ebay listings and prowl goes from $30-$80 while I've seen camshaft closing at $60-$100. I just wanted to know at what price point each goes from reasonable to overpriced?

    eBay IS basically, the price guide.

    If that is where those figures are ending (with bids, not Buy it Nows), then that is the current market "value" for those figures.

    You might be able to find both cheaper via a board trade, however.

    I got another one for 15$ loose complete mint. Average on mine is 20$ that's for Prowl.
    I wouldn't pay anything more than 30$ even for an MISB one.
    Camshaft is an entire different ball game.

    yeah I paid $60 on these boards last year for a misb camshaft. alts have lost some value so you still might be able to find one around or less than that price.

    like seali me said prowl is a bit more on the less expensive end.

    have you checked the junkion exchange here? I saw a loose camshaft for 45 a few days ago. there's probably some people with prowl's too.

    Thanks! I just didn't want to overpay, at least now I have a ceiling.

    I've messaged a couple people with Alternators in their sales page, no replies yet. Just have to be patient for a deal to appear, I suppose.

    Again, thank you for all the replies!

    While some of you may not pay over $30 for an Alternators Prowl, obviously there are some out there that are willing to, based on the completed eBay auctions. Prowl isn't one of the more common Alternators, though it's not a "rare" for the line.

    Also, the value is different for those who are mib or misb collectors, as the red boxed version is a bit hard to find, since it wasn't released in as large of quantity as the other red box Alternators.

    Camshaft, on the other hand, is one of the harder to find figures, probably second only to Swerve and other exclusives (Rumble, Ravage, Nemesis Prime, and Hot Rod). Also consider that Mirage was a case mate.

    Yeah, Camshaft is the last Alternator I require to complete the line for myself. I saw one for $75 a few months back on the Junkion Exchange, but that's the lowest I had seen. Hard bugger to find.

    Camshaft was hard to find when he was new, much less these days. That's a toy on my list of "Saw it once, only once, and bought it (thank goodness)".

    So $75 is low? Was it loose or MIB? Damn, saw an ebay auction about to close a few days ago for a loose Camshaft for $60
